A GROUP of Suid-Natal Primêre pupils braved the rainy weather to take part in golf assessments and clinic at Port Shepstone Country Club on Friday.
Organised and conducted by Petrus Ferreira, the aim of the assessments is to get the schools’ golf league teams ready for 2017.

Ferreira is the father of the young up-and-coming golfer, Simoné Ferreira, who has lifted a number of trophies in junior competitions nationally.

Simoné who also goes to Suid-Natal Primêre, brought home some silverware from the Junior Africa Challenge held in San Lameer Country Club last month, competing against 136 young golfers from around the world.

Ferreira said after the headmaster presented Simoné the trophy at assembly in front of pupils, as is customary, 102 pupils showed interest in signing up for golf lessons.
“A third of these pupils brought back letters from parents confirming their commitment to bring their children for assessment,” said Ferreira.

He said during his first round of assessments two weeks ago, 30 pupils pitched up.
“Last week it was raining at first, but with 15 minutes of taking on a bit of theory and rules, the weather turned out to the advantage of those who were there.”

Ferreira said he is committed to be available on Fridays from 2.30pm to 5pm.
“Whether it rains or not, I will be there. On rainy days we will go for the golf “Bible”, the Royal and Ancient rule book, and teach pupils the rules,” he said.

All schools from all areas are invited to take part in this initiative and Ferreira will assist where he can.

Teachers and parents of the entire Ugu region are welcome to contact Ferreira on 081 307 1250.
