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 here...

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.

Setup and practice
That’s right. Get into a better setup (with equipment that allows it). Add more focus to the face angle of your putter at address and at impact; and you’ll sink more putts in the 6 to 12-foot range.
This is a bottom line investment.
That’s right. Your improvement drops immediately to your scorecard. So benchmark your current performance by taking 10x10 foot putts on a perfectly flat lie.

 Then consider at least two of three investments.

1. A putter that fits you, allowing you to get comfortably into the perfect
with assistance to make sure your face angle is square to the target line.

2. An assessment and refresher to help make sure that, along with setup
and posture, your grip and stroke allow the face to return square to target at impact.

3. Practice with aids to help make sure your face angle is as square as possible at address and at impact.
Get a check-up
Improving your ability to square the putter face at impact will likely take up to 5 shots off your scorecard. There are some simple keys to that improvement. Setup and putter are part of that equation. So come and see us.
