On 1 November 2014, the Kragga Kamma Country Club will be celebrating their 13th birthday and plan to make this day a joyous one for all competitors – especially those who stay behind for the late afternoon prize giving. Players of all levels are welcome to come and join the club on the golf course; even non affiliated players are very welcome. There will be sponsored T-boxes and greens and obviously the regular ‘watering holes’ too.
In the next year or so it is envisaged that the course will be upgraded even further with some strategically placed improvements. This will further add colour to the course which already boasts 4 dams and two environmentally sensitive areas.
While most of the funds being generated by the Committee are utilised to fund enhancements of the Club, Kragga Kamma Country Club is involved with some Community programmes and have already pledged some donations via the ‘Algoa Cares’ programme.
Frans Schellingerhout says; “We are looking forward to the mentioned Anniversary golf day. Bookings are already open and we have already many sponsors and players, some from out of town, committed to join us on this day. Quite a number of very good prizes have already been received for this IPS competition. There are still slots available as we can accommodate about 240 players on a full day of golf. First come, first served, of course!”
Bookings can be made at 041 379 4155
