Junior Championships
We will be having our first ever Stellenbosch Golf Club Junior Championships on Friday afternoon
from 15h00. This is where golf started for so many great golfers of today! I can’t wait to see these
youngsters pegging it up on Friday. #youngchampion

Club Championships
The draw is out and the stands are going up! It’s Championship weekend time and we are all
wondering who will be crowned the men’s and ladies champion on Sunday afternoon.
If you are not playing, please come and join us for a social time behind the 18th green as we welcome
the golfers home on Sunday from around 12h00. #beachampion

The Blaauwklippen Cup
The first round of the Blaauwklippen Cup took place on Wednesday 25 April. It is always such a
pleasure to welcome and host our neighbours from De Zalze Golf Club. The first round was tighter
than what we would have hoped for, but in the end, we did win the first round with a score of
Stellenbosch GC 14 and De Zalze GC 10. Well played team Stellenbosch! The next round will only
be played in October at De Zalze, with the final taking place middle November. #blaauwklippencup

On Wednesday it’s Beyerskloof time!

It’s the first one for the year and I can’t wait to join Beyers for a round of golf. As always,
many good stories will be shared after the round, while enjoying a bottle of Beyerskloof Pinotage.
What better way can there be to get ready for the up & coming Stellenbosch Club Championships!

Welcome back, Chris!

We welcome our General Manager, Chris, back after he returned from a bucket list
golf trip through Scotland. It’s always great to share the stories and the experience,
have a look at some photos below. Great having you back Chris!

Hollow tining arrangements

As you will all be aware of by now, we will be closed from the 7th to the 11th of May for
Autumn Treatment (Hollow tining) on the golf course. Reciprocity has been arranged at
the following clubs – Devonvale, De Zalze, Paarl GC, Strand GC.

As we get ready to open the golf course again on the 12th of May (Saturday) we will be
introducing a great new event called Commando Golf on Friday afternoon 11 May
from 15h30. I will explain this a bit more in next week's newsletter, but in short you tee
off from the 5th hole's tee box and you finish on the 6th hole green. All happening in divisions to
make it fair, with the players completing the “long” hole in the least shots in their divisions
going of in a final to crown the Commando Champion. The fires will be going and the bar
will be open, with the deck giving everyone a perfect advantage point. #commandogolf

Be a Champion,
