St Cathryn’s news

2016-07-06 06:00

LAST Sunday when five of the eight St Cathryn’s golfers playing in the triangular at Mandeni, left home the temperature reading was one degree above zero - a number that was also the difference between the winning team Darnall and St Cathryn’s on Sunday.

The rain that fell during the night on the coast helped to settle a little dust, and the strong wind from the South was chilly.

Luckily the eight golfers in the team did not have the strong wind to contend with that blew the day before. Our coastal members met us and after the draws were done a competitive social round of golf began.


1st: Darnall 33.75 points

2nd: Mandeni 33 points

3rd: St Cathryn’s 32.75 points.

Merwin Rabe was best St Cathryn’s golfer, and ended in third position overall with 39 points and Brent Barkhuizen fifth o.c.o with 38 points. Lawrence Savage and Sbonelo Khumalo ended with 36 and 34 points respectively.
The next round will be played at Darnall on 9 October and we have been invited to make a mini-golf tour, where we play in our hosts meat competition on the Friday, at Prince’s Grant on Saturday and on Sunday we try to bring the trophy back to St Cathryn’s, which Darnall took on Sunday.

We are planning on going on the tour - wives and partners are invited to join us.

Next golf fixture at St Cathryns will be on Saturday 23 July when the Farmers’ Agri-Care Monthly Mug as well as the Sanlam Cancer Challenge will be played.

This Friday, 8 July, the Kranskop Conservancy will be holding its game count evening. All members of the conservancy are invited and must RSVP by Thursday 10am for catering purposes. Phone 083 269 1661 or 082 555 2661 to confirm attendance.
