Take a trip to Victoria West
Several member couples will have the honour to play in the Karoo Classic in Victoria West this week. It may be one of the hottest golfing tickets anywhere. Having watched the top players in the world play at Oak Hill in the PGA Championship where the fairways were narrow and the rough thick, this course will offer something completely different. For balls that come to rest in the “never mown” fairways. will be allowed to use our own “fairways” for play. Charl Blaauw, our extremely talented SUP has prepared our fairway for us, ensuring the perfect surface for play.
I had the pleasure of playing in the event last year, so I am sure my course knowledge will go far this year. Once again, longtime residents and members, Jannie and Bimpie Olivier will be our hosts. Their involvement in the Classic extends nearly 40 years.
As you can imagine, with the field limited to 180 players, getting in is a privilege. Staying in requires uninterrupted years of participation. The food that accompanies the event is second to none on the planet – Karoo lamb and all that comes with it. The prize table is worth thousands and the GEES is incomparable.
Maybe you just want to play a casual round there Here are the details. Unfortunately, we do not have reciprocity as they are a destination to themselves.

On the Bag – Nick Geerts!
The Golfing Restaurateur
Nick Geerts, property owner and owner of 22 Eatery in St Francis Bay, has been asked to help by the PGA Championship’s 2022 winner, and 4-time European tour champion, George Coetzee. George is a close friend of Nick and asked him to fly to Italy and have the honour of caddying for him.
The DP World Tour travelled to Rome and the first event was hosted by Nick’s childhood home club. Marco Simone GC was where it all began for him and his brother Philip Geerts – who is a playing professional and regular guest in St Francis Bay.
Unfortunately, George was hindered by an injury and didn’t make the cut. That brought about a bag change to Englishman, David Horsey. Nick and David get along well and have the potential for a good finish through Rinkven International GC, Belgium.
