All vendor booths will also have sanitizer in addition to the standard sanitizer around the venues and general areas of the club house.

For the parents wishing to enjoy some of the oysters, pizza, bubbly and more on offer at the Milkwood & Sunbird Catering booths whilst listening to the tunes of the Pauli duo, can do so with ease as children will be tended to by the outsourced child minders overseeing the play area this evening.

Members Competitions

TRY YOUR LUCK AT THE MASTERS
As “The Masters” will be the first Major for the year, broadcasted on Super-sport from 8-11 April, we thought to share in the excitement by hosting a fun competition to co-inside with the tournament on Saturday, 10 April.
 
Our normal weekly competition on the
day is a 4Ball Alliance (2 scores to Count and all 4 to count on the short holes) as per usual to our standard Saturday member competition.
This Fun Competition is in addition to the Member Competition and will work as follow;

Rules:
  • R20 per member to enter
  • In the Proshop you will draw a PGA Player before you tee off and his score will count and be added to your individual Points you shoot in the club competition.
  • The PGA players plays off scratch at the Masters, so if he shoots 69 gross he will have 39 stableford points.
  • You, as the member scores 34 individual stableford points in the club competition, so added to your PGA Players 39 points that you picked = 73 points will be the combined score.
  • All the entry fees will be pooled and paid out in 3 cash prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place.

Member Achievements

WE WELCOME OUR MEN'S CAPTAIN TO THE HOLE-IN-ONE CLUB
Congratulations to our Men’s Captain - Nigel Pillay on his first hole-in-one on Monday on the 8th.

“Hugo Schlechter, Dennis Roos, George Herman and I all hit good shots and anyone of us could have been close or in the hole. We had the hole surrounded and a bonus with my ball in the cup. Hugo, Dennis and George all made birdies - what a hole!!”



GREG WOODBRIDGE COMPLETES THE DOUBLE


What a Champion!  Congratulations to Greg Woodbridge on winning the
WP Senior Masters Championship at Royal Cape on Sunday.

With a birdie on the last to win by one - 143 (72, 71) Greg has completed the double, after his victory in the WP Senior Open in February.

It’s a winning partnership as Candice Woodbridge caddied for both wins.
Greg also now moves into #1 spot on the WP Senior Ranking. 

Once again, Congratulations to you, Greg!







MASTER'S LEAGUE TEAM IS ON A ROLL
A superb bounce back win for Team Atlantic Beach Links against Kuils River this past weekend in the WP Masters League. The 'Away' Team of Raymond Dodgen & Herman Rheeder and Matt Demery & Greg Woodbridge laid the foundation winning one of their games. While the 'Home' Team of George Herman & Clarrie Middleton and Mark Muller & Flip Niemandt won both their betterball stableford games for the 3/1 win in Round 5.  While it is a ‘team effort’ the MVP of the day must go to George Herman who sank a 12-foot birdie putt on 18 to post a 73.

Together with our league clothing and apparel sponsor Pam Golding Properties - Western Seaboard and Pam Golding Properties Property Management Services - we are rooting for you all the way. The final match before the playoffs is against Clovelly on the 10 April.
