Hi Everyone,

Want to play in the Gary Player/Ronan Keating Golf Day? Don't miss the Friday Lucky Draw this week!

Let’s start this week with the big news. We have secured space for 6 of our members to participate in the Gary Player/Ronan Keating Golf Day on the 26th May, alongside our lady and men’s captains. This includes attending the braai and prizegiving after the event, with a live performance by Ronan Keating with your partners!

With so many avid golfers in our membership, the committee decided the only way to allocate these 6 spots fairly is by lucky draw. This Friday evening at the R10K draw would be the perfect occasion to do this, because leaving it any longer would be too close to the 26th for people who win to make arrangements. So, HERE IS THE CATCH...If you would like to stand a chance to win one of these spots, you must be at the R10K draw this Friday night in person. We have planned a party and curry evening for Friday night too and this will go ahead. See menu below.

However, with the guaranteed increase in interest attending the draw will now have, Westlake Kitchen is faced with a huge dilemma for catering. Curry takes 2 days to prepare, which means Peter and his staff need to have all bookings in by Thursday morning AT 10AM. Please call Westlake Kitchen or the club to put your name down as soon as you read this and would like to join us for supper on Friday. Apologies for any inconvenience caused with the urgency, but we had our hands tied until we had the availability which came through last night. Good luck to everyone and let’s have a fantastic party on Friday!

All the alternative playing arrangements for the 26th will follow in next week’s newsletter. (Maybe you won’t need it if you are one of the lucky winners on Friday...)

Give mom a break this Mother's Day!

Don’t forget Mother’s Day this Sunday! Bookings are still open for the Mother’s Day lunch with Westlake Kitchen. Reserve a table here.

Sunday afternoon bookings

We are trying to make booking for Sunday afternoons as painless as possible for our members. In the past, members have booked all over the timesheet, meaning non-participants in competition would play among you. In an effort to resolve this issue, the Sunday Mixed will feature a slot from 12h00 to 12h45 on both tees which we will block-book for our members. This ensures everyone who wants to play in the Mixed gets their place. The only inconvenience is that you are not able to book online if we block-book these times.

However, you can simply give the club a call and the ladies will be happy to book your specific times for you. On the Wednesday morning before that specific Sunday, we will release the block booking and it will then be open to anyone to book online. As an added advantage the members that tee off first will no longer have to wait up to 2 hours before prizegiving, as everyone will finish closely together.

Let’s see how this goes and hopefully we will need to increase the size of the booking very soon! Join us on a Sunday afternoon. It is a lovely social game and always a happy, relaxed day!

An update on the water situation

News on the water project for the showers is good. The system has been installed and a dedicated breaker is being put in today. We will then commission the system tomorrow and see how it works. It was suggested that staff shower first in case there are any issues. We would hate our Captain or President to be unceremoniously covered in silt or worse! All things going well, showers should be up and running within a few days.


Hollowtining went very well this week. The rain came in the evening which was ideal and Raymond and his team once again did a sterling job. The greens should recover very quickly and the rain we have had is working its magic, especially with the mild temperatures we are experiencing.

The Harry Solomons League Players made us proud!

A hearty word of congratulations to our Harry Solomons league players who won their first game against Atlantis on Saturday. They now take on Kuils River this weekend. Good luck and keep it up guys!

Are you feeling lucky?

Our Toyota Yaris Raffle is going well, although sales have slowed slightly. We appeal to every member to sell just 1 book of 5 tickets and we will far surpass our projected target. If you have taken a book and not yet sold the tickets, please do your utmost to get the tickets sold and the money paid in to the girls in the office. If you have not taken a book, please chat to anyone in the office and we can assist you. Managers on duty over weekends can also help. We know the draw is only in November, but the idea is to pay the car off and start to make money which can then be used for improving the club.

Reminder of "grab and go" in the halfway house

A friendly reminder about “grab and go” on busy member days in halfway house, as our days shorten and light starts to fade early. Please keep your halfway as short as possible so that everyone finishes their game. Repair divots, pitch-marks and bunkers when playing your round and remember those sandbags.

Please take note of these date changes:

Two date changes are as follows:

· Open Mixed Coronation Bowl Trophy is happening on the 20th May.

· Fathers & Sons Trophy was scheduled for this weekend but it has been moved to the 24th June.

2018 Knockouts

The Club Knockout updated list is on the noticeboard in the foyer alongside the handicaps terminal for those of you who would like to have a look and see who your next opponent will be.
