This week at Clovelly – 15th December 2014
Newsletter 391 – Lyndsay Harrison – Assistant Manager
Boy oh boy, the Festive Season seems to have crept quietly upon us, it is only 10 days to Christmas…
Ladies Section News
Our Ladies Section recently knitted and collected loads of teddy bears which were then taken to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital for distribution to the children.
Well done Ladies—you must have made many children smile with joy at such a gift.
Most of our Members and many of our visitors will know Ken Porter who has been our Main Gate Security for the past 14 years.
Ken is retiring now after continued poor health.
We all wish him a very happy and hopefully healthy retirement.
Staff team building outing
On Monday and Tuesday last week, we took our clubhouse staff (over 2 days) to Ratanga Junction as a thank you for the hard work they have put in through the year and are about to put in through our very busy coming high season.
At the entrance we were greeted by a gentleman ‘wearing’ a beautiful specimen of a python.
Willie, our Starter, loves snakes and was only too keen to touch, and if given half a chance, he would have had it around his neck.
However, Patience, our effervescent waitress has a huge dislike of snakes and was shaking in her boots at the mere look of the creature.
I managed to coax her closer and to eventually actually touch it…. She can now brag to her family about how brave she was.
Golf Director, Damian with Cleaning Crew Member, Khumbo and Starter, Willie with Range staff Ashley caught on camera on the world famous Cape Cobra Roller-coaster.
The Monkey Falls ride ….looks quite sedate? don’t be fooled, that is one heck of a drop.. Club Manager John and myself decided to take the plunge, so to speak and got completely drenched, much to the amusement of all the staff.
In the foreground are Bar Manager, Lee-Ann and Bookings Clerk, Jessica.
John and Waitress, Patience, having a bonding moment during the lunch break.
All the staff really enjoyed their outing and are now ready to face the hopefully, throngs of golfers about to arrive on our shores.
Bea McIntosh Fundraising Golf Day
This event was held on Friday 12th December with 132 players taking part.
Thanks to all who played, bought & sold raffle tickets and the many other various donations.
In the end we managed to raise over R50 000 for Bea to assist her with her soaring medical expenses.
Christmas trees for sale
Please note that we have freshly cut Christmas Trees for sale at the clubhouse for R100 each.
These are alien and the cutting down of the trees helps rid our course surrounds of the alien vegetation and the proceeds of their sales goes towards our tree fund.

Friday Night Draw
The name pulled last Friday was Roger Faircliff. Unfortunately Roger was not present! The draw now stands at R3 200.
The name drawn for the Evergreen sponsored draw was Lynn Beresford. Lynn was in the Ladies locker room, enjoying a lovely hot shower after playing in the Bea Mc Golf Day, not realising that she had just become the recipient of R5 000!
