DALE STAFF TEE OFF
Much fun was had when Dale College Boys Primary School held a golf day in King William’s Town on Sunday.
The fundraising event was staged under the guidance of the school’s Parent Teachers’ Association’s (PTA) chairman, Renier Roets, along with PTA member, Christopher Breckle.
Roets said he was pleased with the event’s success, as well as the many businesses that came on board as sponsors.
An impressive 47 players took to the fairways following a chipping competition. In order to qualify for the winning prize, an entrant had to chip a ball from the clubhouse balcony to the third hole directly below the clubhouse.
The closest to the pin was Emile Mouton, who walked away with a colour printer sponsored by Nashua East London.
The chipping was not without drama, as a female photographer was struck on the leg by a ball which deflected off a balcony railing, much to her dismay.
Ending first was the Alexander Construction team, while the Dale junior team, composed of staff members Luyi Mpande, Ronnie Esterhuizen, Ignatius Genade and Dinesh Pillay, won the prize for playing the most golf.
Esterhuizen, playing with a borrowed set of clubs as he is not a regular golfer, was heard to comment: “These clubs don’t work. They don’t hit the ball straight.”
This was followed by a sliced chip to the green, and howls of laughter.
