We will always look after your golf game first

As golfers we are actually so spoiled with choice when looking to purchase hardware. Currently you can go with TaylorMade and twist face or you can go Rogue with Callaway. There probably will not be much to choose between these two great brands. It will ultimately come down to you and how the clubs and shaft responds to your golf swing. If we look at 25 years ago, technology was very average and golfers had very little choice. The only way to improve your short game was to go for a chipping lesson and not by buying the new Vokey SM 7 wedge. We have so much to choose from and therefore have to be careful of the advice we sometimes get or take from people. We all know that golfer who is quick to give advice and come Club Championship weekend, they struggle to break 90 themselves.

Please rather come and chat to us when you look to purchase equipment. Our promise to you is that we will always look after your golf game first. It might take a day or two extra to get the clubs you ordered, at least you will have peace that the investment you made will be good for your game. Our prices are actually very competitive and we do sell the Rogue driver for cheaper than our friends in Somerset West.

Find out if you're getting robbed of distance - Wednesday, 7 March 2018
Next week Wednesday our members will be able to go Rogue at the Callaway Demo Day. Matt Biggs and Riaan Spanenberg from Callaway will be on hand to help you add 10 metres to your tee shots. Riaan is probably the best custom fitter in the country. We are very fortunate to have him here for the day so please make sure you come down and take advantage of this unbelievable opportunity. Let me know here if you would like to add 10 metres to your tee shot.

Easier distance, easier accuracy, easier golf - 2 March 2018

XXIO will be joining us at the club on 2 March 2018 from 10:00 - 15:00. This is your chance to try out their gamechanging equipment will help you hit it longer and more accurate.

Only 5 slots available. Book your spot here.

18 February - Sundowner & Friday Nights Live
As always our The Sundowner 9 Holes was ‘n roaring success. Thank you to our sponsors for supporting us: Ernie Els Wines, Redz Properies, Stellenbrau and Marlon from Titleist, who presented a fun activation on the terrace with Swingfit. For the first time we had a hole-in-one: congratulations to the two golfers who achieved this!

The Friday Nights Live is also back, with live music and a live draw as well. The draw was not won, which means the R1000 rolls over to next month: join us on the next evening and stand a chance to win R2000 in the live draw! We are using various live music artists to see which of these are most popular. Jennifer Nel and her guitarist partner were really good. Make sure to book for the next Sundowner on 23 March!

Our Swingfit Academy is more than just an elite performance academy. Yes, we do have our PGA and Elite programmes for those perusing a career in golf, whether it is playing on tour or working within the industry.

However, we are also extremely passionate about growing the game and helping the everyday golfer improve. We have created programmes to help do just that!

“The Bunnies”
Our Bunnies programme is ideal for ladies who is new to the game or looking to start playing. We will help you understand and improve in a stress-free, easy-going & social environment for only R100 per session. No clubs, no problem, we have you sorted. The “bunnies” gather every Wednesday & Friday at 8am to 9am and is usually followed by some coffee on the clubhouse stoep.

Why not start your own group with your girlfriends (a minimum of 5 ladies) and choose a time that works for you? Click here to sign up.

Improvement session summarized in 60 seconds
Click to watch

Most golfers are looking for equipment that will make the game a little easier,
allowing them to experience the real joy of a good golf shot more often.


Where would your game most benefit from an improvement?
Do you need to get the ball in play more often, with the added
bonus of being further down the fairway? Or would you enjoy hitting
a longer Iron knowing it’s likely to land on target, converting more
tee shots into good scores? Why not start with an assessment with us?


Have we inspired those of you shooting above 90, to target 89 or less on every occasion this year?
How much better is 16 bogeys and 2 pars (on any Par 72), than what you have to
live with if you’re shooting 95 or higher? So our final tip:

How many 3-putts do you have to suffer each round? Most inexperienced golfers’ cards will reveal 3 or more 3-putts each round. Remove those and you’re 3 shots (or more) closer to 89. So here are two suggestions:

Most 3-putts have, at their root, a poor first putt. Sometimes it’s a poor read.
Sometimes, poor contact. But mostly, less experienced golfers suffer with poor control of speed and distance.
So let’s fix it.

Understanding what will happen in the last feet of the putt will not only lead to more great putts that drop,
it should also leave you with a little thought: an easier 2nd putt.

Every golfer can become a wizard of the greens. There are skills that everyone can learn.
You’ll be amazed at the impact it will have on your scorecard.
