Club Championship weekend was once again a wonderful event and a huge well done to all the members who played. It’s always a bit stressful, but I suppose that is what makes Club Champs and winning it, even a little more special. The weather was great, with some wind on Saturday and a still but quite hot, Sunday. Both the Men’s and Ladies’ Championship divisions were won convincingly. Gavin Sole was as steady as ever, shooting 69 and 68 for a wonderful total of 137 and Heather Anderson making 79 and 81, playing beautifully for a total of 180. Both players defending their titles. Gavin has now claimed the Club Champion crown 9 times equalling Ivan Curlewis’ record and this is Heather’s 5th Championionship win – just brilliant.
In A Div second place Kevin Murray edged out Malcolm Greenland on a count out and Janet Humphrey made a big comeback on Sunday for the Ladies second spot. We had a Men’s ‘Over 60’ Gross prize which was both sponsored and won by Malcolm Greenland,with Chris Miller in second spot.Jan Roos played some very steady golf to win the B Division Championship. He has been working hard on his game, so well done Jan. Grant Richards was in second place in the B div with our ace club mechanic, Nic Van Deventer, finishing third.
Malcolm Moorley won the C Division with 71 points followed by Chris Huber and Graham Sole. Overall Nett winner was Andre Attfield on net 143 tied, but winning on a count from Malcolm Greenland.
The Ladies C Division was won by a very delighted Lesley Godley with 73 points ahead of two Swiss members, Anita Landolf with 67 points and Regina Bosshart with 66 points. The Putting Championship was won by Gavin Sole after a good final with Jan Roos and I think everyone had a fabulous weekend. Great course, great food and a fine weekend with friends.
The winner of the Dad’s Army Competition played on the 6th March was Emil Hierhold on 40 points, runner-up was Norman Farrell on 37 points. The Alliance winners were Emil Hierhold, John Fox & Tony Holness.
Dad’s Army wishes Horst Lehrer a fond farewell as he is returning to Austria. Horst, you have been a staunch supporter of Dad’s Army over the years and we will miss you. Everything of the very best.Kind regards,

Now in his 47th year of enjoying his golf, Southbroom Member Hans Kok had the wonderful experience of his first hole-in-one last week. Him and Gjertrud were playing at the Wild Coast with Joseph and Margaret Stoellinger on Tuesday 13th March, where Hans aced the 13th hole at 13h00! How enjoyable!
