St Cathryn’s news

2018-09-26 06:02

THE Farmers Agri-care Monthly Mug was played on the weekend of September 15 but, due to community protests in the area, the sports editor was not able to get to the computer to do the re- port.

It was the first competition under the new slope rating system, which drew a few comments from the golfers, with strokes given to some of the golfers and others having strokes taken away, but overall everyone seemed to have enjoyed themselves.

The St Cathryn’s golfers missed Marius, (a member of the Greytown Country Club), in the field. Due to the major operation he had, Maruis was not able to play.

“Marius word gou gesond! Die Grand Prix wag nie vir jou nie.”


First — Fanie van Wyk nett 74

Second — Flip Botha nett 77 o.c.o

Third — Fritz Volker

Fourth — Hertzi Kassier nett 78

Fifth - David Cunningham nett 80.

These fairly high medal and low stableford scores — was that the result of the new handicapping system or did the course come out to bite the golfers?

Best Nett — Flip Botha 31 points

Nearest to Pin 9/18th — Lawrence Savage.

Bracken timbers removed over 150 pine trees to help make the course easier, and the plantation brushwood is in the process of being removed.

Thanks to Mark from Bracken and his staff for doing an efficient and tidy harvesting job (with minimal damage to the course).

With the removal of some trees we are also trying to bring the course in line with the suggested stroking by Dave Cousins.

The Hermannburg School will host their annual golf days on September 21 and 22 at St Cathryn’s and the results will be published in the next edition of the Greytown Gazette.
