Dear Member

From the President’s Desk

The General Committee has appointed Albert Clack in the vacant position of General Manager of Randpark Club.  Albert has been acting in that capacity since the resignation of Francois Swart.  Albert has been with Randpark for the past two and a half years now, and is well known to members.  This is an exciting time for him to take over the lead and we look forward to working with him to take the Club forward to greater heights.


We have received some complaints and negative comments on our dress code both on the course and in the clubhouse being taken to extremes.  While we certainly do not want to be overly prescriptive, we do need to remind our members and visitors that we are aiming to keep the standard of our Club to that in keeping with being an enjoyable family destination.  We know that modern times are more relaxed, but we urge you to make sure that you dress according to the standards that apply to golf clubs worldwide.

Finally, it is now twelve weeks since the damage to the greens on Firethorn, and they have shown a marked improvement.  Ironically the process has been slowed by the excessive rain that we have had recently.  Only one green has been taken out of use for a short period.  We are pleased to see the progress.  Thank you again for your patience.

Dr Gerrit J Sandrock

We always encourage communication between our members and the club. If you have any comments or questions please don’t hesitate to either contact our General Manager, Albert Clack at clubops@randpark.co.za or our Club Captain, Arthur Heinrich at captainslog@randpark.co.za.


We are still in the process of cleaning up after last week’s storm. The brush cutters are edging cart paths and tidying up around trees and dams. The green on Firethorn’s 7th hole has 90% grass cover and will be open for play by the 17th of February.


The newly seeded chipping green has germinated except for a small area that has unfortunately washed away and we will attend to this once we have full germination. The semi-rough on the short holes have been newly cut and we are busy with some fairway lines.

Putting & Chipping Greens

The putting green next to the Hotel is currently under “maintenance”, members wanting to work on their short game can make use of the chipping green by the driving range and the small green by the starting area on Bushwillow. No chipping will be allowed on the big putting green next to the clubhouse.

Please take note of the following rules:
  • The practice green facilities are reserved for members, their guests and any visiting golfer who has paid a green fee for the day. They are not available to casual visitors or those using the public driving range.
  • The standard dress code for the golf course applies to these facilities.
  • No chipping is allowed on the putting green.
  • The number of practice balls used should be appropriate to the number of other golfers using the facilities.

General Course Care

The two biggest concerns raised by members and some of our guests are the bunkers and divots on the courses. We would like to remind our members to please take care of the courses and to leave the courses in a way you would like to play them.

  • Sandbags are available on each starting hole and they are compulsory. Please ensure you keep the bag full at all times and fill up your divots.
  • Please rake the bunkers – there is nothing more frustrating than hitting a bad shot in a bunker only to find out when you arrive at your ball that the bunker is not raked. Golf is already hard so please do not make it more difficult for other players.
  • Repair your pitch marks, and please do not litter on the courses.

SA Stroke Play Championship

We would like to remind our members that we will be hosting the 2022 South African Stroke Play Championship from Sunday, the 20th of February until Thursday, the 24th of February on Firethorn. Please note sunrise and sunset golf will only be available on Bushwillow during this period.

The 2022 Graduate and Junior Club Champs will be played on Sunday, the 13th of March. The 36-hole Championship is the first Major Golfing event for our members. Entries will open next week and all entries will be done online. Please note the entries will be limited and only paid entries will be accepted. More details will follow in Monday’s newsletter.
