Last week, I had a wonderful trip down south of Port Elizabeth to St Francis Links to play in the Pro-Pro road trip organized by Jeff Clause. It is such a beautiful part of South Africa and a truly great golf course. Jeff and his wife Liesl and their team do such a fantastic job in making your time there quite special. St Francis Links is a ‘must play’ golf course. Built on the dunes by Jack Nicklaus, it is quite demanding but such fun to play and it is in great condition. At times you almost feel you’re on an Irish Links. A breeze and a few natural grassy bunkers will get your attention and test all your skills – all part of the fun.

St Francis Links

Let me know if you are headed that way and I will make your booking for you, and for sure Jeff and his team will look after you.

Southbroom has greened up quickly after the lovely rain on Monday and is looking so good.

Lovely to see the course wet again

It is hard to believe we are already into August and only four weeks away from spring treatment, but we have lots going on before that…. The Chicken Run this Friday afternoon, A 9 hole Par 3 contest this Sunday from 1 pm – bring the kids and have a family afternoon!

On Sunday 13th August we are having another 5/10km breakfast fun run/walk – such great family time. This time, whilst waiting for prize giving, there will be a putting contest for kids I will supply the putters and balls. Registration is from 06h30 and we will start at 07h00. Dogs on a lead welcome.

On Saturday the 19th we are hosting the Audi Quattro Cup which is a country wide Greensomes event. Johan Kinsey-Allers from South Coast VW and Audi and his team will look after all the field and a light supper is included after play. It’s a special Day and standard Green fees and competition rates apply.

Towards the end of the month, we are very proud to host the KZN Amateur. There are times where members can play and we will organise a good rate for members at our neighbouring clubs. Lastly, on Wednesday 30th August test your general knowledge with a good Quiz Night! It is a busy month so come and have some fun.

Team Wild Coast Cross Fit


There’s no question that for a beginner,
golf can be an intimidating game, especially 400
yards out from the hole.

But there is so much fun to be had from just
40 yards. No one said you have to start at 400 yards.

Most women who take up the game discover fun for life,
and friends for life.

Derek and Sheena
