Greetings from Derek Tuesday, 25 July 2017

Sat 15th July is the Southbroom Conservancy Fundraising Golf Day
There are some times left! Phone the Pro Shop on 039 316 6051
Join us for a great day on the Southbroom Golfing Calendar!

Sunday 16th is the Fun Run/ Walk  at 7am in the Morning  and the Junior Golf Clinic  at 3pm in the afternoon.
See posters below:

What a wonderful 27th Southbroom Men’s Amateur Classic 
We had sparkling weather, great food and drink, tons of laughter and friendship together with some special golf. The course was playing dry and fast with firm quick greens, so shorter than normal and if you got it right the players could put some very good scores together, which is exactly what happened.
There was a little wind on Day 1 and  Day 2  and twelve teams within three shots of the lead. Day 3 (which the pros call moving day) there was some serious moving with Graham and Guy Barkhuizen making 53 points in the morning to separate themselves from the field. The afternoon was even better with Chris Miller and Tony Routledge making 54 points. Chris doubled the first hole only to be saved by Tony’s 4 for 3 points, then Chris played the next 17 holes in one over par, shooting 75 off an 18 handicap. Truly great golf for a guy who hasn’t been 100% well, but proof that good scoring was not impossible with the correct strategy.
Too many players were smashing drivers off the tees and spending the day in trouble! This put the two teams well clear of the field and playing together on the last day.  It was a two horse race indeed.

Classic Moments 

Thanks to Classic Sponsors! 
Locals Bernie Vorster and Des Erasmus had other ideas sneaking in under the radar with 51 points to finish  only one point behind the two leading teams. Graham and Guy made 45 points catching Chris and Tony who made 44 points. The tie meant a count out – which goes the way of the best last day – giving the Trophy to the Barkhuizen brothers –  well Done Guy & Graham   Sadly this is the second time that Chris and Tony have lost the Classic on a count out.  so they will be a good team to watch next year.

So to the end of a wonderful weeks golf and fun and a big thanks must go out Hibiscus Brokers & Barry Elliot for one again being our Umbrella Sponsor. Thanks to Team Climax  together with Mopar Jeep & Alfa Romeo for their great sponsorship, Classy dressers Team DRC from Lumbumbashi and their Comexas Sponsorship   and  to all the many wonderful Sponsors who sent in both cash and prizes sponsorships (see poster). Special Thanks also to to all the members who helped with registration, starting & club decor – it all adds to make the event so special.

The best use of your time is?
If you’ve got some time after work, which is going to give the most enjoyment?
In truth we would benefit from them all, so why not have a “weekly workout routine” that includes
two 45-minute Golf practice sessions?

But your time is precious, so why not
make the most of your practice?

Start with an Assessment to identify the areas for
improvement, and the changes required.

Then make sure you have a structured practice plan.

Let’s assess where you are. Let’s identify the area for improvement.
Let’s give you the practice drills.
