THE annual Arcadia Golf Days were held at Greytown on March 17, and at St Cathryn’s on March 18.

The two green keepers and their staff had to contend with some extreme weather conditions over the two days.

There was driving rain, soft rain, some sunshine and some wind.

Luckily, they were well-supported by the half-time staff when golfers went in for their break, and the excellent half-time meals helped the golfers play better (not to mention the shot of OB sherry).

The betterball medal stableford format was enjoyed by the golfers.

The eventual leaders in the betterball medal stableford play held on to their lead, but their co-leaders after day one, fell off the bus, or out the cart, to finish in third position.

The pressure that goes with this format is that you score points, two points for a par, one point for one over par and no points for a double bogey ( two shots over par).

However, three points were up for grabs on a birdie.


1 — Dieter Meyer and John Lloyd Rawstorne, 91 points.

2 — Machiel Uys and Jacques Breytenbach, 89 points.

3 — Brent Barkhuizen and Piet Nel, 87.

4 — Flip and Ronel Botha, 85 o.c.o.

5 — Owen Naidoo and Steven vd Merwe.

6 — Fred Bartels and Keith Davey, 84 points.

Special thanks to the sponsors on the day: aQuelle, Bracken, Chubby Chickens, Dulcie Jacobz, Engen, Jack Mason, Mascor, Just Cheese, Link Seed, NCT, Pannar, Pidelta, Plennegy, Rhino Charcoal, RTS, Sando Transport and Umvoti Repairs, Greytown Golf Club and St Cathryn’s.

A hearty thank you to the team at Greytown, as well as to the team at St Cathryn’s, and thank you to all the players who braved the rain on both days.

The next fixture is the annual Tuta Carriers Club Championship to be played on Saturday and Sunday, April 14 and 15.
