Rest in Peace, Doc Oosthuizen
We hope you make that tee time up in the sky!

Zwartkop is saddened to hear that Doc Oosthuizen passed away on Tuesday. Doc, a renowned vet in the area, was also a legend here at Zwartkop. He was an Honourary Life Member, with over 40 years of membership under his belt. He will be missed by so many of the members and staff.

Vydhir Singh had this to say: 

“Rest in Peace Doc. Although I only had the pleasure of knowing you for just a short few years, you quickly become one of my favourite people I have known with your great humour and love for life. I hope that I can become just half of the true gentleman you were. You will be greatly missed by all of us at Zwartkop Country Club and the Saturday School will never be the same without you.”

That gives you time to brush up on your game and if you have any tweaks to sort out, get in touch with Elsabe – 082-922-8408 or Justin 082-925-0236 sooner, rather than later.

Are your clubs making the game harder?
Struggling with a fade or wild slice off the tee? Your driver shaft could be making it difficult for you to square the club face at impact.
Do you fear the prospect of hitting a long iron on your approach? Playing with the right lie angle helps to improve accuracy and ball striking with your irons.
Are you using one wedge for all shots within 50 metres? Having several types of wedge bounce and grind at your disposal will help you get up and down in fewer shots.
A better playing experience
Once we know your game and club setup, we’ll advise you on simple changes you can make to transform your golfing experience. Golf should be a joy, not a struggle. Let’s talk about your game.

Golf can enrich childhood
Golf courses are safe environments that offer children exercise, friendship, learning, accomplishments and fun. It’s a place where they can make positive memories and connections for life.
Our lives have become fast-paced and disconnected. Saturated with screens and information. For our children, it’s only going to get more hectic and pressured. Let's encourage them to spend time away from that pressure and more connected with friends and the outdoors.
Give them the gift of golf
If you have a child or grandchild, getting them into golf could be the greatest gift. If you’d like to know more about junior golf opportunities, then please,
