THE Kragga Kamma Golf Club is turning 15 years old soon and will be celebrating the occasion with a special IPS competition on November 5.

The golf course was founded in 2001 and started off as a basic and modest 9-hole layout. It is privately owned and has always targeted social golfers.

During its existence, the course has undergone many revisions. It was an 18-hole course once before reverting back to only 9 holes.

“Most of the holes are challenging and the greens are requiring your close attention, to make that vital putt fall. All this makes the golf course to be affectionately known as one of golf’s hidden gems,” said Frans Schellingerhout, President of the Kragga Kamma Golf Club.

Players can choose between three different T-box markers to suit themselves and the challenges presented. It is, therefore, possible to play a less challenging round of golf should one wish to avoid the blue markers at the back.

The Club is part of the Eastern Province Golf Union (EPGU) and is registered with South African Golf Associations (SAGA), which means that affiliated players can swipe their scores into the national network.

While golf is the key focus of the club, provision is also made for squash, table tennis, pool, darts and bowls enthusiasts.

The Committee is planning to make this year’s anniversary golf day a joyous one for all competitors. Players of all levels are welcome to join in the fun, even non-affiliated players. There will be sponsored T-boxes and greens and the regular ‘watering holes’ as well.

“We are looking forward to the anniversary golf day and the owners and committees are looking forward to welcome all our members, friends and patrons at the celebration,” said Schellingerhout.

The golf club has already received a number of exciting prizes for the IPS competition that will take place on November 5.

Bookings are now open and can be made at 041 379 4155.
