Dear Member,

The Club

It was a bit of a shock to me, and it might be to you as well. We only have 72 days until Christmas! What happened to 2021? It was certainly another year of ups and downs, as we head towards 20 months of the country being in a state of disaster. I am sure we can all use a break from this rollercoaster ride.

We are still holding onto some exciting news, which we hope to share soon with all members. The Club’s calendar is jam-packed with great golf and social events. There is no better place to be than Randpark.

We have a few employee changes, which we have shared below, and our training and development programme for employees is still in full swing, which recently included another session with our Caddies.

Course projects are moving along at a steady pace. I am sure you would have noticed the level of the tees, and the expansion of certain tees. We have started levelling the 6th men's tee on Bushwillow.


The path on the 11th on Firethorn has also been completed.


The stump grinding is also ongoing, but some of our gum tree stumps proved heavy going. The stump grinding will continue next week.


I look forward to seeing members on the weekend, and throughout the next two weeks. My time is slowly coming to an end, as I depart on the 3rd November. We will keep members informed about the replacement for my position, as we are starting interviews after receiving a number of applications.

Thank You & Farewell

We bid farewell to Simphiwe Simango and Johan Smith.  

Simphiwe will be leaving us for a growth opportunity at another club. We wish her all the best, and thank her for her contribution to Randpark Club.


Johan has gone back to his love of building and shaping golf courses. He is currently busy at Vulintaba Golf Course in Newcastle.


Welcome to New Employees & Congratulations on Promotions

We would like to welcome Fanie Bester, who is replacing Johan Smith, to the green-keeping team. Fanie comes with a wealth of experience, having worked for Golf Data for many years. He was the green-keeper at Parkview, Serengeti, Copper Leaf, Steyn City and Dainfern. He also had a stint in the Middle East looking after Sahara Kuwait. Fanie will be working with Roger to push our courses to new heights. 


We would also like to congratulate Bianca Ndlovu on her new role as Receptionist/Golf Administrator. Bianca previously worked in this role, but after being affected by retrenchments in July 2020, she was re-appointed in halfway house, and we are pleased to have her step up into this position, once again. Well done, and all the best!

Me on a par 3 listening to my mates argue whether it’s a 9 or 8 iron, while I’m standing there holding a 5 iron.



Eight of our caddies attended Caddie Training, sponsored by GolfRSA. The training was presented by Rob Arnold from RCA Golf. The 90-minute session took place on Tuesday morning and for the caddies, even though some of them have been caddying for over 20 years, it was an invaluable learning experience. The course covered some of the most important aspects when performing their duties, from welcoming a player, getting to know the player and his needs during the round, basic etiquette that needs to be followed, and also providing an unforgettable experience. We have always mentioned to our caddies that they play a big role when it comes to delivering the best experience, as they spend most of the time with the player. Additional training is scheduled for the caddies to ensure they are the best at what they do.


Betterball League Update

As we mentioned in Monday’s newsletter, our Bushwillow Betterball League team won the C-Division for the 2021 season. This is such a great achievement from the team. It was a long season, with Covid delaying the season by six weeks. Their main goal was to get promoted into the B-Division for the 2022 season. It was a big surprise on Sunday, when all the final results were submitted from the other clubs in the league, to see that the Bushwillow side finished on top of the leaderboard with 12 points. Three other clubs also finished on 12 points, but as we had the most game points, we secured the 2021 season. Well done team, and good luck for the 2022 season.

Our Firethorn side just missed out this season to move up to the A-Division. The team finished in third position, with a total of 10 league points, 5 points behind second place. They will remain in the B-Division for 2022. Our Bushwillow side will join them next year in the same division, and we can’t wait to see how the teams will do playing in the same league.

Creek 9 had a tough season; a couple of weeks ago it was touch and go for the team, as they were very close to being regulated. They managed to finish strong with a total of six league points, and in 8th position to remain in the D-Division for the 2022 season.
