So long, farewell



Two of our long-time employees have left the club this month. We are sorry to say goodbye to Beverley and John. Beverley was here for 9 years and John for 10+. They were both hard working, great with the members, and an absolute joy to be around. We wish them all the luck in the world on their new endeavours and we will miss them both very much!

The Club will not be the same without them.

19th at the Met

 

The Metropolitan Golf Club welcomes Vanessa McNab, who is taking over the Met Bar as of this month, and the Halfway House starting in June! Vanessa is the proud owner of Con Brio Bistro in Vredehoek and has been a member with us going on 9 years.

We are excited to add her to the Met family and look forward to the future of the Met Bar!

Everyone wants forgiveness

 
The very best ball strikers too
 
The lower your handicap, the less space you have for error. So wouldn’t it be nice to have a little forgiveness built into your game? But, first we know you don’t want to compromise some key features:
 
 
The great news is that the hitting zone has been extended on many better 2018 and 2019 Players Iron models to accommodate slight miss-hits towards the heel or toe. Ball speed is protected, and the distance the ball will travel is unchanged. That’s a critical part of the accuracy a low handicap golfer must have.
 

 
Play the perfect partnership
Exploit the advantages technology is giving you, especially if you have little room for error in your round. But, don’t neglect the biggest advantage: Get fitted for a setup that makes it easier to hit the perfect golf shot.

Knock it down. Knock it close.

 
 
If we asked you to stand 20 metres from this bucket and use an under-arm throw to get a golf ball in the bucket, would you use a lower trajectory (a) or a higher trajectory (b)? 
 
 
Almost everyone correctly tackles this challenge by using a lower trajectory.
 
So why do most amateur golfers try and hit wedge shots as
high as possible?

 
Knock it close with your wedge
Watch the golf on TV and you’ll see Professionals hitting wedge shots mostly with a lower trajectory. They create a ton of spin. It makes it much easier for them to control distance. It makes it easier to be accurate. Time to learn a new skill?
