This week at Clovelly – 25 May 2015
Newsletter 414 – John Spyker – Club Manager
This week has been another action packed week with lots of exciting things happening.
On Tuesday the Ladies were entertained by Michell Golf who kindly hosted a Master Class before the Ladies played their afternoon golf.
Although the weather was gloomy and wet the Ladies did well. The Tuesday afternoon competition was won by Trish McMahon and Birdie Jenkinson on 43 points, closely followed by Gill Briggs and Audrey Haamann on 42 points.
We arrived at the Club early Wednesday morning to a flooded halfway-house and a boiler room in disarray, resulting in no hot water for the rest of the day.
Thankfully, the boiler room was repaired by Thursday morning, just in time for the arrival of the W P Nomads.
Ken Herringer and Chris Roberts won the Wednesday competition with an impressive 49 points and a host of players on 47 points.
Many thanks to Ferdi de Lange (pictured) for the snacks supplied to our members in the evening as he celebrated his 60th birthday on Wednesday.
Thursday belonged to The W. P. Nomads, and it certainly was a very special event for us.
The Nomads as an association are held in high regard. They have for many years been heavily involved with all aspects of golf, especially Amateur Golf, Disabled Golf, Women’s Golf and Golf Development.
Our Club Captain, Dr Yatish Garach, is a Nomad, and this gave us added incentive to make sure the Nomads golf day was a huge success.
Many thanks to the Clovelly Team.
Golf Director, Damian Wrigley, has been away in Johannesburg this past week on a PGA course.
During the past three years Damian has successfully completed and attended CMASA Club Management Diploma and Seminar courses.
He has decided to change tack slightly and complete a three year PGA course, thus gaining as much all round experience as possible in the golf industry.
We wish him all the best with his future exams and we know he will become even more competent and a great asset to Clovelly Country Club.
