I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our members back. I wish you all the very best for 2018, I hope that this year will be one of low rounds, more birdies and more fun on the course with your friends and family.

This could be you in 2018
I am sure when you look back on a golfing year there are a few rounds that stand out, and then there are those that you would like to forget. Why don't we make 2018 a year to remember? With the correct advice and guidance from the experts we can help you to play better golf. We always look at touring professionals, thinking: Wow these guys are good! We are quick to forget that even the touring professionals take advice from a group of experts. All of them have someone who looks after their swing, health and equipment.

My suggestion to you is that we take a look at your equipment. There many ways for you to benefit from modern technology, without having to make a single change to your swing.

Having modern equipment fitted to your own specifications is a massive step towards better golf in 2018. I am not saying you need to replace your current set, many of you can benefit by just having your grip thickness checked. I still find it hard to believe that someone will buy a set of clubs off the rack without having it fitted.

Everyone has at least one shot that spoils the card or round too often. Normally it is the tee shot on a long Par 4, where the approach shot often required a long iron or hybrid. Imagine hitting that perfect shot more often on that's a nice thought, isn't it?

Take a minute to complete the survey and give us the feedback we need to help you with your game.

Let It Be - A tribute to The Beatles

Quiz night
We would like to invite you to join us for a fun quiz night, also on Friday 19 January, which will commence just after the Sundowner at 19h00.

Everyone has at least one hole that
spoils the card or round too often.

If it’s a long Par 4, for most of us,
it’s usually not the tee shot that causes us the challenge.

The approach shot often requires a long iron / hybrid.

Imagine you’ve hit the perfect shot.
Now just three simple questions.

Operation 36: A shot to Master

If your handicap is 15 or above, then review your performance and technique on this shot.
It’s the short-pitch shot (between 15 - 50 metres). For most golfers, a 27 - 55 metre shot.
If you’re taking 3 or less to get down from here, every time, then your handicap should be dropping.
It’s worth investing some time and effort into improving and practising your technique.
