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.

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.
