Newsletter 423 – 27 July 2015
One of our peacocks in ‘full bloom’ showing off to all the his girlfriends (and Pat Quill with her camera)…
Our Super League got off to an icy cold start at Devonvale Golf Club this past Saturday, when the team arrived at 6h45 for their team talk and pre-round preparations.
Our team’s first game was against Devonvale, so home course advantage was certainly in the opponent’s favour. The team consisted of eight players of the highest calibre.
After the morning foursomes the two teams were even on 2 games all. It was all to play for in the afternoon singles.
Results after the first 9 holes were tight, with Clovelly up in 3 games, square in 2 and down in 3.
The back 9 presented some tough holes, with the wind picking up throughout the day, adding to the challenge. In the end it was down to the Captain, Antonio Bruni, to win his last hole of the day for our team to beat Devonvale.
Unfortunately, this was not to be, with only a half managed, resulting in the team losing the day by one point.
Next week the team will face Stellenbosch at Stellenbosch Golf Club.
Our Ladies League had a successful week, despite the weather conditions.
Three League teams braved the gale-force wind. Silver, playing at Bellville, won all three matches, Bronze 1, playing at Clovelly, also won all three matches and Bronze 4, playing at Mowbray, drew.
We would like to congratulate the ladies and wish them all the best for their future games.
It is great to know that they are representing Clovelly so well!
We had a busy day on Thursday. The Steenberg Ladies chose to hold their competition in Clovelly’s morning field.
They enjoyed their game, and mentioned how warmly welcomed they felt. It is always encouraging to hear positive feedback. We also had a full field of Western Province Seniors in the afternoon.
As enthusiastic as they were many of the players abandoned play, as the weather was decidedly wet and windy!
This past Sunday was the ever popular Clovelly Foursomes, with some of the Cape’s top amateurs battling it out for the trophy.
A big thank you to our sponsors, Barons of Tokai, for their generous support of this event.
Results of this event will follow in next week’s publication, with pictures of the winners.
Pictured are some of our staff who were on duty on the day.
