The Club

Dear Member,

A big thank you to all those members that took part in the Halfway House Survey. The results will be available in next Thursday’s newsletter. Congratulations to Bill Bowen, the lucky winner of a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black.

Please contact us should you not have received anything as yet or need more information.

Happy golfing,

A total of 81mm has fallen since last week Friday and most of it in heavy downpours.  This caused flooding of the rivers and washed the bunker sand off the faces on 3 separate days. The clean-up required takes up a huge amount of man hours and is especially frustrating when the team has completed repairing the bunkers, only to have the work washed away the following day.  On Monday, the river rose especially high and has damaged gabion infrastructure on the 8th on Firethorn and caused more erosion on the 1st riverbank.  The river flooded all the bridges and even crossed the 1st fairway on Firethorn leaving tons of debris behind.  The teams have cleared most of the debris, but work is still ongoing along the banks.




The courses are extremely wet, and this has made mowing difficult, especially the low-lying clay areas.  Carts are still being allowed but drivers need to be careful and avoid wet muddy areas.

The garden clean-up is continuing with the team busy at Bushwillow 15th, we have also cleared the vegetation along the 7th river on Firethorn.



Saturday AM Fields
Rotational Booking System

After the meeting we had with our schools and members we are in the process of finalising the new booking system. We would like to thank all our members for their feedback and once all the details have been finalised we will update everybody.

General Course Care

A lot of concerns have been raised by members regarding the general course care. The three biggest concerns still remain the bunkers, pitch marks and the divots on the fairways. As we have mentioned on numerous occasions, the course care whilst playing is the responsibility of the players. The course staff will try their best, even after a big storm, to present the courses in the best playing condition for our members and guests. We would like to encourage members to assist us in this regard:
  • Rake the bunkers.
  • Repair your pitch mark and two others.
  • Fill your divot with the sand provided.
  • Please be mindful of the wet areas when driving a golf cart.
  • Do not litter and dispose of your cigarette butts in the dustbins on the courses.

Online Booking Platform

Please be advised that our hosting provider will be performing server maintenance on Friday, the 4th of March between 4am and 5.30am. The website booking platform and Randpark App will be inaccessible during this period. We thank you for your understanding as we work with our hosting provider to enhance ClubHouse Online.

Well Done & Congratulations to
All Our Winners

Jock’s up there
With Bernhard Langer!
(Written by Randpark’s Grant Winter)

Question: What do Bernhard Langer, Sunshine Tour Executive Director Selwyn Nathan and Randpark’s own Jock Wellington have in common.

Answer: They all equalled their age in February. The 64-year-old German birdie machine shot an absolutely fabulous 64 on his way to winning the Chubb Classic on the PGA Champions Tour, 71-year-old Nathan posted a 71 (and then beat his age with a 69) at Fancourt during the week of the Dimension Data Pro-Am, and sweet-swinging 71-year-old Wellington carded a second-round 71 in the Central Gauteng Senior Open at Modderfontein, before matching that number here at Randpark on Firethorn.
