April is a month for Celebrating

SFL

Specials for our members and our visitors who love St Francis Links

We want you, our valued members, and you, our friends, to take part in a month of celebration! Since our opening in 2006, we have worked hard to take this great Jack Nicklaus Signature design to a higher level. Our focus remains in keeping it all natural, while improving playability, memorability and, of course, variety of shots to be played. After achieving Best New Golf Course in South Africa in 2007, we embarked on a journey to get better and better while keeping our budgets conservative and our standards high. We have improved with every ranking, starting in the top-10 and now the top-5

Please make the month of April one to remember by coming and sharing this masterpiece with your friends! Check out these great celebratory offers below!

Raising funds again through our great Links

Nico Malan played their fundraiser here on Saturday with 80 players in the field and R85 000 in the bank after a great day and night here at The Links. We can put up with some wear and tear when charity and fundraising benefit so much!

Tula Geldenhuys, Ian de Lange, Boetie Zietsman and Lourens Geldenhuys took home the top prize with 100 pts (scramble drive Alliance).

Down load the Zapper App and take a chance!

Team member of the Week:

Micaela Loggenberg

I have started working at St. Francis Links in November 2020 and provide first-contact customer interaction including booking times, checking in golfers, selling merchandise, and cleaning and stocking the golf shop.  Not only do I enjoy helping and interacting with customers, but I also love a little bit of everything, the planning, the communication with vendors and speakers, the creative aspects, the cyclical nature of the job, and my co-workers.

I’m really energetic and a great communicator. Working in sales has helped me build confidence and taught me the importance of customer loyalty.  I am punctual, dependable and can be counted on to finish what I’ve started. I understand my customers’ needs.  I have also completed my Diploma in Tourism Management at Nelson Mandela University in November 2020.

I have both my parents and we are three siblings, of which I am the youngest. They find themselves in great careers and work hard to accomplish their goals, which I truly admire.

“It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crop”

It just simply says, that hard work truly pays off and you will eat the fruit thereof. No matter how difficult the challenge would be, it shouldn’t limit you but limit the challenge.

 

Thank you all for caring about your course – #leading the way
