Dear Member,

We encourage you to join us for the exciting events we have planned at our Club. This is always a great opportunity to socialise with new and old members, enjoy great food and entertainment!

This weekend we start off with "Christmas in July" on Saturday night in the Bistro. Who says we can only celebrate Christmas once a year! Chef Xanthos has created a delectable Christmas buffet. Once again it promises to be a very special evening. Please book your table with reception (031) 3131777

Tuesday 25th of July we have our popular Seniors' lunch. An opportunity for our seniors to invite their friends and enjoy the oh so favourable “bread and butter pudding”.

Sunday 30th of July the “Slow Meat Festival” is back at our Club for the 3rd year running. Ten of KZN's premier chefs will be collaborating to cook you a sumptuous feast. This unique outdoor event is held at Durban Country Club. You will receive 5 random selected tickets - each for a different plate, each prepared from 5 selected chefs. 1 ticket for an offal dish and dessert. Cash bar available. Tickets for this event are available via Quicket or the Zapper app.

Wednesday 16th of August we have our Quiz night - Get a team of 6 people together and join us for a fun filled night of general knowledge.

Change is always good, and therefore we are improving and revitalising our golf draw. The relaunch will be in September. Watch this space!

We are looking forward to your support for our Club events and we encourage you to share ideas with us for future events.

Have a great weekend.

MATT SAULEZ

MATT Saulez has returned from a trip to Ireland, France and Scotland with a realisation of what he needs to do to take his game to the next level.

The Durban Country Club player, who is based at the Tuks High Performance Centre in Pretoria has been selected for the South African Squad. This is a fantastic achievement and we at Durban Country Club are extremely proud to have Matt representing the club!

PRO SHOP SPECIAL:

JUNIOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP:

We would like to congratulate Chris Woollam, a matric student at Hilton College on winning the Junior Club Championships at Beachwood. The tournament was played over 18 holes in trying conditions and saw young Matthew Ackerman and Chris Woollam post scores of 77 to tie for first place. Chris ultimately won the championship in a sudden death playoff. Chris has established himself as one of the leading juniors in the country following his incredible performance at Humewood golf course recently where he shot rounds of 64 and 65 to win the Proudfoot Trophy.

It was also an outstanding performance from the 13 year old Matthew Ackerman, playing off a 9 handicap the 77 gross will give Matthew a huge boost in confidence and we look forward to watching his progress over the next few years.

10 POINTS ON 1 HOLE!

The 6th hole at Beachwood was the scene of one of the most unique occurrences in recent memory. During a round on Thursday, 6th July, members of the Divots Golf School, Alistair Forbes (left) and Gavin Gormley (right) shot a combined score of 10 points on one hole (Stroke 1, 6th Hole, Beachwood). Forbes hold out for eagle from the fairway with a 6 iron and Gormley, with a double stroke, made birdie, each player walking off with 5 points each. Well done!

Feedback from Mike: Kim's classes are great. A beautiful and inspiring setting, friendly atmosphere and the right mix of hard work and fun. Having participated for the past month, I have more energy and feel more flexible. I highly recommend these classes.
