February Newsletter 2024

We hope this finds you well and enjoying the summer season. February has been a month of fun and excitement on the greens, and we’re delighted to share some highlights and news with you. Here’s what’s been happening at our wonderful club.















Car Wash

We’re excited to announce that starting from the 1st of March, there will be a car wash service at the club. You can have your car cleaned and polished while you enjoy your game. No need to book in advance, just drop off your keys at the container office and they'll take care of the rest. This service is available to all members and guests, so treat yourself and your car to a sparkling makeover.




Course Improvements

We’re continuing our efforts to provide you with the best golfing experience possible. Our grounds team has been busy with overall housekeeping and repairs to the water supply we receive from Homevale, as well as the spraying of chemicals for the intruding thorns taking root on the 16th, 17th and 18th fairway. We will keep you updated with the progress thereof.
