Foursomes, Fun, Fantastic!
It was an Easter weekend to remember for all that were involved in the Easter Foursomes Challenge! The weather really played its part, which made for some great foursomes golf on both the Outeniqua and Montagu golf courses. The 1st round on the Outeniqua was tightly contested, with John McKeating and George Middleditch, leading the field on a great score of 40 points. Unfortunately, they could not keep up the high standard of golf that was portrayed in the 1st round, as the Montagu took its toll on most pairings, bar 1, as the 2 Mikes namely: Warneke and Hargreaves came through with a fabulous putting display to end with 40 points and together with the 1st round of 34 points, clinched the title for the men. Well done Chaps!

The ladies division was nothing less than exciting, as the 1st round leaders: Pam Southey and Sandy Grieve managed to hold onto their lead and finish with scores of 38 and 31 points to win title.

The A-League also played on Saturday and were able to come through with a convincing win against George. Constantyn and his team went 2-0 up in the foursomes and with wins from Ivan Williams and Thomas Watson, won the game 4-2. Well done to the A-League team!

The Just Jinjer concert attracted over 1800 people onto the driving range on Sunday afternoon. The weather was once again perfect and families from all over set up their picnic areas and enjoyed Easter Sunday afternoon with some great socialising and great music.

See you at Fancourt!

john bland and the ladies

Pictured here is our senior ambassador John Bland, who is in the States to defend the tournament he won last year. John actually played 18 holes with these ladies, not something you often see John do and his better half Sonja had this to say:

On the 18th green on Monday, when I walked over to John to get his putter and ball once he had holed out…. He gave me the golf ball, but held onto his putter… his reasoning: ‘I might need it to fend off these women when they kiss me!!!’ – I call that wishful thinking and you?


Liaisons with Léta

Dear Members,
With Easter behind us now and only a few more off days to relax on the golf course, we still have a few rabbits left in our hats… 

The Foursomes Challenge was a fantastic event with a lot of good feedback (not the golf). Everyone had a great time and lots of fun with this interesting format. Congratulations to the Ladies winning pair : Pamela Southey and Sandra Grieve. And to the winning Men’s pair : Mike Warneke and Mike Hargreaves.

Thank you for each and every golfer’s participation in this event. We look forward to the next get together with our members!

1. Food & Quiz evening – 27 May 2011 (information & invitation to be sent shortly)

May you have a wonderful week!

Best Regards
