Annual General Meetings

Our Women’s Golf Section, Men’s Golf Section and Main Club AGM’s were held last week and all 3 were done and dusted in record times.

On our Women’s Section Committee, Bridget Woodhouse accepted the position of Vice Captain and Tournaments Secretary, which became vacant when Jo Gardener left us and Sue Philp has joined this Committee as well.

The Men’s Golf Section sees TJ Biggs (you will all know him from our Pro Shop staff) join their Golf Committee. For a full list of all our Committee Members, please visit our website

We would like to thank all the members for their amazing support throughout the year to make Clovelly the success it is.

Clovelly goes Jazz Dinner


Wow – what a spectacular function. Firstly – to Pat & Gerald van Heerden – without you guys, these events would be damp squibs… the amount of work and dedication to exacting standards that you two put into these events is mind boggling.


The event was held to recognise 13 Clovelly Members who have been members for 50 years or more….. that in itself is a wonderful achievement.

Tony Ashberg spoke on behalf of the recipients and had everyone present giggling at his recollection of his early years at the club.

Everyone who was lucky enough to attend was entertained by The Delft Big Band which was launched in 2008 as a project intended to take youngsters off the gangster infested streets of Delft, helping them improve their musical skills, so as to help put food on their families tables. The project was initially funded by the Department of Social Development, and Ian Smith was appointed as project director. Since then, the Delft Big Band has developed into one of the most exciting big bands in South Africa.


Many members of the band are now financially self-sufficient, earning an income as professional musicians, and music teachers. Some members of the band are now studying at university, with their fees being funded from band earnings. A feeder band is currently being launched, so as to upskill the next generation of aspirant professional musicians from the Cape Flats.

Watch this space as we fully intend to work with this group of talented people in the future.

Carl’s Catering fed everyone a scrumptious 3 course meal served by their every friendly staff and the bar staff, who were equally friendly, were also kept on their feet keeping everyone ‘watered’.
