The annual Rotary golf day Betterball competition at the St Francis Bay Golf Club on 27 April fielded over 90 players and raised over R50 000 for Rotary educational projects in Sea Vista. Our grateful thanks to our title sponsors SBS (Specialised Broker Services) and Discovery Insure who were amazingly supportive. We hope this is the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial relationship!
Thanks too for the wonderful support we received from all the hole sponsors and prize donors which included a generous contribution from last year’s title sponsor Makro Port Elizabeth. There were some truly fabulous prizes available and plenty of fun spot prizes to add to the fun including a lucky draw for a weekend away drawn by the great team from SBS.
Scored first on the day were Clive de Witt and Hein Nauhaus, with Rob Andrews and Neil Jones second and Tim Seaman and Dave Truter third.
Congratulations also go to the lucky winners of the raffle which ran alongside the competition. Mrs Lauren Stewart won an amazing 2 nights B&B at the lovely Zuurberg Mountain Village with a 4 course Sunday lunch for two. Ken McGreggor was drawn second for the weekend B&B at Die Tuishuisie and Victorian Manor in Craddock with Ash Sodha taking third prize for the 4 course Sunday lunch for 2 at Zuurberg Mountain Village.
A final thank you must go the wonderful staff at St Francis Bay Golf Club for their hard work and support. This was a particularly special day as it was the last charity golf day at the club under the management of Janine van der Merwe who leaves the club on 30 April. Thank you very much Janine for your support and assistance over the years! And best of luck to Justin Roux who will be taking over the reigns.
