Captains Report

Benoni Lake Golf Club

A beautiful Sunday morning greeted us

made especially wonderful by the world

cup win the previous day. After much

welcome rain had fallen the course had softened up a little. Many players

were nursing sore heads but proud hearts. Terry, Lindsay and Cathy were

really the early birds this time with our shotgun start scheduled for

6:30am and registration at 5:30am. Terry had put in a lot of extra time to

have everything sorted before the rush and I can tip my cap to this wonderfully

organised damsel once more. Amazingly there were no late comers

and we tee’d off at precisely 6:30. This was an experiment to see if

the format would work and it went off very smoothly followed by much

positive comment. The round was completed in 4.5 hours and the ladies

had the results sheet ready in 55 minutes. The pressure that they worked

under to achieve this is great. I would believe that the format could work

even better for an afternoon field.

A big thank you to the Lake club for their assistance, Robbie Frank

(chairman), Paul Slaven (club captain), Rachel Hunter (Pro) and the staff

in the pro shop, Julie and Wendy and the staff in the halfway house and

Wesley and his staff having the course ready so early. One can get an

idea of how much organisation goes into getting a golf day ready for your

enjoyment. The next time you feel like venting your anger due to a small

mishap on the day, spare a thought for all the work that has been done

to try and give you the perfect golf experience. Thanks to Ray Karshagen

for getting up early to come and marshal (Loco)


Captains Report

Benoni Lake Golf Club

Thank you to our sponsor Europcar, we are

truly grateful to our monthly sponsors.

My fourball consisting of all Nomads with

Paul Slaven (Lake Captain), Ricu Viljoen (Europcar) and Johan Beytell did

not enjoy the greatest of days with the Altar Bunny prize and Snakekiller

coming our way, mind you Ricu soldiered on in a lone fight to try and salvage

some pride.

My favourite duty is to hand out awards and there were quite a few:

25 year ties : Mike “Face” Cresswell and Craig Webster and to make it

special they were inducted together all those years ago.

5 year ties: Paul Nkuna and rather belated to Piet Botha

Silver Salvers to Mike King and Dave Hoehler, well played.

Before our playing year finale, the Gold Cup, at BCC on 8 th December we

have the Andrew Mentis day on 24 th November at Kempton and the Mystery

tour on the 30 th November be sure you’re entered then you can go

off and have a rest.


We wish to Thank our National Sponsors

Membership Report

Prospective Members


What an exciting weekend of sport we had!

Our team in green and gold, lifting the coveted Webb

Ellis trophy brought pride to our Nation!

Needless to say, we had a number of very quiet and subdued

Nomads early on Sunday morning!

I was really worried and stressed about the shotgun start,

but everyone got to the club on time for the siren, and in

just 4 ½ hours the field had completed the round!

It was pretty stressful having to process all the scores at

one time, but we managed, and in record time prize giving

was underway!

Thank you to everyone for co-operating in getting to the

club on time, and abiding to the requests of grab and go!

It always helps to work as a team!

A special thank you to my ladies, Cathy and Lindsay for

all their help and support on the day, and in helping to

make the day so successful!
