The Farmers Agri-care Monthly Mug was played in conjunction with the SANLAM Cancer Challenge on Saturday 8 June 2019, the competitions were combined due to the long distances our members drive to play. The funds raised for the SANLAM Cancer Challenge goes towards cancer research and all the golfers entry fees had a R 75 contribution towards this research. Thank you to some local farmers and home owners that popped in to give donations.
The course is still green despite having had three frosts and the greens are fast. The fairway on the eighth is mending nicely, that’s the areas where the pine stumps were removed, and the fairway was wide-end as was the fairway on the sixth.
Both competitions played on Saturday, were played off the blue markers and compared to the white markers- it is a different course…..but still has a bite to it.
