Can you say, MAURITIUS!

The 1st five COUPLES are in! 
 
Mauritius - 20-27 September!
Tony Gunton, our friend from Fancourt and owner of the successful tour agency, GOTravel, has come up with a great idea pairing five couples from Fancourt with five couples from St Francis Links to play a little friendly inter-estate challenge at Anahita in Mauritius. The time is right, the price is great and the Resort at Anahita is outstanding. The former PGA Professional of the Year and GM at Anahita is none other than my great friend Dave Usendorff and he is the host with the most. Dave will go the extra mile to see that your needs and wants are met (and exceeded). 
 
The trip includes accommodation for 7 nights (Garden Suites), breakfast and dinner each day, unlimited golf to include three competitive rounds and airfares from JHB.

Houses
 
"Where are you going, Liezl?" I ask. She says, "I'm off to another site handover!"
That makes it 19 homes under construction as we speak with an additional two renovations. There should be a further 10 new build handovers in the next few weeks,  Since 1 October (the start of our financial year), 17  homes have already been completed with 18 plans approved and another 24 in the planning and submission stages. We have 61 transfers this year already and another 18  pending. Best of all, nearly 60% are permanently occupied with kids playing everywhere (big kids, too!) 
 

HPF and our Chef...that was teamwork, by definition! 
Wilhelm Pienaar, the CEO and Head Winemaker at Hermanuspietersfontein entertained the room with his knowledge and passion for wine! Chef Jon and his team, as well as our front of house team did the rest as the combination paired their best with each other for a great evening here at The Club. Thanks to all of you who attended and shared your positive comments after.
