Kathryn Mcintyre is getting in the swing of things

Kathryn has been working extremely hard on her swing with Matt. This has included stretching and strengthening exercises and the end result from last week was night and day. Although it's still early days and untested on the course, just look at how much more range of motion Kathryn now has in her swing!

If you would like to improve your swing just like Kathryn, do not hesitate to contact us.

Improve your game

Our Titleist Fitting Day is full but stay tuned for the next date… and updates on how it went.

Ladies clinic
Tuesday 1:30pm

Chipping is the topic and Matt is inviting as many of our ladies as possible to a clinic on how to best practice this skill.

He is going to cover not only the ‘how to’ but explain the best way to learn and retain these skills in the fastest possible way.

The goal…. More fun & less frustration on the course!

With Dirk Oberholster

It is now 6 weeks since Ben and Dean have taken over the course.

The course presentation has completely transformed during this short space of time. Well done to them! A big shout out to the ‘Bulldog’ Mcloud he has worked like a trojan during this time along with Carlton, Roadie, Grant, Moka and others.

The 9th and 2nd tees will be ready for play in the next couple of weeks. A huge thank you to Peter Crowley and Glen Jonas with organising sponsorship metal for our course paths.

Thankyou to Avoca lime and Dicksons Quarries for their contribution.

With spring now here we need some men and ladies to assist with prettying up our gardens around the course. Please lease with Matt in the shop or Bruce McLoud.

Anyone with suggestions please come forward your always welcome but make sure your a part of the solution! The culture and attitude around the course has changed so much for the better over the last 6 weeks, let's continue to go from strength to strength.

Kind regards,
Dirk Oberholster

Fitting for approach shot magic

You’ve hit a #6 or even #5 iron shot into the green. When it lands, is it landing hot or soft? Are you going to hold the green?
A club fitting is more than just allowing you to hit the ball further and more accurately. We want to find iron technology that will help you hit iron shots that hit the green and stop.
Especially with your mid irons we want to be able to launch the ball on a good trajectory. We want you to be able to attack the green, or, if you’re a better player, the flag. We all know that back spin helps to stop the ball as it lands. But spin, along with launch angle is also going to influence the descent angle into the green for better stopping power.

Now improve your approach
Book an assessment with us now. Let us look at your swing and technique; your irons and how the technology helps you. Let us improve the three dimensions above. Improve these and it increases the number of magical moments on the course.
