Dale Hayes Charity Golf Day
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you - we had our best ever Charity Golf Day this year!

We are happy to announce that we will be able to increase the amount we pay over to the Lions Club Centurion Lifestyle each month by 50%. They will receive R7500 per month (R90, 000 for the year) from Zwartkop. In addition we are able to give a 50% bursary to a student to attend the Golf Management Campus.

The day was made very special by the attendance of Denis Hutchinson, two Sunshine Tour players, Titch Moore and Wallie Coetzee, who played with the Isuzu team, and 14 time World Boxing Champion, Brian Mitchell.

Well done to Ian, Joseph, Adam and especially Sharon who organized the day and to Zak Steyn, a terrific country & western singer, who entertained us on the night.

Finally, a massive thanks to all our corporates who participated, gave us auction items and prizes. We could not have done it without you!

Sunday Scramble
We’ve had a request from some of our members to start a Sunday afternoon Scramble. We will have the first one on Sun, 8th April and it will be open to ALL golfers. The entry fee will be the normal greenfee plus competition fee. The handicap of the team will be the four handicaps added together and then divided by 5. Fractions will count! Please book tee off times for your four-ball by calling the golf shop on (012) 654-2111. Adam and Dale will team up with two others and any team that beats their nett score will get two free pizza’s after golf!

Veg Garden to Table right here at Zwartkop!

Well done to Zwartkop Catering on their superb veggie garden which has started to bear fruit. They’ve started to serve us their fresh, homegrown and organic vegies and salads – yummy!

Let us help you play better golf…

Dale’s Charity Day was a really big deal, but it was almost dwarfed by the news of the launch of the new TaylorMade M3 and M4 product.

Never have we ever had so much hype when it comes to the launch of new product. Twist Face technology has been on the lips of everyone in the golfing industry for the past month or so and the Pro’s have never been this excited.

If you would like to learn hit the ball straighter than you ever have, then click here for a personal custom fit. And remember that as a valued Zwartkop Country Club member, you automatically get a 10% discount (even on the hottest equipment in golf).

Saturday’s Competition was rained out so prize giving was done via a lucky-draw. The following players need to collect their vouchers from the Golf Shop – C. Delport, K. Naidoo, N. Westraad, F. Ellis and I. Hasse.

Product of the Week
This week only – the new release Zwartkop Logo’d Ahead Shirts at less 15%.

Last week we highlighted how, in the Launcher CBX Irons, Cleveland have brought together
metalwood innovation (distance & forgiveness) and Wedge leadership (control & precision).


If you try the Launcher CBX Irons you’ll notice the distance and forgiveness in especially the mid and longer Irons.

Face Cup Technology means that the face can
flex right to the edges. That will preserve ball
speed and launch when you strike the ball low
on the face, or towards the heel or toe.
The Irons have a lower profile as they get
longer, creating a progressively lower and
deeper CoG. The idea is to make your longer
irons as easy to launch as a Hybrid.


We think that hitting great mid and longer iron approach shots is an exhilarating feeling.
We think hitting precise shorter approaches, even from the light rough, provides real fulfillment out on the course.
We want to upgrade as many golfers’ approach shots as possible this year.
Right fitted equipment or a better swing or both.

We’re challenging all golfers who shoot in the 90’s or even above, to start a journey to better golf.
To target a score in the 80’s every time. Last week we kicked off a month of tips.
If you missed last week you can

Try taking out of your bag,
the clubs you can’t use consistently from the fairway, even if that
leaves you with just your #7,
#8 and #9 Irons and Wedges. Remove the temptation.
Now what did you score?

If your #7 Iron is the longest club that you can use consistently, then set yourself a
target to improve your #6 Iron. You’re looking to get to the level where you never badly hook or
slice your shots and, on at least 85% of the time, you’re hitting it within 10 metres of your target distance.
Don’t struggle hour after hour without any sign of improvement though. Let us help.
