100 Club Draw Friday 23rd Feb 6pm: Attendance Prize R3000
I had a wonderful day on Wednesday playing in the Ladies SA Masters Pro Am at San Lameer. Stacy Bregman was our Pro. What a lovely lady and brilliant golfer she is. She cruised around the course in 69 blows, making it look easy. Also in our four ball was Lukas Potgieter, who has been very influential in the development of San Lameer, and Peter Matkovich who designed and built the San Lameer golf course. Peter has built many courses in SA and around and was very entertaining to play with. His knowledge of building and maintaining golf courses is endless.
San Lameer is in great shape and there will be some wonderful golf on show with the final round being Saturday. Make sure to go and watch the Ladies playing. There is plenty of talent from both South Africa and around the world!
Congratulations to all involved in the Bar and Kitchen alterations, it’s looking amazing! It is almost finished and the new space created in the bar, with simply shortening the one long extended side of the Bar. It is just fabulous and will most certainly enhance the total flow & usability of the whole area. One member quipped that he should now be able to sit at a table with his 4 ball when he comes in at the back of the field. Thanks to Mike Cole of Coles Kitchens, (Our great Nearest the Pin Sponsor on the Business Day!) Thanks to John Fox & the Committee and to all the staff and members involved in getting it all done in such a short time.
The Audi Centre Margate Business Day last Friday was won by Kevin Murray, Brian Joliffe and Ross McKay and a steady ghost.
Last weekend the ladies thoroughly enjoyed playing in The Champagne Day BB stab sponsored by Christa Sistermanns. Thanks again Christa, much appreciated! ‘Prost’ to you and Nik from all the delighted winners!
