I would like to thank each and every member that participated in our member events over the last month. It is fantastic to see such a good turn out each week and how you support the club. We really do have the best members so thank you again. This Saturday is our annual Turkey Trot. If you need any information, please do not hesitate to contact Carmen or the guys in the pro shop.

When I think about everyday shopping it is very seldom that we get to deal with an out-and-out expert. I would like for you all to think about it for a second, when is the last time you dealt with someone that blew your socks off? We are very fortunate that our suppliers and PGA Professionals are experts in their respective fields. If you want to challenge me on this I am happy to book you into a fitting with any one of our suppliers and you will not regret it.

These guys are exceptional at finding the correct equipment that will suit your game. It will be unlike anything you experience anywhere else and that includes our bigger retailers down the road. Will you buy a new suit and not have it fitted? Or will you buy a pair of shoes without trying it on? So why should your golf clubs be any different? Not one of us swings the club the same so how can we use the same equipment? If you look at the picture you will see that there are three golfers that is a different size. That means these three golfers all swing the club in their own unique way, so how can their clubs be the same? All of them will have a different clubhead speed, lie angles and launch angle.

By custom fitting your clubs you can improve your game without making any swing changes.

Different builds, different swings, different needs

If you are looking to spoil yourself this Christmas the contact me here to book a fitting with one of our suppliers, I can guarantee that you will not regret it.

I mentioned our Handicap Committee to you in our last newsletter. I am happy to report that the team have been working hard behind the scenes. Please click on the two links below to find out what you can expect from them and how they will go about their business.

Hole more putts in 2018

Drive for show, putt for dough, meaning, a long drive (tee shot) impresses the gallery, but the guys who usually win the money are those who putt well. We all know that saying and deep down we know for that to be very true. I find it fascinating sometimes how golfers will spend more money or a driver or fairway wood then what they would on their putter.

  In store we have just taken stock of the new Odyssey O works range and they are gorgeous. They spend a lot of time on the putters face piece or insert as we know it. Making the ball roll better regardless of the player's stroke seems ambitious. But that's the idea behind this putter's elaborate face piece. A soft elastomer insert is fronted by a super-thin stainless-steel-mesh face insert. Tiny hinges contract at impact to launch putts with more topspin that will allow you to leave less putts short and give yourself more chances.

If you need to hole more putts in 2018, do not look any further. Contact us today to book a fitting with one of our experts.

It is never an easy task to say goodbye! In our lives it often happens that one have to say goodbye to places, people and things. Here I am, at the end of a 3 year working stint at De Zalze Golf Club and Swingfit. I stand in awe of what I learnt, the experience I gained and most of all, the people I met and friends I made. It has been a life changing experience, it has shaped and built my character to a point where I am now ready for the new season in my life.

Today I have a thankful heart. To each member, visitor and all the staff at De Zalze, you played a significant role in my adventure here, and I am forever grateful for that. You all enriched my life and I carry only beautiful memories from every encounter we had. I bid you farewell and may we meet again in the future, on the fairway or in life.

Shalom to you all and with all my love,

Guy Kleu tells us what's happening on the course. Watch the video below:

The day was very well attended, with tee-off times all booked out and the function room filled to capacity for the prizegiving dinner. There was a lively atmosphere on the Lounge Terrace for all the post golf actvities taking place there: Canapes and bubbly, live music and wine tasting and a challenging driving competition run by Galloway. Thank you to all our sponsors: SPW – Martin Schmulian; Spier Wines – table wines; Stellenbrau – beer gift packs; Leipzig Wines – tasting wines.

How many times are you playing a shot from 40 metres in, during 18 holes? For many golfers, it’s 14 times a round. For even the very best ball strikers, it will be more than you think. So control, greenside, is important to everyone.

That’s why SPINSKIN™ (a coating on the Z-Star, AD333 Tour and AD333 golf balls from Srixon) matters.

   The AD333 Tour is also a multi-layer golf ball,
reducing spin for the long clubs, and increasing
spin on the short clubs.
If you’re not already playing the AD333 Tour,
take the time; take a round; to experience
the golf ball with the most spin per Rand.

There’s a lot of advice recommending where your eyes should be positioned at address.
But, even with the perfect setup, you shouldn’t always believe your eyes.
