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
