Seniors’ Society News

Seniors’ Society

At Friday's well-attended prize giving, our Senior Society members welcomed another 4 members to our ranks.
Peter Van den Biggelaar, Peter Phillips, Greg Barton and Donald Wotherspoon received their traditional welcome packages.

We hope that they develop many new friendships along the way, with many more years of enjoyable golf at “The Jewel of the North”.

May their Tee shots be straight (if not long), their approach shots find the centre of the green and their putts find the bottom of the cup.

Our Senior Society morning golf (Mon, Wed & Frid) is open to any golfer of 50 years and older. Just turn up before 07h15 to be entered into the draw.

We promise you an enjoyable experience.

Your’s in Golf,

Allan Taylor

Seniors’ Society

The 2020 Winelands Seniors League is under way, with the first round of matches having been played at Somerset West. Durbanville's Seniors continued their winning ways where they left off last year, with a solid 3.5/1.5 win over Helderberg Village. The only match Suat Palanduz and TJ Lee failed to win last year was at this venue and once again they had a tough encounter, coming from behind to secure a half. Gordon Simmons and Mike Rolfe struggled to gel and went down to a 3&1 loss, leaving the remaining three pairs plenty to do. Deon Minnaar and Neil Rix secure a hard earned 1 up win, thanks particularly to an excellent back nine from Neil. Bert Vos and Bob Rees took an early three up lead only to be clawed back to level by the turn. At one down with three to play, a win looked unlikely, but they both played the final three holes impeccably to win 2 up. All that was needed to win the match overall was a half from the final pair of Pieter van Wyk and Jan Horn. Just one up at the turn, they stormed clear winning the first four holes on the back nine to coast home 5&4.

With Somerset West using home advantage to hammer last year's champions Bellville, and Parow also beating Devonvale, the 2020 season already looks set for an interesting 11 months ahead.

Yours in golf,

Bob Rees

League News

Twenty Twenty has brought the introduction of the new Playing Conditions Calculation which took effect from the 1st January. A review of the daily calculation over the last couple of weeks has shown that there has been little change. The PCC has continued to reflect as '0' at DGC which effectively means that the conditions have not had overall impact on the differentials recorded on the day. For those of you who are interested, this has been queried with GolfRSA who have confirmed that the secret formula is working as expected and that here are typically only 7 or 8 course countrywide who may have a PCC other than '0' on a specific day.

The Club Champs will be taking place on the 1st, 2nd, 8th, and 9th of February and all members are encouraged to participate. Not only is this the single most important member’s competition at the club, it is usually a lot of fun! Previous years have seen a fantastic vibe around the clubhouse with people comparing scores and telling each other stories about 'that magical shot' or the round got away. DGC is looking to introduce a couple of innovative additions to this year event which should make it bigger and better than before. The club is also looking into replacing the boards that reflect the previous winners, so it the perfect time to try and get your name on the shiny new additions that will be up in the clubhouse shortly.

The Masters and Mid-Amateur teams will be starting the league season on the 25th January and then continue on through February and March. Both teams have members available to represent the club, but anyone who would still like to join the teams are encouraged to do so. The more members participating in league the better. Also, please look out for the Club Match Play sheets, they will be put up on the member’s boards in due course. This competition is to be revived in 2020 and should be kicking off in late Feb or early March.

Other than that, have a fantastic year ahead and enjoy your golf!!

Yours in golf,

Mathew Herbert

Unlock extra distance

Increasing your ball speed by just 1mph adds two metres to your driver shot.
Two metres could be the difference between landing on the other side of a water hazard, or in it. It could be the difference between the light rough and the heavy rough, or the lip of a fairway bunker and the short, firm grass right next to it.
How many metres can we add in a single fitting?
There are many aspects of your driver setup we can consider adjusting to increase your distance.
We’ll want to make sure you’ve got the right shaft length and weight. Also we’ll look at things like your angle of attack and dynamic loft.
Come for a fitting >
No metre untapped
There are thousands of fitting configurations. Let’s find your ONE, so you can get every metre you’re capable of.
