This marks the second and major phase of development for joint venture partners IFA Hotels & Resorts and Tongaat Hulett Developments in greater Zimbali, following the Zimbali Coastal Resort, which has already earned acclaim as one of the world’s finest resort and residential estates. Signatory guests attending the Sod Turning Ceremony included MEC MPP, Michael Mabuyakhulu and local government dignitaries from Tourism KwaZulu-Natal, Trade and Investment KwaZulu-Natal, the Kwadukuza Municipalities and Ilembe District Municipality. In his keynote address Gary Player welcomed Zimbali Lakes Resort to his global Design portfolio saying, “Since the early 80’s we have been a worldwide leader in golf course design and we are driven by our proven ability to add substantial value to real estate and resort properties.
The significance of the Gary Player Signature brand to KwaZulu-Natal will have a positive impact for tourism in the province. MEC MPP, Michael Mabuyakhulu, said, “The KwaZulu-Natal province is proud to welcome a true South African golfing legend and the Gary Player Signature Golf Course to adorn our beautiful north coast. The development of the course will take around 18 months of extensive earthworks in conjunction with conservation planning and indigenous planting to help control erosion during construction and to re-establish the natural flora. A target style golf concept will likely be implemented while creating an interesting variety through the utilization of natural land forms to capture and maximise views of the natural beauty. Embracing what Mother Nature has provided, the course offers a fun, inviting, beautiful and memorable golf experience, while respecting the ecological assets of the site. A combination of traditional and revetted style bunkering will create interest, contrast and variety and ideally off-white bunker sand will be utilised to create a high visual impact and superior playing conditions.
IFA Hotels & Resorts is a leader in real estate development, specialising in premium mixed-use hotel and tourism resort projects throughout the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia, North America and the Indian Ocean region. Established by Marc Player in the early 1980s and widely recognized as the most successful international golf course architectural firm in the world, Gary Player Design has branded over 300 layouts with the mark of a champion. Kenny Rogers, who has sold more than 120 million records worldwide and recorded more than 65 albums during his 52 years in show business, will headline at the Aquarius Outdoor Amphitheater on Sunday, Sept.
Rogers has received three Grammys, 11 People's Choice Awards, 18 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music awards and five Country Music Association awards. Country superstar Gary Allan will take the stage at Harrah's 3,000-seat Rio Vista Outdoor Amphitheater on Saturday, Sept.
Legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Surf Rockers, The Beach Boys, will appear at the Edgewater's 2,600-seat E Center on Sept. Winners will advance to the final round with final table prize payout on Sunday going for places one through seven. Tribute acts offer a great entertainment option at some Laughlin resorts: River Palms, Tropicana and Harrah's.
At the River Palms in the 2700 Club, the finishing faux August lineup is The Sheagles, an all-female tribute to the Eagles on Aug.
Keith Ellis' talents were revealed in elementary school when he effortlessly transformed himself into entertaining characters and used unexpected facial expressions to make classmates laugh. After a busy August it has been nice to slow down, giving us a break before October when we start to pick up, then it will be no peace for the wicked ‘til April.
There really are some sad twats in Thailand, and instead of all pulling together and promoting Thailand as the world class fishing destination it is, some of the guiding (hic, joke) services run by self-titled professional fishermen are hell bent on destroying what people like Francois Helios’ Fishing Adventures Thailand and Jules Fernandez’ Siam Fishing Tours are doing to promote Thailand. We are finishing off a few bits, so everything will be ship-shape by the time high season arrives.
This month, although only 22 fishermen visited Gillhams, they accounted for 408 fish, made up as follows… 28 arapaima to 290lbs, 217 Siamese carp to 70lbs, 43 Amazon red tail catfish to 75lbs, 13 alligator gar to 25lbs, one Julian’s golden prize carp of 20lbs, three Asian red tail catfish to 25lbs, seven black pacu to 20lbs, 11 Chao Phraya catfish to 45lbs, 64 spotted sorubim to 35lbs, five arawana to 6 lbs, five spotted featherback to 10lb, two wallago attu to 20lb, seven striped snakehead to 5lb, and two giant gourami to 14lb. Last month’s newsletter was full, and as the Anglers Mail lads were here for the last week in August and first week in September (except in the case of Gary Newman), we decided to hold their catch report over ‘til this month, although their August fish were added to that month’s figures. Gary caught the most, but then he would, as he had an extra week landing 108 fish of six species.
