South Coast Region Golf Day

The first annual South Coast Master Builders Golf day was played at the Port Shepstone Country Club on 24 April 2009. Perfect weather and excellent course conditions contributed towards a fun filled day that saw 92 players take to the fairways. Much to the delight of players and organizers, the event was a resounding success.

The Competition format was played on a Four Ball alliance scramble drive, two scores two count, with the three winning teams having consisted of:
  • First: John Beekman; Neels Nortje; Hans Stols and Hans Stols jnr.
  • Second: Phil Myburgh; H. Hodgson; Gordon Dickson and R Matko
  • Third: Benny Pillay; George Raman; Yzette Greyling and Debi Stuward
The Master Builders Association team actually winning, was totally unexpected and was in no way part of the planning. Nonetheless, the gauntlet has been tossed and we now challenge our members, to bring us down a notch next year.

The prize giving was presented by Ian Steward who did an excellent job in the absence of Ray Basson, Ray was unable to attend due to the illness of his wife. All teams, regardless of placing received prizes worth a combined value of R30 000.00. A sliding door donated by Builders Trade Depot was also auctioned off and a total amount of R3400.00 was raised for charity. The cheque will be handed out at our AGM on 14 May 2009.

I would like to give credit and thanks to all our sponsors who put in a tremendous amount of hard work supplying refreshments at most of the holes. Their contribution helped create an excellent atmosphere and added color to the day. The catering was done by Sally from Port Shepstone Country Club and the spitbraai supplied by Michael Fray’s; was magnificent and most delightful after a long day of golf. The support we received was absolutely superb and we look forward to growing the competition into an annual event not to be missed.
