Age is only a number!
St Francis Links resident Wendy Rosser has excelled in swimming at the SA Masters held recently in Cape Town.
She qualified for her SA Colours, with her time within the top ten in the world. Wendy swam and won the 50 metres freestyle and 100 metres freestyle, as well as the 50 backstrokes and 100 backstrokes. And she trained in our Links pool and Liquid Lines! What an achievement Wendy! Congratulations!
Tillie and Manie Maritz can be very proud parents
Wesley and Mandi Augustyn entered the Absa Cape Epic 2022 as a pure milestone and bucket list to finish the grueling race for its untamed nature. It is known as the hardest MTB stage race in the world, consisting of 8 days and 700km with 16 000 meters of climbing.
Mandi started cycling in lockdown 2020 and started to fall in love with the sport, being a world champion athlete in her previous sport, Mandi caught onto the cycling and the competitiveness kicked in.
Wesley is from a cycling family and whose brother has done stage races around the world, including Tour De France, Olympics, Giro D’Italia, being some of the races John-Lee Augustyn competed in. Wesley raced downhill from a young age and has competed in multiple world championships. The combination of the brother was a good starting point for Mandi to learn from, John-Lee being a good coach and Wesley assisting Mandi with the skills needed to compete at a high level.
Taking a slow approach in the Absa Cape Epic paid off, taking the first 4 days easy and started to apply the pressure from stage 4. This led to the wife and husband combination coming second overall in the mixed team category, dominating and winning the last 4 stages.
He said, She said!

Trust all is well in the Eastern Cape.
It’s hard to think that 1 week has passed since we were on our annual tour. On behalf of the Par2Bar guys, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for arranging the courses together with the golf tee times. More importantly, our team truly values the hospitality shown to us from the time we got to the course by having our logo, names and tee times displayed. The highlight was seeing the welcome sign at the pro shop and then walking into the locker facility and having our names assigned to the lockers. We felt truly special.
We rate this as one of our best-golfing trips thus far, above having played all 3 courses at Fancourt. The hospitality was just impeccable and left us chatting over a few whiskeys in the evening.
Once again, many thanks to you and the staff at St Francis Links and we look forward to coming back in the future.
