Member Loyalty Offer

Don’t forget to take us up on our Loyalty Offer if you have been a longtime member at Zwartkop.

• If you have been a member of Zwartkop for between 5 and 10 years you are entitled to a once-off purchase of any single golf club at our Cost Price.
• If you have been a member of Zwartkop for 10 or more years, you are entitled to a once-off purchase of a full set of clubs at our cost price. This could be a saving of as much as R10,000.00 - or even more!

Remember that six of the Top 10 players on the PGA Tour this year are using clubs that weren’t on the marklet six months ago. Surely that is proof that golf equipment is now better than previous models.

The offer above is available until the end of April.

Love was definitely in the air!
Thank you so much to Zwartkop Catering and to all of you for a fabulous Valentine's evening. The weather was just perfect, the food was really good, the ambience was unbeatable and the music was fantastic. What more could you ask for?

Thurs, 1st March Wine Tasting with Louis 57 Wines
The wines are named after Louis Oosthuizen’s momentous achievement on the Mossel Bay Golf Course when he scored a 57 – the lowest ever score recorded on the course. Each Louis57 Wine is an outstanding combination of exceptional quality and balance.

Louis57 Wines are made by the father and son team, Jacques and Reenen Borman. Jacques Borman was the wine maker at La Motte for 25 years, after which, he developed the Rupert & Rothschild International wine label. Reenen joined his dad on this venture and last year shot the lights out with his 98-pointer Boschkloof Epilogue. He is making some of the most exciting wines in South Africa at the moment.

Bookings for the wine tasting are essential - call Ina on

50-Yard Challenge - Fri. 2nd March
Make sure you stick this in your Diary. Friday the 2nd March we have our first 50 yard challenge. We are looking for members who would like to improve their short game and especially from 10 yards in. This is normally that tricky shot that most of us battle with, yet if played correctly will improve your golf and lower your handicap.

The challenge will start at 5pm. The cost is R300 per person which includes a T-shirt, a sleeve of Titleist Prov1 balls and a new Titleist Vokey SM7 wedge for Nearest to the Pin from 50 yards. Joe and I will also be part of the challenge. We have limited space so please make sure you click here to book.

We would also just like to congratulate Marko Anderson who won the GNGU Junior event that they had at Zwartkop a couple weeks ago. Well done Marko and keep up the great golf.

Range Balls
Please take note of the use of Range Balls on the Driving Range.

As mentioned earler, six out of the current top ten golfers in the world are playing with equipment that was brought to market less than 6 months ago. The reason for this is quite simple. The equipment that has just been released makes the game easier - it's as simple as that.

If you would like to improve your golf make sure you
contact us to try the latest equipment. If you are a member at Zwartkop you get a 10% discount even on the latest product, so make sure you chat to us.
Sunday Scramble
Just a reminder that the Sunday Scramble will kick off on Sun, 8th April. The entry fee will be the normal greenfee plus competition fee and the handicap of the team will be the four handicaps added together and then divided by 5. Fractions will count! Call the golf shop to book your team on (012) 654-2111. Beat Adam and Dale’s teams net score & you will get 2 free pizza’s after golf!

Cleveland have brought metalwood forgiveness and distance to the Cleveland Launcher CBX Irons.
They’ve also brought short game precision.

You’re looking for consistently solid contact, and a ball flight that is less vulnerable to debris and water.

As in the Cleveland Wedges, the
sweet spot is moved more central to the face
(face balancing). You’ll find the
hitting zone more frequently.
Tour zip grooves then create a more
consistent spin on the golf ball
even in light rough
and / or wet conditions. 
 And, as you’d expect from the leading Wedge designers,
a sole design that works more effectively
with the turf at contact.

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.
The right fitted equipment or a better swing or both.


If you’re shooting above 89 on most visits to the golf course, then now is the time to make a leap.
In the last two weeks we’ve provided two tips for those looking to break 90 every round.
Both of those tips have been linked to keeping the ball in play. But the fact is that, if you’re a
regular or inexperienced golfer, then you will rarely be hitting greens in regulation. So…

On almost every hole you’ll have a 10-to-50-metre final shot into the green. This is a shot you should perfect so that you never take more than 3 to get down. Getting up and down in 2 is a bonus.

Three suggestions:
Learn a good short pitch shot and chipping technique.
Practise your short pitch shots and chipping. Never get greedy
(make sure you’re on the green before worrying about how close).


If you’ve never had a pitching / chipping lesson, and you’re not Breaking 90 on each visit to the course,
then we’re betting this is an area where you can make up shots. If you don’t have a technique or ability
to get down in 3 or less every time from within 50 metres, then
