The Denis Hutchinson Tribute Tour with Dale Hayes

15th August 2019

The “Voice of Golf” Denis Hutchinson and Dale Hayes, invite you to enjoy 18 Holes of golf, and an evening with them as they discuss their long involvement in this wonderful game.

It’s 60 years since Denis won the SA Open at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington, beating Gary Player by one shot. Hutch was still an amateur and remains the last amateur to win the SA Open. Bloemfontein golf Club will host this event on Thursday the 15th of August.

Bookings will open shortly, contact Trevor or Janke on 051/ 447 0906 for more information.

Winter is coming...

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.

Could you save 5 shots per round?

Let’s get that putter working for you
If you struggle to make enough 6, 8, 10 and 12-foot putts on a flat lie, there’s a real possibility that your putter is getting in the way of your fun. If you’re struggling, then set up as shown below and try 10x10 foot putts (on a flat surface).

If you’re feeling uncomfortable in this setup, or you’re still struggling to sink enough straight-forward, flat putts, then try a putter with a shorter shaft. What happens then? You might be very surprised.

Is 35“ too long for you? The average shaft length on a putter is 35“. That’s too long for the majority of golfers. It’s longer than the average putter length on the PGA Tour. Can you get into a posture that allows you to setup correctly and deliver the putter face square at impact with 35“?

Get a check-up
Improving your ability to square the putter face at impact will take up to 5 shots off your scorecard. There are some simple keys to that improvement. Set up and putter are part of that equation. So come and see us.

Enjoy the journey


 Better is more enjoyment. Better is more excitement. Better is more rewarding. Better is a look of surprise on your playing partner’s face. Better is a challenge faced and an accomplishment made.

Start a journey
Golf is even more fun when it’s a journey somewhere. It’s more than playing. It’s about growing and improving and mastering a new skill. Speak to us about our ‘Play Nine Together’ or ‘Personal Assessment’ and we’ll show you a pathway to better.
