Robin MacDonald newspaper clippings

I’d scanned some of my Dad’s old newspaper clippings, so it was time to commit them for posterity.. Cricket from the sixties…

This is an article from the 1960s. Currie Cup cricket is the South African equivalent of each US state competing against each other. SA had 5 provinces (or “states”).

Golf next. My Dad never got a hole in one but he got an albatross at Royal Durban Golf Club.

RDGC is a unique golf course. Totally flat and wind-swept. Two-shot penalty if you got into the rough. Surrounded by a horse race track. They have actually reversed the front and back nine since our time. Dad was club President a couple of years in the 70s.Fond memories of New Years dinners with party hats and Dad making the speech.

My Dad made the Natal amateur semifinals a couple of times. Natal was one of the South African provinces.
