THE CLUB

Dear Member,

We have heard a lot of success stories in the industry of late and it is reassuring that membership, in most clubs, are increasing, not to mention rounds of golf. We are very privileged to have seen a positive growth this past year from beginners to professionals, young members to older members, members who have returned to Randpark, after leaving the club, but most of all, retaining all our loyal members. We value each and every member, and your contribution to the “gees” that sets us apart from other clubs, the comradery that makes us look forward to another day on the course, and most of all, driving the growth of this wonderful game called golf.

As a club, we would like to thank you for your continued support and loyalty.

We have sent out all pro-forma invoices to members and would like to remind you that subscriptions are due from the 1st April 2021. If you have not yet been in touch with Nadja or Felicia, then please contact them to ensure that your renewal process is a smooth one.

There are a few key changes being implemented on the 1st April, which was communicated in the member update on the 19th February.  

Randpark has always been very generous with member’s discount on F&B, due to the fact that we attracted many events, functions and conferences to the Club. This has become more difficult this past year and it is important that we revise the current discount structure, for the foreseeable future. This is by no means taken lightly and will be done, together with the new menu selection, which includes drinks, to ensure that the offering remains great value for money. The new membership discount structure will be 10% for food & beverage, opposed to the 15% offered before.
 
 
A recent beverage survey conducted by CMASA (Club Managers Association of Southern Africa), showed the pricing of key line items of alcohol and soft drinks within clubs. We added Randpark’s visitor and member’s prices, using the new 10% discount structure as a comparison and found that we are still adding great value to members, when we compare the pricing of peer clubs with our new pricing.  
 
 
Complimentary balls at the range are a great value add for Premium members and Graduate members, and we will continue to offer complimentary warm-up balls before you tee off. However, we will be charging a flat fee of R30.00 per bucket, for 100 balls. This is still a 70% discount on normal member bucket prices for the two respective categories and helps cover the increased cost of operating the range.

The overall value at the range is unquestionable, especially with Inrange, and we look forward to seeing this experience grow in years to come.
 
 
Unlimited Range Buckets are also now available

From the 1st April all golfing members will have the option to add unlimited buckets to their monthly debit orders:
Premium, Executive, Professional & Weekday Categories – R400 / month
Graduate, Junior & Little Pro – R200 / month (7am to 2pm)

Please contact Nadja at membership@randpark.co.za or Felicia at marketing@randpark.co.za for assistance.

Kyle Henenne and Morne Steyn are students of the Randpark Elite Golf Academy. They won the Saturday Betterball Competition on 48 points with rounds of 77 and 88. They represent Randpark Junior League and these two young men definitely have a great future ahead of them.

 
The second round of the Betterball and Individual Knock-outs are just around the corner. Our ladies at reception have made all the bookings for the players on the scheduled dates as per the draw. If you have made alternative arrangements with your opponents, please get in touch with the booking ladies to ensure we do not have any duplications on the system. Players are reminded that the fixture may not be moved to a later date, but can be played before the set date. Only in the following event may a date be extended:

Extensions will be granted to players who are selected to represent the Club at Club level, i.e. League, Provincial or National level. Furthermore, should the league fall on a Sunday, the player will be granted an extension even if the knockout fixture is scheduled for the Saturday, and he / she so wishes to withdraw from golf on the Saturday because he / she is representing the Club, Province or Country on the Sunday.

Creek 9

What a little gem of a course, we have seen a big increase in rounds over the last couple of months at Creek 9. Our 9-hole mashie course is ideal for beginner golfers, family outings and a starting point for our junior golfers. What makes Creek 9 so special is that there is no pressure of playing in a competition, it’s a great facility to practice your iron play and getting familiar on the Rules of Golf and Golf Etiquette. In general, the course etiquette is very relaxed and there is no need for bookings – Pitch and Play. We do, however, request that you take care of the course at all times, please repair your pitch marks, rake the bunkers, try and maintain a good pace of play, do not litter and do not dispose your cigarette butts on the course. Please note that a maximum of four players will be allowed per group and no 5 or 6 balls will be allowed.
 
 
Small groups can be accommodated by arrangement. The venue is ideal for team building events or just to get together with a few friends to play a quick 9-holes. For any information about group bookings, please contact events@randpark.co.za.
