2017 here we come!

Hello everyone and welcome back to a new year!

I trust you all had a blessed festive season/holiday break and are back and recharged for 2017!

Sean and his team are just finishing the summer treatment of the greens as I write this. Verti-cutting, over-seeding and sanding of the greens along with good fertilization will ensure they are strong and healthy through the winter. The rest of the course is looking spectacular after all the superb rains.

Just a reminder that if you have not paid your affiliation fee of R560, you will be requested to do so before playing golf. We pay this over to the golf union on your behalf, based on our membership lists as at the 1st January, so if you didn’t resign before 31st December, you are liable for this and subs for 2017. That’s not a bad thing though, as being a member of this amazing club is one of the best investments you can make!

Our next members’ party is on the 27th January. It is a Barn Dance, presented by a lovely, talented lady! All members, family and friends are invited. Please dress up in your western/cowboy gear and be ready for a jol! Delicious food with a western feel will be on sale. This is a great way to start the new year together. Tables can be booked with Roz on (011) 907 8906. Don’t miss this and bring everyone you know!

The leagues will be under way very soon and Todd, Jan and Awie are hard at work putting everything together. The lists are up on the noticeboard, so if you would like to play league, please put your name down. They will contact all interested parties to get together and choose captains and teams. If you enjoy competitive golf, this is definitely for you!

The Bowls Reading Trophy is this weekend and we wish all our bowlers good luck as they prepare for this historic event!

Well done to Janet Blyth, who won the Barrel of Fortune on Friday evening.

The 100 Club is once again starting fresh for the new year. I am selling numbers to all existing number holders, so please see me before the end of the month. Cost for the year is R240. Anyone who does not want their number can just let me know. There are quite a few members wanting one.

Have a great week and see you all at the club.

Happy golfing!
David & the Team
