Sadly the government has still not announced the date and rules. We apologize for being too proactive in our approach.

CHAIRMAN'S COLUMN Dear Members, We are now in what are extraordinary times for our nation and the world at large, following the outbreak and spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. President Cyril Ramaphosa’s initial decision to implement a nationwide lockdown, was a decisive and necessary move to stop the spread of the virus.

Dear Members, We can be extremely proud to have such a beautiful Club – our gardens are looking pristine, each sporting section is growing and attracting new members. Our Bowlers have been very successful with hosting their open day and twilight evenings to encourage the younger members.

The general downturn in the SA economy is reflected in our turnover and member spend per head to date. We are doing as much as we can to encourage
