Durbanville Golf Club's oldest golfing society, the “Durbanville 8”, kicked off their 43rd season...
in perfect conditions on Sunday morning followed with a family braai at the club. Starting the season in September we play one Sunday a month, with a total of eight rounds individual stableford. The golfer with the six best scores during the season wins the Durbanville 8 Cup and becomes captain for the following season.

After a three-month winter break, the Winelands Senior League got under way again at Bellville Golf Club last Tuesday. Durbanville, suffering a 4-1 defeat to Helderberg, rather wished we could have had another month off! In a somewhat freakish morning, with rounds taking a horrendous five hours fifteen minutes, three of Durbanville's tried, trusted and normally successful pairings all failed to make it past the 15th tee. Greg Baxter and Bob Rees, three down very early on in their match, twice drew level but an outrageous chip-in from one opponent on the 15th and a 23 handicapper parring hole after hole saw them just fail to gain a half on the 18th green. That left the pair of Mike Rolfe and Gordon Simmons to gain Durbanville's solitary point with a solid 3&2 win.

The unusual match play format in the Seniors League, whereby strokes are taken on your respective handicap stroke holes, means 19-24 handicappers receive two strokes on up to six holes. In addition they frequently stroke on their own on the supposedly easiest holes rather than the hardest. Consequently, higher handicappers having a good day can make it very difficult for their lower handicapped opponents - which deservedly happened with Helderberg on Tuesday.

Some changes are being looked at for next year, but unfortunately Durbanville's wishes for the league to revert to the traditional match play format whereby the lowest handicapper goes down to scratch, have been rejected.

With a bye in the next round, Durbanville next host Devonvale at home in November. So plenty of time to regroup!

Young Tom Morris, a four-time Open Champion, recorded the first known hole-in-one in golf history in the 1800s. There had been conflicting reports about the actual year it occurred, but now we have the actual date nailed down.

Please note the following policy when relacing in our lounge & bar area at Durbanville GC

It is our pleasure to have you enjoy a few rounds of drinks at our club, but your safety is also of concern to us! Our barmen have therefore been instructed to serve you drinks respectfully until such time as your behaviour proves that in the interest of your safety, (a) further drinks should be refused or, (b) we feel it necessary to arrange safe transport for you to get home. We have a special arrangement with “Sober Chauffeur”, and will ensure that for a nominal fee, your vehicle and yourself arrive home safely.

Most often, in the surrounds of our club, roadblocks are positioned to avoid drink-and-drive situations, and huge fines are levied for those caught over the limit. Kindly trust that we will not summon a chauffeur unnecessarily, however, in your best interest it is our prerogative. Your safety is important to us! We ask that you kindly refrain from persecuting those staff members who deem it necessary to enforce the policy.

Your co-operation is appreciated, as always.

When a rule is breached in stroke play

There are four main situations that apply when a Rule of Golf is breached in a stroke play competition:

1. A player breaches a Rule and includes the appropriate penalty on the score card that they sign and return.

2. A player unknowingly breaches a Rule and signs and returns their score card. The breach is brought to the Committee’s attention before the competition has closed.

3. As in 2, but the breach is brought to the Committee’s attention after the competition has closed.

4. A player knowingly breaches a Rule, but does not include the penalty incurred on their score card

So what are the considerations in each of these four scenarios?

Find out here.

Cathy McCartney Happel: A U.S. citizen is vacationing on her own in Ireland. She decides to play a round of golf and is paired with three local gents.

She takes a few practise swings, steps up to the first tee, and proceeds to hook the ball out of bounds. She shakes her head, reaches in her pocket, and re-tees another ball. She tells her playing partners that she is taking a mulligan. She pounds one down the centre of the fairway about 280 yards out.

With a big smile, she asks the others, "In the U.S., we call that a mulligan; was wondering what you called it here in Ireland?"

After a moment of silence, one of the locals replies,
"Hitting three."
