WP Amateur Championships

Jovan-Rebula-winner-of-WP-Amateur-Champs-23-April-2016

As you are probably aware, the whole of last week we hosted the Western Province Amateur Championships.

142 players took part and the eventual winner was Jovan Rebula, pictured above with his proud Mum.

At registration, all the players signed the outer section of the photograph which formed part of the prize a lovely souvenir for the winner to keep.

Stormy weather

Range-Fence-damaged-2-25-April-2016

We experienced our first seasonal storm on Friday 22nd April – and what a storm it was with hurricane force winds and driving rain.

Although we were proactive and temporarily removed the Bedouin tent from the deck of the clubhouse, we were unable to protect the fence at the Range or one of the trees which succumbed to the wind.

Hollow Tyning

From our Course Manager – Steven Webber…

Hollow-Tyning-2-25-April-2016

This course maintenance practice is done twice a year, in Spring and in Autumn, which allows us to relieve compaction and at the same time introduce clean uncontaminated sand into the soil profile which is essential aeration, percolation and drainage of the profile.
