President’s Trophy Winners
Hearty Congratulations to Riaan Croukamp & Johan Wentzel who won the President’s Trophy last Saturday.
Vic Pretorius is our Club President. He is also Chairman of Greens and it has been wonderful to see his passion for the golf course. The course has really flourished under his leadership.
What a feast of golf we have been able to watch on TV over the last five weeks!
So special to see Brandon Stone winning the Scottish Open and other young South Africans doing so well. It has been Links golf time of the year which I enjoy to both watch and play. The Men’s Senior Open was great with Gimenez beating Langer by a shot around the Old Course. Tom Watson beat his age and the standard of golf in very tough conditions was superb. Langer was amazing at Carnoustie shooting -1 for the week up against all the youngsters. There is no other sport where that can happen.
Well done Meyer!
Our great neighbour Meyer Du Toit at San Lameer has just been awarded Golf Club Manager of 2018 by the PGA of South Africa and he so deserves the recognition. Well Done Meyer!
San Lameer is looking great having just hosted a 2 day KZN PGA Pro Am and the Mark McNulty Pro/ Junior day which was a great success.
Growing the game of golf
Ongoing junior programs are vital so we are doing free golf on Sunday afternoons for juniors out of season and hopefully our numbers increase. Golf in general needs more youngsters and I’m not sure that youngsters and their parents totally understand what a life skill golf is. I do think that the success of our younger players on tour will create more interest.
The Annual Round-Table Golf Day
Last weekend was well supported and it was a very festive enjoyable day as always! Well done to Ettiene and his Round table team who organised the day.
