St Cathryn’s news

2018-07-18 06:01

THE Farmers Agri-care Monthly Mug, played over the weekend, had an interesting twist to the final results.

Not only did we have a small field, but our supported Greytown golfers walked off with the majority of the prizes.

All the phone apps showed rain was due to arrive at about two o'clock, the mist app showed low clouds but, when the final thick mist fell over the course, visibility was down to 20 metres. At this point it was decided to end the game, after only 10 holes were completed. The scores therefore were calculated after the completion of only nine holes.

On the golf course we measured six millimetres of rain and Monday morning severe frost took to the fairways.


First — Henrico Corbett nett 28

Grenville Menton came to play his 100th golf course on Sunday.

Scottish cold and windy conditions met the golfers when they arrived on Sunday — beanies, neck scarves and gloves on both hands were the traditional clothing attire for the morning tee off.

Only three of the golfers had played at St Cathryn's before so, for the balance of the golfers, it was a new and windy experience.

The winners of the day were Ian Firth and Clive Chambler on 38 points o.c.o Barry Washington and John Ashton.

Nearest to pin 9/18th — Centurion golf course player Grenville Manton.

On behalf of all St Cathryn's members, congratulations must go to Brendon Stone on winning the Scottish open with a score of 20 under par, almost carding 60 shots on day four, and to Kevin Anderson, another truly South African product, well done for reaching the Wimbledon final.

To book for golf please phone 083 269 1661.

The Winter special continues, R 150 for 18 holes, cart included — as long as carts are available and not on competition days.
