Specs:

Available in white and yellow.

Callaway aimed to make a ball that’s easier to hit and fun to play for high-handicap and slower-swinging golfers. They are legal for play .

The Supersoft Magna was designed for higher-handicap players who struggle to make consistent contact and hit solid shots. It has the same weight as other balls because its core materials are less dense, but its larger size creates more drag, which can rob players of distance. Golfers who would consider playing a Magna - older players, junior golfers, etc.

Golfers with fast swings and who typically make solid contact will lose distance if they play a Supersoft Magna.

Don't Play It Too Safe


Calculated risk = Reward

Sometimes when you play too safe with one shot, you set yourself up for an extremely difficult and dangerous next shot. For example, if you're too cautious off the tee with a 2-iron when you should have used a 3-wood, you effectively change the next shot's degree of difficulty. Along those same lines, if you're aggressive on the front end of your plan, make sure you're aggressive on the back end (unless circumstances suddenly change).

It's foolish to play safe and then, on a whim, go for broke.

Father's Day

Arabella had a Father’s Day with loads of fun activities organised for the whole family. André was there and led the putting and chipping section for the day, joined by Etienne. What a beautiful day!

 

Junior Clinics

André continues with the Junior clinics every Tuesday and Thursday. Pick and choose what days work best for you and enjoy the world class coaching that André offers to all our youngsters.


Get golf fit!

If being on the course when the weather is not playing along is not for you, you can still work on your fitness, an essential element for playing golf. André is passionate about fitness and you can book a gym session with him as part of an Arabella member. You won’t regret it!

Could you save 5 shots per round?

 
Fraction of an inch and a matter of degrees
 
If you want to be a better putter; to become deadly within 12 feet; then become a fanatic about your setup and posture at address.
 
Remember, if your face angle is just 2° out, from just 6 feet you’re already going to miss. Every one of you can invest some effort into setting up with the putter face square to the target line.

 

A setup with your eyes inside, or outside the golf ball, makes it much more difficult to aim correctly. That might mean you’re square to the wrong target line. 

Most putters are 35“ in length and that leads many golfers to stand too upright forcing their eyes inside the line of the ball.

Improving your ability to square the putter face at impact will likely take up to 5 shots off your scorecard. There are some simple keys to that improvement. Setup and putter are part of that equation. So come and see us.

Enjoy the journey

 
Golf and fitness have a lot of similarities especially when it comes to reaching for goals. For instance most people will describe their fitness goal as something like: “I want to lose weight”. But, for most, “losing weight” isn’t enough motivation to either start, or complete the journey.
 
 
 
You need to think through WHY you want to lose weight. What is the emotional experience you want to enjoy or pain you want to remove by losing weight. If you want to travel the journey to less weight that’s what you need to connect to.
 
It’s the same with golf.
Lowering your handicap is rarely enough motivation to be better.
Why would you want to be better?
What joy would you like to experience?
What pain would you like to remove?
