This was indeed the case on Friday May 14 when hanging with Dan de Wet – part of the furniture at Kingswood Golf Estate for the past 10 years and serving as Community Facilities Manager to the Home Owners Association.

On first name terms with most, Dan coaxed club members and participants in that afternoon’s fundraising walk into parting with their moolah and so stand a chance of winning the magnificent hamper on display next to his table.

Indeed, so superb and sizeable were the raffle goodies that a wheelbarrow was roped in to contain their bulk. And more than once, prospective ticket buyers of the married, male species were lured with Dan’s suggestion that “the wife can use the wheelbarrow and you can use the booze…”

Not only did the hamper contain a plethora of top-level whiskies, wine and other beautifully-bottled tipple, but also assorted snacks to accompany these liquid treats, all of which contributed towards the combined prize value of R4,500.00.

Dan de Wet

A stalwart of the Kingswood Home Owners Association, Dan is not only passionate about the game of golf, but also dedicates much of his time to management of the estate.

‘Being a fast player makes me a bad player – but I try to avoid looking like the slower crowd, be they young or old, who seem to fake rigor mortis on the course!’

Jokes aside, Dan takes his managerial role seriously, in addition to many other duties, he takes responsibility for the wellbeing of the estate’s resident springbok population. He checks on them at least twice daily, doing the rounds after dawn and before dusk falls.
