  Sunday’s Scramble was great fun!

What a blast! It took the Americans to invent a new version of golf that almost guarantees you never have to play out of trouble – Scramble!

Adam, Fritz, Dale and Vydir put out a challenge to all members – beat their score and they would buy you a pizza after golf. They shot 61 gross & less their handicaps their score was 52,8. Unbeatable – or so they thought!

They were however beaten by two teams, including young Ruan Oosthuizen and Markus Kruger!

It was great fun and the next event is going to take place on Sun, 3rd June where we will combine the Otway & Glenn Hayes Mixed with our Sunday Scramble  challenge.

Adam, Ian and their choice of two lady partners will throw down the challenge with two pizza’s up for grabs after golf. If you lose to them, then sorry - you have to buy your own! There’s still the Mixed Trophy up for grabs though, and prizes, so make sure you diarise the date!

The lions Club Centurion Lifestyle: -

“The golf day by the LCCL on Monday 13th to raise funds for their many community service projects in Centurion was a great success. The weather played ball despite the likelihood of rain. According to Lions Club President Ryno Olivier and the convenor of the golf day it was a really great event that was enjoyed by everyone that participated and should raise some R40 000 for community service projects in the larger Centurion area. He also gave thanks and appreciation to the ZCC for their support on the day to help make it a brilliant event.”

Cheers to ZCC and the Lions Club of Centurion Lifestyle by Lions Marion Fowler, Louise Coetzee, Jannie Coetzee and Lions Club President Ryno Olivier

Most golfers would benefit from a slightly higher launch and less spin on their tee shots.
The Launcher HB, as its name suggests, is designed to get the ball onto a higher and longer ball flight.
But that’s only part of the story.

Absurd ball speed from everywhere
The whole head is designed to flex along
with the face. That allows maximum
COR (or spring) to be delivered from
a much larger area.
Faster from everywhere
The added forgiveness is exaggerated further
by how the face cup is used to join the face
to the head. That allows the area towards
the edges to flex and offers spring
and ball speed.


We’ve been talking about the radical improvements in face technology and how they help your golf game.
If you want to challenge your performance off the tee, then now is the time to come and see us.


Some children can go on to be elite golfers. Some children may develop a competitive instinct.
Some children may get real social and personal value out of participating with friends.
That’s why in the pathway of golf, there are two very large parts of the plan
we should never ignore for your child.

Whether it’s introducing golf to your child, helping them master the fundamentals,
or taking them to new levels of expertise, we want to help. Come and talk to us about the best way to
introduce golf to your child or how to develop their ability.
