For her 99th birthday, our community organised a bike/trike event, and her expressed wish to fly again was fulfilled with a unique garden shaped like a plane and adorned with miniature aeroplanes crafted from collected funds.

Krugersdorp Golf Club joyfully celebrated a momentous occasion as we commemorated Caz de la Roche's 100th birthday. (see feedback slideshow below) Though her centennial milestone fell on the 15th, our festivities took flight on Saturday, the 14th, given her plans to soar through the skies on Sunday.

The event captured the vibrant essence of Great Granny Cassie surrounded by her grandchildren and a spectacular 'airplane succulent display' generously presented by the Krugersdorp Golfing Ladies. This thoughtful gift, adorned with 'Rand airplanes,' showcased the creativity and warmth of our golfing community. 

The celebration extended beyond the golf course, with Caz's family from Dubai joining the festivities on our deck. A heartfelt video captures the essence of her adventurous spirit, showcasing not only her passion for golf but also her love for flying and motorbike rides, a testament to a life well-lived. What a way to turn 100!

Krugersdorp Golf Club salutes Caz de la Roche on her centennial milestone and looks forward to many more years of shared camaraderie on and off the greens.
