Last chance to enter for 2021 Knockouts
Monday, May 3, 2021 - 08:27
The journey so far,
It has been a great journey to date at Stellenbosch GC and for the golfing community... Our professionals on tour have been playing some great golf with Oliver Bekker losing in the play-off in the Limpopo Classic and Justin Harding finishing 14th in the Grand Canaria Tournament in Spain. On the local front we hosted a very successful Senior Inter Provincial Tournament last week and I would like to congratulate Western Province on a double victory winning the senior and super senior division.
Notice of hollowtining and reciprocity
Neil and his team once again did an amazing job with the golf course and for those of you that played on Saturday and Sunday I’m sure you’ll agree the greens were a “little” faster than normal. Thanks Neil you're a champ!
We’ll be closed from Monday to Friday next week as we do our first hollowtining and inter-seeding for the year. The course and driving range will be closed from Monday 3 May 'til Friday 7 May. The clubhouse however will be open for you to enjoy!

Zooping up the format a little bit for the Alliance Competition with a mix grill twist and a dress up for the teams!
