  The Club


Dear Member,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Gerryt Bosman joining us as the new F&B Manager.

Gerryt studied Hotel Management at the International Hotel School and has worked as Food & Beverage Manager, Banqueting Manager and General Manager in various hotels, lodges and golf courses for the last 19 years - Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton Towers and Sandton Sun, Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club, Palazzo Hotel, Avianto and also worked in the UK for 2 years.


 Gerryt loves the outdoors and enjoys playing golf, hunting, hiking and a good braai. He looks forward to making a difference and improving an already great product and hopes to have many happy years at Randpark Club. Please take the time to introduce yourself to Gerryt.

We are delighted to let our members know that the chipping green will be re-opening tomorrow. We want to thank you for your patience and cooperation during the growing-in period.

Did you know that both our AM & PM Joker Draws are now valued over
R11 000 each! Money raised through this initiative goes towards the Captain’s Fund which is used to assist various charities. Please support this project! The cards are reducing weekly and the odds are improving!

Our accounts team will be sending out a payment link for our annual paying members who still have an outstanding balance due – please keep an eye out for this communication.

Betterball Knockout this weekend, Rikert and I are taking on Selwyn Freese and Johannes Stoltz - hope you are bringing your A game gents!

See you all Saturday!

Happy golfing
Albert

Temperatures have dropped quickly and we can’t be far off the first signs of frost.  With this, the grass has just about stopped growing and recovery has slowed down completely.  The tees, especially par 3s and the smaller ones on Bushwillow struggle to handle the traffic with the limited growth.  We are also protecting the tee positions that will be used during Club Champs.

The courses have dried out well, generally, but the bad areas have not improved, the ground water table does not seem to be dropping. We have made good progress finding and clearing old drains on Bushwillow and they are running strongly on the 17th.  On Firethorn we have deepened the drain on the 2nd hole and will be moving to the 14th.

We have also moved some pipe work on the 10th bridge on Firethorn.  We have a pump in the river that fills the large storage dam on the 11th hole.  With the continuous flooding the pump gets damaged and also picks up debris like clothing that washes down the river causing expensive repairs.  By moving the pump to the other side of the river it will be protected and a lot more reliable.


The leaves on Bushwillow are never ending and it sometimes feels like we are getting nowhere, the pin oaks are the major culprits with the smallest wind undoing hours of work.  The good news is our little dung beetle leaf collector is working brilliantly, although it is very small.  The small size does allow it to get under trees and it also causes less wear to the grass.  The big advantage is that the leaves are being collected and not simply blown around so once all the leaves have fallen we will be able to clear the problem completely.


Congratulations to our very own Stefan Jacobs who is the 2022 Nedbank Junior Challenge Champion. He won by 3 shots on a score of 3-under-par 213 with rounds of 70, 73 and 70 at the Gary Player Country Club.

Stefan has also moved to 2nd position in the GolfRSA Junior U19 Rankings!

  Marshals out on the Courses

We all know that one of the most difficult things to do on the course is to marshal. Our marshals on both courses have been very well trained to ensure we deliver the best experience to our members and guests each and every day. In general, we will always have a marshal on each course from the start of play during our peak times. They will monitor the pace of play and will inform the marshals at Halfway House (one per course as well) at all times with regards to slow play.

We kindly request all members to please respect the marshals, they are there to assist players on the field and to ensure we keep a good pace of play during the rounds. If a marshal does approach you please adhere to the warning and make up for the lost time, remember it’s the responsibility of the player to keep up with the pace of play.

Weekly Club Competition Schedule



GETS Golf starts a deep dive into Trackman's different data points.



Personal training is something you hear about all the time, either as a marketing tool or concept. Utilising big words like hypertrophy, progressive periodisation plan, sports conditioning specialists, etc. might confuse you at times.

The bottom line is we are here to help you. At Powerblast Training we believe that training has to be personal, specific to each person. We try to form a professional relationship with each and every client. We do not have a ‘one size fits all’ approach as many other commercial gyms and personal trainers may have. We take everything about you into account. We work tirelessly to form and utilise those confusing concepts to make them understandable and effective for your training and fitness journey. We make them personal to you.

Come through and have a chat or contact us for more details. Powerblast Training. Personal Training. Right here in the Health and Wellness Centre at Randpark Club.
