Well Done And Goodbye To Mark:
Well done to Mark Warrener from the DCC Pro Shop on winning his Club Championship A Division Strokeplay at Bluff National Park Golf Club this past weekend! We also sadly say goodbye to Mark this month as he starts his new position at Bluff Golf Club where he will be running Golf Operations from July 2017.
We wish him all the best and thank him for his time spent at DCC over the past 3 years!
Don’t forget - this Friday (23 June) is the DCC Putting Competition. Starting from 16h15. Callaway and Taylormade will be there to demo their new arrivals.
There will be a prize giving afterwards as well as specials in the bar followed by the Golf Trust Draw.
2017 David Suddards Trophy:
The 2017 David Suddards Trophy was played for the 12th time at Durban Country Club this past weekend. A 36 Hole event that saw some of Kwa-Zulu Natals best amateur golfers battle for the trophy. After 18 holes it was tight on top of the leaderboard with 2 golfers shooting round of 66 (6 under par) Malcolm Mitchell from Kloof CC and Jason Broomhead from Durban CC, with 4 players chasing only a few shots behind them. The afternoon conditions were slightly tougher which saw the top 2 players shoot rounds of 71 for Malcolm and 73 for Jason.
This was however enough for Malcolm Mitchell to finish top of the leaderboard with a total 7 under par (137) to win the 2017 David Suddards Trophy.
It was good great to see the young talent of golfers in KZN at the moment. A full leaderboard can be found on the KZN Golf Union website.
Well done Malcolm!

Passing of Arthur Mooney
It is with great regret and sadness that, following a brief illness, we announce the passing in June of a long-standing member of the Durban Country Club, Arthur Mooney.
As a result of his advanced age Arthur had not visited the Durban Country Club for some time, however during his more active years through the 1960's and 70's he was an energetic and very well-liked member here.
An avid golfer, Arthur was frequently found traversing the green links at the weekend enjoying the company of his friends and fellow members. His distinctive, guttural laugh could be heard booming out not only on the golf-course but also on the tennis courts as well and, not infrequently, at the bar.
Some of his happiest moments were enjoyed here in the welcoming surrounds of the Club amongst some of his closest and dearest friends. Enjoying a day at the Club and sharing in the camaraderie to be found here was one of Arthur's greatest pleasures. Some of Arthur's friends have also sadly passed on now, but to those who remain at the club he would have wanted to have bade you all a warm and fond farewell and thanked you for having made his memories here so very warm and happy.
Goodbye Arthur, we all wish you good fortune on the great links in the sky.
