And Harcourts gave the event a real boost!
The 2017 version of the Ladies’ Invitational was our biggest to date with golfers coming from near and far for the day. Marsha Cooper and her team from Harcourt’s had their banners flying proudly as they came to the party with R5000 for prizes and gifts. Lea from Aqua Spa gave a great talk at lunch expaining all that they have on offer at their FOUR locations and treated the ladies to a voucher for the future and a bonus of 30% off treatments if they came in this week – I’m sure the bookings will follow!
Helga, our Sous Chef, presented a great demonstration for the ladies and then proceeded to eat the souffle she showed them how to make.
The two Ladies Invitational Winners below, Noelene De Ridder and Dr. Lynn Slogrove, bested the field of 40 ladies taking home the trophy with a betterball score of 41 Points counted in. Following them in runner up position was Sandra Cunnigham and her partner Gillian Ferreira on 41 Points counted out, and 3rd on 40 Points Margot McGregor and Ethne Brouard. Brenden Pieters was happy to hand over the gifts from Harcourts with a big smile!

Seasonal packages are now on offer
It’s also the time of year for golf travel. We join others in advertising our course countrywide. The are are a couple of subtle differences between what you pay and what you receive in a golf package. We pride ourselves on over-delivering with personal services, additional opportunities, special events, shoot-outs and so much more. We’ll supply the braai or what you need to do it yourselves; we’ll serve your meals here or recommend the area establishments who will exceed your expectations (and of course, we’ll do the booking for you). Why? Because we can and we want to!
Why not sign up for the special events coming up in the future and expand them into a few days of play! Play in the Inter-Estate Challenge, enter the Ernie Els for Autism in June, start planning for the Invitationals – ladies and men; Invite your friends in for the best golf in SA (and beyond).
