Tienie Muller, golf captain from Greytown also said a few words, and was pleased to note the good relationship that exists between our two clubs.

The chairman also thanked all the members for their support and a special thank you to Dieter Meyer for his work on the Arcadia golf days as well as being the inter-club convener.

Brent Barkhuizen was unanimously re-elected golf captain. The winner of the Grand Prix (points earned at monthly mugs) was Fanie van Wyk.

Piet also said farewell to Rikus and Liekie who will be relocating to Pretoria in the new year and thanked them for their support to the golf club as well as to the efficient running of the estate.

Piet thanked every member for their support and wished everybody a wonderful Christmas.

The AGM ended with the members and invited guests enjoying dinner together.
