Greetings to you all for the last time this year and may I just wish you all a very merry Christmas and a fantastic NewYear. We at the club are getting nice and busy, with lots of returning faces and Christmas spirit abounding!
May I also take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Hermanus Golf Club. I travel around to many different golf clubs and I can assure you we are up there with the best, so pat yourselves on the back.
This past Sunday saw the last round of the very popular junior series tournament, the Kosie Pieters Championships. This is the brainchild of labour consultant Riaan Pieters, who early this year wanted to get a junior tournament running each month for the kids in the club and from the surrounding areas. The idea was to also provide a platform further down the line to expose juniors of all capacities to competitive golf, and if there were juniors who were unable to afford the costs, we would envisage assisting in this respect.
This initiative was very kindly sponsored by FinGlobal and I am extremely happy to report that it was a terrific success. Many thanks must also go to the visionary Hermanus Golf Club committee for their wholehearted support, with no charge for the juniors to play each month, and to our caterer Tullishe le Roux who provided the delicious food at a fraction of its normal cost.
Sunday was the last round of the Championships, which was an individual stableford. The juniors also knew that the top four would be getting a “fedex-style” cumulative prize, the top prize being a new set of fitted golf clubs to the value allowed by their amateur status. Very exciting indeed!
Until next year have a great one, play the course as you find it and ball as it lies!
Julz and the team.
