Slow play

Check out this list from the European Tour’s guide to its players on slow play, which is something we should all follow.

Things a player can do to help:

• Be aware of your position with regard to the group in front.
• If you feel that your group is falling behind, advise your fellow-competitors.
• If your group is behind, try to catch up as soon as possible.
• Play a provisional ball whenever there is doubt as to where the ball is lying ‘through the green’.
• Do not wait until it is your turn to play before putting your glove on.
• Do not wait until it is your turn to play before calculating your yardage, or wind direction.
• Look at your own line of putt while your fellow competitors look at theirs (within the bounds of normal etiquette).
• Do not concern yourself with the group behind
• Forty seconds is a long time in which to hit a golf shot – if preparations take place before it becomes your turn to play, you will not have to rush your shot whatsoever.
• Be ready to play when it is your turn to play.

Cold days. Warm hearts.

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.

Genetic engineering

Exploiting your DNA
You are what you are (swing speed), and you have what you have (driver), but when it comes to your launch DNA, we’re the genetic experts you want to consult.
 What if we didn’t have to change your swing speed or your driver to add 10, 20, and even more metres to your tee shot?

By finding ways, with your current swing speed and driver, to influence your launch angle and spin rate we can make a dramatic difference to your performance off the tee. For each of you, we can find a tee height, ball position at address, and angle of attack on the ball that can fundamentally change your launch DNA.

Challenge us, challenge yourself
Come and spend 30 minutes with us and let's see how we can modify your launch DNA to deliver performance you didn’t dream you were capable of.
