The heavy rains have obviously been devastating for us and for the other golf courses around us.

You can be rest assured that our team will be working flat out to get the course playable as soon as is humanly possibly. Take a look at the pictures of the flood and you will see how much silt they have to clean off the tees, fairways and greens – a tough job.


Just take a look at the before & after of the 8th green and you will see how much work is entailed in the clean-up process.
We will keep you posted on the progress

Putting Competition…
Join us today between 16h00–18h00 and have a shot at sinking four putts in a row to win a driver! Pay R50, get a free beer and if you sink a 3-foot; 4-foot; 5-foot and 10-foot putt you will take home a brand new driver!

The very second person to have a go yesterday afternoon, sank all four putts and won himself a Taylormade M2 Driver! Fantastic job Whillem Loots! (see picture below)

It's also Pizza Night tonight so why not bring the family down and stay for pizza! The kids can make their own pizza’s and we’ll have live music tonight!

Unfortunately we were closed this past weekend due to some really heavy rainfall. On the positive side, we have two long weekends coming up with plenty of fantastic weather ahead and we will be working like trojans to get the course re-opened for play.

We will have some great competitions over Easter, so make sure you call the golf shop to book your tee off times.

The new TaylorMade M4 driver has been the best selling driver this year. TaylorMade will replenish stock at the beginning of the month, so those of who are waiting for stock shouldn’t have to wait much longer!

You probably know how hard it is to find the short stuff from the tee box.
It’s fine margins at impact, so there’s an easy way to improve.


The experts continually tell us that without a good setup it’s almost impossible to hit a good golf shot.
They also note how little attention regular golfers pay to their setup. So let’s change that.
You’ve all got your smartphone. Let’s get those pictures taken!

 

 
Have a friend take a photo of you at address on the range. Check your alignment.
Check your posture and your tilt. How do your arms hang? Are you reaching or too cramped?

 

 
From face-on, check your width of stance; your ball-and-hand position; and your weight distribution.
Is your right shoulder (right-handers) lower than your left or are they level? What should they be?

If you want to hit more consistent golf shots, with cleaner, crisper contact, with the swing path and
face angle ensuring contact square to the target line, then invest some time into your setup.


If you send us the two pictures from the angles shown above, then we’ll gladly respond with some quick thoughts.
If you want us to take the photos and walk you through where you immediately can improve your setup, and therefore the quality of your golf shots, then
