On the first tee with Trevor

Marie Ferrari groet Bloemfontein!

Marie du Toit (85), alombekende en geliefde golfer, groet Bloemfontein na sewentien jaar as lid by Bloemfontein Golfklub!

Die skoonveld en setperke gaan leeg wees sonder die legende wat ook n kampvegter vir vroue golfers was. Sy was n stigterslid van die Bultfontein en Senekal golfbane en het destyds aan Rapport geskryf oor die nie-toelating van vroue golfers op plattelandse bane. Dit het gelei tot n ommeswaai en vandag versier vroue golfbane oor die Vrystaatse platteland heen.

Marie se bynaam het ontstaan toe vroue golfers saam met wie sy gereeld op Tempe gespeel het, haar elektries aangedrewe golfkarretjie aangeskakel het as sy doenig was met die spel. Die golfkarretjie het dan vorentoe beweeg en moes sy hardloop om hom te vang voordat daar moles was - tot groot vermaak van die ander in die vierbal!

Sy verhuis na Bultfontein om nader aan haar kinders te wees en sê dat sy nie gereed is om haar golfskoene op te hang nie. Sy gaan steeds golf speel op Bultfontein en nooi almal om aan te doen vir n kuiertjie.

Ons groet die Vrystaat se oudste vroue golfer! Tot weersiens, Ferrari!

The new Srixon Z-STAR Golf Ball

We said this was a golf ball that was beyond expectation. If you want everything (soft, fast, far, spin, durability, and now add stability in the wind) then the Srixon Z-STAR Series is your golf ball. Beyond expectation is one week, three tours, three wins, one golf ball. J.B. Holmes (PGA Tour), Ryan Fox (European Tour) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (Senior Tour) all won last week using the new Srixon Z-STAR Series Golf Balls.

Make it your business to try the new Z-STAR this week. Whether it's your fourball or the club competition, the winner’s circle awaits. Call us in the shop.

Feel the thrill

Enjoy some speed
There’s no getting away from the fact that speed matters.
But the great news is that the smallest increase, translates into lots of distance.
And the even better news is that the smallest changes can create greater speed increases than you thought possible.
Increasing your clubhead speed by
just 1mph adds 2mph to
ball speed, and that results
in 4 extra metres.
Just look at how many ways we can add to your clubhead speed:

We’re delivering thrills

One week, three Tours

How good could you be?

A reason to stay connected
This might be one of the most compelling reasons to practice together with at least one friend.
If you’ve set out on a “Deliberate Practice Plan” to acquire a new skill or master a particular shot, then you need feedback. Get someone to video your swing. Now you can observe your setup, swing, and focus on the new movement you’re after. We might think we’re making a full shoulder turn, but what does the evidence show us?
You need someone to share a drink with
Getting friends to practice, provides the opportunity for fun competition, feedback, and a shared experience afterward. We’d be happy to help make your sessions as productive as possible with some extra advice and feedback.
