The Sunflower Fund Golf Day


One of the most popular golf days on Clovelly’s calendar has to be “The Sunflower Fund Golf Day”.

Many thanks must go to Adi Phillips and her team for their tireless work in making this annual event such a great success.


The fresh autumn weather held out and the sun smiled down on our glorious valley as the golfers prepared for the challenge ahead.

The Golf was of the highest quality with a winning Alliance score of 110 points.

The prize giving was a great success, The Sunflower Fund’s mission is to help raise funds and create awareness of what they are trying to achieve.

The guest speakers were Corne Krige and an amazing survival story from Brett Archibald, and finally a quick auction by renowned auctioneer Philip Powell, the highlight of the auction was a Springbok Blazer donated by Percy Montgomery who was also present at prize giving.

All the Phillips: Adi Phillips with her Sister-in-Law Judy Phillips and Philip Powell.

Remember… without financial help, bone marrow transplantation would no longer be a treatment option in South Africa.

So well done to all who played in the golf day and made it such a success.

Surfing the Turf


Our Chairman and Treasurer were given the opportunity to Surf the Turf. The GSC is a new concept and certainly a lot of fun, it adds a new dimension to the game of golf, where the mode of transport becomes part of the joy of the game as you glide to the ball.

The GSC is great for people who are pressed for time, it’s obviously aimed at the younger market and would help speed up the game of golf.


Monthly Mixed


The very popular Monthly Mixed was played on Sunday 4th May with our Ladies section kindly sponsoring the prizes.

The highlight of the day was the RAGA team coming in 1st with a very competitive score of 88 points.

The smiles on their faces was priceless, it’s a pleasure having these youngsters playing in the club competitions and also staying for prize giving. Well done to them all.
