Golf weekend

I recently joined Glengarry Country Club, situated in the Drakensburg Gardens Golf and Leisure resort. I needed a golf handicap, and just wasn’t willing to pay + R 7 000 a year for the average course in JHB.

So I joined Glengarry, which is cheaper due to its location. We went there over the Easter weekend for the club champs. Booked into the hotel for the weekend, what a fantastic place.
Situated in the Underberg area (southern Drakensburg) 628 km from Johannesburg. The resort specifically caters for families and has all the amenities necessary. Playgrounds, tennis courts, squash courts, badminton, horse riding (trails into the mountains) hiking (naturally), trout fishing and of course, golf on a championship 18-hole course.
The course is amazing, nestled in the mountains, with quite a few elevated tee’s, in fact one tee (6th hole) you need to climb a bit so you can tee off a cliff down to the fairway.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself and came 1st in the B division and 5th overall.

congrats on your sunset on Skywatch.

Sometimes, I wonder, if there is ever two of the same photo of the same sun set. I mean will the sun set be the same in SA as in New Zealand..

What a great opportunity to see courses from other countries. Fantastic shots. The last time I golfed with a view like that was when I was in British Columbia, Canada. Pretty hard not to be impressed with the Rockies in the background. I finally get a chance to hit the links tomorrow. Can't wait.
