A friendly reminder to all players: Please remember to capture your score within 72 hours on the completion of your game. Otherwise the handicap service provider enters a penalty score on your behalf. Scores can be captured via the internet too. Simply go to http://newsletters.retailtribe.com/servlet/link/21/62187/353535/1519021 and log on. If it is the first time you are doing this, you will need to enter the 10 digit SA Player ID number printed on the bottom left front of your handicap card, plus the 4 character pin number. These details can then be changed once you are logged in, to your own choice. Remember – Capturing your score remains solely your responsibility and not the club’s.

Our newest Member on the right, ‘George’, was rescued from the course on Sunday after his mom was presumably killed by a golf ball. He will go to the Darwin Primate Group in Plett where he will hopefully lead a full life away from flying objects. Thanks to all who took part in the little guy’s ‘rescue’.
The Men’s A and B Division Club Champs takes place on the 12th and 13th of February 2011 and the entry list is up on the Upcoming Events notice board.
Closing date for entries is Wednesday 09 February 2011. Maximum handicap is 18 and the field will be capped at 160 players.
At the Carwash!
We have enlisted the assistance of Heinrich Janse van Rensburg at the Executive Mobile Car Wash to wash your vehicles at the club on a Wednesday from 11am. Heinrich buys his own recycled water from the local fire department and only uses biodegradable chemicals. His service will start from 11am on Wednesday the 26th of January 2011 and any car keys are to be exchanged directly between yourselves and his team. Click here to read his advert.
Get Your Fix
You’ve asked for coffee to be available in the bar after hours and from Wednesday this week it will be! Nescafe Ricoffy sachets can be purchased from the bar staff at R5 per sachet (milk and sugar included in the price) as soon as the halfway house has closed for the day.
Have you ever wondered how much water is in our dam? An interesting little snippet from Koos Sieberhagen that the capacity of our dam is 50 000m3, but the current rate of water through the Augrabies waterfall (about 120km west of Upington) is 5000m3, meaning it would take 10 seconds for our dam to empty… Amazing!
