St Cathryn’s news

FRIDAY’S Friday’s thunder and hail storm caused severe havoc on the golf course leaving broken branches, leaves strewn all over with wash and debris from neighbouring lands.

However, the accompanying rain was most welcome and a total of between 16mm and 32mm of rain was measured.

The Kranskop Farmers’ association played their annual fun 9-hole golf competition on Saturday in aid of Golf 911 . Twenty four players played, the groups made up of golf members – who were teamed up with aspirant golfers and hackers.

The format American scramble caused lots of laughter, but also good team work. Golfers tee’d off in three balls and three drives per player had to be used.

Careful planning was the order of the day because the tee off was very important.

While the men played golf, the ladies of the district
had a ceramic workshop
and enjoyed spending time together.

There were some ladies who showed their hidden artistic talents.

Thank you to Sue Strydom for holding the workshop and a big thank you to Gertie and
Alwyn Kotze who made and served the delicious supper.

St Cathryn’s would like to thank the players and sponsors for their support of this worthwhile cause.

Thirty six golfers played in the Triangular tournament hosted by St Cathryn’s on Sunday November 12, and the coastal golfers faced with windy conditions which lasted till mid morning.
