Zwartkop Clubs at Cost Program
We had such a good reaction to the promotion we did, which allowed members who had been members at Zwartkop for 5 or 10 years or more to buy golf equipment at our cost price. We have decided to extend the promotion to all members for the remainder of 2018.

We believe that by making the cost of equipment less expensive for our members, we are adding great value to your membership. As an example, if you buy a set of TaylorMade M4 irons, you would pay R14 999 at one of the big discounters. Our cost price and the price you pay is R11 640, plus we will trade in your old set at 70% of what we can sell them for. So you will save R3359 – and that’s just on the irons!

Contact Ian in the golf shop to assist you with this.

It’s May!
While the weather is glorious right now, it also means Winter Tee Times are now in effect with morning times from 06h45–08h13 & afternoon times from 10h45-12h45.

  From the Golf Course | Hollowtyning - 7th May
That’s right, we are hollowtyning next Monday. The good news is that we will be using the same process as last year, so the course will be playable immediately. We use a much smaller tyne so the holes are tiny compared to the previous way it was done.

Also remember your ball has a 50/50 chance of bumping into the hole as it does of bumping out!

We’ll have a video for you in next week’s newsletter on the hollowtyne process so we can answer your questions on how and why it gets done!

Mothers Day Lunch – Sun, 13th May
Next weekend is Mothers Day and we are putting on a scrumptious lunch with live music, which will be the perfect way for her – and the whole family - to unwind.

We’ll have a plated starter, buffet mains and dessert table for just R200 per person. Kids under-5 free & kids under-12 half price. Bookings essential so give Ina a call on (012) 654-1144 /


Boss of Bar – Thurs, 17th May
Get ready to party the following week!
Join the ladies from the Zwartkop Hair & Beauty Salon as they take a turn behind the bar in Boss of the Bar. It’s going to be a Mexican theme, so come down after your round or after work for a drink, a snack and some live music!

Let us help you play better golf

This week Elsabe looks at how your posture can help you get the ball up into the air consistently. This will help you to carry a water hazard like the one at the 7th hole. (click on image to watch)

First things first. One of our members that goes by the initials of DJ as already thrown two of his wedges into the river on the 13th after hitting poor shots. This past Saturday DJ duffed his second shot and once again attempted to throw his club into the river. His day was going so badly though that his throw never even reached the river!

Don’t be like DJ...

Make sure that you have your wedges custom fitted. To learn more about this please click here.

 This month, our focus is your score on the Par 3’s you play.
Let’s start that focus with some measurement.
 How many under or over Par were you
on the Par 3’s in your last round?

Start to make that a statistic you keep.

Keep your average score per round.

Make this a target for improvement.
Simple Tip #1

Tee the golf ball to the correct height to encourage consistency.
As well as tracking your score on Par 3’s, pay close attention to where your misses are.
Do they reflect the same challenges you have on all approach shots?
Improving your performance on Par 3’s will probably increase your enjoyment throughout the round.
Think about improvement. If we can help,
