On Sunday a great field of 40 players were back on the course for a quick 5-hole scramble competition with some wives, partners etc. joining in the fun.
This was followed by a good game of rugby between the Bokke and Japan and great potjies prepared by Wikus Jooste and a few fellow cooks. Definitely a great initiative to be repeated soon.
This coming Sunday we will skip the golf but have enough wood and fires for a bring and braai to watch the Boks smash Wales.
Saturday is the second last PISCES & Fox Designs Monthly Medal with the final scheduled for 9 November.
Members are reminded that there will be a braai on Sunday for those watching rugby at the club.
