The annual Pam Golding Ladies Golf Open was played last Thursday and Friday, with Day 1 at St Francis Links and Day 2 at St Francis Bay Golf Club.

Pam Golding has been the sponsor since the event’s inception in 2006, acknowledging that ladies are the prime decision-makers for most residential property transactions!

The Day 1 video features the ladies from clubs all over the Eastern Cape in the clubhouse chatting over coffee before the 11 am shotgun start (with the Pam Golding video on the TVs), Jeff Clause giving the briefing outside before they all drove off in their carts to their “shotgun” start tee. Then Pam Golding Properties – St Francis Bay St Francis Links Specialist Saria Blaauw and cameraman Richard Arderne drove a golf cart to watch a few fine golf shots (and some not so fine) on the 10th, 16th and 17th holes.

The Day 2 video is of the prize-giving on Friday afternoon, with Jeff Clause introducing Saria Blaauw, who spoke about the property market, particularly on the Links. Then Noelle Pearson read out the winners, with Saria handing over the prizes.

Both Carol Sharman (left) and Lynda Mynhardt (right) from the Links were the winners. Well done, Carol and Lynda!


Unfortunately, no one drove away in the brand new Dirk Ellis Volkswagen Polo for a hole-in-one. There were a few close attempts, but no one was the winner.
