Golf clubhouse fight goes viral
A video has gone viral of a fight between two golfers in the clubhouse at a Gauteng golf club, and the club has now issued a formal apology.
The fight took place at Lake Club Benoni's Club Championship prizegiving over the weekend, after one golfer had accused a fellow player of cheating.
The accused was having none of it, and head-butted the accuser, before throwing a series of punches. The accuser fell, breaking a window before a woman intervened to stop the ruckus.
Lake Club Benoni has now released the following statement:
On behalf of Lake Club, we duly apologise for the unfortunate situation that happened during our Club championship prizegiving yesterday. Please note that we do not accept nor condone any such behaviour as we have obligation to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all our members and guests. It is very unfortunate that the video has gone Viral as this is a once off incident and is not indicative of the fellowship we have at our club.
Urgent meetings to discuss the way forward have already taken place and we can assure you that the situation will be dealt with both fairly and promptly. We request your patience in the meanwhile. We will ensure that a communication will follow once the relevant Sanctions have been imposed.