The first week of the month we were visited by an old friend, Matt Skinner, who used to fish Harefield with me before the war, when we were both a lot younger-looking, or at least Matt was! Sean and Gollock have been fishing a fair bit this month, showing off their skills, and fishing short spells between guiding they have had 68 Siamese carp to 50lb.
We also had a visit from five lads from a Dorset-based shooting estate for a 24-hour session.
Through the years, we have executed a portfolio of over 300 projects in 35 countries over 5 continents.
Since its establishment, the Zimbali Coastal Resort has already proven itself as one of the leading golf and residential estates and now with the introduction of the Gary Player brand, Zimbali Lakes Resort is destined to attract even greater aspiration as a sought-after destination. The key strengths capitalised on were the panoramic views and the dramatic elevation changes that are unique to the region. Careful planning and ecologically sound design principals ensure that the golf elements work in harmony with nature.
Platinum Paspalum grass will likely be chosen for the putting surfaces with other grass varieties being considered for the fairways.
We will be diligent in our efforts to produce a golf course that is user-friendly and most importantly encourages a golfing experience that is rewarding and memorable to Zimbali Lakes”, concluded Jeff Lawrence on behalf of Gary Player Design. IFA Hotels & Resorts offers exclusive branded residential, resort and hotel properties in exotic locations, with sound appreciating investment opportunities including hotel condominiums, vacation clubs and private residence clubs.
Over its existence, the firm has worked on five continents and in over 35 countries, and prides itself on taking Gary Player and his design experience to emerging markets to help develop the game of golf globally. Sharing one eight-piece band on a custom stage, the show features the co-headliners rarely leaving the stage and often joining in on each other's songs. This show bringing together world-class technology and renowned gymnasts will headline at Don's Celebrity Theatre, Aug.
The stage production pushes this performance to the limits by combining modern and traditional acrobatics with spectacular lighting and costumes.
Kubota uses dry wit, lighthearted sarcasm and a sly take on his own ethnicity as part of his act. The weather here for the first two weeks of the month has been rain, rain and more rain, just like a British summer!

Now we have the best security in Thailand at our resort; the local police take care of security for us, and we have at least one policeman on duty here all night. If these dorks wish to control fishing in Thailand, why don’t they buy their own lakes?
We built and designed our fishery to sustain our stocks, and six months before stocking fish we stocked millions of shrimp. For those expats who read this newsletter, the Christmas party is filling up fast so get booking now to reserve your place at the best Christmas party in Asia.
They all fished hard for arapaima the first week, with Adam and Gary choosing to fish Siam carp for the second week, while Vince stuck it out for arapaima red tail catfish and sorubim. By keeping a steady stream of bait going in, they have been taking multiple catches of fish in short sessions, which proves what we tell our clients – keep the bait going in and keep recasting the feeder, and large hits of Siamese carp are on the cards. Sharing the same environmental ethos as IFA Hotels & Resorts, Gary Player Design has made it their core focus during the construction of the course to utilise environmentally sensitive building materials. Respecting the sensitive riparian (wetland) areas, the course routing maximises the natural contours of the land, which suggests a target style golf course. On completion, the course will boast distances of 6,880 yards for Championship, 6,320 yards for Back, 5,715 yards for Middle and 4,727 yards for Front with a par 71. IFA Hotel & Resorts’ current portfolio consists of 46 projects in total, of which 18 are hotels, with over 11,500 keys across 12 countries in four continents. The company offers three tiers of golf course design brands, Black Knight Design™, Player Design™ and Gary Player Signature Design™ - of which Gary Player is personally involved in each Signature project. The top seven scores from Saturday's rounds will advance to the final round on Sunday for the chance at the top prize of $2,500 cash. There will be a variety of bands in a showdown for prizes, including a $3,000 for 1st place on Saturday from 6-10 p.m. Our monsoon season ends in October normally, with a week of continuous rain, so we are hoping this is it.
Now police do not lie (do they?), so imagine our surprise when our policeman reported to us that he had seen a ghost with a green flashing light fishing the lake in the middle of the night. He promised her not to go fishing, but could not resist a day at Dream Lakes with Rainer and Ploy – see our links page for Dream Lakes. We also planted huge bloodworm beds, so along with all the small fry here our fish do not need feeding; they have that wonderful food source called natural food.
