LAST weekend members and visitors took part in the farmers’ agri-care monthly mug and the expected August berg wind conditions stayed away. Now the question must be asked - are the winds still coming or have we had our share during the past months?Golfers were greeted by some “face-lifting” projects on the course, notably on holes three and 12 where the island in front of the tee box was trimmed and made smaller. On either side, due to the low water level, the dam was dug out and the banks trimmed. The one willow tree was leaning badly to the side and its branches have been trimmed. The tree will be replanted behind the 12th green, where the bird hide used to be.With the sixth green now being played for a few months, the committee is working on re-stroking all the golfing holes. Statistics have showed that there will be a complete turn-around in the strokes of some of the difficult holes.On the golf side, there was more pressure on the captain’s putter result than in the winning of the mug, when Merwin Rabe out-drove, out-chipped and out-putted fellow golfers when he romped home with a nett medal score of 62 and stableford points of 46. If you win the mug unfortunately, you cannot win the individual stableford – so the next best golfer wins – Deon van Dyk won with 41 points.Results:1st: Merwin Rabe, nett 622nd: Deon van Dyk, nett 683rd: Paul Els, nett 69Captain’s putter, Thokozani Chonco Nearest to pin 9/18, Thokozani ChoncoThis weekend we look forward to hosting the “Khumalo Cup” on Sunday and have limited the field to 52 players.
