2022 Golf Captain’s of KZN Society Champions

The Golf Captain’s Society of KZN was founded on the 24th of October 1960 in the spirit of “Promoting good fellowship” and the enjoyment of good golf, food and drink. Each year current and past men’s captains of Kwa-Zulu Natal Golf Clubs and provincial teams are invited to join the club and to participate in the annual Gerry Shuttleworth Memorial Trophy. Although historically a club for men’s captains only, from 2022 onward all KZN ladies captains, past and present, are eligible for membership as well.

The club observed its 60th year anniversary in 2020 but owing to various COVID restrictions in 2020 and 2021 has only been able to celebrate the event this year. The Greytown Country Club is happy to report that our current and past GCC men’s captains, Patrick O’Sullivan and Tubby Larkan participated in the celebration hosted at Kloof Country Club on Monday the 27th of June 2022. Their fourball comprised of St. Cathryn’s Fanie van Wyk and Newcastle’s captain, Dick Lemmer. We’re even happier to announce that our captain’s did us proud and won the tournament with a combined total of 92 points.

Greytown Squash Club switching to LED

The GCC Squash club have something big to boast about! Over the weekend of the 12th of November 2021 the Greytown Squash Club invested in going green & supporting the C40 goals to reduce global carbon emissions by replacing the fluorescent lights on both our squash courts with energy efficient LED lights. Not only do LED tubes have a much longer lifespan (50 000hrs or 22 years based on the GCC’s average daily light use) & much higher light quality, but they have been proven to be up to between 70% and 80% more energy-efficient than fluorescent tubes [Click for Reference].

A massive thank you to local electrician, Jitesh Mewa, for the installation, as well as Keveen Ramsamooj, Mike Barrow and Martin Platt for your contributions.

LETCEE Charity Golf Day

The 2021 LETCEE Golf Day was postponed to the 15th of January 2022 due to COVID restrictions over the original date. The tournament was sponsored by Sanlam Private Wealth and this year boasted a field of thirty-six golfers.
