Randpark’s Contribution towards Improving our Environment

by | Apr 11, 2017 | Golf Days, Events & Conference, Randpark | 0 comments

The Greenkeepers at Randpark have set a challenge to all their Members: Members will plant more trees than Greenkeepers.

This is how the challenge works:
The format will be Betterball Matchplay.
The Members choose one of our courses.
The Greenkeepers play with a hand full of clubs and practice balls – their latest technology in equipment is from the 90’s.

The losing team has to plant how many trees they lose by, i.e. 5/4 – plant 5 trees.

Congratulations to our Greenkeepers who won the first Challenge.
We look forward to our Members stepping up their game in the next Challenge taking place on 26 April.

Down Golf’s Memory Lane – St Andrews, July 2000

This week, exactly 20 years ago at St Andrews, a 30-year-old Ernie Els was trying hard to fight back the tears after he had holed his final putt for a 69 and a 277 total in that year’s Open Championship. I was covering the event for Independent Newspapers and Ernie asked me to join him on the short ride back to the Old Course Hotel where he was staying …
