Club Champs…
The Frank Edward Palmer Ball Trophy has been buffed, the golf course is ready for action – all we are missing is you!

Club Champs gets underway on Saturday with all divisions being represented. The A-Division will be concluded on Sunday, while the B, C, Ladies and Seniors will play their second round next Saturday. Keep in mind that the top 16 gross scores in each Division will play in the Matchplay Championships on 23rd & 24th June.

We wish you the very best of luck, but most importantly, we hope you meet some new members, make friends and have fun!

We’d like to thank all the sponsors including our regular large sponsor, to whom we are most grateful. In addition we’d like to thank The Biltong Shoppe; Srixon & Volvik.

You have until tomorrow to enter and can click here to download the Information & Entry form. Make sure you mail us both the entry form and your proof of payment. The Club Champs Rules are also attached for your information.

The draw will be announced on Thursday.

Keep this stored in your memory bank…
We have been advised by Golf RSA that they will be issuing all golfers with a new Handicap Card during June.

This new look card will replace the existing grey SRIXON SAGA handicap card that is currently in circulation. Please bear this in mind so that you collect your new card as soon as we let you know that they have arrived at the Club. The old cards will be deactivated on 31st August 2018.

Boss of the Bar – Thurs, 17th May
Join us this Thursday after work or golf, when the ladies from the Zwartkop Hair & Beauty Salon will be behind the bar. It’s a Mexican theme with drinks and snacks to match, so wear your sombrero and come and enjoy the live music!

Srixon have developed and evolved a proprietary SpinSkin technology.
The cover of the golf ball has a skin that literally allows the grooves of your club face to grip the ball.
That creates additional friction and MORE SPIN.


Those looking for tour
with leading spin rates?
Tour performance for
moderate swing speeds.
The most spin for your money? 
A 2-pce ball with SpinSkin has
distance AND great greenside performance.

If you haven’t played a Srixon golf ball with SpinSkin technology, then give it a try.
Practice around the greenside. Feel the ball remain on the face for longer.
Notice how much extra spin you can create.

We’re two weeks in to some simple advice on how to improve your
scorecard using the Par 3 holes. They’re an opportunity for everyone.
Removing risk helps.

Simple Tip #3
Where’s the easiest and safest target? Before you even look for the flag,
find the point on the green that gives you the largest room for error.

In this example, even going over the back of the target area marked will leave
you a chip and putt for a 3, so you’re looking at a 4 at worst. Go at the flag and the
consequences of a miss could be much greater. Even if you fly the flag and land in the bunker,
you’re then faced with a bunker shot back towards water. Going at the flag is a 2 or bust!

You’ll be faced with a course management challenge on all approach shots,
not just Par 3’s. Try playing a round where you take a ‘safety first’ approach to every shot.
Check out your score. Is it an improvement if you play within yourself?
Course management is an important part of your game; if you’d be interested
in an accompanied round to help with your course management,
