Tarryn Borsutzky was born in Durban many years ago and moved to Cape Town within 3 months of visiting the beautiful city for the first time in 1995.
Regrettably, she only started to play golf fairly late in life as she at first refused to try to play golf when her friends begged citing that this was not for her. However eventually, they managed to convince her to join them for a round of golf with their social club – The Village People. After going to Vodacom Village (as it was known in those days) on Saturday and hitting hundreds of balls and missing just as many, she walked the fairways for the first time on Sunday 3rd February at Kuilsriver Golf Club and the rest, as they say, is history. The golf bug had bitten and there was faced with a point of no return.
After joining the social club she was roped into serving on the committee and served on this committee for the first 3 years of her golfing career.
She did however join Swellendam Golf Club as a Country member to have an official handicap not yet ready to select a home club in Cape Town. After many rounds of golf at various courses in 2010 she settled on Devonvale Golf & Wine Estate in Stellenbosch and has been a proud member since then.
Tarryn served as Devonvale Ladies Captain for her 2-year tenure in 2014 & 2015 thereafter serving on the Boland Ladies Golf Committee from 2016 to 2020.
During the years 2016, she served as an Executive and in 2017 took over the position of Vice-President.
In 2018 Tarryn took over the Presidency of Boland Ladies Golf up until 2020 and as part of this role was a member of the SA Women’s Golf Executive Team, loving known as the Green Team.
Unfortunately, due to family commitments with her daughter completing matric in 2020 she made a decision to step down and focus on the priorities at hand.
Tarryn’s intention was to then “just be a normal golfer” without any ties to committees or job. That was not to be and she agreed to take over the role of Devonvale Ladies Captain once again. This role was also not meant to be when she was approached to stand for the position of Devonvale Club Captain – a first for the club. After much deliberation she agreed and accepted the role in June 2022. Whilst facing a daunting task Tarryn intends to bring as much value to the members as possible.
Communication between the club and its member’s is imperative and this will be her focus during her term amongst other ideas she has up her sleeve.
Happy to give back to Golf in any way, shape or form
