The Senior and Super Senior sides are all packed and ready for their challenge at Wanderers Golf Club starting 10th to 15th April 2016.

All practice rounds have been concluded and the teams are well prepared for their encounters.

We have some special news, our Super Senior team member Bill Berry represented the then East Rand Junior Foundation team in his first inter provincial at the Wanderers Golf Club in 1966, 50 years on Bill is back and is representing Ekurhuleni Golf Union in his Super Senior debut at the Wanderers Golf Club. This is a most wonderful achievement and all his team mates and the Golf Union are very proud of Bill. Well done Mr. B!!

We are all looking forward to an excellent week together at the Wanderers and as a team we will do our very best to make our Golf Union proud.

Gavin & Vaughan

Firstly the Executive Committee of the Ekurhuleni Golf Union would like to wish all our Senior Golfers and their families all the very best for the New Year with good health and good golfing.

The Senior Social Golf fixtures have been finalized and are available on the web site. A number of our clubs have times available on Saturday afternoons. Thus we felt we should arrange some senior social tournaments on Saturday afternoons. This gives us additional options and hopefully won't clash with special Sundays such as Mothers/Father's Day.The first of these tournaments will be played at Germiston Golf Club on Saturday the 13th February 2016. This will enable you senior golfers to spend Sunday 14 February (Valentine's Day) with those you love.

With regard to our social fixtures in 2016 our clubs have been most accommodating with regard to the dates and the playing fee they are charging us. We are very grateful to the clubs for their help and support of senior golf. Our social golf budget is very tight and we have to operate within the budget, which does not leave much for prizes. Thus if any of you can sponsor or know someone who would like to sponsor a social tournament or the prizes we would be most appreciative.

February sees the start of both Senior and Handicap League. Senior league kicks off on Saturday 20 February 2016. I have no doubt that the senior league will be as competitive as it was last year with current champions Benoni Country Club doing their best to make it two years in a row. The draw is available on the web site and we wish all our teams a successful season that is both competitive and fun.

The Senior Inter Provincial tournament will be played at the Wanderers Golf Club during April this year and we are expecting great things from both our Senior and Super Senior teams.
