Weekly Newsletter from the Southbroom Pro Shop
|Greetings from Derek||Monday, 19 February 2018|
The Southbroom International Shootout was a happy weekend by all accounts. Thanks to all the players who participated. Congratulations to all the winning teams and a huge thank you to Colin McKay and Applied Oursourcing for his overall sponsorship! Saturday dinner evening was full and Winston was a great entertainer. We had teams from all over Europe and the UK, local Southbroomers, our regular Wild Boys from Johannesburg and even a team of golfing farmers from the Midlands.
Congratulations to Team Fish and Chips: Mari Fielden, Kerry Fielden & Gavin Sole who won by 1 point from Afro Scots 2, Gary Purtell, Ross McKay Robby Cumming & Russel Mackenzie.
This weekend the ladies are looking forward to The Champagne Day BB Stableford, sponsored by Christa Sistermanns.
The Ladies Nationals vs Internationals originally diarised for the 24th Feb has been postponed as most of the Ladies will be traveling to Kokstad to represent Southbroom in the annual Cecily Mackenzie Tournament.
Bar Alterations: The corner bar in the upper section will be reduced, to allow for a larger area to accommodate, functions, dinners and the three classics. The bulkhead will also be adjusted to fit the shape. Work will commence on shortly.
Kitchen Alterations: The kitchen improvements will commence on the 18 February 2018. The kitchen will be closed on the 18th from 13h00 and will re-open on 21 February 2018. We will however have a half way available with small breakfasts, sandwiches and salads.
Following the staff resignations, we advertised posts for the above positions.
1. Finance & Admin Assistant
2. Assistant workshop Assistant
We are pleased to advise you that we have appointed 3 replacements on a 3 month probational period.
Welcome to…Tanith Linden who has filled the post of Finance and Admin Assistant. She comes with experience in the golf industry, where she worked in top golf resorts in America and has all the credentials to replace Sarah. She is currently been trained by Sarah who will leave us on 28 February 2018
AB Cronje has been appointed as Workshop Assistant also on a 3 month probational period.
We are currently extending our restaurant hours to increase turnover and have also appointed Michelle Cronje, who has just completed a chef’s diploma with International Hotel School. This position was created to bolster staff, with a view to reducing both overtime and unnecessary transport costs.
The appointment of these three positions has not increased staff costs, but remains within budget.
Look out for Junior Golf on most Sunday afternoons! Local Juniors are invited to come and play at junior member rates from 2pm. Littlies need to be under the supervision of their parents and we are going to start including some 9 hole Ind Stab junior comps. Next one is Sunday 18th!
Note: not on 11th Feb as it’s the final day of the Southbroom International ShootOut.
Saturday 10th February
Wed 14th February
