Howsit everyone, I would like to start this month’s newsletter by congratulating our club management and greenkeeping staff for preparing an absolutely stunning course week in and week out. As you probably know I tend to spend quite a lot of my time at the club chatting to members and visitors who are playing on the day and I simply cannot tell you how many players approach me to tell me how great our course is. I also do a bit of course rating on the side and can honestly tell you that we do not have to step aside when comparing our course with any other course and I mean any other course. Congrats guys and thanks a stack. Please keep it up.

On that note let me show you what we do with your capex levy contribution every time you play. This is a new machine that we purchased recently and makes the seeding of the fairways so much easier

Our Club Director, Calvin Caldeira recently played in a PGA tournament at Nelspruit Golf Club which was over three rounds and managed to win the tournament by a massive seven points. Well done, Calvin, certainly playing great golf.

And, as is the pattern nowadays at our club, two of our members achieved the perfect fluke and had holes-in-one. Congratulations Fred Viljoen (11th) and Johnny Chapman (14th) on this fantastic achievement.

You would have noticed that a number of carts are now being used by Probe Security to advertise their product. If you are interested in advertising your company on our carts or on the course you can discuss it with Jason or Calvin and they can direct you to the correct person dealing with this aspect of our club.

That is about it for this month, if you are travelling over this period please travel safe and we will see you back on our fairways pretty soon. If you are going to Rumania over the festive season I will definitely see you around. Have an amazing festive period and be safe.

To all our members who are celebrating their birthdays during December, I certainly hope you have an amazing day.
