ASSUPOL Grand Slam Open Trophy
This weekend is the Open Championship, which means it’s time for our third ASSUPOL Grand Slam Trophy event of the year. Zaheer Alli won the Masters edition and Ian Carty won the US Open, so there are only two more to go – the Open and the US PGA, before we play off for the actual Grand Slam Trophy!

Take action! Inspire change! Make every day a Mandela Day!
Yes, tomorrow is officially Mandela Day, but we are tremendously proud of the staff at Zwartkop & Zwartkop Catering who dived headfirst into some charitable work yesterday instead.

After an early morning fun team-building activity which fortunately warmed us all up, some staff went off to help out at  Doves Nest a sanctuary for abandoned kids in Lyttelton, where they painted and fixed up the wendy house in which the orphans carers stay.

The rest of the staff embarked on making masses of soup which will be delivered to Badirammogo, an Old Age Home in Olievenhoutsbosch, as well as Peanut Butter sandwiches, which have been delivered to the Rethabile Educare Centre, also in Olievenhoutsbosch. We also embarked on a pilot river project using old plastic bottles, which we will be testing in our river as a rubbish catcher!

On behalf of the Hayes family we’d like to thank to everyone for their enthusiasm and we hope that all our members will be doing their bit too, as every little bit really does help.

Special thanks to Tribake for sponsoring pies for the staff while they worked and to Aquavita for keeping everyone hydrated!

To help you find the perfect partner for you on the putting green, we’ve highlighted the importance
of matching balance to your putting stroke; and then ensuring the visual appeal is right BEFORE we get to a fitting.
But now we need to look at the length of the perfect partner for you.

Two putting styles, same golfer, two Putter lengths required. The style on the left is a pendulum style,
while the one on the right has the stroke controlled by the left shoulder and elbow.
What if I told you that many, not some but many, golfers are playing with a Putter too
long to encourage the proper rotation and therefore can’t square the face at impact?
Making sure your Putter length suits your putting style, setup and size will allow you to make a 
technically sound putting stroke and to repeat it time after time.
That doesn’t just lower your scorecard, it brings you the thrill of more Putts that drop.


If you’ve already shown the athletic ability to get to 90 or threaten that score,
then it’s highly likely that we can help you improve your swing quickly to the point that you’re in the low 80’s.
The question is how quickly and easily?


If that’s a golf experience that appeals to you, then please don’t wait.
Start the journey to hitting even better golf shots.
