The Denis Hutchinson Tribute Tour with Dale Hayes

15th August 2019

The “Voice of Golf” Denis Hutchinson and Dale Hayes, invite you to enjoy 18 Holes of golf, and an evening with them as they discuss their long involvement in this wonderful game.

It’s 60 years since Denis won the SA Open at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington, beating Gary Player by one shot. Hutch was still an amateur and remains the last amateur to win the SA Open. Bloemfontein golf Club will host this event on Thursday the 15th of August.

Bookings will open shortly, contact Trevor or Janke on 051/ 447 0906 for more information.

Winter is coming...

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.

 Join in on the fun

Families who golf together, stay together

Pack in your whole family for a grand day out on the course every Sunday!

Who's the lucky winner?

The next draw will take place on the 7th June 2019. The draw will be worth R 600.

Riaan Potas won the 6 x Stella Artois beers last Friday. Albert van Eck missed out on the R 600.

Could you save 5 shots per round?

A simple test to benchmark your putting setup
The jury is out on this one. The evidence shows that, if one is more important than the other, then it’s marginal. We think this myth has come about as the industry tries to educate golfers that weight is very important. And it is.
If the angle of your putter
face is just 2° out at impact then,
even from just 6 feet you’re
going to miss.
If you miss most putts in the 6 – 12 foot range then the chances are you have a face angle challenge. For most, that problem starts at the address position. Benchmark your skill level:

Get a check-up
Improving your ability to square the putter face at impact will take up to 5 shots off your scorecard. There are some simple keys to that improvement. So come and see us.
