A fourball watched, intrigued, as a lone player played up short of the green they were on. As they teed off on the next they noticed him quickly chip on and putt out, before running up to their tee. Sensing their bewilderment, he said, “Sorry, do you mind if I play through – I’ve just heard that my wife has had a terrible accident and may not make it!”
Hollow Tining Month
Hollow tining has once again been completed with great success. Hugo vd Berg (Head Green keeper) & Matthew Crystal (assistant green keeper) have been hard at work from 18 – 22 January giving our beloved greens just what they need to continue providing a perfect surface. The burn marks the green suffered during Christmas season are recovering well and should be closed with the recovery of the hollow tining process.
You will also see that the small details on the course like open cut cart paths, golf course gardens and edging, in general, are right back up to top-class standard. Woodhill Country Club 2021 – 2022 membership has been completed and will be available on the website in February. Be sure to look out for your golf membership invoice due to arrive soon. Please inform the club if there are any changes you would like to your membership package.
Government together with GolfRSA have also launched an assistance project for club caddies and golf casual workers. Woodhill applied, as this would be of great assistance supporting caddies during COVID-19. The payment to each caddie and casual golf worker will take place four times, over the next four months. It’s great to know that our caddies are looked after with much-needed support.
The interclub agreement between Woodhill, Silver lakes, Centurion & Ebotse is still active and I would like to encourage members to make use of this privilege if ever you struggle to find a spot on the Woodhill tee sheet. Enquire at the Pro shop for assistance with bookings.
