Dear Member,

The Club

I would like to thank the committee and members of Randpark Club for the opportunity to lead this amazing team during the transition period, while we are in search of our new General Manager. I am very excited for what the future holds for Randpark Club, and know it will be great! Please do not hesitate to contact me for any information you might need, or just to say hello.

We have a very busy four weeks coming up, with the CMASA Conference, various golf days and functions, as well as the Joburg Open load-in, which will start from today. Please keep an eye out for all the communication we will be sharing, as more information becomes available.

Happy golfing,
Albert

We always encourage communication between our members and the Club. If you have any comments or questions, please don’t hesitate to either contact our Acting General Manager, Albert Clack at clubops@randpark.co.za or our Club Captain, Arthur Heinrich at captainslog@randpark.co.za.


1.  We understand the impact the preparation and the tournament have on members, which is why we have gone above and beyond to look after you the week before and the week of the tournament. Please note that Firethorn will now only close after the morning field on Saturday, the 20th November and will remain closed until Sunday, the 28th November. Bushwillow will be open from the 18th of November until the 21st of November, and it will be for members only. We will not be able to book all members on the Saturday or Sunday, so please try and arrange to play the Thursday or Friday, if you are flexible and can assist the Club and other members by playing on another day.
2. Last year, we offered a special arrangement for the week, where the Club paid for one (1) complimentary game for all, paid-up members, with unlimited tickets at selected peer clubs during the tournament week. We are extending the same offer this year. The Club will once again pay for one (1) complimentary game for all, paid-up members, with unlimited tickets.
3. Please click here for more information on reciprocity.
4. It is important to note that the Club will book tee times for members, at one of the agreed clubs, subject to availability for a weekday or weekend round. Only green fees will be covered. Any additional costs like carts, halfway, etc. will be for your own account.
5. As we communicated in Monday’s newsletter, NO CARTS will be allowed on Firethorn from Monday, 15th November until after the Joburg Open. Our booking ladies will try their best to ensure that if you do require a cart during this time, you are moved to Bushwillow, but as we are all aware, tee-off times are limited.
6. Marshalls for Joburg Open – we are still looking for members to assist with marshalling during the tournament. The list is up at reception, and if you would like to volunteer, please add your name to the list. Please note that we will only be using 20 marshals per day. For any additional information, you can contact Rikert on golf@randpark.co.za.
7. Pro Shop closure – please note the Pro Shop will be closed from Thursday, 18th November. Check-ins and Pro Shop services (limited stock) will be moved to the Kiddies Play area up in the member’s bar. Bax and Greg will pre-check in all players before their round. All carts need to be settled before proceeding to the cart pick-up point.
8. The Driving Range will close on Sunday, the 21st November at 16h00 – the last bucket will be sold at 16h00.
9. We will also host a Play it like a Pro Competition on the Monday, post the tournament, if the tournament finished the Sunday. As before, members will have first option to play on Firethorn, on the 29th November. Bushwillow will be open for social play.
10. Obviously, we know that there are still restrictions on spectators and how this tournament will be run, due to the Covid-19 regulations. First and foremost, there will be 2000 spectators allowed during the tournament. The Club will receive a member allocation of tickets per day, and these will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis when available. There will be no members or spectators allowed in the clubhouse, as the restrictions limiting the number of people in the clubhouse to 750 makes it very difficult, given the fact that we must accommodate the players, caddies, all officials, together with the European Tour, Sunshine Tour, media and TV crew.
11. There will be a lot of traffic around the course and construction taking place over the next couple of weeks. We apologise for the noise levels around these areas. In the event of the contractors interfering with play, please make it known that you wish to play by whistling or shouting “Fore”, so that they are aware that you want to play. We are trying to limit their presence on the course as much as possible, but your cooperation would be appreciated.
12. We will keep members informed as more information become available. In the meantime:
13. We ask that all players appreciate the significance of this event, and show the necessary consideration to the below requests:
• Cart users to please drive on the fairway as much as possible and not in the rough. From approximately 20m from the green, we ask that you proceed directly to the cart path, park your golf carts on the path, and walk to the green to finish the hole.
• We want to keep our courses clean, please don’t litter or flick cigarette butts into bunkers or around the green.
• Pitch marks on the greens do influence the smoothness of the greens, so we kindly ask that you repair your pitch marks, even if it is just a small dent from a shorter approach.
• Divot repairs are quite scarce in these modern times, but we ask that you do make use of your sandbag to fill your divots in the fairway. It drastically speeds up recovery of that damaged area.
• Please don’t forget to rake the bunkers, as this is probably the biggest challenge we are facing at the moment.

After a week of stable electricity supply (apart from loadshedding), a functional pump house and 46mm of rain, things are looking a lot better on the courses, especially Bushwillow.

Our main focus has been on the Firethorn course in preparation for the Joburg Open. Old tree stumps that were ground away have been patched, as well as a few worn out areas. There is also a team clearing litter from the rivers after the heavy rain on Sunday night. Low branches are being trimmed, and we are spraying our final fertiliser applications on the fairways and tees. New bollards are being installed to minimise the negative effect of golf carts in the prime playing areas.

On Bushwillow, we have also been patching worn areas with the grass that was removed from the new cart path from the 5th green to the 6th tee, which is currently under construction.
