GolfRSA salutes Joan Herbert

Joan and Darryl Herbert

2 May 2023 – It is with enormous sadness that we learned of the passing of one of South African golf’s great servants, Joan Herbert.

On behalf of GolfRSA and Ekurhuleni Golf Union and all our members, we extend our deepest condolences to Darryl, their children, grandchildren, family and friends. We will miss Joan’s smile, her positive attitude to life, to people and her dedication to the game she loved so much. She was mom to many at Ekurhuleni Golf Union, and our thoughts and prayers are with you all in this sad and difficult time.

Joan generously devoted years of her life in the administration, promotion, and support of the game in her 43-year tenure at Ekurhuleni Golf Union, and even though she retired last year, she was always just a phone call away.

We are deeply saddened by her passing. #RipJoanHerbert
