Springboks Rock!


The clubhouse really rocked with the final of the World Cup of Rugby. It was packed and the gees atmosphere was just amazing. It was so exciting and great for South Africa.

Sheena and I were away on leave where I was very fortunate to get in some golf at Leopard Creek. It was good to see a lot of Southbroom regulars there. What a magnificent place it is. The Pros will be there soon to play in the Alfred Dunhill  Championship 28 Nov - 1st Dec.

It will be really interesting to watch how they tackle the new grass and the small, but very good changes. This week is the Nedbank at Sun City and it looks amazing.

Course update

Thanks Richard B for this great pic of 3rd green taken this week. The Greens are looking fabulous and running so well!

We have had so much rain over the last 10 days so we are rather wet, but through it all the course drins well, looks stunning and is playing very nicely. We should be great for the season.

Village news

Our condolences to Dr Stephen Stewart and the family and many friends and patients of  Dr John Stewart who sadly passed away on Thursday 14 November after a long illness. Dr John treated so many Southbroomers over the years and will be sadly missed.
Here he is pictured with his beloved wife who passed away just 6 months ago. Rest in Peace John.
 Great news!
Cemair has resumed flights to Margate on the 8th November.

Cemair management told eHowzit that the initial resumed schedule would start off with flights both ways on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and that daily flights would commence as from 4 December to cater for the holiday season. Depending on demand, there would then be more than one flight per day both ways. Cemair has recommitted itself to serve the South Coast Community which it regards as its prime priority.

It referred eHowzit to a statement issued on 18 October giving perspective on why the popular service was suspended causing serious disruption and inconvenience. Cemair pointed out that it had been extremely unfairly treated by the CAA, as confirmed by the CAA’s appeal committee. Click here to read the full article.

You’ve come this far,
now get closer

Easier shot placement
Every green is different. Size, slope, hardness, and flag location vary. Having added access to spin makes hitting your chosen spot on the green a lot easier.

The new Cleveland CBX 2 Wedge face has been created to give everyday golfers access to Tour-level spin.

More stopping power
14-foot difference
Rollout has been measured on a wedge that played 125 rounds versus a new wedge. The results showed that a fresh wedge can give you up to 14 feet more stopping power than an old one.
Stick it to the flag
At the end of a round, take your wedges to the practice green and check your shot dispersion.

Groove upon groove upon groove
Cleveland has layered their sharpest Tour Zip Grooves ever to give the CBX 2 Wedge a 4th generation Rotex Face, and give you easier access to added spin and control.
Are you a wedge wizard?
Better players want full spin when executing demanding open-face shots, and they want it from a more compact wedge design. For these players, there is the Cleveland RTX 4 Wedge.

Playing with an old wedge?
You could be selling yourself short. With today’s equipment even having a great wedge technique doesn’t mean you’re accessing all the spin and control you could be. Bring your wedges to the practice green with us, and let’s see where you are.

Fix par 3 mistakes

Many golfers base their approach to a par 3 on the ideal shot shape and then try to hit that shot. But using your natural shot shape to your advantage will help you hit more par 3 greens.
If you know you tend to push the ball a little with a slight fade, you can count on aiming slightly left of your target on the green, instead of trying to force a straight shot or draw.
Don’t use hazards as markers to aim because if you do hit it dead straight, you’re probably going to drop shots.
From the tee, identify the most dangerous hazard. Then think about how your natural shot shape pulls you into those hazards or helps you evade them. By understanding your swing you can set yourself up to minimise risk and hit the green more often.

Better course management
Swing improvement takes time, but good strategy brings immediate results. We’ll help you make better decisions on the golf course that will put you into more scoring positions.
