Newsletter 469 – 13 June 2016
Progress at the Range
There has been action on the driving range as we have started with the construction of four additional greens, as part of our future vision for the driving range. We are creating a mini 9 hole mashie course for members and guests to come and experience the game. This mashie course will also serve as a training ground for future golfers. Our junior numbers have grown to a whopping 108 in total. Michell Golf, through their regular junior programmes, has increased our numbers by 38 in just this last year alone. David Matthews’ involvement in the local schools and his extreme passion for kid’s golf has also added great value to the programme.
One of our senior members, Mr Benny Manuel, turned 76 last week Sunday. Benny has been a member of the club for over 33 years now and this particular birthday was extra special for him as he managed to score his age of 76, just four shots over par. For those of you who do not know Benny, he is very competitive and plays a consistent game of golf off his 13 handicap. Benny often has something to say about his game after his round but on this occasion he was all smiles! Well done Benny, a fantastic round of golf and a wonderful achievement!

Barons of Tokai
On Wednesday we had our monthly Barons of Tokai sponsored day. This month’s format was a Betterball Stableford with a bonus and was won by Steven Dunn and Richard Goveia with 54 points. I would like to extend a massive thank you to Barons of Tokai for being such a proud and loyal sponsor of Clovelly Country Club for over 2 years now. The Principal Dealer, Sharlene van Dijk, and New Vehicle Sales Manager, Riyaaz Slarmie, have been extremely supportive of the club. This has been largely influenced by the number of members who have in turn shown their support by using Barons of Tokai as their preferred VW dealership. Please feel free to let the club know if there is anything that Barons of Tokai can do for you. We also welcome any emails to express thanks. Please send them to email me and I will pass them on to Sharlene.
Reciprocity for Steenberg
The golf course experienced a slight growth in green fee revenue for the month of May year to date and our winter specials have been well received by the local golfing community. The club has entered into a reciprocal agreement with Steenberg and we will be offering them certain times until the end of September. Their Chairman is extremely grateful and extends his thanks to the members of Clovelly. Steenberg has informed us that Clovelly members will be extended a much reduced rate to play on their newly sodded green next year. I wish them every bit of success and hope that things go smoothly for them. Their members have had a tough experience and it’s important that we are there for them through this time.
In closing I would like to thank you all for making Clovelly Country Club such a special place. The regular reports that I receive about how welcoming we are as a club make me feel incredibly proud to be given the wonderful opportunity to serve you all.
