Greetings on Bok Friday
Friday, October 6, 2023 - 19:27
Hope I find you well on this beautiful day. Our ladies section hosted another very successful Stellenbosch Ladies Open Day proudly presented by Mediclinic.
I am sharing this beautiful newsletter written by Julie Gibson for you all to enjoy. What a day, enjoyed by a wonderful group of ladies…. So sad I missed this one! I’ll be back next year! Enjoy the read.
OPEN Day 2023
“Should we…shouldn’t we…should we postpone” was on the lips of the Committee during the week prior to our Open Day. A decision was made on the Monday, and from there, it was: “all systems go come rain or sunshine!”
The weather was not great and didn’t exactly fit in with our theme…SPRING… but this did not deter our golfers who braved the steady, soaking rain and enjoyed themselves.
Mediclinic Southern Africa, our Main Sponsor, made a very generous donation to our day and prizes. Our Ladies’ Committee worked hard to secure additional prizes from some 47 sponsors. We say a BIG THANK YOU to all the sponsors below (Furthermore, our five “wet hole” sponsors got to understand the context of a “wet hole”).
The dinner and prizegiving afterwards made up for the somewhat “muted” golf – the pictures below say it all!
Registration: Lana Meyer, Marizan Palm and Melinda Pelser (Marketing Operations Manager of Mediclinic Southern Africa - our Main Sponsor)
THANK YOU to EACH of our sponsors:
WET, WET, WET…….
Our regular, committed, Tuesday sponsors: Melanie (Somerset West Pro Shop) and Louise (Wynland Eiendomme) (Seen together with Antoinette Peters).
A touch of spring…

My Bok Friday food for thought
Enjoy this video follow up from Louis' Bok Friday of a few weeks ago - I am not going away with this innovative strategy of helping anyone toward more consistency since I am seeing the results every day! I like to call these video's food for thought rather than a tip for you to try out the next day - you are unique and its only by testing you that you can really know what works for you...
Thanks to Srixon Golf SA for the matching green & gold cap! And naturally our ever faithful and accurate partners, FlightScope.
Enjoy your weekend and Go Bokke (or go the Irish for now!).
What’s your dividing line?
Are you after more spin and feel, or are you chasing higher speeds and longer carry? Srixon’s new Z-STAR DIVIDE comes in two options, but whichever one you choose, you’re going to enjoy the view.
