Dear Member,

We sure had a very busy weekend on the golf courses. Saturday, we had just over 400 players in the fields, and Sunday was also fully booked. We had five league games over the weekend and it is always great to host other Club’s League players here on our beautiful courses.

We are moving closer to winter and this will have a big impact on our tee off times. We will be starting our winter tee off times from the 1st of May until the end of August. The tee off times will be as follows:
AM Fields: 06h46 – 08h30
PM Fields: 11h22 – 12h50

Please note that no sunrise golf will be allowed during the winter months, but sunset golf will continue as per normal.

Course Care

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been receiving a lot of feedback from our members with regards to course care. The two biggest concerns are pitch marks and bunkers not being raked. It is still up to us to ensure we look after the courses. Rakes are available and there is sanitiser at every tee box. Fixing your pitch mark and two others on the greens will not only assist with the recovery time of the pitch mark, but will leave a smoother putting surface to play on. We would like to remind all our members of the following course care tips that are attached to the scorecards:

Full up your divots – sandbags are compulsory
Repair your pitch mark and two other pitch marks as well
Do not litter
Dispose of your cigarette buds either in the disposable cans provided or in the dustbins on the course – do not leave them on the courses
Rake the bunkers by either using the sanitised rakes or by using your own Eazi-Rake

League Results

We hosted five league games over the weekend and thank you to all league players for your time and efforts so far this year. It is always great to see visiting teams enjoying our courses and the Randpark “Gees” on the 19th hole.
Well done to all our teams and the results were as follows:
Firethorn vs Glenvista (HOME): Won 4.5 – 3.5
Bushwillow vs Modderfontein (AWAY): Won 5.5 – 2.5
Betterball League
Firethorn vs Glenvista B: Won 5 – 3
Bushwillow vs Killarney: Won 6.5 – 1.5
Creek 9 vs CMR: Lost 3.5 – 4.5

Junior League

Due to a lightning delay, the game was called after 9 holes, but the result will stand.

Our Bushwillow side had a bye and our Firethorn side hosted Dainfern. The Firethorn side managed to win 2.5 – 1.5.  Well done! The Junior Section is really growing and it is great to see how the youngsters are developing into elite golfers.

Scratch League 2021

The scratch league is scheduled to start on Sunday the 30th of May. The entry list will be available from next week on the notice board down stairs.
