THE recently completed “Greens revenge” golf tour in the Midlands delivered some major surprises.
The golf tour was the brainchild of Carl Groenewald 25 years ago with 12 players from Johannesburg, Cape Town (all old school buddies of Carl), joined with former Pietermaritzburg FNB banker, Gary Ponting, Graham Crookes, Rob Martin and many others who have joined over the years. Tours have taken place in George, Sun City, Cape Town, East London and locally the Midlands, Durban, and South and North coast golf courses.
Sadly, recently Rob Martin died, who was the tour organiser for many years and carried the purse. Martin joins three other golfers Greg Burnett, Rowan Meak and Derrick Dollman who have left us behind. The tour now consists of only eight golfers with four golfers now from St Cathryn’s. A wreath was laid at the third hole for all golfing buddies that have gone ahead.
