We were really hoping we’d have at least one hole-in-one on the 12th Hole over the Festive period. Well to be fair we did have one – by Ziyaad Rabaney on Sunday, 30th December, but unfortunately he hadn’t taken on the Hole-in-One Challenge and therefore didn’t win a 10-year membership to Zwartkop valued at R200,000.00 – ouch!

There were daily Nearest-the-Pins prizes on the 12th over the same period with the intention that if there was no Hole-in-One, then the Closest to the Pin over this whole period would win a Tag Heuer watch valued at R25,000.

That prize has gone to Chris Dixon – well done Chris! Check out the video of him being given his prize.

Our thanks to everyone that participated in the Hole-in-One Challenge – we hope you had fun!

The Jokers Wild Draw pot is standing at R10 435!
Congrats to Raymond Seeber who won Friday’s Lucky Draw but sadly he did not pick the Jokers Card. We now have 39 potential cards remaining under which you can still find the elusive Joker!

We serve cocktails and have live music every Friday and the Jokers Wild Card Draw gets done at 18:30.

Revealing the lie

The key to accuracy is flawed
We suspect that you all realise that the lie angle on your irons is of paramount importance to your
ability to hit solid and accurate approach shots.
You may even have read the research that reveals that for every 1° your lie angle is
too flat or upright, you’ll be 10 feet wide of the target with a perfectly hit #5 iron.
So you’d appreciate why we’re alarmed by some research we did ourselves.
The standard lie angle for different brands is different!
That’s right, the first three models we checked (all game improvement models)  from three different brands,
all had different standard lie angles! That means you might be standard with one
model and 1° upright with another. 
Every purchase needs a fitting
No one should buy golf equipment (any golf club)  without a fitting. As this research shows,
even for the most important component of an iron; the part that controls accuracy; it’s critical
to get fitted for your swing AND the model being selected.
Make it easier to hit better golf shots.

The best for you

Why make this journey?

We want to help as many of you as possible find new levels  of joy and fulfillment from your golf.
Experience that sweet moment, when you make perfect contact and the ball flies high and long,
and you know why you come back again.

We want more smiles. More times that you follow your shot and think “How cool is that!”.
More moments of joy. More causes for celebration.
If inconsistent ball striking
blights your game
let us improve your ability to make solid,
square contact.
Get a better experience
What would cause you to smile more often on the golf course? What would give you cause for celebration?
If “greater consistency” of ball striking will help deliver a smile or celebration,
