KWV take over a monthly Meat Day

Starting today and then on every last Thursday of the month, KWV will be sponsoring the Meat Day! Thank you to Dirk Burger and his team for their support of Zwartkop – let’s show them our appreciation!

Hole-in-One Challenge

All the Nearest the Pin winners from our December Hole in One Promotion will soon go into a dramatic chip out on the 18th green for a chance to win the Tag Heuer watch, valued at R25 000!

We’ll be contacting all the participants shortly and hope you will turn out in your droves to watch them chip-off!

We only had one hole-in-one over the period, by Rossouw Nortje on the 18th December – and because he took part in the Hole-in-One Challenge, he won a 10-year membership to Zwartkop valued at R250 000.00!

Get ready for Club Champs Clinics
We are determined to get you ready for Club Champs in May, and are giving you 4 clinics with enough time to practice your skills in between.

Take advantage of our PGA Professional’s expert knowledge and learn to focus on the areas that will make the most difference to your score!

New irons now?

You have less than an inch and just 0.0005 seconds to influence what is going to happen with your golf ball.
There are characteristics of your irons that can make it much harder to make this fraction of a second count. We need to tick these off.

Get the lie angle or shaft length wrong, and, on contact with the turf, the face will IMMEDIATELY TWIST.
Grip size too thick, you’ll struggle to rotate the clubface and leave it open. Grip size too thin, you’ll get too handsy and close the face.
The shaft is too stiff, and you won’t unload the club leaving the face open at impact. Too much flex and the clubface will get ahead, and the face will try to close too quickly.
Finally, how much offset does the face have? Too much and the face will be open. Too little, and you will be closed.

Be your best ever
Technology is changing the game. Too many lose out because they don’t spend the time to get fitted. Technology, fitted, means your best golf will be ahead of you.

Act on your feelings

What if we could deliver you a better golf experience quicker than you ever thought possible?
What if some simple habits could make an immediate improvement to your game?
Too many golfers make it almost impossible to hit good approach shots because they haven’t warmed up to allow themselves to rotate. And too few golfers hit great shots because of some basics setup errors and inadequate preparation before the shot.

So much can be learned quickly
In a 9-hole round with us, we can highlight the good habits every golfer can adopt to discover more joy, satisfaction, and accomplishment.
