Dear Members

Compliments of the season to you all and may 2022 be a prosperous year for you. I hope you had a good break over the holiday season and are ready to take on the challenges of 2022. Lets hope that Covid 19 is behind us and that we can return to some form of normality this year.

Golf did exceptionally well over the holiday season resulting in a pleasing performance for the year. Well done to Kyle and the Pro Shop team as well as to Etienne and the grounds team on their efforts throughout the year, the course is in a good condition and it is pleasing to receive positive feedback from not only our members but from members of other clubs as well. Improvements will continue throughout the year to keep the course up to standard.

We have a full schedule of events planned throughout the year for our members which includes to name a few the monthly Members Draw, Quiz and Bingo evenings. Our first event for the year will be Valentines Dinner consisting of a five course set menu prepared by Chef Imagine accompanied by light entertainment to set the mood. To book for this event email Jeanette at events@kyalamigolf.co.za

During 2022 we will be continuing with minor projects around the club to improve our service delivery to our members and apologise upfront for any inconvenience caused. We are currently busy with the Tipuana Room and Kitchen areas which are in much need of an upgrade.

Thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to seeing you at the club.

A new year and new challenges. When we did our Summer Treatment in 2021 we had the perfect weather for it and it seems Murphy had a say this year and the heavens opened on the wrong days. As a result we were a little delayed but hats off to Ettienne and the Golf Data team for getting the course ready and playable for Saturday. There is no quick fix to hollow tined greens and we thank you for your patience during the regrowth period.

As we head deeper into 2022 we also have some exciting competitions coming up. Our annual knockouts begin in February and entry sheets are on the noticeboard – if you can’t make it down to the club please email the Proshop and we will enter you > proshop@kyalamigolf.co.za. Entries for knockouts will close on the 6th of February with the draw out by the following week.

The Crown Jewel of competitions is scheduled for the 12th and 13th March and the 2022 Club Championships promise to be our best yet. An electronic entry form will be distributed in a dedicated mailer with more details around the event. Entries will close on the 6th of March and the draw will be out by the 9th of March.

We are also introducing Windhoek Pairs for our men’s section and this is scheduled for Saturday the 12th of February. This event has had a tremendous response from our ladies and we look forward to great success from our men’s section.

As if that isn’t enough to digest we also have our 1st Major of the year in February, the 19th of February is the Founders Trophy and is the only individual Major of the year.

I trust everybody had a good Christmas and a good new year and quality time spent with the families. It's a new year and I'm sure it's going to be better than the last year, let's rephrase that it's a new year and it is going to be the best year yet. We have to be positive in these troubled times.

The course was busy over December and very well received by the visitors who also enjoyed our course. During this time we were able to keep up with maintenance. We had planned our hollow tining treatment for the 17th and we were rained out the first part of the day and started very late in the morning. What the rain did was good and bad but in the end we got the job done.

The course was open on Saturday and playable despite all the rain from the previous week with waterlogged areas still evident in places. The course has over the years been quite wet after lots of rain and extra drainage has been added, this drainage has certainly well.

We are no sooner back in full swing with maintenance after the treatment and we are already preparing for our club champs in March, which is always a highlight on the club calendar.

This year we hope to make it better than previous years.

I look forward to seeing you on the fairways.
