Dear Member,

We would also like to thank Dawid Wandrag and DeBuys Scott for their tremendous contribution to the Finance Committee during a difficult time for the Club.

CMASA Conference 2021

Randpark is very excited to host the annual CMASA Conference for 2021. Over 100 CEOs, General Managers, Directors and managers will be joining us over the next two days. A big thank you to our team for all their hard work to get everything ready. Well done everyone.


25 – 28 November 2021

1. Joburg Open Ticket Procedures – 200 Joburg Open tickets are available per day to golfing members for the tournament (25th – 28th November 2021). Please collect your tickets in person from reception at the Club between the 17th and 19th November (08h00 to 17h00). Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis; only two tickets per golfing member in good standing.
Members must produce their vaccination certificate when collecting their tickets, and need to ensure all parties using the tickets are fully-vaccinated.
No telephonic or email ticket reservations will be accepted, and members cannot collect on behalf of other members.
When utilising the tickets at the Joburg Open, you will be asked to provide your ticket, ID and vaccination certificate at the gate. Please ensure you have these documents on hand to avoid the City of Joburg denying you access.
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.
2. 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 November until the 21st 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.
3. 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.
4. Please click here for more information on reciprocity.
5. 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.
6. NO CARTS will be allowed on Firethorn from today until the Joburg Open. We remind members to please book on Bushwillow if you want to make use of a golf cart during this week.
Our booking ladies will try their best to ensure that if you do require a cart during this time that you are moved to Bushwillow, but as we are all aware tee off times are limited.
7. Marshalls for Joburg Open – we are still looking for members to assist with marshalling during the tournament. The list is up at reception. 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.
8. Pro Shop closure – please note the Pro Shop will be closed from Thursday, the 18th of 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.
9. The Driving Range will close on Sunday, the 21st November at 16h00 – the last bucket will be sold at 16h00.
10. We will also host a Play it like a Pros 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.
11. After the Joburg Open we will be hosting the Fidelity Golf Day on Tuesday, the 30th November – BOTH COURSES WILL BE CLOSED.
12. 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.
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.



We had another great weekend of golf. Unfortunately, the International Day was called off due to the lightning siren going off at 13h30. It delayed the field by approximately 1h15m, and by that time, it was too late to continue with the event. It was still very well-supported, and we would like to thank all the teams that entered this year. Hopefully next year we will be able to get a result.

 Representing Team Seychelles were Irene Farr, Les Rule, Eugenie Clack, Sheryl Matthews & Elize de Wet


And it all got a bit too much for the Mexican Team!

During this time of the year, we normally have late afternoon storms, and we would like to remind our members to please take extra care in case of lightning. If you hear the warning siren (30 second siren,) the competition will be suspended immediately. The manager/committee member on duty will analyse the weather pattern and will determine the outcome of the competition. Players that continue to play will not be eligible to compete in the competition.
