A Tribute to Rodney Falkson by Stuart Bouwer
It was with deep sorrow that we heard of the passing of Rodney Falkson on the 9th August 2019.

Rodney was a true sportsman who loved outdoor sport. He was a wonderful cricketer, golfer, and bowler. His integrity and loyalty always shone through.

He joined Zwartkop 51 years ago and remained a member until his passing. He was a member of the Nomads Golf Club for over 40 years and must be of one of a few golfers who had a 400 game badge. He was also a member of the 21 club for over 30 years.

There can be no doubt of his love and passion for the game of golf. With his friends and fellow golfers, he enjoyed his Saturday golf at Zwartkop and went on many local and overseas tours.

We send our condolences to his wife Dorienne, his son’s and grandchildren.We are going to miss you Rod. Rest in peace.
The funeral service will be held at 12h00 on Wed, 14th Aug at St Francis Church, 387 Albert St in Waterkloof.

We had some incredible feats by members over the weekend…


Johan du Plooy had his first ever hole-in-one on the 7th Hole on Friday. As it was in an official competition and witnessed by at least three players, he also bagged a Dream Vacations holiday prize valued at R25,000! Well done Johan!

Best Round

Congrats to Dody Leijenaar who played her best round in years on Friday. She scored 40 points. Even her caddy said to her; “you must be having a good day because you have not said once that you are giving up”.

Biggest Blooper…

A feat that wasn’t incredible – in fact one that would have been rather regrettable, was Jacques van Schalkwyk, who fell into the river on Thursday… Check out this video Dale did with him after his round.

Talking about the river

Our staff have been incredibly busy and have collected over 500 – yes 500 – refuse bags full of rubbish out of the river over the last week - and that is only between the 4th green and 8th greens! We have put a lot of effort and staff into the clean-up and while the progress is dis-heartening and never-ending, we hope you notice the difference.

From Jannie Coetzee, President of the Lions Club of Centurion Lifestyle

Zwartkop is home to the Lions Club of Centurion Lifestyle (LCCL).
It is where we meet socially, and also hold our monthly meetings (7pm every 3rd Monday of the month). The Club gives us free use of the facilities and along with its members, contribute generously towards our ongoing fundraising efforts.

The Lions Clubs put all funds raised from the public back into the local community and all annual administrative expenses are paid by the members themselves.

During the past few months, we have built water troughs and erected information boards at the Bishop Bird Park in Rooihuiskraal. At Club 21, a non-profit learning centre which specialises in the education and development of children with Down Syndrome in Doringkloof, we have built walls, relocated fences and cleared space within their property to create a secure playground for the learners. We recently held a fun “Christmas in July” lunch party at Irene Homes, an NPO facility looking after intellectually challenged women.

Many thanks to you all for making it possible to serve the needs of our Centurion community better.

Contact Jannie at if you are interested in joining them.
 A Certificate of Appreciation from the Centurion Lifestyle Lions Club was handed to Dale in recognition of his ongoing contributions in support of the Lions Club and the Centurion community.

Jokers Wild Draw

Congrats to John Ellis, who won Friday’s Jokers Wild draw. He took home R1 364, but couldn’t find the Jokers card so the draw now stands at R30 265. It will be exciting to see what will be up for grabs when it comes for the draw on Friday!

Pop down for drink on Friday afternoon for a lively night of live music, and the draw will commence at 18h30. We have a Gin Special on offer all month – 2 Beefeater Gins & 2 Tonics for R60.

Members Saturday Jackpot…

Join in the fun! One par three will be allocated as the “jackpot” hole every Saturday.
Members pay R20 to enter and any golfer that makes a two on that hole will share in 60% of the pot. If there are no two’s then the pot will be carried over to the next week.

Every week, 20% of the pot will go towards a member that gets a hole-in-one on the jackpot hole. This will be carried over until a member achieves a perfect fluke on the jackpot hole. The other 20% goes to the Club.

A member, as mentioned above, is anyone who plays on that given Saturday – including corporates and guests of members.
