Dale Hayes heading for the Victoria Country Club

2010-08-07 00:00

VICTORIA Country Club will be hosting renowned SA golf personality Dale Hayes on August 19.

Hayes, who is a regular commentator on most of SuperSport’s golf programmes, will bring his Hayes Classics 2010 tournament to Maritzburg’s championship layout, and will also have the Supergolf cameras in tow.

Victoria club professional Stuart Woodroffe explained to Weekend Witness last week that such is Hayes’s popularity, that they inquired about a possible date over a year ago.

“We are very chuffed to have him here, and it will obviously be a memorable occasion for all involved,” Woodroffe said.

Besides the usual festivities associated with golf days, Hayes seals his events with a Fun Golf Clinic, which is a treat for pros and hackers alike.

From teeing off with a hammer, to using a hose-pipe shaft, Hayes’s relentless humour is certainly a unique but entertaining way to round off the day.

The format for the competition will be a betterball stableford, with a shotgun start from midday.

The entry fee is R450 per player, and this includes a gift bag on arrival, green fees, the fun golf clinic and dinner. There will also be a host of prizes for those who do the business on the course.

For those interested in playing, entry forms can be collected at the Victoria pro shop. Alternatively, one can call the Victoria shop at 033 347 1394 and a form can be faxed to you.
