St Cathryn’s news

2016-05-11 06:00

ON Saturday 30 April, St Cathryn's held its annual classic on a very cold, wet and windy day … no it was windy and wet and this was our 16th classic.

On the day six golfers pulled out of the field when they saw the expected weather conditions for the weekend. Defending champions Steve Bosch and Brent Barkhuizen, seemed to have battled most with these cold conditions.

Three "OBs” drinking stations were made available for the players. Old Brown sherry is a truly South African product and was used to warm up golfers, and at times the golf warmed up. The average temperature recorded on the day was 9°C.

Our fund raiser also attracted sponsors and banners and products were displayed on the course. The John Deere and Toyota stand drew the most attention when they had vehicles on display.

The committee would like to thank the sponsors for their static displays.

Dr Mike Caldicott was awarded a jar of marmelade for his long years of support, service, and words of advice to the greenkeeper and the losing of the odd golf ball at the classic.

After prize giving visitors, golfers and families were treated to a hot meal of beef in red wine and vegetables.

Next Farmers’ Agri-Care monthly mug will be played on 21 May.

This Friday night we will be closed for a private function, but food will be on sale and festivities and fun at Hermannsburg School on Friday and Saturday to keep everyone busy for the weekend.

We will be open for golf and bookings can be made to Piet on 083 269 1661.
