Lo­cal gol­fers had a glo­ri­ous day at the Rooi­ri­vier­rif sports grounds last Sa­tur­day, 12 May, at a spon­so­red golf day for Can­sa. Ex­ci­ting pri­zes, a lucky draw, an aucti­on and de­li­ci­ous boe­re­wors rolls ma­de it a fa­mi­ly ou­ting for mem­bers of the Gar­den Rou­te Golf Club.

The men’s win­ner in the B-di­vi­si­on was Ri­an Pie­naar, with An­tho­ny San­som in the first pla­ce in the C-di­vi­si­on. The win­ner in the wo­men’s di­vi­si­on was Ka­ren Bar­nard.

Can­sa’s Jackie Bil­jon is thank­ful for the con­ti­nu­ed sup­port of the re­si­dents of Ge­or­ge. “This golf day ser­ves a du­al pur­po­se.

It is a fun­drai­ser as well as an op­por­tu­ni­ty for Can­sa to in­cre­a­se a­wa­re­ness in the com­mu­ni­ty,” she said. C­har­les S­teyn, club pre­si­dent of the Gar­den Rou­te Golf Club, than­ked the spon­sors for their sup­port. “The fu­tu­re of the golf club may be un­cer­tain, but one thing is cer­tain: the mem­bers do the rig­ht thing for the rig­ht re­a­son,” he said. “You can feel the e­ner­gy he­re to­day”. The Ge­or­ge He­rald re­por­ted e­ar­lier on a coun­cil de­ci­si­on to rent the pre­mi­ses to the Rooi­ri­vier­rif

S­port Com­mit­tee. It is un­cer­tain w­het­her the com­mit­tee will ma­na­ge the up­keep of the golf cour­se. Up until now the cour­se has been ma­na­ged by the for­mer les­see of the club hou­se.
