Bring on the Sunshine TOUR!
The Vodacom Origins of Golf FINALS
Exposure, competition, great golf, media, revenues and great memories for the "ambassadors" who came to play!
That's why we have golf tournaments. In addidition to the great golf, Dan Nichol, who has his own television show, Dale Hayes, who has his own show and weekly column, Denis Hutchinson who broadcasts on international television and Michael Vlismas who writes syndicated stoires for all sorts of media will all be here to see and then talk about OUR St Francis Links. It's not the SA OPEN (yet) but it will bring more recognition for the course, our amenities, accommodation and our services. Hold thumbs that Mother Nature is on board and all is good for golf at St Francis Links!
We will be hosting all of the top players on the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit - headed by recent champion, Jaco Ahlers, who recently won the final qualifying Vodacom event at Euphoria.
Corporate Golfers enjoy a great day (and night)
The organizers from the PSG Golf Day were very impressed with the day they received here last Thursday. 120 golfers participated in the golf day and more than 130 attended the dinner, prizegiving and auction that followed. Mother Nature joined the day with her best dress on so the only extra requirement was sun block! Corporate days here are often headed by an organizer hired by the company. We make sure that the organizers have everything they need before they ask. We take pride in providing a great experience from the first tee to the last bite of dessert. Well done to Thinus and his team, Eugenie and Brad and their teams and of course, Charl an his team for a great course - day in and day out!
There's nothing better than a HAPPY Bride!
and we make brides very happy!
The personalized service continues when it come to making memories - with more than 180 weddings to date, our team produces the most memorable day for our brides (and grooms). It all starts with the planning and assisting the couple with all of their needs and wants. We make every effort to keep it cost friendly without compromising the quality that is required. It's pretty special under the roof as well!
Trust you are keeping well.
Our wedding hosted at the Links on Saturday, the 15th of October ’16 refers.
We would like to thank you, Eugenie and her team for having the opportunity and the pleasure to enjoy this sought-after
Furthermore we would like to congratulate Eugenie and the superb wedding team for an excellent job done.
She made promises and delivered on each and every promise. Her confidence and calm way of dealing with the groom, bride, flower girls and all the
guests was impressive. You must be very proud to have her on your team.
At last, we would like to bless you and the entire team at the Links.
