Meet the team

The Met welcomes Grace Nalovu to the admin team!


My name is Grace Nalovu and I am delighted to have joined the team at Metropolitan Golf Club on the 3rd of December 2019.

I relocated from JHB to Cape Town in 2016. My association with golf commenced at Observatory Golf Club, then I moved to Glendower Golf Club for a Happy 10 years.

Here I am now at Metropolitan Golf Club and I am looking forward to interacting with the members and staff for the duration of my time here.

Keep your kids active!

What matters most to you?

We asked you to rate 1 to 3 what’s the most important to you when you arrive at a golf club. That’s a very different question to surveys that ask you to rate experiences, facilities, and surveys, after your round. 
From this list, when you arrive at the entrance to a golf club ready to play 18 holes, what is the first, second and third most important priorities to you?

Everyone of those items is important. It’s not that anything can be neglected. But it’s quite interesting to think about what is the most important to you and how, whatever your answer is, we can do a better job, so that you get more satisfaction.
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

If you’ve followed this article series you’ll know we’re asking you to examine some of your basic skills. This week, we’re greenside and we’re unsympathetic. But first a recap of what we asked you measure over 4 rounds over the last 3 weeks.

How many fairways have you hit and missed? We asked you to check your final score and see how much of a link there was between this stat and your final score.
What was your average score on Par 3s where you could tee off with an iron? For those trying to break 90 and 85, these are opportunity holes.
We think that for those looking to get below 85 and 80, this is a really important stat to measure. What’s your average to hole out from within this range?
Now, you’re greenside (not in the bunker) within 20 yards of the green. We strongly believe every one of our golfers should be averaging 3 or under from here. 
If you’re not averaging under 3, then please come and see us. The proper technique for this shot is easy to teach. There are easy shots to save.
“Not all ‘20 yards’ are equal. It is much harder to up and down when your short sided. So improving your average is as much about missing on the right side
as technique.”
