One for the Memory Book

Our 10th Year in Review! 

This starts with the end of the year first - Our 10th Anniversay week included a great evening with Bob Skinstad and Greg Minnaar as we hosted the SHARP golf day. The Night was filled with light as the glow balls were flying. It was a great night for the entire family as everyone participated in the golf and the games on offer. The best-dressed man went to Norman Pretorius (tho there were many contenders) and the best dressed lady was Pete Maskew in his wife's tights! The first-ever Par-3 Club Champs were won by Keith Simpson and Margot McGregor. The nett prize winners were Norman Pretorius and and Sandy Cunningham.
