Well done to this week’s hero, Aadil Kalla…

Aadil broke 100 for the first time last Sunday, achieving his goal for the year! He’s had to adjust his goalpost and is now working towards breaking 90. Well done Aadil!

Aadil is having private lessons with our Head Teaching Professional, Elsabe Hefer, who is confident that he could break 90 before the end of the year.

Elsabe can help you to have more fun out on the course too. Just give her a call on 082-922-8408.

Group Golf lessons

We have a variety of classes available for both junior and adult golfers. It’s a fun way to get into golf or to improve your game – and you get to meet new people at the same time!

Lie angles…

Last Saturday Joseph and Ian did lie-angle testing out on the course. It was interesting that most of the people they tested were hitting out of the toe, so their lie-angles are too flat. This causes a left to right ball shot, which diminishes distance. If this sounds like you, chat to any of our PGA professionals and they will do a quick test to check your lie angles.

Can you beat Johan?

This week Johan will be challenging you out on the 17th hole . Buy a sleeve of Srixon AD333s off him for just R100, and if you get your shot nearer to the pin than he does, we will give you another sleeve for FREE!

What are you buying?

There is something exquisite about finding the sweet spot with an iron. Everything feels so perfect in that moment.
Achieving that moment requires, returning the clubface square to the target with the sole square to the turf. That’s very difficult if the lie angle / shaft length combination is wrong for you.
Over 80% of golfers play with equipment that makes it more difficult to experience the perfect iron shot. You can change your experience. You can make more magic.

You can do this
Let’s get your irons checked. Let’s help you make sure you have a setup that makes it easier to create more magical moments. Come and see us. Call us, or

Consistently better

From the top, which part of your body initiates the downswing? Many get into a good position at the top, but then allow the
downswing to start with their arms or even hands.
This is a good position. A downswing started
with the arms.
You want accuracy and consistency of ball strike with approach shots. That is much, much easier to achieve if the large muscles control your first movement back to the ball.

Easy to say, harder to do
Male golfers especially are conditioned to try and hit the ball with their arms and hands. I want all of you to take an #8 iron, get out on the range, hit balls, and to try and quieten your arms and hands. Try consciously hitting the ball with your “body” rotation. Notice how much more solid you can strike the ball. Practise this.
