Treat yourself!

When winter comes whirling in, we usually take cover under heavy jackets, woolly jerseys and duvets. The biggest challenge each morning is put one toe out of bed onto the freezing tile floor!

But winter can be fun, and warm, and snug. You just need the right people and the right setting!

Before winter properly sets in, make way for our Winter Special! This includes a bed & breakfast and a complimentary glass of red wine or gluhwein. Relax after dinner with a hot cup of coffee in the one hand and dessert in the other.

To book your winter retreat, call us on 051 871 4200 or info@blackmountainhotel.co.za.

Simplify your short game

Reap the rewards of great wedge play
Over the past three weeks, we have discussed the importance of great distance control in your wedge game and how it can help you lower your scores, improve your skills and get more from your golf. 
Create a wedge chart.
There are many advantages:
- Greater distance control
- Improved accuracy
- Better shot execution under pressure
- Added confidence from a variety of distances
- Less technical swing thoughts
- Better game management.
Armed with your wedge chart and your favourite distance with your favourite wedge, you’ll know where to lay-up if you can’t get to the green with your approach. That’s better game management. Every golfer, whatever their handicap, should have a wedge chart.
Fill your wedge chart
To gauge a distance for each of your swings for each wedge can be difficult without assistance. So why not book a session with us. Let’s complete your wedge chart and at the same time, we can look over your three swings. Maybe there are other improvements.

Better ball striking

You know you want it.
Too many golfers make poor contact with the ball with their irons because the low point of their swing is BEFORE the ball, resulting in fat or thin contact.
In the search for solid, quality ball striking you want to make contact with the ball, and then the turf. That requires a slightly descending blow or angle of attack.

What if I told you that one of the simple ways to improve your angle of attack on the ball, and therefore your ball striking is...
Yes, a towel!

You know your position at address and impact is different. The setup is exactly that. It’s the correct setup to allow you to make a great swing, returning to what is sometimes referred to as the ”stacked” position at impact. How do you look at impact? 

Improvement makes the game more fun
Whatever your level, a small improvement in ball striking quality, makes a BIG change in how much fun you have out on the golf course. It’s time for better.
