Eulogy for Mr David Ward:

David Ward passed away on 5 Sept 2017 in Hillcrest, after a battle with cancer. He was a loyal member of DCC for over 20 years, and loved playing his regular Wednesday round, as well as with the Seniors on Sundays in his later years. He met great friends through the club and always talked of it fondly. David leaves his wife Gayle and sons Gregory and Jonathan. A funeral service will be held on Monday 11th Sept at 11am, at St Agnes Church in Kloof.

Kinds regards
Jonathan

Chefs Corner

Congratulations!!!!! 2nd runner up in the National Unilever Chef of the year competitions.

Some like it HOT!

The Durban Country Club Team of 4

Led by Executive Chef Xanthos Giannakopoulos, with Executive Sous Chef Sandesh Needhi and Sous Chef Lezelle Janse van Rensburg getting hands on in the kitchen, the Durban Country Club Team of 4 packs some serious firepower. With DCC Restaurant Manager Fayaaz Khan out front, they’ll definitely be turning up the heat come service time too!

We asked the Durban Country Club Team to describe each other:

Xanthos. “He’s loud and passionate. A great leader who motivates the team and is not afraid to get his hands dirty. He also stands behind the team always empowering his juniors.”
Sandesh. “He’s cool, calm & collected but Do not shake the beehive!!!”
Lezelle. “We all know her as Bokkie! She is the Beehive, also fun loving, reliable and a great all-rounder.”
Fayaaz. “He’s the Beehive shaker! Passionate, service driven, knowledgeable, always respecting assisting the chefs.”

Hi, I am Kim Jackson and my passion is fitness, health and wellness. I love helping people to achieve their personal fitness goals, no matter how large or small. Participating and helping many others participate in some major sporting events, has been a very satisfying part of my life. Over the years, I have completed:

10 Two Ocean Ultra Marathons
22 Comrades Marathons
The 100 miler Washie Marathon 160km, completed recently ...phew!
Trail Runs such as the Sani Stagger, Lesotho Ultra Sky Run, Rhodes, Mont-aux-Sources and White Clay
Countless marathons , including the London Marathon this year
3 Full Ironman triathlons - 3.8km swim, a 180km ride followed by a 42km marathon
A number of half ironman triathlons
7 Individual Triple Challenges which included a 21km trail run to Cato Ridge, a MTB ride down to Inanda Dam and a 22km paddle on the dam with portages. All good fun in those days.
A number of Midmar Miles
2 Dusi canoe marathons
2 Non-stop dusi canoe marathons
7 Fish River canoe marathons
The Argus bike race in Cape Town, Amashova, Tour de Durban and others
