Fancourt Golf news…

Greetings from Lloyd 

Greetings Members and Friends,

We are nearing the end of our summer events season this Friday with the Hawaiian pool party and spit braai, followed by the following Friday the 25th Orient Express food and quiz click here to see the excellent menu. It has been a busy summer for those of you that supported the program and I would like to thank you.

The winter events program starts on April 1st to 30th September and I would appreciate your input. What worked well, what didn’t? Any suggestions? The tried and tested food and quiz evenings have been great, the sundowner average attendance, the 4 hole at the Academy is always a winner, what about 4 hole night golf at the Academy when it gets darker earlier? What about a parent/grandparent and child 9 hole golf day…Do you fancy some wine, whiskey tastings? Please click here to send in your ideas.

The nice thing about a weekly newsletter is just that, it’s weekly, and that means we can more accurately predict events such as the weather and the good news is for this Friday’s pool party looks like it’s going to be a scorcher!!

Did you Know?
I was making enquiries for Mr Ross last week on room rates for some friends of his and specials members could receive, and was pleasantly surprised. The Hotel has a special room rate of R1200 (valid until March 2012) including breakfast for members’ guests, divide that by two people and that’s pretty good value. I also found out that for special events and birthdays, members do not pay any venue hire and there are also some great specials on conferencing. Email our new on site marketing manager Ulrike on for more details.

That’s about it for this week, but before I go, I thought I would share this excellent quote with you… ”Sixty years ago I knew everything. Now I know nothing. Education is the progressive discovery of our ignorance.” ~ Will Durant
