Saretha holing out again

Congratulations to Saretha Maritz who had her third hole-in-one in her life on Tuesday the 6th of October during the ladies’ competition. She decided that the 23rd hole would play faster if she holed out with only one shot. She also did the swim for honour in the clubhouse dam with grace. Watch the video below of her interview as well as the now famous swim.

Well done on your ace, Saretha!

   Bunker sand got attention

Members would have experienced that real “loose sand” bunker play, which should be back in your arsenal soon as we have loosened the bunker sand on most of the holes. Thanks to all the members who came to us and thanked us for doing that. To those that told me that they have just mastered the hard bunkers and that they now have to adapt again feel free to book a lesson on bunker play with Ben.

Playing golf at PGC during Level 1 lockdown

I know this might be boring by now but please realise that we are still under Level 1 lockdown rules, which have not changed since their inception.

Thanks to those members (and visitors) who makes our work easier by adhering to the regulations and rules. We appreciate your continues support and help. To the few that alway need to push the boundaries please realise that your actions might cause the club to close, and many other golf courses for that matter. It is not that difficult…
