Quiz Night pleases another full house
140 in attendance!
The McNaughtons and the Nienabers hosted another incredible evening of fun with a great Quiz Night – with every category covered! Some questions separated the all-knowing to the unknowing. Thanks to all who participated and the official scorer, Graham Botha, and his able assistant Andrew Schlebusch!

 Easter Weekend
From face painting to egg hunting, St Francis Links played host to many, many families and children!
The Easter Bunny was here and certainly was a hit with the little ones!

Pieter Zietsman Goes to Tour School!
Pieter demonstrates what I look for in a sportsman and a gentleman. He comes with respect and a humble nature. Yet, after playing with him yesterday, I can see how much his game has developed and how much focus he shows. Golf is hard. And Pieter is working hard at it. We are so proud that he is going to Tour School.
Tour school is the gateway to the Sunshine Tour. Amateurs and professionals alike attempt this annually and their results will determine their positioning.
We had a chat with Pieter:

“My love for golf started in grade 6 after I played in a couple of junior events while on holiday.  I was chosen to represent EP in a few age groups.In my grade 7 year, while playing in a rugby tournament, Outeniqua High School approached my parents and offered us a rugby bursary.

I love the George area and the High School. Rugby was my main priority as we practiced from Mondays to Thursdays.
In my grade 9 year, I was chosen as the junior rugby player of the year. While at Outeniqua, I started to participate in a few South Cape golf events and I was selected to represent the Louis Oosthuizen golf academy in my last 3 years at school. This was an amazing experience as we got to play with Louis on a few occasions.

After school, I was offered a few golf scholarships in the USA. I however decided not to take the offer and studied Human Movement Science at NMU, where I also graduated and represented the EP interprovincial side for the past 5 years.
At St Francis Links, I played in 4 Eastern Province amateur championships where I made the final on 3 occasions and won the title twice. I also won the St Francis Links trophy that forms part of the Eastern Province calendar.

Notable other tournaments that I won in 2023 was the Port Elizabeth Open and my 2023 stoke average in tournaments was 71.39.”

This young man is ambitious and will be participating in the Sunshine Tour tour school from 16 to 19 April at Benoni Country Club, with the hopes of earning his Sunshine Tour card. We stand behind you all the way Pieter!

Attending Tour School is an expense exercise. Should you wish to contribute to Pieter’s expenses, we invite you to assist:

Jeff and Pieter on the course this week

 A good laugh!!
St Francis Links (April Fool’s Day FUN) in case you missed it!
“In the interests of growing the game of golf and setting the trend in the sport, we are pioneering the concept of square golf holes at the Links. We believe that this is a worthwhile innovation to the game of golf and another reason to come to St Francis Links,” comments Jeff Clause, CEO of St Francis Links.

Recent research has shown that the margin for error on square holes is far less than on round holes. Our estimation is that members will be able to reduce their scores by at least four strokes per round.

“We will be championing this innovative approach to golf on our course from today,” says Jeff.

“It has been a challenge installing these holes but we are now all square,” comments Charl Blaauw, Course Superintendent, “cutting corners is the right angle for us now.”

Who’s taking home the green jacket?
The most prestigious golf event of the year is around the corner, and we’re hosting a fun little competition to get you pumped up for the Masters.

Who do you think will win the green jacket this year?

My pick is…

Practice with purpose
What skills could you improve today?
To add more value to your range sessions, choose a skill to be your primary focus for the day. It’s more valuable than ploughing through 100 balls with your driver and #5 iron. It gives your practice more purpose.
Is it hitting more shots on line?
Is it being able to hit fairway woods consistently off the deck?
Is it control of distance with your wedges?
Which part of your game most needs improving and will have the biggest impact on your enjoyment and scorecard?
We’re here to help you.
Let’s talk practice

Golf is a great game because it’s for all ages. It’s for all skill levels. It’s for men and women. The right equipment for your game changes your experience out on the golf course. If you’re an experienced golfer with a more moderate swing speed, please contact us to set up a XXI0 13 experience.

A game for all
What does it mean to be ‘a golfer’?
Do you only consider yourself ‘a golfer’ when you’re shooting under 85? Or when you’re driving the ball over 200 metres? Is the term ‘golfer’ reserved for men, while women are consigned to ‘lady golfer’? No, no and no. If you’re on a golf course swinging a club at a ball, you’re a golfer.
 Get them involved
You don’t need to be a certain age, gender or skill level to be a golfer. But you do need an opportunity to start playing. Someone to introduce you to the game. Could you be that someone? If you have a relative, friend or colleague who you think would enjoy being a golfer, why not gift them a lesson or bring them along to the course?
