Greetings to you all, Members & Friends,
As you are all now aware, our Club was selected as one of the Top 3 in the BEST GOLF COURSE categories in the South Coast Herald's . . .
2015 READERS’ CHOICE AWARDS BEST OF THE SOUTH COAST
The announcement of the results should be published fairly soon so please watch this space!!!
Many thanks to all of you who supported the Club on Friday evening. We had an unusually fairly quiet evening, but our usual Pub Lucky Draws were well supported as per usual. The talented and ever so popular Dave Marks played for us and his music was enjoyed by all.
R700 will be up for grabs in our Club Members Draw this week as Friday night did not see a winner. The draw was lost to Mr Tig Howie. The Schooners Restaurant R100 Meal Voucher was won by Neil Simpson (once again !!) - and it was his Happy Birthday as well on Friday night), and the Whiskey Lucky Draw Prize sponsored by Tails Up - Port Shepstone was won by our Head Barman, Evening Ngongoma.
See pics of our Winners below.
Please all remember to tell your friends that any patron that supports our Club on a Friday night can enter into our Bar Lucky Draws. Visitors are welcome.
PLEASE NOTE - You have to be present at the Club to win these prizes if your name is drawn!!
Would you perhaps like to sponsor a prize for our Friday evening Pub Lucky Draws?? Please contact me if you do. Vouchers or Wine or perhaps a hamper would be really great that will add value into our evening.
I advertise and promote your business in recognition of your contribution towards the prize evening, so please contact me should you wish to sponsor a prize.
Should you be having a golf day at PSCC and would like your poster to be placed in our weekly newsletter and up on our Facebook page, please could you send it to me in a jpeg format and I will gladly advertise it for you.

How does Plyometrics work?
Remember the fun you had as a kid, hopping, skipping, and jumping around the playground? The exercises you do with plyometrics that mimic those dynamic moves.
Plyometrics ("plyo," for short) used to be called "jump training." It's a technique that you can use in many different ways.
Come down and join us for an explosive 30 minutes session, with high intensity training and lots of laughs. For more information or details please contact Kim Strauss. Details are below.

Just a quick report on the B Green upgrade . . .
The surrounds of the green have been virtually completed with the new paving and flagstones all laid. The actual green has been dug up, sand laid down and top soil placed on top. It also has been sprayed with poison to leach it. It will now lie fallow for a couple of weeks. The next stage will be the actual planting of the new grass so we are almost at the halfway stage.
Many thanks to all the sponsors who have generously supported this project @ PSCC, and also thanks to the players in advance for their generous support of this golf event for this coming weekend.
And that's a wrap for what happened down at the Club this past weekend and also what is in the pipeline for this weekend and further into the month.
