Dear Members, Clients & Friends,

Last week I was privileged enough to attend the bi-annual PGA Coaching Conference held at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club. This was a great experience for me and I've come back with a heavy head full of new knowledge which I can't wait to share with you!

Some updates from the driving range now - as mentioned before, the protective net at the back-end of the range is complete, should you still be carrying the ball over the net, please come to see me for a lesson on hitting it shorter! New is our "Wall of Success" where you could soon feature, and the "Information Wall", depicted below. For those of you who don't see the driving range very often, I thought it best to share the information with you as well and maybe you can make a point of visiting us soon!

Firstly, here is a photo of our excellent range team, which is doing its best to meet all your range requirements. As mentioned before, the balls can now also be purchased at the range kiosk. It will not be long before you can also pay for lessons and a wider range of refreshments/snacks at the range as well. You are also welcome to use your membership card to receive the standard discount on your purchases of any catering products as you would at the other point of sales.


Service with a smile - from left: Simo Ntebane, Giradot

This wall will grow yet!

Below then appears the latest success story and three bits of information, I will publish the rest in my next section. Take note about the Range Membership options - it is a great way to get someone into golf should you have family members or friends who are looking to start. Consider it a great "first membership" of the club, after which the person can move up to the next membership level if they wish or not, and so forth. Simply click on the posters to enlarge them.

 

Have a great weekend and enjoy your golf. I am headed to the slightly warmer shores of KZN for the weekend to join my sister and her family visiting from the USA, they are in love with our country already!

Remember, should you not be enjoying your golf for whatever reason, don't hesitate contacting me so that we can make you enjoy it more again!

Did you enjoy watching Tiger in the hunt on Sunday? Koepka bombing drives down the middle of the fairway? Next year you could be there to witness the action at Beth Page Black in Farmingdale New York!

All you have to do is buy a raffle ticket and stand a chance to win a trip for four golfers to the 2019 PGA Championship in the USA. It includes return flights on Delta Airlines and 7 nights’ accommodation. On top of that you get to play 2 rounds of golf in the area, and it includes access to the PGA Championship Wannamaker Hospitality Center and tickets to all 4 days. Even better, you will also get the opportunity to play the Black course on the Monday after the Championship round.

The tickets are R1000 each and all money raised will be donated to the South African Golf Development Board. Click here to buy your tickets. T&Cs apply.
 

You could drive a car with the seat in the incorrect position. But you wouldn’t. You adjust the seat to fit your specification. Even an inexperienced driver makes this change. Driving is easier.
 
 
Now, you’re going to rotate a golf club with a very small head around your body,
and try and deliver it back to make contact with an even smaller golf ball,
so that it travels down a target line. Surely that challenge needs you to
“adjust your seat” with a golf club that fits.
 
 
 

This is a ‘no-brainer’. Every golfer should play with golf equipment that makes it easy to repeat a golf swing;
that brings the club face back to the ball; square to the target line. Inexperienced and learning? Make it easier. Improving and aspiring? Make it easier. Good and competitive? Make it easier. 


 

 
   
For anyone taking up golf, it can seem intimidating.
Stand on any tee, next time you’re going round, and imagine you’re thirty something
and you’ve had your first 3 lessons. Yes, after just three lessons you’re facing 400 metres,
bunkers, trees and water. We want to change that.
 
   
 
   
We want to introduce more people to the game. We want them to gain enjoyment from the game immediately.
One way to do that, is to get out on the golf course and play 9 (or even just 6) holes from 50 metres in.
It’s the equivalent of the ‘bunny slopes’ in Switzerland. 
 
   
 
   
 

For anyone who’s learning, or is less-skilled / experienced, playing golf from the tees can limit the enjoyment.
If you’re playing with family or friends for enjoyment, then setup the game so that they can tackle challenges
they can accomplish, at least some of the time.
