Woodlands Days for HOSPICE

Sister Ingrid represents 50% of the Hospice team who, last year, assisted more than 160 patients. Hospice is there for those who need and want support in their final days. Woodland Dairy, over the past 21 has been a major contributor to Hospice through their fundraising golf days. In the past three years alone, Hospice has been handed checques totalling more than R1,1M, with this year setting another record – R440 000! 

Over the years that we have been involved, the event has grown from one day to two, and the two days are now fully subscribed! 112 played on Thursday and 116 played on Friday! The Mexican theme saw many of the players make an effort with their attire; Midland Logistics came on Friday with specially made shirts. I found some good Mexican music for the welcome in the parking lot and tee sponsors shared a little tequila and hot chilis along the way. 

Two days of perfect autumn weather sealed the deal.  

Elmarie (and  Heilie) get their names on the Board

I saw the look and Elmarie’s and Heilie’s faces when I announced that Margot McGregor and Melissa Palmer had come second on 41 points. They both looked at each, covered their smiles and realized that their 42 total was the winning score. Anna-Marie Vlok and her partner, Yvette Bezuidenhout, came third on 38 points for the day. 

Long before there were even any discussions about bringing the Bard’au Spa here, Anne Coesens met with Thinus and me to discuss sponsorship opportunities. She wanted to promote her spa to our members. Then, she raised the bar, by lending her full support to the annual Invitational, donating R10 000 for the prizes. 

After welcome snacks, a great day of golf, another priceless lunch from Chef Jon and a cooking demonstration that followed, I am not sure prizes were even necessary! 






Hot Lady in RED! 


The Ferrari Club returned to St Francis Links for a great evening in the Lighthouse Restaurant and night over at The St Francis Golf Lodge. I am sure the journey was as good as the destination!
