Saturday morning December 23, 2017 we organized a Christmas Breakfast for members, family and friends. This was a blast. Some twenty participants could enjoy the traditional Christmas bread, stuffed eggs, Mimosa, coffee and tea in a cozy atmosphere. Afterward four flights took off for a nice round of golf. We thank all participants and the organisation ! Thank you.
TOURNAMENT COPA DI BANDERA:
Sunday November 26. 2017 the most important and prestigious yearly tournament over 18 holes is played.
Under ideal circumstances 10 players started at 8.00 A.M. to attack the challenging eighteen holes. The greens were perfectly shaped by our green keeper Robur de Vries. The course with the well prepared fairways was waiting for the ten anxious and competitive players.
The prove that the players prepared themselves well was the score over all. The majority of the players are not used to playing 18 holes on our course, so many of them have surprised themselves with the good scores.
Around twelve o'çlock the flights came in and could enjoy the refreshments and well prepared food being snacks, salads, barbecue and deserts. We thank Welmoed van der Wal, Beatriz and Guillermo Noguer and Richard Dove and Frans Erkelens for their contribution.
The results of the Copa di Bandera 2017 are:
1. Frans Erkelens, handicap 26, 35 Stablefort points.
2. Robur de Vries, handicap 20, 34 Stablefort points.
3. Bob Gilmour, handicap 36, 34 Stablefort points.
Holder of the Copa di Bandera 2017 is : Frans Erkelens.
This will be the Winter cup.
Announcements will follow later.
Special JUBILEE tournament was held on April 13, 2014. Our golfclub existed on this date exactly 10 years. A great number of 21 players joined the tournament which was played over nine holes, with only three clubs in the bag. The format was Strokeplay net, 75% handicap rating. Around twelve thirty we could start the Lunch Buffet. This lunch buffet was offered to the members and partners/spouses to celebrate the ten years Jubilee. This Skottel Braai was a blast ! All kind of delicious and exotic food came on the table and everybody enjoyed these specialties in a great mood and atmosphere. Mr. Artie de Vries got a "Oorkonde" to memorize him as a pioneer of the club. Without him no one would have been able to play golf on Bonaire. Thank you Artie.
