We also have implemented a rotational maintenance and repair of the chairs.

Local Rule Re Greens. Please consult the Notice board for the Local Rule around greens effected with on-going treatment. We apologise for circumstances beyond our control but with all the dry weather and then cloudbursts we have been subjected to abnormal Fungi – Anthracnose, Fairing and Dollar spot and all simultaneously!

Handicaps. Handicaps. Handicaps will, as from 1 April 2016 be calculated after every game in future. Please note, players will NOT be eligible for prizes should the Handicap computer reflect any “Open Rounds”.

Tee Off times. We appeal to all members to please notify the Pro Shop of any cancellations in their 4 ball timeously so we can fill up the field. We often turn bookings away and are then left with open places in the field.

The club would like to thank Col. Lizette Potgietter outgoing chairlady for her creative initiative in building and donating the mosaic to be seen next to the Pro Shop.

We rely on our members for suggestions on how to continuously improve the Club please.
