The golf course was amazing over the Easter Weekend when you consider that one week before you could swim on ten fairways.

There is still some rubble on the course and the bunkers need new sand, as many of them were washed out. Thank goodness there was very little damage done to the course though. Once again, thank you to all the golf course staff for the hard work & extra effort they put in so we could be open for the Easter weekend.

Club Champs…
As you would have seen last week, we decided to postone Club Champs into May to ensure that you get to play on the best course possible.

The new dates will be: -
19th & 20th May is for the A Division (up to 9 handicap)
19th & 26th May is for the B (10-17 handicap) & C Divisions (18 handicap and over), Ladies & Seniors.

We apologise for the inconvenience – but the good news is that you now have a few extra weeks to get in some practice.

Click Here to download the Information & Entry form and make sure you mail us both the entry form and your proof of payment.

The Club Champs Rules are also attached for your information.

The top 16 gross scores in each Division will play in the Matchplay Championships – the date for this is still to be advised.


Sun, 15th April - Sunday Scramble
If you are looking for a fun way to end off the weekend, then join us for our Sunday Scramble on Sunday afternoon.

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!

Firstly well done to Ernest Ludick who won the 2017 Grand Slam Trophy Final on Saturday – he shot 77!
We wish him luck this week as he's playing in the SA Boys under 19 Championship at Woodhill. 

I’m sure all our members who played on Saturday noticed that we changed the competition from Medal to Multiplication Stableford. The reason for this was that the course was still extremely wet and if we had gone on with the medal you might still be out there today!

This week is my favourite major of the year, The Masters. As part of our Master’s promotion we have decided to do the following. We have 100 tickets up for grabs for those of you that purchase a sleeve of TaylorMade TP golf balls for R150. You then get to choose who you think will win The Masters and the winner will walk away with however many sleeves of golf balls have been bought for the draw.

If all 100 tickets are sold and we have 1 winner, you walk away with R15 000 worth of golf balls. If we have more than 1 winner, you will share the golf balls.

Product of the Week
As part of The Masters promotion - for this week only we will be selling all our adidas shirts at less 30%. This offer is available to all Zwartkop members.

Have you ever dusted your Driver face with a powder to record your strike pattern?
You should try it. It can be quite revealing and will probably underline why the advances
in 2017 and 2018 Driver faces have been so important.


Obviously for the 15 handicap and above, given their strike pattern, the improvements in shot consistency
from the new faces, will be quite dramatic. But, lower handicap golfers have less room for error,
so even small improvements make a dramatic impact.

The Cleveland HB Launcher Driver has a number of design features that promote a consistently higher launch,
but it also has some real innovation in the face and head design to accommodate your strike pattern.

We’d like to work with any golfer interested in playing more often.
We’re keen to make sure everyone of our golfers is on the fairway off the tee more often.

If you know a child between the ages of 6 and 13, do you want their sporting participation to be about
becoming an elite athlete, or do you really want them to have fun socializing while learning some
movement and balance skills? Let them try golf!


There’s a lot of evidence supporting the argument that we should make sure that enjoyment and a
multi-sport approach are fundamental to their early development.

As coaches we want children to be safe, to feel settled, comfortable and integrated with other children,
and of course to progress. But as well as progress, we need to provide them with the levels of enjoyment
and fulfilment that will keep them active, happy, and connected to a pastime that
will be very valuable to their life. 

Come and talk to us about the best way to introduce golf to your child
or how to develop their ability.
