Tune in to your favourite station

A winter treat!

When winter comes whirling in, we usually take cover under heavy jackets, woolly jerseys and duvets. The biggest challenge each morning is put one toe out of bed onto the freezing tile floor!

But winter can be fun, and warm, and snug. You just need the right people and the right setting!

Before winter properly sets in, make way for our Winter Special! This includes a bed & breakfast and a complimentary glass of red wine or Gluhwein. Relax after dinner with a hot cup of coffee in the one hand and dessert in the other.

To book your winter retreat, call us on 051 871 4200 or info@blackmountainhotel.co.za.

Simplify your short game

A wedge chart helps

You want to hit closer wedge shots more often with greater ease. If you can control your distance, you create more opportunities for birdies and par saves. Let’s help you achieve this by simplifying your short game with the use of a wedge chart. 
A ‘wedge chart’ is an accurate recording of the distance each wedge travels depending on the length of your swing. Wedge charts are used by the majority of Tour Pros, yet no one really encourages amateur or club golfers to use them.
Making your wedge game easier
 Understanding the importance of precision on approach shots using a wedge chart is your first lesson to a better short game and becoming a wedge guru. You may think you are not good enough for a wedge chart,
but they really work for any level of golfer.

Better ball striking

There’s a special feeling that comes with hitting a solid iron shot. Especially one you feel launch off the face and then track on a great trajectory going straight at the target.
 Most of those who are struggling to hit solid iron shots have a low point of their swing BEFORE the ball. That means they either make "fat" contact (turf before ball) or they catch the ball with the bottom of their iron face (thin) on the upswing.
If you’re a good ball striker and want to get even better, then try focusing on tempo. Reduce your emphasis on how far you hit your irons, and work on a consistent tempo. A good tempo will lead to consistent contact and consistent distances.

Make it solid

You need to strike the ball first with a slight descending trajectory. That ensures your contact is solid and strikes the face in the hitting zone. We have drills that can help you on the practice range. We can also look at your swing and let you know how to improve your ball striking.
