St Cathryn’s news

2019-07-10 06:00

Andre Liddemore is going for the Monthly Mug win this coming Saturday, July 13 when he attempts to win the Farmers Agri-care Monthly Mug, this after his win over the weekend in Greytown.

The July horse “Do It Again” did the double by winning the 2019 Vodacom Durban July (he also won it in 2018). So, all take note: “Smiley Alias Johnny Bravo”, also known as Andre Liddermore, is playing hot golf.

This Saturday we will be playing the Farmers Agri-care Mug and golfers with a formal handicap are invited to play in the mug in the medal or Stableford competition, or both. (Even if you haven’t got a formal handicap, come take part in our winter special — R220 per golfer for unlimited golf, cart included).

Our golf course is currently looking a bit dry and brown after the frosts we have received. The third green is taking a severe beating with geese damage and repairs are done on a daily basis. We now have two scarecrows around the third and these seem to keep the geese away in the day but during the night the geese don’t see the scarecrows and then they move in, only to be bewildered at sunrise. Please note the scarecrows will allow you to play through.

Other maintenance issues that are in process are the levelling of the White first and 16th tee boxes and repairs to the Blue 13th tee box.

On Thursday the long-awaited re-rating of our golf course will take place when two gentlemen, Gary Leader and Dave Cousins, will be visiting and playing St Cathryn’s for re-rating purposes.

Anyone available for a free round of golf on Thursday to please feel free to join us from 8.30 am onwards.

How long the actual administrative part of the new rating will take, and changes to the golf computer, is “wait and see” but we will keep you posted.

To book a place in the Monthly Mug, or even to take part in our Winter Challenge, contact Piet at 083 269 1661. — Supplied.
