We have over the past few months received a number of reports from members, residents and visitors indicating that during play there is a lot of unnecessary chattering going on which in some instances could be considered provocative and contrary to the encouragement of good camaraderie within the club.
Whether related or not, we have also receiving reports that some golfers are wasting time on the course holding up others, while chatting amongst themselves.
In an effort to curb both of these issues, management has concluded an agreement with Lectures Telecoms who build and supply tracking/ intercom devices. Not only do these devices track players movement in real time, but are also equipped with a micro-intercom which allows management to dial in and listen in on, as well as record conversations between players.
The agreement concluded with Lectures Telecoms allows us to commence with the issuing of one of these devices to each four-ball starting 1 April 2021 and should the initiative be successful, we may consider in the future providing a device to each player.
We trust that our members will see the necessity for such an initiative and in the spirit of good comradeship, will embrace this initiative wholeheartedly.

Congratulations to Willie Olivier on winning the WP Premier Amateur Tour Strand Open on Sunday. An outstanding round of 68, including 5 birdies and a solitary bogey on the difficult 6th hole by our 2021 Club Champion and A2B Golf member was enough for Willie to claim victory by one shot over club mate Louise le Grange.
Louis Le Grange put in a great challenge and signed for a 69 to secure T2 alongside Riaan Lewis.
