Some news in from our Bowls Section . . .
The mid week league took place on Thursday and saw two successes and one very narrow defeat. The ladies skipped by Jenny Rawlins had a good win as did the men lead by Eddie Fann. The side led by David Price narrowly lost losing only on the very last end. Well done to Jenny and Eddie.
On Sunday the monthly Spar Harbour View Trips was held in very pleasant conditions for bowls. We thank Harbour View Spar for their continuing support of this popular event. This month the Winners were Phil Myburgh, Murray and Julie Ross on +32 and the runners up were Leon Sander, Ethne Holding and Barry Krause on +28. The session prize went to Brett Kjonstad, John Nadauld and Geoff Hudson. Well done to all concerned.
We thank the players for their continued support. To the organisers Murray Ross and Brian Rawlins and to the greenkeeper Eddie Fann and his assistant Rastus Reen . . . thank you.
We wish the KBA District side every success in the Inter District tournament being held in Edenvale this weekend.
John Platter, the Wine Guru of South Africa will be our Guest host at our Food and Wine Tasting evening this coming Saturday the 9th of April. Tickets are selling fast so please get yours at the Club Reception ASAP if you would like to support this Club evening.
Please note the ticket price is R230pp. This price INCLUDES your wine for the evening. The featured wine estate for the evening will be Groote Post.
Groote Post is a historic 18th century farm on the Cape's West Coast where winemaking traditions have been revived by the Pentz family. Unique aspects and cool climatic conditions of the Darling Hills yield superlative fruit. Their wines are produced to reflect the uniqueness of their vineyards.
Third and fourth generation dairymen, Peter and Nick Pentz are hoping that like cream, their Groote Post wines will come out on top. And, if the first accolade for their maiden release is anything to go by, they are well on their way. WINE magazine, in reviewing the 1999 Sauvignon Blanc vintage in their November issue, called it a vintage from hell and only picked out four 4-star wines. Notable, the two top Sauvignon Blancs, Neil Ellis Groenekloof and Groote Post, came from adjoining vineyards on the cool sea - and south-facing Kapokberg in the Darling Hills on the Cape West Coast, an area fast growing in stature as a wine growing area.
The Groote Post Homestead was built in 1808 and, for a while, was Lord Charles Somersets only genuine "shooting box" and later was the home of well known author, Hildagonda Duckitt. The name is derived from its original status as the largest guarding post in the area, set up to protect cattle from marauding Hottentot stock thieves. Since buying Groote Post in 1972 they later added the adjoining farm, the historic Klawer Valley, and today the combined farms total 3 000 hectares.
In 1904 Peter Pentz's grandfather founded the Union Dairy in Cape Town. Dairy herds were established over time in Tokai, Philippi and Darling (Groote Post). Peter received the prestigious South African Agricultural Writers National Farmer of the Year Award for 1998 for his excellence in dairy farming. In 2001 the Pentz family decided to sell off their prize Holsten herd to concentrate solely on the production of world-class wine.
Please see our selected wine menu below for Saturday evening. Groote Post is available to purchase at the Club and order forms will be on the tables for you to make your selected choice.

Air conditioning units plays a vital role in keeping your home cool and comfortable.
