THE Kranskop Farmers Association’s nine hole competition drew a “mix veggie pack” of golfers. There were the farmers from the area, their sons, contractors, and social golfers.

The competition was held over nine holes, giving those making hay while the sun shines, and those planting their maize, time to get the last seeds into the ground.

The format was Medal — American scramble and golfers with no official handicaps were given a handicap. They played off the blue course while the handicapped golfers played off the white course.

While the men played golf, the ladies of the district enjoyed their sponsored “Annie Sloan chalk paint workshop” held by Ingrid Lens from Palette. Not only did the ladies have fun painting and learning new techniques, they also had a happy afternoon chatting and catching up with each other. A very big thank you to our generous sponsor and to Lorraine for all her hard work and organising.

After prize-giving, everyone enjoyed an early supper and the Kranskop Farmers association’s last function for 2018.

This coming Saturday, November 24 is the last official Farmers Agri-care Monthly Mug for the year, as December’s mug will be the first for the 2019 season.

It’s the last opportunity to catch the Grand Prix prize, half a lamb, and with Tienie, Fanie, Marius, and Dieter in the home straight, it’s going to be an exciting finish.

We have entered two four-balls for Sunday’s Chris Knight Golf Day at Mandeni (Sunday, November 25) and anyone interested in playing can give Piet a call. The format is individual stableford and its an 8 am and 8.10 am tee off.

The planning for the family golf day away is at an advanced stage, a coastal course has been earmarked and the date is Thursday, December 27.

The cost is R500 and includes golf, cart, and competition fee. Lunch afterwards will be at Ziggi’s German Restaurant at Salt Rock. Please book with Piet at 083 269 1661 by December 15.
