On Tuesday, the entire Links team made a proper day of it celebrating with games in the morning and a prizegiving lunch at Quayside. It was a year worth celebrating as our revenues from increased business lead to results that were our best ever. Golf lead the way with a 17% increase in rounds that equated to a 16% in revenues. We have more homes under construction than ever before and more properties transferred (51) in a single year.
I have always said that we are blessed to have great assets - our course, our clubhouse and leisure center. Nothing surpasses the town planning, design and layout of estate, offering our members privacy, secure living and great views.
Everyone on our team understands our “Why” - everyone who comes through our gates is a potential new homeowner.
I would like to congratulate the BROWN TEAM (Brenden Pieters | Claudia Breda | Edwina Louis | Michelle Carelse | Rowayne Zietsman | Sibusiso Bevile | Ayabonga Apleni who was the winners of our “Boeresport Day”
We also did a best dressed team award. Each team had to dress one person in items that has been provided. Team BLUE was the winning team. Clifford Hammond was the employee that was chosen to be dressed up.
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO HONOR THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUPPORTED US FOR YEARS - 5 and 10 years of service.
5 Year Awards: Mieta Louis | Catherina Waren | Fransina Williams | Myboy Nyangintaka
10 Year Awards: Louise Nieveldt | Kevern Burger | Eugenie Burger | Lungisile Maninjwa
Thanks to you all - the best TEAM in the business. You earned a good party!
