Greetings from your DGC Team | Bringing your club closer
Monday, 15 July 2019

Wishing Ayden Senger every success for the 11th Italian International Under 16 Championships, to be held at the Biella Golf Club, Italy from 5th to 7th September ’17. Play well! Representing S.A.

Two errant shots resulting in bogeys ultimately cost Somerset West’s Jason Hale the opportunity to win his second Premier Amateur Tour Event (PAT).

Sitting at four-under-par on his 12th hole, Jason couldn’t hold on to his three-shot lead and had to settle for second place 70-72 (142), behind winner Elton James at the Erinvale Open held on Sunday.

For once the weather wasn’t the topic of conversation at Sunday’s Erinvale PAT Open.

With the greens running fast, and not much wind Westlake’s Elton James holed out for a birdie on the par 4, 18th to win the Erinvale Open by one shot – 72-69 (141).

Trailing Jason Hale by three shots on the 16th, a well-timed eagle meant Elton James was back in the running – he was now only one shot behind with two holes to play.

A bogey at the par 4, 17th was cancelled out when James found the 18th green with his 9-iron second shot to within 3 metres – the one putt secured the win.

Strand’s Gideon van der Vyver 75-70 and Deon Germishuys 71-74, with De Zalze’s Johann Oosthuizen 70-75, finished tied third on 145.

This was ideal preparation for James as he heads up the WP team to participate in the Premier Inter-Provincial to be played at Bryanston Country Club, Johannesburg on
18-22 September 2017.

Congratulations to Hideki Matsuyama on his victory in the World Golf Championship. Just 61 shots with his Srixon Z-STAR in his final round. What a way to win.

If you watched this on TV you’d have noticed the huge driving distances. McIlroy hit every tee shot beyond 280 metres. He was often beyond 350 metres but couldn’t control the spin on his (very short) approach shots. On the Par 5 16th Bruce Koepka drove it 360 metres off the tee. Charlie Hoffman was through the back of the 550 metres+ 16th in 2. Matsuyama hits it a long way, but the difference was his ability to hit the green, often close, and sink the putts.

Someone else with more control of the ball on the short shots, In-Kyung Kim, won the Women’s British Open. Kim isn’t long off the tee, but she’s deadly with the wedge. This was also a nice story of resilience. Five years ago, she missed a 14-inch putt for the Kraft Nabisco and her first Major. She missed, and then lost the play-off. Now she can call herself a Major winner.

Let us help you drive for show and putt for dough. Get in touch.

5th & 6th holes

• Add a new bunker behind the existing right hand bunker at around 240m. This will create more risk and reward if one wants to try and cut the corner.
• Improve the visibility of both bunkers with support mounding that extends into the rough on the right to prevent balls rolling down the hard rough towards the green.
• Plant more trees down the right to accentuate the new fairway line.
• Close the existing left-hand bunker.
• Add a new bunker down the left to catch the inaccurate big hitters at around 255m off the middle of the 5th tee.
• Ensure good visibility of this bunker off the tee with support mounding.
• Plant additional trees around this area to create more definition.
• Move and shape the fairway left around 15m after the new fairway bunker.
• Move and shape the fairway down the right, left by around 15m.
• Grow the grass around the approach bunker to make it fall within the rough to narrow the approach to the green a bit.

We feel the changes would completely transform these two holes and make them far more interesting to play, no matter what the wind direction.

14th fairway - The proposed new bunker

• Join the seniors and ladies tee into one big tee that is lower to improve fairway bunker visibility.
• Plant more trees down the left of the fairway before the fairway bunkers to encourage shots away from fairtrees.
• Move the fairway line right before the fairway bunkers.
• Make the existing fairway bunkers as visible as possible and perhaps more intimidating.
• Grow the rough down the left mounds as long as possible.
• Do some tree trimming down the right of the fairway to widen the fairway where possible and encourage shots down the right.
• The two existing trees in the fairway should be surrounded by long grasses that split the fairway in two with an option to go left or right.
• Create a bigger wetland area out of the existing sluit that separates the 6th green from the fairway.
• This wetland should be enlarged up the left of the fairway and up to the left of the green.
• The wetland should have a fairly flat base to allow for slow water movement and good plant retention.
• Pockets of low lying areas can be created that hold water all year round.
• This sluit is fed by a flush valve that could be opened once or twice a week.
• A new cart path will need to be constructed down the left of this wetland to allow access to the 7th tee cart path.

Have a wonderful day!

One beautiful spring day Angus Campbell headed out for an afternoon of golf. Standing on the green the Scott asked the boy standing beside him, "Are ye my caddie for today?" "Aye," answered the boy. "Are ye good in finding lost balls?" "Oh yes sir, I find every lost ball!" "Okay, boy, then run and search for one, then we can start!"

Shaft facts for all golfers: Spin Rate
We have switched shafts on the same #6 Iron for a golfer and seen the spin rate climb by over 2000rpm. That will have a material impact on the distance the golf ball will carry.
