Everyone loves the Met!


This past week a well known golf influencer from the United States, Erik Anders Lang, visited our course and had nothing but great things to say about our wonderful facility.

"Rocked up to @metropolitan_golf_club with no warning and the staff and members were so welcoming, joined us for a round, and spoke to us about the local golf scene. "The Met" is an 18 hole course with 14 smooth and fast bent greens and 9 fairways, all fit within the Atlantic Coast and the shadow of Cape Town stadium. The stadium was erected in 2009 for the 2010 World Cup, changing the layout of the course. The membership here is exactly what you look for in a local club - filled with diverse players of all ages and the course easily plays as a quick five hole routing. Honestly, felt right at home here. Check it out you're nearby absolutely."

For someone who plays on some of the best courses around the world for a living, we are thrilled to hear that our course ranks among the best of them!

The Floral Cup

 
Golfing for a great cause
 
8 September 2019
 

Attention ladies! The Prins and Prins Diamonds Floral Cup is just around the corner and you do not want to miss it! I had the pleasure of playing last year and it was such a beautiful day in support of Pikkewyntjies Pre-Primary School in Bettys Bay. There were heartfelt speeches as well as a beautiful song sang by the school children to thank the golfers. Prins and Prins Diamonds sponsors beautiful tanzanite jewelry for prizes and little angel brooches that the ladies go crazy for!

Please contact the club and join us on the 8th of September for a fun filled day on and off the course!

Cape Met 2nd League

Below find an exerpt from the Cape Peninsula Golf Club's newsletter. We are extremely proud to be associated with the wondeful club!

What a historical occasion. For the first time, a combined team comprising players of CPGC and Metropolitan, stepped out in the WP 2nd league. Three of our players, Ebrahim Osmond, Mike Mayesa (home) and Edmund Francis (away) were part of the team.

The team couldn't have asked for a better start, winning their game 7-1

You guys have made us proud!!!

A big thank you to Clive, Farrell (Met) and all others involved, for putting this merger of our clubs together for this league.


Our players involved were Lihan van der Merwe, Craig Smith, Chris van Rensburg, Strati Zitianellis and Dean Myburg

Spin: friend or foe?

 
This impacts better players too
 
Last week we showed how many golfers have a simple swing fault that is robbing them of 21 metres. They strike their tee shots with a slightly descending blow (just 5°) rather than a slightly ascending blow.
 
 
One of the characteristics of better players is a better swing, but it's also often a faster swing speed. However, when we look at most of our better golfers, while they don’t strike the ball on the tee with a descending blow, they’re often "neutral", so even for them, the distance they’re being robbed of is substantial.
 
 

 
Don’t let spin rob you

It’s time to do something

 
This is wrong, let's reverse the trend
 
Between 2002 and 2012, the incidence of type-2 diabetes in children increased by 5% according to research done for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Further research indicates that we can expect to see an even faster acceleration by 2022.
 
 
 
You might think that golf isn’t a sport or activity that burns the most calories. You might think that there are more intense sports. But you’ll struggle to find a sport that gives a child so much.
 

 
We know golf is good for children
If you have a child or grandchild, then let’s get them started playing golf. We’ll make it fun and enjoyable, social, and active. We want them to be healthier for their whole life. We want them to have those 5 years back. It’s time to do something.
