This week at Clovelly – 2nd March 2015

Newsletter 402 – Lyndsay Harrison – Assistant Manager



First and foremost, as the deep south of our Peninsula burns, our heartfelt sympathies go to all affected by the terrible fires we are currently experiencing.

All we can do, as a Club, is to be a collection point for the local community to drop off food and drink with us and we will take it to the fire-fighters as we have the vehicle to traverse the terrain between the course and Ou Kaapse Weg as well as one of the volunteer ladies coming to collect from us.

We are also more than happy to provide water from our dams for the helicopters to use to try and douse the flames.

We also thank all the golfers who have so willingly donated money towards supplying food and water to these wonderful men and women.

So – it’s ‘all go’ here right now as we also have a film shoot being shot on the golf course!


On a lighter note – I am glad to report that February was as good a month as we expected it to be with 200 more people on our course than last February…

Our beautiful course is attracting even more people who all seem to thoroughly enjoy their golf even in the wind that we have been experiencing.

March is an interesting month for us, starting off with the Raymond Ackerman Invitational in support of RAGA (Raymond Ackerman Golf Academy) on Thursday 5th March followed the next day with the Pick n Pay ‘IS Charity’ Golf Day which sees many of the up-country folk who have come down for the Pick n Pay/Cape Argus Cycle Tour which is on Sunday 8th March rendering many of us more or less prisoners in our little town.

However, the Clovelly golfers have their ‘Locked-in Classic’ with us on that day as they are the only ones who can actually get here!

Then towards the end of the month we have our Men’s and Ladies Club Championships which are always looked forward to – who will win this year? Watch this space!

New Annual Competition

On the afternoon of Friday 27th February 2015 we held the first of what is to become a regular February competition sponsored by Fine & Country.

It was Men versus Ladies and (woohoo) the Ladies came out on top beating the men 386 points to 374 (Go Ladies!)

Men’s Leagues Update

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant…our two top league teams (Mid-Amateur & Second League) were on form on Saturday.

Congratulations to the Mid-Amateur side who won 5/3 against a very competitive Metropolitan side. Although we have one game to go in the group section, the team has already reached the final.

Our Second League side needed to beat Westlake to lead the League which they duly did by winning 4 1/2 – 3 1/2.

With one more game to play, this side, ably led by Damian Wrigley, needs to either draw or win to win this league.

We wish the team well for the coming Saturday for this really important match.

Our third league side drew 4 all, so well done all round.

Farewell from our Florist


Bev & Dave Bruce (Fragrance of Flowers) would like to thank Lady Captain, Lilian Brand, and the Clovelly Ladies Section for the wonderful gift given in thanks for sponsorship of the Monthly Mixed held on Sunday 1st March in the afternoon.

Bev & Dave would also like to thank Clovelly for the +-9 years of support.

From our side, we wish them a happy retirement with loads of great golf and thanks for the wonderful flowers for those years, you shall be missed!

Integrated Fitness

Habit and discipline breed success. If you are a successful businessman, good habits and discipline got you there.

So does the human body need the same elements to continue to be efficient even as life matures. The skeleton joint functioning, the muscles, human movement and the vital organs – they all need attention to stay in tiptop shape and keep on playing for longer, keeping people going, efficiently for longer.

Love yourself love your activity.