Mind you he had to, as he was well and truly stitched up by Adam, who had already caught a 380lb arapaima. As Matt’s low season is the same as ours, he came for some fishing, bringing his lovely other half ‘Poke Her Huntis’ Clair. The big Siamese carp have avoided the pair, and it’s pretty sad really when a 50lb carp is considered medium-sized – just the same as a 20lb carp in Europe. The cornerstone of Gary Player’s design approach is to create playable and memorable golf courses within the constraints of a given site, while being ultra-sensitive to the surrounding environment. He is the RIAA's eighth bestselling male artist of all time with one Diamond album, 19 Platinum albums and 31 Gold albums.
Event rules will be distributed at tournament registration and will be available at the Trop Advantage® Club on the main casino floor. The amount of cold water going into the lake has put most species off the feed for the first month since we opened, and not one Mekong catfish has been landed, although several have been hooked and lost… or at least several unstoppable monsters presumed to be Mekong catfish have been lost. He had called his chief out, who had also seen this ghost swim round the lake and whisp off over the fence. The Anglers Mail team were due to go home on the 6th but much to the envy of Vince and Adam, Gary Newman (aka ‘When I found out he was a man…’) decided to stay on an extra week, mind you what a week!
He and Gary had drawn the swims that produced two big arapaima, and in the bar the night of Gary’s capture of a 320lb arapaima, while helping Gary drink two bottles of champagne, the lads agreed that as the top bay was due to throw up a lump they would rest it for Vince to have a go for his biggie the next afternoon.
Gary’s stalking paid off taking arawana, red tails and arapaima by crawling around in his jungle suit. Yours truly has been floater fishing, taking Siamese carp and red tail catfish off the top, and also fitting in the odd hour fly-fishing, taking some impressive red tail catfish, spotted sorubim, and trying for a Chao Phraya catfish on the fly. The lads’ mate Luke only came for the beer, and had a brace of arapaima in the first two hours, but that’s fishing – you pay your money and you take your chance! The result is a portfolio of award-winning and environmentally-recognized courses around the world, including the Top 3 Courses in South Africa and a multitude of Asian awards - most notably the Best Golf Course in both Hong Kong and Indonesia. However the spotted sorubim, red tail catfish, Siamese carp and arapaima have been feeding well. After much pee taking Benz told me you should not mock ghosts, because they will come and get you!
There was rain every day with plummeting temperatures, but still the Siamese carp, red tail catfish and arapaima fed. I was in my office replying to emails when over the radio came the shout, “Arapaima, top bay!” Racing around the lake to assist, well, wobbling actually, imagine my surprise to see Adam playing an obvious beast. He resembled one of those guys out of the band The Village People, but with his track record who would be surprised at that? She should have fished the Colne valley in the Horse and Barge days; she would have shown the lads what a proper drink was! At least they all caught fish, and then went on to have a good evening in our bar playing pool and swapping monster fish stories with the other guests, plus a buffet feast of a Butter Bean special Indian. Multiple rankings have also been received in the US by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine, and several courses in the US have been certified by the Audubon International as well for environmental stewardship. Due to the rain our clients have been spending more time in the bar and playing pool, so it’s an ill wind. Well after several nights of making owl noises and general banter, Butter Bean, Benz and I were walking back from the bar at 1.30am when I spotted a green flashing light in the lake.

John Pierce the Phuket ladies’ hairdresser can’t keep away; he is becoming a permanent fixture here – mind you our fish are bigger than anything they have in the ocean around Phuket nowadays! We do feed twice a year for a week at a time with food soaked in Oxy, an antibacterial agent that stops bacterial infections, but that is for the fishes’ wellbeing. As we caged Adam’s second 300lb-plus fish at 390lb, I asked why Vince was not fishing as agreed. Adam finished with six species, and although he was only two swims down from Gary, he got the medium sized carp in front of him, so along with the 70, he had a 65-plus, a couple of 50lb fish, and also the only Julian’s golden prize carp of the month at 20lbs.
Matt fitted in three days’ fishing targeting arapaima and Siamese carp, and he ended up with 16 Siamese carp to 70lb, two arapaima of 200 and 180lb, plus three sorubim. This feast was attended by all on the lake plus several of the local expat community, Stevie boy’s Indians are legendary in Thailand, and we do a special once a month, or more if requested. The temperature has dropped so much George the tortoise has gone into semi-hibernation, Mr.
