I hope you all enjoyed your Workers Day last week. Most of our golfers suffered in the extremely hot conditions.
This time of the year our fields get a bit smaller, if you are in town please see if you can make the effort to play or pop in for a drink or Friday evening meal.
We had a successful Sanlam Cancer Challenge Day, although we had to have prize giving in the dark due to a power outage. There was a huge problem at one of the substations.

Well done to all of you, the regional finals will be at Uitenhage on Sunday 18th August 2013.
Our men’s league team is doing extremely well, they are back on top of the log, all the best for the remaining games.
The drainage project from the 16th dam across the road, 15th and 11th fairways is reaching completion.
Important events: FRIDAY 10TH MAY – VICTORY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL GOLF DAY
SUNDAY 12TH MAY – MOTHERS DAY LUNCH – SEE ATTACHED MENU
FRIDAY 31ST MAY – ST FRANCIS COLLEGE GOLF DAY
Please take not that our monthly medal competition in June will be on the 22nd and not the 29th.
The course is still in great condition but the size of the fields is getting smaller with the Swallows moving north.
With the ditch being dug across the 15th and 11th fairways we were restricted to playing the first nine twice on 22nd April. To add a change we played the second nine from the ladies tees and only four players didn’t improve their stableford scores on the second nine namely -Mike Richardson. Ralph Hilligan, Richard Foulds and Gavin Wade and were all fined R10.00. Winners on the day on 90points were Mike Richardson(again) ,Rob Andrews ,Derek De Villers and Rob Hemsley.
Winners on 06/05/13 were Daan van Rensberg ,Norman Dyer ,Mike Stark, Derek Knight(swinger) on 93 points.
Please remember the last day for ordering shirts at the low price of R220.00 each is 16th May so if you haven’t ordered do so now.
On the 3rd June Humewood Golf Club will be visiting us and we need a good turnout as we won the last time we played at home so please put your names down when the list is up in the next two weeks
The ladies played their first league match at Humewood on Monday 15 April. The weather and course conditions were ideal. Our overall result, was not great, (5 points) but the challenge remains.
The second league match was played at Uitenhage on Monday 6 May, once more, in good conditions and our score improved dramatically (16 points). I don’t know where we are in the pecking order with 21 points, as St Francis headed home before the teams behind us were came in, but well done to those that played and enjoyed their day. I will keep you posted once the scoring so far is sent through to me.
EASTERN PROVINCE SENIOR LADIES FIXTURE.
Sadly this had to be cancelled due to rain and gale force winds, but we are hoping that it will be re-scheduled for July.
