Stellenbosch Club Championships

Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 16:26


Amazing to think we are in the 3rd month of 2021 already, with the first two just flying by and only 296 days to Xmas, now that's a bit of a scary thought!

The Stellenbosch Club Championships is around the corner, taking place from the 26th to the 28th of March and we are getting ready for a bigger and better championship than ever... It gives me great pleasure to announce our presenting sponsors Xpanda, Megamix, Pro Crane, Jetmaster and Castor & Ladder for the 2021 Club Championships. On Friday the 26th we will host the Junior Club Championships and Putting Championships. Also for the first time we are introducing a special corporate event to raise funds for league and the junior development program of Stellenbosch GC.

Little bit of memory lane...

It's almost time for Knockouts!

Our annual Knockout Competition will be kicking off in April! Entries for the event have opened and players can put their names down on the lists in the pro shop for both the singles and doubles. There will be limited fields in both these competitions - 64 players for the Individual Knockout and 64 pairs for the Doubles Knockout. Numerous rounds will take place through the year with the winners being announced at our Captains Day in December.

10 March – Vriendskapsbeker (Woensdag-groep)
17 March – ABC Security
24 March – Warwick Wealth
26 – 28 March – Stellenbosch Club Championships
31 March – April Fools Cup

Need a gift for someone special?

Thank you for all the replies on my question last week on what shoe you would choose. In the meantime my personal pair arrived this week and I’m looking forward to dancing around the golf course with them. These shoes are called MyJoy (Icon Professional) and it's great fun to design them. If you ever wanted to get someone a very special gift let me know and I’ll will assist with making the dream come true...#MyJoy
