Golf News

Greetings all golfers,

The captains input this week is all about food. I have challenged Xanthos, our head chef, to show us what he and his team are capable of. He has responded by opening up the "The Grill Room" on Saturday 12 of August 2017 turning back time for an evening of fine dining.

Seats are restricted to 80 dinners (bookings done at reception) Cost is R300-00 per person and payment plus confirmation of your meal choice must be finalised no later than 2pm on Wed 9 August.

The menu below brings back some very good memories of this special place. Look forward to seeing everyone dressed to impress.

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.
