Members’ Get-together – Special feature!
Clive Horlock has ventured into a world very few other have and he would like to share the experience and invite you to come along!
His talk “Walking with Bushman” will take you to the Bushman and allow you to feel their magic way of life that has never been altered.
Come to our members’ Get-together after golf on Wednesday for a catch-up, a great talk and presentation and a fine dinner.
The PGA Tour travels to Austin, Texas (my old hometown)
This week the Tour returns to Austin CC designed by the legendary Pete Dye for the WGC Matchplat Championships. The top 64 players in the world (minus Henrik Stenson who doesn’t fancy the format) will decend on Austin for golf and hopefully some of the things I love about Austin!
This was my home for a number of years; my daughter Lindsay is still there and will be Gracie’s guest at the event. Hopefully he’ll spend a dinner out with them for some of the best Barbeque on the planet. After he wins he can take on 6th street and the Live Music Capitol of the World. There are three major artists shown in the collage below. be the first to name two of the three and a fourball with your friends here at South Africa’s best is on us! Name all three and I’ll throw in the Santa Burgers!
Put on your glasses!
Austin, Texas is a very special place for golf, food and entertainment. Be sure to watch the WGC Matchplay Championship and get a little taste of Texas! When you want to go, just message me!
