Hello from Simola GC!
Monday, June 18, 2018 - 12:12
I am writing from a cold and wet Simola GC this morning, where I am playing in the annual Webster Cup for the Coastal Team of the PGA of South Africa. I’ll be back on Wednesday, hopefully with some more gold, or silverwear, for the office…
The ladies like me again as the rains stayed away on Tuesday…
However, we did have lovely rain towards the end of last week. Let’s hear three cheers for weatherman Pete, at last he got it right!

9 in 45 rescheduled
It was bittersweet as we had to postpone the 9 in 45 on Friday due to the bad weather. Bittersweet, because if you have been enjoying Cape Town living for the past two years, you would know that we desperately need the rain! So, watch this space for the new date, it's coming soon...
Pictured here is the 16th dam, it filled up nicely during the last couple of weeks!
What a lovely day, what a lovely format, what a lovely sponsor! Thank you Harcourts for a brilliant Members Day on Wednesday. I just loved the format, although it did make the round a bit slower than normal as the golfers had to think, and as a professional we know thinking and golf does not go well together…
As mentioned at the prizegiving, this was the first round of three rounds, with the best pair over the three rounds qualifying for an additional prize. The next round and last round will be taking place on the 22nd of August and the 26th of September. Each of the rounds will have a unique betterball format, the team with the highest total after the 3rd round being crowned the 2018 Harcourt Series Pairs Champions.
So, if you are in the market for a house, farm, business or you would just like to rent, please contact the Harcourt team who will gladly assist!
Also on Wednesday, the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit leader ended his round with a hole-in-oneon the 9th (his 18th) to shoot 29. Not bad…Thanks for the round of drinks Justin!

Dates to diarise
It's hard to believe there are only 190 days left until Christmas, which means we are finished with the first half of the year! We have a lot of events and surprises from now until the end of the year. So, the only advise I can give you is keep the diaries open enough for lots of time at the golf course.
The Honorable Gentlemen usually taking place on the 16th of June has been moved to the 24th of September 2018. Sadly, this year the 16th fell on a Saturday and with a limited field in The Honorable Gentleman, this decision was taken to move to later in the year. In 2019 we will be moving back to June.
See you all on Wednesday for the Special General Meeting starting at 18h30. Join us after your round of golf, or come and join us after work.
All the best,
