Long time DGC member and member of the Super 16 Society Philip Le Roux has just received his colours for Western Province, (no not for golf yet he is a pretty good player and is normally a single figure golfer) for Body Boarding .

Philip also just recently won the Cape Classic 2017 and thus proving to the Western Province selection board that they made the correct choice.

Philip is off to Durban soon to represent WPBA in the Nationals. There is no stopping this guy, as he has another sport in which he competes (if you could call it that - I call it torture) he has been, and still is, a very successful competitor in the Iron Man Series (run, cycle, swim).


 



Durbanville GC does it again! See below a letter of thanks to DGC Club Captain Andre Wainwright:

Get started on a great journey!
It doesn't matter who you are and if you know something about golf or not. Our coaches will have a gameplan to get you into the game and show you how to have fun out on the course.

Contact us today to sign up.





1. In the case of any golf carts being used in an unauthorised manner on the course, first–time offenders will receive a warning, and if continuing to disobey the rules, their cart will be removed by the marshall on duty. (This latest decision taken by the committee as at 25th July 2017).

2. Remote bookings can still be made for a four ball by an individual member with other members of the club. However, for “guest-of-a-member” bookings, this will no longer be available or accepted on-line with immediate effect. This, due to abuse of this option, as per the committee, with thanks. (Members must call the proshop for this option).

3. Please Remember To Fill YOUR Divots & Repair YOUR Pitch Marks!

 
Please take a look at Chris Kitson’s latest Course Report for July. Interesting reading as always.

Cadge
Every time, Peter, the man next door headed toward Paul's house, Paul knew he was coming to borrow something, he was always doing so and it was driving him mad.

'Peter won't get away with it this time, 'muttered Paul to Liz, his wife, 'Watch this.'

'Er, I wonder if you' d be using your hedge trimmer this morning?' asked Paul the neighbour.

'Crikey, I'm terribly sorry, 'said Paul with a smug look, 'but the fact of the matter is, I'll be using it all day.'

'In that case, 'smiled Peter, 'you won't be using your golf clubs, mind if I borrow them?'







We took one of the brand’s #5 iron models and checked out the number of standard variations to the different components. The first one we looked at was an iron designed for the developing golfer. There were two shaft options, each with just two flexes.


The same brand, a better player’s iron, and there were 6 different shaft options, each with different flex options. Some shafts had 4 flex options, others had just 2. But just in shafts there were 15 different shaft options. Now add the lie angles and shaft length options and the number is huge.


If you’re looking to hit better approach shots, possibly one of the first questions you should ask is whether the configuration of your current iron set is making the game easier or more difficult.
In fact, why not start with an assessment of your swing and equipment?

I read that in a survey conducted in the United States at several golf clubs, it was revealed that less than 2% of golfers between a 20 and 5 handicap intended on having any coaching in the next 12 months. The attitudes to better golf were also interesting, especially across the age groups. I wonder what the view is at our club?


Don’t let another 12 months pass you by. Why not set out, at your pace, to become a better golfer, not for the trophies and awards, but for the pleasure there is every time you hit a good golf shot. Hitting more of those means it’s a better day. That journey starts with an Assessment. Call us now.
