NEWSLETTER APRIL 2018

 

Dear Members,

 

The late rains and the superb efforts by our greens team have made the course lush and beautiful but a wonderful test of golf. The greens are rolling superbly allowing for great scoring – if of course you stick to greens and fairways. Funny that even though I have played this game for many years that’s one lesson I keep forgetting…

 

We would also encourage members who believe in value for money to use their SAGA cards when making purchases at the club. It gives members a 10% discount on these purchases and enhances club security and given our history with this, that is indeed a very welcome benefit! Money can be added to your cards at any point of sale terminal in the club or via EFT (Use your member number and TOP UP as your reference, but please be aware that using EFT takes a couple of days for your credit to reflect.)

 

The long-awaited AGM covering the last two financial years, has now been scheduled for Wednesday, June 13th 2018. Further communications can be expected in this regard.

 

We are pleased to advise members that Nigel Roscoe as a PGA professional is offering golf lessons at Leeuwkop. For further details on timings, rates etc. please contact Nigel on 083-586 0184.

Golf is meant to be a pleasant experience, assisting players in releasing some of the built up stresses of everyday life (which we all know interferes too much with our golf).

 

To this end, members are requested to always try and keep up with the fourball ahead, to repair all pitch marks and to carry a sandbag at all times to use on the fairways to ensure these stay as inviting as possible during our autumn and winter months.

 

We would also appeal to all members to keep our course as clean as possible by using the waste bins situated on the tee boxes to dispose of waste – it only takes a moment and makes for a much better experience for all.

 

Look forward to seeing you all on the course in the near term…

 

Regards,
