The Misty Ridge Contracting St Cathryn’s classic was played on Saturday 22 June 2024. All golfers competed for the JS Nel (Pty) Ltd floating trophy, that has been in the club since 1993. The trophy originally was presented to the darts players at the Kranskop Hotel, and when the hotel was sold Mrs Daleen Nel donated the trophy to St Cathryn’s G C.

The Shot gun starts at 07h30 and then 11h30, on the shortest day of the year, or the longest night, made the swop between morning and afternoon fields, a quick juggle, as carts used in the morning had to be used in the afternoon.

The field was 75% subscribed , with the start of the school holidays our members were stretched between Underburg, Germany and Salt Rock. (These are normally the big guns in the club)

The greatest excitement of the day was when Craig van der Merwe got the most perfect shot in golf when he recorded a one on his scorecard on hole two, the short par three. ( A HOLE IN ONE).

The eight and seventeenth also claimed a scalp when newly handicapped St Cathryn’s member, Mark Reeksting, birdied the 8th hole, his first birdie ever on any hole, when he sank a thirteen meter putt. His “punishment” for his birdie on that hole, a dip in the dam the brrrrr the water was cold, and a double Old Brown Sherry returned his body temp to normal.
