Let me start off by congratulating the staff and committees of our club. We had a bumper month last month and they are doing a fantastic job. Then thanks to all our members for coming to play their golf at our club. You guys and dolls are amazing, and we appreciate everything you do at the club. You all ROCK.

I am sure all of you have realised by now that Godfrey has been appointed as the new Caddy Master and I believe he is doing a sterling job. It would be appreciated if you could all assist him with his new position by making sure you have your slips handy when you walk down the ramp and that you are on the practice green at least ten minutes before your tee time.

We are certainly having enough rain lately and it is messing with our golf, but we should not complain too much because we always need good rains. Thanks to the greens staff for still keeping our course in great condition in the inclement weather. A number of golfers from Randpark played their Masters competition at our club on Saturday and could not stop raving about the facilities that we have here in Kdorp.

The club recently purchased a further six new carts and we are now very close to our desired number of carts at the club.

And on that note, I believe Calvin received a call from the Sunshine Tour and they would like us to host a senior’s comp at our club in August. Awesome. Well done everyone at the club.

However, there is someone who is purposefully trying to do damage to our course by digging up our greens. We have had numerous incidents of someone taking swipes on the greens and causing damage. If anyone can help us in identifying who this culprit is, we will make sure there is a reward for you. The person obviously does not realise how much it costs to keep the course in the condition that it is.

I see that the timesheet is still fairly well booked for Easter weekend so not many of you are going away. Saturday will still be the monthly medal. Please enjoy the weekend off everyone and hope you enjoy your golf.

We will be having the Boere vs Souties on Saturday 23rd April and we have a member that has offered to sponsor a lamb on the spit for lunch. Thanks buddy. I have finalised the teams for the game and will be doing the bookings during this week. Keep an eye on your emails.

Don’t forget Captain’s Draw on the 29th April. Live entertainment has been arranged and I am sure it will be a party of note again.

Happy birthday to the following members who celebrate their birthdays during the month of April, hope you all have an awesome day.
