This week’s Heros…

Congratulations to Malik Ebrahim on winning the 4th Quarter Junior Order of Merit.

It’s wonderful to hear about the good work that our coaches and Golf Management Students have been doing.

From Lily Reich at the SA Disabled Golf Association…

What an awesome time we had at the Deaf Junior Interschools last week. The children loved every minute of it and we are extremely proud to say that your children from TransOranje School are doing awesome.
We must thank Coach Justin Godfrey and Curtley Roberts who are doing a great job of coaching these children and instilling our life skills which is an integral part of our program.

The GMC students have been amazing and offered to help wherever they could as well as sending two coaches (Thean Fourie & Ceanon van Aardt) to the week of the Interschools as some coaches could not make the week. They were both awesome and extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

Also to Dale and his team for the sponsorship, loan clubs, pencils, balls, pitch forks and everything that they always help us with whenever we need. GNGU - Thank you so much for believing in us and supporting us. It means so much to so many.

A career in golf


What matters most to you?

We asked a question.
Do you see golf as a social, recreational activity OR a competitive sport? That invites one more question about your hopes.
Answer now >

If you followed the link, you’ll see that it's quite an interesting question. I’ve seen the summary of the priorities from six other clubs. It will be good to see how we line up.

Rembember, you can remain as anonymous as you  like. I would be interested to know who you are, but please don't enter your name if you don't feel comfortable doing so.

It’s a fun question
If you skipped the link above, then please know that it’s quite a thought-provoking question. It’s a what’s most important? A 1 – 2 – 3 question.

Think about your golf


We’ve asked you to look at 4 particular stats. In week one of the conversation we wanted you to track fairways hit and then in week two we talked about average par 3 score.

Now let’s measure your ability to control distance with the wedge. Over 4 rounds, measure the average number of shots it takes you to hole out from the 90 to 40-metre range.
Every time you get within 90 to 40-metres of the green you’re trying to control distance on some sort of wedge shot. Most of you will have this shot 7 or 8 times per round. The difference between averaging 4 shots and 3 shots is therefore 7 to 8 strokes on your scorecard.
“Depending on your handicap, set yourself a target. Start by getting under 4, then attempt to get below 3.5 and then set off trying to reach 3. Practice really pays off with this skill.”
