The Kranskop Farmers Association’s nine hole competition drew a “mix veggie pack” of golfers. There were the farmers from the area, their sons, contractors and social golfers. The competition was held over nine holes, giving those making hay while the sun shines and those planting their maize time to get the last seeds into the ground.
The format was Medal – American scramble and golfers with no official handicaps were given a handicap and they played off the blue course. The handicapped golfers played off the white course.

While the men played golf the Ladies of the district enjoyed their sponsored “Annie Sloan chalk paint workshop” held by Ingrid Lens from Palette. Not only did the ladies have fun painting and learning new techniques – we also has a happy afternoon chatting and catching up with each other. A very big thank you to our generous sponsor and to Lorraine for all her hard work and organising. After prize-giving everyone enjoyed an early supper and the Kranskop Farmers association’s last function for 2018.
