Spring Treatment was done last week and was followed by wonderful rains and now warm sunshine so the golf course is looking great and will be outstanding in another two weeks. We have planted some new trees and removed some others, like the two Raffia Palms on the 10th which has really transformed the look of the hole. A fever tree is in its place
We are also doing a lot of clearing which simply gives the course a feeling of space instead of being over-crowded. Thinning out the vegetation is like a great hair cut- needed every so often.
The new handicap system, course stroking and coloured tees are all in place. It will take a little time to get used to, but the conversion sheets and revised temporary scorecards are up in the Pro Shop, and you can also check numbers on the scoring computer in the Pro Shop. or download the new App
Everyone at Southbroom got chopped by about three shots which caused a bit of consternation initially, but not much has actually changed. What is changing are the Rules of Golf but that is only for the 1st of January 2019… More on that later.
Exciting events to look forward to
The Ryder Cup is shaping up to be a wonderful event once again and I can’t wait.
In the meantime, we have the Casa Toscana BB Stab on Saturday 15th Sept & Friday 21st Sept, something to look forward to!
The Audi Business Day on Friday 21st Sept will have Dave Phillips from Callaway doing a Callaway Ball Promo and a Wedge and Putter Display, with a Ryder Cup theme… He will be here from 9am on the putting green!
Spring Dinner Dance
The Spring Dinner dance was such a good evening. Thanks to all the members who made it so special, from the decorations made by the Ladies section, The Southbroom Legends band (Richard, Des Deon and Mel!) who sang and rocked the whole evening! Guest artists Wally (Malcolm) Greenland and Bob Dylan made a surprise entrance & Brandon and his team served an amazing buffet on the new serving counter. The atmosphere all round was just great. Lovely to see lotsa new faces as well!
Great results out on the course
The Trafalgar Presbyterian Church Day was well supported. Congratulations and thank you to the Players, the sponsors and Rev David & Jean, & the enthusiastic church committee. Hospice were just delighted with the most welcome items that the church could give them with the proceeds from the day.
Congratulations & well done to Dave Page for winning the monthly medal on a count out from Gary Purtell on a nett 70 under, and Sharon Turnbull Jackson winning the ladies on 73 net in tough conditions on Wednesday.
The Bertie Brown Knockout 2018 is down to the finals! Dave Page & Bob Carmichael will take on Paul Lawson & Peter Volcksoon. The Ladies Gerry’s Jug is being well contested and now it’s time for the Hugh Purtell Greensomes Knock-Out!
Watch the board for the draw!

The Changing Gears Pro Deo Spinathon was a great success!
What a great job Janet Humphrey and Deon Lehmann from Changing Gears Gym, and Elma from Karisma Hair & Beauty Studio did with the Spinathon on Saturday 1st in raising money for Pro Deo Cancer Care. It is is such a good cause and great to see many of our members supporting the day, spinning and getting fit. Changing Gears Gym is great and just fantastic to have in Southbroom. We really are lucky to have them here. Visit them; Janet and Deon will get you into shape, slim and energised for Summer.
Karisma Hair & Beauty is also a firm favorite of many Southbroomers, from haircuts to pedicures top-to-toe. Call in to see Elma and her team on 039 316 8399.
