CERES: CLUB OF THE MONTH (2): Ceres produced strong golfers for long period

- 14 July 2020

Strong players are synonymous with the Ceres Golf Club and the names on the club championship board are proof of the quality golfers at the Ceres Club.
Mike Reid holds the distinction of being the winner of the most club champs – 9 times.
Bertu Nel won the club champs 8 times – 4 in a row from 1986 to 1989 and 4 in a row from 1991 to 1994.
The De Bruin family have a special relationship with the Ceres Club Championship.
Clem de Bruin won the title 3 times between 1976 and 1981.
In 1990 his son Casper (the current Club Captain) won the first of his 4 titles in the club championship.
The course record belongs to Casper de Bruin when he posted a magnificent 62 during the 2001 club championship.
The last two years Clement de Bruin (son of Casper and grandson of Clem) came so close to win this title as well, but both times lost in the play-off.
