Supatronix Golf Day


Although there was a lot happening in town over the past weekend we still had a good field of 32 players for the Supatronix Day and even the weather also played along.
It was a pleasure to play with the sponsor Jose de Brito. Albeit, the other gun slingers in our hand took my money – eish. But all told it was a good format [bogey plus] and winner on the day and surely needs a new handicap was Jaco de Witt on plus 6 with which was three shot clear of Justine Grobler in second place on plus 3. The 3rd, 4th and 5th places were determined by a count out on plus 2 and went to David Peake, Hannes Crafford and Piet Poggenpoel, in that order.
The nearest to the pin went to Wayne Hart, longest putt [a new idea] was won by Jaco de Witt and John Sardinha won the closest to the flag drive. Jose was on hand to hand over the prizes and on the photo is Justine and Jose. Two clubs went to Wayne Hart and Koot Potgieter.
The jackpot was not won on the day. In true style Jose committed to next year and just to prove a point rang the bell and all said aye aye. Thanks to Jose and his team for the sponsorship and we look forward to seeing you back next year.
Added to the golf on Saturday we had our second social and boy was it a cracker. 120 or so singers, dancers and party goers turned up to enjoy Jampie and Jaco [better say Jaco Blaauw just now some-one thinks it was Jaco de Witt, and even if he looks like Kenny Rodgers, hy kennie die woorde nie, haha], and enjoy we all did.
Those who missed the show – well you missed an awesome night, even Tienie who just turned 60 [lekker verjaar Tienie] had his dancing shoes on and danced the night away. What an honour to see Jens Travolta and Duane Swayze swing those hips like never before [could need hip replacement soon but well done guys].
Tot ou oom Jan Lieb het uitgepak. Thanks to our organising committee on a job well done and we all look forward to your next event. Also thanks to Viagem Travel for their sponsorship towards the event. It was very nice to see the club members enjoying the evening and indeed even a few visitors were also at the show and had a blast. Nice to have had Gavin, Wimpie, Neville, Roger, Adri and a few others visit us for the night
Our next planned social will be – A Night At The Races, and is now re-scheduled for Friday 2 August so please mark this date in you diaries. Originally we thought to hold it on 26 July but this is His House Fundraiser date, so we have shifted it out by a week. Those that have been to one of these race evenings know it is a cracker of a night. Watch this space for more details, but keep the date open.
There have been some queries about the subs annual fees and annual green fees and this has seemed to have caused a bit of consternation, and we will re-look and advise all this week. Promise!
