We had good reason to celebrate

Divots make 500th Saturday Game

On Saturday 31st August, it marked a milestone achievement for the Divots group. It was their 500th Saturday Divots games.

This is a unbelievable achievement as they have been going since Ebotse opened.

The group originally started with Vic Langkilde and is currently managed by Kevin Venter.

Thanks to the Divots for their continuous support over the many years, and from all of us at Ebotse Links, we wish you many more happy golfing moments to come.


We hosted the Pros

PGA Central Gauteng Regional 2X2 Championships

On Monday and Tuesday we held the PGA Regional Championships here at Ebotse Links.

As a PGA Member, we get asked to tender for these events. As we held the National tournament last year May, I thought it would be great to host the regional event this year.

After tendering, we were given the opportunity to host the event.

38 Local PGA Members of the Central Gauteng area and 38 amateur entered, and it was a great 2 days of championship conditions at Ebotse Links.

Their was some good scoring by the Pros over the 2 days:
Well Done to Ivano Ficalbi (CEO of the PGA of South Africa), for a solid 2 days of really great golf.
Ivano managed to shoot 65 (-6) and 70 (-1) for a total of 135 (-7) for the 2 days.

A big thanks to Birchwood for sponsoring the event, and for looking after all the players each day on the 1st tee box.

Thank you must go to all the staff at Ebotse Links a job well done, as we have only received great feedback for the event.

Fitting for approach shot magic

We want you to evolve your thinking about your approach shots. Get more demanding about the results you want. Work with us on improving your performance.
Let’s start with what you should demand from the partnership that is your swing and your irons.
Adding distance means you're playing a shorter club. That means literally a shorter length club. That makes it easier to square the club face and launch the ball high and with accuracy.
Squaring the face to target and squaring the sole to the ground at impact means you’ll hit more shots tighter to the target. Technique is important. Fitting is imperative. Yes, fitting is imperative to accuracy.
Once your approach hits the green you want stopping power. That requires spin and an angle of descent that means the ball will sit. So, you want technology in your iron that launches your ball on a great trajectory.

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.

Fall in love with golf

We’re not trying to create the next great tour superstar. We’re trying to help junior golfers fall in love with the game of golf.

If we can do that, they’ll be healthier, happier, and have a game and friends for a lifetime.

 Whether they’ve played the game before, play the game now, or have never played the game, we’ll promise you that we’ll take care of them, and set them on the pathway to a lifelong love affair with the game.
Sign your children up for one of our fun junior golf programmes.
