Reading golfers celebrate Heritage Day

Reading Country Club’s 8th annual Charity Golf Day, hosted by the Ladies Golf Section and held on Heritage Day (September 24) turned out to be a huge success. The extended morning field was packed to capacity with 160 players competing.

The weather played along and the cold “ones” served on several of the sponsored holes, were a welcome relief. Prize-giving and lunch started at 15:00 and the bar and outside area, decorated with a festive summer feel, had everyone chatting and partying till early evening.

Format for the day’s competition was a Betterball Stableford. Winners, on 48 points, were Bev Kroutz and Glenn Rannard. Handing over the Marc D’Ewes floating trophy was previous lady captain, Augustine D’Ewes. “I’m so proud of what has been achieved at the club and I know my son would have been equally proud of you girls” Augustine said. Marc played in the first Charity Day at Reading in 2006 and finished second overall. Tragically, Marc passed away two days later from meningitis.

Monies raised on this day will be partly donated to Reading CC for much needed upgrades at the club with a share of the profit to be donated to Stepping Stone Hospice & Care Services in New Market Park. Stepping Stone Hospice & Care Services is an independent community driven organization and the first ever service of its kind in the Greater Alberton area of Ekurhuleni.

In thanking the club, the golfers and the various sponsors, Tersia Burger, CEO at Stepping Stone Hospice, emphasized the importance of community involvement in their organization. “Life-limiting illnesses affect us all in one way or another, and if we can all pull together to make the journey easier for those affected, we can truly say that we are making a difference.”
