Heather Rabie, Darryl Hendricks, Clive Rabie and Janine van der Merve won the inaugural SHARP Classic held at St Francis Links in near perfect conditions! Their considerable powers of attrition were rewarded with an eight point victory.
The first SHARP Classic was a special occasion with colleagues, friends and clients gathering at the magnificent St Francis Links. For most of the field it was a pity the golf did not match the perfect conditions not often found when playing this great golf course. The quality of the winner’s score of 95 is best understood when the average alliance score around the impressive St Francis Links layout is 89. The winner’s points total was eight points more than the chasing pack showing how great their golf was on the day. Being an inaugural event the whole field were rookies. The rookies to St Francis Links found the going tough but no more than Seartec’s National Dealer Manager Andre Coetzer, who was heard saying he is selling his golf clubs and taking up something easier. Only kind words from the great Golf Director, Jeff Clause, were able to change Andre’s mind.
Rugby World Cup wrap-up from Seartec Chief Marketing Officer Bob Skinstad
Guests were entertained by an inside view into the past Rugby World Cup, what plan Bob thinks the current Springbok team should adopt, why he thinks New Zealand are currently so much stronger than the rest of the world including the great rugby culture they have and an entertaining look at how Pieter De Villiers dealt with team pressure during his tenure as Springbok coach. Thank you Bob for sharing this with the Sharp Classic players!
