On Saturday, avid golfers of Ermelo braved the muddled weather to fit in a day of excitement and camaraderie. The players made swift work of the holes, and breezed through the game in record time. The newly revamped clubhouse provided a welcome refuge from the elements, as players grabbed something to eat, whilst others quenched their thirst with a well-deserved beverage. The clubhouse is almost unrecognizable, but in a good way, with suave interior decorations and exquisite furniture, benches and tables.

The golf day was hosted in aid of the renovations to the bar, porch and lounge area of the club. Noeline Loubser from Ermelo Toyota, ladies members and other helpers have worked hard for the past 2 months, and further plan to undergo a transformation of the said part of the club building. Taking part in the event were 27 four-ballers (108 players) lined up to take part in the “4 Ball American Scramble” competition that was presented to celebrate the commissioning of the new facilities. The results of the day’s competition are as follows: 1 - Colin Odendaal, Christian Odendaal, Frikkie Odendaal and Stefan Pelser with 52 points net, 2 - Herman Swart, Niel Clifford, Fred Els and Bossie Bosman with 53 net counts, 3 - James Nkonde, Patrick Thomo, Charles Magagula and David Mashinini with 53 net counts, 4 - Marelize Potgieter, Annecke Fourie, Janice Swanepoel and Karen Cilliers with 55 points, 5 - Derek Fick, Johan Pie-naar, Phillip Steyn and André Steyn with 55 points , and 6 - Tollie Schoeman, Dirk Koch, Pierre Steyn, and Zach Smit only scored 55 points.
