Ivan Kamte and Heather Krüger – with Club Captain, Richard Vauqulin and Ladies Captain, Dawn Speirs.

The paddlers in the SA Canoe Marathon Championship were not the only sportsmen and women who had to battle the wind and rain (what rain someone asked, just a few drops was all we had).

The St. Francis Bay Golf Club (SFBGC) 2018 Club Championships took place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June in contrasting weather conditions. On Saturday the players teed off in a gale force wind but fortunately Sunday delivered beautiful golf weather that ensured excellent scoring conditions.

The field consisted mostly of local golfers, but we also had the pleasure of having players from Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth.
Thanks to Janine van der Merwe and her management team as well as the two Captains, Richard Vauqulin and Dawn Speirs for the smooth organisation, Gordon Dennett and his grounds team for outstanding course conditions, Jani and Frank Ellis for keeping up the energy level with tasty food and the bar staff for quenching the players thirst.
