OVERS VERSUS UNDERS
20th & 21st of SEPTEMBER 2019!
The 2019 "Overs vs Unders" competition will be taking place on the 20th & 21st of September – come rain or shine.
There will be a drinks evening on the Thursday, 19th of September to do the draw for the Betterball Matchplay.

USING THE NEW SECURITY GATE!
As everyone knows, our new gate is now completely operational at the front (gate) entrance.
Please drive up to the Gooseneck and press the green button to open the gate.
There are pressure plates located just in front of the gooseneck, so make sure you pull up enough for your front tyres to be on the pressure plates.
(NB: The gooseneck should be in line with the drivers seat to activate pressure plates.)
The Humewood Golf Club is assisting with fundraising in order to help the Animal Welfare.
All proceeds will be handed over to the Animal Welfare at the prize giving on their golf day.
Anyone making a donation stands a chance of winning 8 free rounds of golf!
If you would like to make a donation, you can drop off any items of food, supplies or even money at the club during August. Please help this wonderful and worthy cause!
The Biased Traditionalist!
As the end of the year is fast approaching, we come across the time for subscriptions. I decided to ask a few questions to Humewood’s longest continuous member, Ant Foster. He’s been a continuous member at our prestigious club for 65 years, first joining in 1954.
So, what makes Humewood so special for Ant, “It’s a unique experience each time you play the links because of all the various weather conditions. Every time it’s a new and different challenge.”
Ant also has 6 hole-in-Ones on record (and I’m still trying for my first!), but not every game is flawless with the highest score on a hole being 12 in a monthly medal! Now, I know I’ve scored higher on our (shortest Par 5 in the world) 6th hole, as I’m sure everyone remembers a legendary 29 scored on this hole not too long ago.
See Ant Fosters 7th "HOLE-IN-ONE"above!!
Our course is such a wonderful sight and with the condition that is in, I’m sure everyone is proud to call themselves a Humewood Member. We’d like to invite all the members to spread the word about The Only True Links in Africa, so when everyone has to decide where to sign-up, we’ll be ready with membership forms 😉
Until next time, hope the 6th hole treats you well and keep the shoes clean.
