    The German tourist who died at Margate Country Club last week suffered a stroke while playing golf, according to his family.

    The cause of death of the golfer, identified as Gerhard Kramert, was determined by an autopsy, which according to his family, was carried out by a doctor recently.

    Kramert and his wife had been holidaying at the KZN south coast resort.

    At the time, SAPS confirmed that an inquest had been opened by local police and ruled out foulĀ  play.

    In a statement from the Kramert family, they noted that the cause of death was apoplexy (unconsciousness or incapacity resulting from a cerebral haemorrhage or stroke).

    ‘It is a great relief to us. Gerhard loved this golf course, he felt very much at home,’ his brother, Reinhold Kramert said.

    The country club issued a statement on their Facebook page.

    ‘It is with great sadness that we lost one of our valued overseas members, Mr Kramert. The family have been visiting Margate Country Club for the past few years and we have all become very fond of them. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Mr Kramert for their great loss,’ the club said.
