WE were blessed with warm sunshine on both September 20 and September 21 for the 27th Hermannsburg (HMB) Golf Day at St Cathryn’s Golf Estate. The golfers from far and near were thus able to play full rounds on two dry days, albeit with a little breeze on Friday. We are most grateful to all our many sponsors who contributed most generously to make the golf day another successful event for our school this year — our heartfelt thanks go to each one. A big thank you goes to the golfers, whose good spirits and friendly competitiveness were key to the congenial atmosphere. Thank you also to Piet and Cathy Nel and the staff of St Cathryn’s, the golf day committee, Hermannsburg staff and pupils, and members of our Hermannsburg family who worked tirelessly to make sure that everything ran smoothly and that there was good food (and enough of it) for all to enjoy. We congratulate Fanie van Wyk and André Scheepers on achieving the highest score (47 points on count-out) — Steve van der Merwe and Piet Nel gave them a good run for their money. In third was Gerald Sibiya and Mbekizeni Biyela with 46 points o.c.o; fourth was Bheki Mlangeni and Marius Muller; in fifth was Cebo Zwane and Bheki Mbokazi 45 points o.c.o; and in sixth was Vic Drogemoller and Keith Davies.Other achievers included Ronel Botha (longest drive, ladies), Clive Kitch (longest drive, gents), MJ Mook (nearest to pin on 2/11), André Scheepers (nearest to pin on 9/18) and Alpha Zwane (nearest to pin for 2 on 12). We look forward to seeing all the golfers again in 2020. — Supplied.
