Dear All Members,

We would like to thank you for your support over the year of 2017. We wish you a happy 2018, and may this be a good year for all of you.

Ebotse Links will be turning 10 this year, as the club opened in 2008.
Its currently ranked 32nd in South Africa, as voted by the Complete Golfer in 2016. We look forward to the new rankings to come out later this year. We are hoping that we climb up several spots and crack the top 30 in the country.

In May we will be hosting the annual Professinal Golfers Association (PGA) Championships. This is all the PGA Professionals from all over the country that work at several golf clubs. So it’s a good opportunity to show them what Ebotse links is all abou!

The U19 Inter-provincial was played at East London Golf Club in December and we are proud to announce that the EGU U19 team won the tournament for the 1st time in over 30 years. We had 4 juniors represent the team - Jordan Burnand (Captain), Jayden Schaper, Warwick Purchase and Ryan Van Velzen. Congratulations guys!

The Mid-Am Team played in the final on the 9th December against Kempton Park at Royal Oak. The team beat Kempton Park in a very close game.

As you all may know, we have taken over the Halfway House and Coffee Shop. It has been an interesting month, but a good month. We thought we would share some figures with you:

There were around 2800 golfers that played at Ebotse Links over the festive season with around 800 golf carts that went out.

We sold 3200 bottles of liquor from the halfway house/coffee shop, with the best seller at 1180 bottles to Castle Lite, and its closest competitor was Klippies & Cola on 489 bottles.

For the healthier golfers, there were 908 bottles of water consumed in the hot festive days.

coffees were drunk by the early birds.

A total of 1133 Burgers, 912 toasted saamies, 41 breakfast buns and 405 1 tee & 2 tee breakfasts were devoured.

There was only 400 rounds difference between members and visitors rounds played, so we wish to thank all our members for their support over the festive season.

111 members took the opportunity on the “Pay it up special” in December, which means 555 rounds will be comped in the next couple months.

16 New Members have joined the club, as 5 members have resigned.

We would like to welcome all the new members, and for those who are leaving us, we wish you all the best on your future endeavours.

Everyone has at least one hole that
spoils the card or round too often.

If it’s a long Par 4, for most of us,
it’s usually not the tee shot that causes us the challenge.

The approach shot often requires a long iron / hybrid.

Imagine you’ve hit the perfect shot.
Now just three simple questions.

Operation 36: A shot to Master

If your handicap is 15 or above, then review your performance and technique on this shot.
It’s the short-pitch shot (between 15 - 50 metres). For most golfers, a 27 - 55 metre shot.
If you’re taking 3 or less to get down from here, every time, then your handicap should be dropping.
It’s worth investing some time and effort into improving and practising your technique.
