THE Farmers Agri-care monthly mug field on February 16 drew 17 players and very good support came from Greytown neighbouring golf club, Seven Oaks, Maritzburg and Hillcrest, which is much appreciated. Due to other commitments, some golfers teed off at 7.15am and other golfers and visitors tee-ed off from 9am.

The heavy rain, about 115mm, that fell last week made the going tough, with the kikuyu fairways getting thick in places. The empty dams and ponds have filled up, so where in the past one could play happily out of some of the hazards, now one drops a shot or two and the ball is lost in the hazard. Captain Fanie vetkoek van Wyk continued his winning spree and is seemingly unstoppable right now, winning the mug for the second month in a row. Let’s all watch his handicap.


First — Fanie Van Wyk nett 70

Second — Tienie Muller nett 74

Third — Dieter Meyer nett 77

Fourth — Fritz Volker nett 80

Fifth — Owen Naidoo nett 81

Nearest to pin 9/18th : Piet Potspruit

Captains Putter: Andre Liddemore

Best stableford: Tienie Muller 34 points.

The slope rating complaints received from members and visitors with regards to the “severe cutting” of their handicaps when one opens a round at our club is currently being addressed with Dave Cousens, the person assigned to the club for instituting the new slope rating. Members will be updated as soon as more information is received.

This Saturday, February 23, we are looking forward to our visit to Greytown, where some of our members will be playing in the Jaco Botha Memorial, hosted by Flip and Ronel Botha.
