IT was a busy weekend of golf at St Cathryn's with lots of visitors, fun and laughter.
The Farmers Agri-Care December Monthly Mug was played on Saturday, 17 December, and the member who won the Captains Putter had a 27 shot swing around and won the Farmers Agri-Care Mug of Mugs on Sunday.
The winner of the Monthly Mug, Marius Muller, won his first ever Monthly Mug.
Other visitors were the 40th year reunion class from Hermannsburg who came to play golf and relax before they went back to see how their old school was doing.
The annual AGM and report back meeting was held at 5pm on Saturday and Piet Nel reported on the achievements of the members this past year, and members discussed the changes done and to be done to the course.
The rules committee are very busy working on the final “strokes” for all the holes so that the updated scorecard can be printed.
St Cathryn’s also thanked all members and visitors for their support this past year, with special mention of our sponsors Farmers Agri-Care, Up-one Farming, CPS Seedlings, Tuta Carriers, Plennegy, Dr Rikus Kloppers and the Cake Lady - Liekie. We are also thankful to all sponsors who support golf days played at St Cathryn’s during the year. We all enjoyed the braai and fellowship afterwards.
The AGM report back was attended by Tienie Muller, golf captain from Greytown, who spoke on the good relationship between our two clubs and wished us well for 2017.
Liekie Steyn won the 2016 Grand Prix and walked off with a quarter sheep, as Liekie received the most points from all the Farmers Agri -Care monthly mugs she played during 2016.
