St Cathryn’s news

2017-03-22 06:03

IT was a weekend of contrasts, with very hot weather on Saturday 18 March and much cooler and drizzly weather on Sunday 19 March, this however made for some good golf.

It was the 18th annual Tuta Carriers Club Championships and a fun filled, social weekend was enjoyed by the St Cathryn’s members.

The weather conditions could not dampen the golfing ability of our new member, Bruce Paterson, who took the Tuta Carriers St Cathryn’s Club Championship from the 2016 champion Deon van Dyk.

The absence of Liekie Steyn in the ladies section put somewhat of a damper on the tournament as Liekie is still in hospital receiving treatment. Her chirping and competitive spirit was missed by all the golfers, as well as her delicious cakes.

Saturday night at the halfway stage of the championship, Brent Barkhuizen was breathing down Bruce’s neck, as Bruce was only leading by four shots. Club captain Brent drove well on the 10th when he took the longest drive title with a massive drive of 295 metres and nobody could improve on that for the rest of the weekend.
