We love this line – “Golf is a game of randomness – not equity”. That’s exactly why we should NOT have preferred lies. When you hear a golfer whinge about his lie on the fairway, smile to yourself and say –
“Golf was never meant to be fair!”

Will the Joker elude us again?
We are super excited that the Jokers Wild Draw is sitting at R21 600 – and that’s before we add on this Friday’s takings…Someday soon someone is going to be very happy when they get to pocket all that loot…
Rupert went home with just under R1000 on Friday, but was unsuccessful when it came to finding the joker. So it lives to see another Friday!

Join us for cocktails and live music and the Jokers Wild Card Draw will get started at 18h30.

Chris Delport's Captain's Corner

ZCC 1 topped the log after the 6 Round Robin matches in the Senior Scratch League. They have thus made it through to the finals on Saturday – good luck!

ZCC 2 beat Services 1 4-0 and lost to Blue Valley 3-1 at Blue Valley. Well done to Corne Basson who shot a 68 and won both his games.

The Zwartkop Men’s Handicap ZCC 2 team lost 1.5 to 2.5 against Blair Atholl away. The result of three draws and one loss was a first as all their games needed to go to the last hole to get a result!

The Par 3 Advantage

Become a master of the Par 3s
Just 150 metres from the flag.  You can place the ball on a tee, creating the perfect lie. This is an opportunity to put a low number on your card. For many, it’s the chance for a net birdie. So what goes wrong?
 We see four very common challenges. If you suffer from these, then they’re easy to overcome.

Club selection Ball position
Most of you choose a club which, if struck perfectly,
gets to the flag. As a minimum choose a club which,
if hit perfectly, gets you to the back of the green.
We see a lot of golfers tee the ball up 
awfully high when using an iron. You should
be  trying to create the perfect lie.
Game management Technique
Put the ball in the fat of the green
away from trouble, and you have more
room for error. Don’t go flag hunting
when the risk of a 5 or worse is staring at you.
We still see a lot of long irons in bags.
They’re tough to hit consistently. But many of those
who’ve converted to hybrids have never had
a lesson to learn the technique with this club.

Make Par 3 improvement a priority
What improvement would make a difference to your Par 3 scorecard?
We want to help make you a Par 3 Master.
