THOSE of you who watched the US Open, played at Shinnecock Hills, would agree that the greens were extremely fast with tight pin positions for the first three days and somewhat easier pin positions on Sunday.

The defending champion, Brooks Koepka, was a deserving winner.

This weekend, June 23 and 24, we will be playing our Match-play Championships. The top eight golfers from club championships play, the draw has been posted on the group so if anyone cannot play please let the club know.

The format is match-play (you play to win the hole) with an early morning tee-off at 7.30 am on Saturday, June 23.

Tee-off positions will be from the official permanent markings on the tee box — in line with the upcoming slope rating and handicapping that is coming for all golf clubs in South Africa from September 3, 2018.

Golfers who require accommodation please contact the club as soon as possible. We will have a “bring and braai” on Saturday, June 23 — please bring your own meat.

To book for golf please contact Piet at 083 269 1661.
