It was a heart breaking week at Umkomaas Golf Club after finding out about the passing of Mr Dave Clark, Tim Clark's father. Mr Clark was sick for some time and eventually passed away on
Wednesday 21 March.
The Wake ceremony was held at the club on Saturday 24 March where old friends and family as well as golf members attended to pay tribute to the kind gentleman. During Dave Clark’s earlier days, he spent his time running the ProShop and was a proud member at UGC. Rest in Peace Dave Clark.
It wasn't all tears at UGC, the Bingo Nite held on Friday 23 March was a great success. Well done to all the winners and a high five to the UGC Marketing Team for pulling off another successful event.
Our next event, The Big Braai Nite, will be taking place on Friday 20 April. We will supply the
charcoal and braai stands, all you have to do is bring your own meat, some friends and family and
have a good time with us. Please note that no alcohol may be brought onto the property. Watch
out for and share the poster on our Facebook Page: Umkomaas Golf Club.
