Dear Homeowners, Members, and Guests,

I am very excited to report that our pump station has been refurbished and is now running at full capacity. We always look at a golf course and its beauty and often compare to our lawn at home, thinking it must be as easy as pulling a lawn mower through on Saturday morning, but there is so much more that goes into keeping the course in the great shape it consistently is. The pump station can be compared to the heart of the human body - as the heart of the course it is responsible for the irrigation of the whole golf course, making sure that all areas get watered in regular intervals, and ensuring an evenly green and healthy golf course.

We now have two submersible pumps and one jockey pump, allowing us to irrigate with multiple sprinklers at the same time. The entire system is automatic and set for all areas to get an equal amount of water. We are also able to terminate certain areas if needed, for instance, areas which may still be saturated from previous rainfall, or where drainage is a bit slower. The upgrade will make a noticeable difference on the course, and we look forward to a warm summer.

 



The SA Kids Golf Junior Africa Challenge was yet again a huge success! I would like to thank our homeowners and volunteers for their hard work and dedication; we couldn’t host this event without your assistance and we thank you for your time, we really appreciate it!

Golf quote of the week


"The difference between golf and government is that in golf you can't improve your lie." ~ George Deukmejian

"If I hit it right, it's a slice. If I hit it left, it's a hook. If I hit it straight, it's a miracle." ~ Author Unknown

 
 
If you’re playing with a driver over 5 years old, then the opportunity for us to
add huge distance is on the table. Manufacturers no longer have to compromise
between forgiveness and other performance features. The result of lower spin for instance,
can be added distance and less deviation offline. There’s a win.
 

 
 

 
Never mind the 36 extra metres, the tee shots were straighter.
Bringing down spin also reduces the amount of deviation in ball flight.
 
 
There’s a Driver DNA – ball speed, launch angle, & spin rate. We need to match those when fitting you for a Driver.
How close is your Driver to your Launch DNA now? Do you have 20 metres or more of performance in the right DNA?
Come and see us. Let’s unlock your potential to thrill.
 
 
To lower your scoring, you must be a confident greenside player.
Without using your bounce it is difficult to make consistent contact to build that confidence.
Different coaches will teach different chipping techniques to different golfers,
depending on skill level and how much time they have to perfect their technique.

 
 
A ‘classic’ approach is to take up a stance with the hands forward and the ball back in our stance,
and then make contact with the ball with the hands still ahead. This method is simple to understand,
but requires perfect contact. Do you get to practise everyday?

If you can learn how to use your bounce it becomes easier to make solid contact, even if you’re stroke is slightly off.
It’s perfect for weekend golfers who don’t have the time to practise everyday.
 
 

Using the bounce on your wedge makes chipping off all lies a lot simpler.
Are you working with your wedge design?
