Greetings from your DGC Team | Bringing your club closer
Monday, 15 July 2019

Last week we hosted out annual Pampoenkraal Festival Week and it was such a massive success. If you missed out this year, be sure to book next year and join in on the fun!

We would like to thank each one of our sponsors for their generous contribution towards all the events. We greatly appreciate you and look forward to working with you in the near future!

We have some fantastic news regarding our home grown professional, JP Strydom - He shot 67 at Woodhill Country Club to book his spot at the AfrAsia Bank Tournament happening in Mauritius. JP will be playing at the Heritage Golf Club from the 30th November 2017 to the 3rd December 2017.

Well done on this incredible achievement, JP!
We wish you all the best.

Yours in Golf,

We had our year-end league dinner on Tuesday 21st November which was hosted by Meg Neethling.

Our League Manager, Freda Heerink, recited the following poem that she had written

2017 Ladies League (written by Freda Heerink)

In the League of 2017 we had lots of fun,
If not great success in rain, wind and sun.

With Ingrid, Judy, Mona and Florence not losing a single game,
Durbanville will however not hang its head with any shame.

Cheryl takes 1st prize in playing every match,
And for Durbanville new players - Tracey and Yvette - were a real catch.

Many thanks to Yvonne, Marge, Margaret and Pam for your grace,
To always be willing to fill an empty space.

Elmari always goes quietly about doing her thing
While the other Tracy has no centre of gravity in her swing.

When Michelle found a permanent partner at last,
She started to shine with losses in the past.

Phindi might have to be spoken to about her socks
For the dress code of league uniform she’s out of the box

Leonie always skips work to play every game,
We sure hope she’s not fired, that will be a great shame.

Brenda and Tyna are joined at the hip,
A big thanks to Tyna for captaining the ‘skip’.

Marguerite never looks nervous and is always so cool,
And nobody will dare argue with Helene about a rule.

Calet not only hits the ball out of sight,
But arranges teams and adds such spirit, it’s a true delight.

Meg is always the willing taxi driver, although sometimes rough,
And for this evening we can’t thank her enough.

And then there is me -
With mud on my face, a real disgrace.
But for next year’s matches just watch this space

Well done, ladies on a fantastic year!

Yours in Golf,
Florence Harding
DGC’s Ladies Captain

A new channel in the crown of the Srixon F-65 Fairway Woods, offers both added ball speed, and a higher,
easier launch. More consistency and more distance.


If we can get you here, then you’ll hit more fairways, you’ll be able to attack greens with short and mid-Irons, and you’ll find Metalwoods so much easier to use from the fairway. Is that something you think you could manage?
