Club reaches out

16 October 2006

A stroke of genius: Kyle Lenhardt (second from right) of the UCT Golf Club with John Aspeling, Joseph Alexander and Derrick Silwerbauer at the Beth Uriel House of Light.

As chairperson, Kyle Lenhardt rightly takes pride in what the UCT Golf Club has achieved in 2006, particularly the many social competitions and golf days he and his committee have been able to organise. One of these stand out - the inaugural Beth Uriel Classic, as it will hence be known, staged on September 14 at the stately Pearl Valley Signature Golf Estate and Spa in Paarl. The event was held to raise funds for the Beth Uriel House of Light in Salt River, home to some 24 young men aged between 15 and 23 who hail from troubled backgrounds. Thanks to Beth Uriel, they now have a safe place to live, attend school and even go on to higher learning. That takes money, though, which is where the UCT students stepped in. Despite the inevitable teething problems, UCT students raised just under R12 000 for the home through the golf day, which featured not just student players but a score of business leaders. The Beth Uriel Classic is going to be one of the highlights of the UCT club's calendar, promises Lenhardt. "This is going to be the big one."