Benz crapped herself, poor old Butter Bean was hoping it was a pizza delivery, but as for me, being the sort of bloke that believes everything has an explanation, decided to strip off and swim out and investigate.
Funny old thing this fishery management – after removing some 400kg of tilapia from the lake last month, I have cocked up the balance so that now there is less predication on the java barb we have had an explosion of fry. If these dickheads had to buy stock, they possibly might understand this, but I doubt it, as their only concern is profit without investment. Adam, in a true stroke-puller’s rehearsed speech, replied, “Oh, was he fishing here today?” blaming the champagne and heat for his memory loss that denied Vince his dream fish.
Matt was over the moon, landing three of the biggest fish in his life, and he has vowed to return next low season, as he says where else could he go now for a PB? Butter Bean has been float fishing outside the restaurant, taking some good sized java barb, and for someone who did not fish before, the fella is getting into it now, which is surprising really considering he can’t eat them! As I am putting the finishing touches to this newsletter it is looking like the rains have at last come to an end, the skies are blue, it is 30 degrees, and the beer is cold.
Peacock has had to go and live in a shed to keep the old fella dry and warm, baby peacock is twice the size, growing faster than me, and that’s without Steve cooking his meals! As I was slowly creeping out into the lake, suddenly something brushed against my thigh, too close to the shriveled maggot for comfort.
Gollock has been netting for a week now, removing 100kg and hardly making a dent in the pesky things. So girls, instead of slagging off the professionals, get your own acts together, learn how to handle fish, and also how to fish and tie safe rigs, then you just may be allowed on the world class venues in Thailand – ‘nuff said! Along with the rohu they just seem to go off the feed in the rain, although the strange thing is we see plenty jumping. The other day we had the invasion of the hippies, and for a few minutes I thought I was at Glastonbury when Dutch man Pieter and his team of fire eaters came for a half day’s fishing and drinking – good lads and a good laugh. Then the phone call came in the form of a voice like in the old Tunes advert for a stuffy nose – none other than the crazy Brummie mad Mitch. I leaped into the air, Benz shrieked in horror, Butter Bean froze, but then a red tail surfaced, swam off, and I swear he was laughing to himself! After being home a month, poor young Mitch got homesick, needing rehab and a father figure, plus he was missing Miss Siam and he returned after only being away a few weeks.
After this minor setback the light was still flashing, so I silently swam out into the murky depths. Egg is coming to the rescue as soon as he can locate 100 3kg barramundi – now they will not only sort out the fry, but should grow rapidly on the abundance of food. Best arapaima went to Adam the stroke puller at 390lb and 380lb, as was the best Siamese carp, also to Adam at 70lb.
Angling Direct client David Sampson from some posh part of Manchester arrived for a week, taking 45 fish, the best being a 65lb red tail catfish and a 150lb arapaima. I must mention an American couple who came here for a day – Gil and Natalie – these two were fun! However the poor lad got lovesick, and after only fishing at odd times, even though he had a couple of arapaima plus several other fish, he disappeared in a cloud of roses off to meet his new in-laws in Isan, Northern Thailand. As I approached the ghost and made a grab for it, there pulsating in my hand was a damned great big water beetle the size of my thumb, with a luminous flashing green light, trying to attract Mrs. Vince stole the show with red tail catfish, landing three over 70 to 75lb, and he also annihilated by the sorubim, with 28 to 30lb. David fished hard, probably a lot of the time in the wrong places for too long, plus he caught the wettest week this year, but he thoroughly enjoyed his trip, and is planning a return trip.
Last heard of he was planting rice in the paddy fields, fishing for snake heads in the local ditch, and sleeping in his new top dollar tin hut!
Vince also took a rare wallago attu at 20lb, along with an arawana of 5lb, giving him the most species at eight – the others being Siamese carp, alligator gar, and two Asian red tails. Ghost solved, but still the police would not venture round to see it, and now in the village I am known as the exorcist! Natalie loved feeding the sorubim that patrol the margins looking for food, even getting them to feed from her hand. Our sorubim here have sussed the fact that anglers throw their old bait in the margins, giving them a free eat-as-much-as-you-like buffet!
