From Pierre's desk

 
We keep moving forward
 
On the 7th of November 2022, we will celebrate our 30th birthday as a golf club. Like a lot of estate courses, we are relatively young when you compare us to the Durban Country Clubs and Royal Cape's of South Africa. I believe for such a young club we have a rich tradition of events, tournaments and have done very well to improve our facilities over the years.

Over the next 30 years, our club and estate will continue to grow and go from strength to strength. One of our homeowners Tanya Cromme, surprised us with a few pictures this week. It is evident in the pictures that San Lameer changed quite a bit over the last 30 odd years.

I took a picture this morning from the clubhouse from a similar angle and the changes are evident.
 
 
Those small palm trees around the 9th green are a lot bigger today and have become a feature on our signature hole. The San Lameer Logo is still behind the 9th green and will continue to be a feature on the 9th for many years to come.
 
 
It just shows that although the estate, golf course and clubhouse change over time, that there will always be a couple of landmarks on the estate to remind us of how it all started. Today we are one of the premium resorts in the country and San Lameer country club is a bucket list item for many golfers.

Thank you for the images, Tanya.

A busy weekend ahead

This weekend will be a busy one for us on the estate. Please click on my video below for more information on all of the activities planned.
 
 
Next week we will start our overseeding programme as the Paspalum Grass will become dormant due to the cooler weather. We will oversee our greens with our winter grass “ POA Trivialis”. We do this to ensure that our greens continue to roll well over winter, and over time we have built a reputation for having the best greens in KZN over the winter months.

Thank you to Clinton and his team for always ensuring our golf course is in great shape.

Have a great long weekend

Happy golfing

Golf with a twist
Turn the scoring zone into your playground
 
You play over half of your shots on a normal round in the ‘scoring zone’ (the area inside 100 metres of the green). So it makes sense that you’d want to improve in this zone, and playing a round of holes in this zone is a fun way to do that.
 
“Take only the clubs you know you’ll need to play the final 100 metres of any hole. Leave the tee boxes and most of the fairway behind you as you drop a ball inside your scoring zone of each hole and play from there. And feel free to play more than one ball if you like.”
 
Throw out the scorecard
Don’t restrict golf to an 18-hole, par-72, 4-hour experience. It can be so much more than that. You can choose how you want to enjoy golf each time you play. That may be a traditional format on one day and a 70-metre, 9-hole format on another day. Free yourself up to more ways of enjoying this great game.

Unlock lower scores
What level are you approaching from?
 
 
Which is the longest iron that you hit consistently? At which iron does your consistency break down?
How bad is your breakdown? >
 
We’d like you to identify which of the following levels you’re in.
     
   
  You have no confidence you’ll actually hit the green with any full iron shot.  
     
   
  You’re comfortable hitting #8 iron through wedges, finding the green more often than not, with a low risk of dropping shots.  
     
   
  From #6 iron up, you’re able to hit the middle of the green with minimal risk of finding trouble and dropping shots.  
     
   
  You’re hitting the green with long irons at least half of the time, and with your mid- to short irons, you have such good control that you’re eliminating any risk.  
 
Level up
Better iron play could be your key to unlocking lower scores and a better overall playing experience.
