This week at Clovelly – 28th July 2014
Newsletter 371 – Lyndsay Harrison – Assistant Manager
From the desk of Damian Wrigley.
On Saturday afternoon it was looking doubtful that the competition would go ahead due to the heavy rains experienced. However the Tournament Committee made the decision to play the event.
Behind the success of any tournament are the people and sponsors who make it happen. A huge thank you must go out to Barons of Tokai for their generous sponsorship.
Then to the staff and volunteers for their passion and dedication. Lyndsay Harrison for doing the registration so early in the morning, Chris and Carol Goldsbury for handling the rules, Emelia Coetzer for capturing the scores, Carl’s Catering for providing the meals, Dave Matthews for ensuring the player’s experience and of course to Dave and Lelani Odendaal for assisting the players with their on course requirements.
The scores being posted were around par as the wet conditions proved to be challenging. It was Jon Bernard and James Wight of Clovelly who were leaders in the clubhouse after round one. In the end though it was two ‘one foot putts’ missed by the duo that saw victory slip away from them. In the end it was Chad Cruickshank and Cole Cruickshank (pictured above right) who were the Champions on the day beating Jon Bernard and James Wight by one shot. The winning score was a 2 over par 146.
Ladies Section – Marnie Wolmarans
Bunny Competitions: The proposed monthly competitions have yet to get off the ground due to the inclement weather.
We would like to thank the following people for volunteering to play nine holes with the new ladies: Lynne Berrisford, Caroline Ayers, Lilian Brand, Jo Gardener & Marnie Wolmarans.
I am sure we will get an opportunity to get on the course with them when the rain stops on a Friday!
Annual General Meetings
Our 3 AGM’s are fast approaching with the first being the Ladies Golf Section meeting being held on Tuesday 12th August at 18h30.

Booking Office Changes
International Bookings Clerk, Emelia Coetzer leaves us at the end of July and we all wish her the very best in her new employment.
Emelia is pictured right with our Club President, Mr Raymond Ackerman.
Current Bookings Clerk Nekisha Delcarme will take over as the International Booking Clerk.
We have stolen Jessica Yiend (pictured left) from Carl to fill the gap.
Jess was in the Halfway House so most of our readers will know her well and recognise her in the booking office where she is learning new skills.
Musical Quiz Evening
There is to be a musical quiz evening on Friday 8th August at 7pm directly after the Friday Night Draw.
Teams of 8 are ideal but if you have less we can perhaps help by making up teams. R20 per person.
For more information please contact Pat van Heerden on 083 261 7475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

We encourage members to use the Pro Wash car washing facility in the lower carpark area and support this business venture.
