The Umtamvuma pumps are fixed so water flow should all be A1 again.

Ugu Ops have completed the repairs to the Umtamvuna lift pump and production has recovered. The process of recommissioning the system from Port Edward to Southbroom and up to Izingolweni has begun. It could take up to 3 days for this process to be completed as they reservoir balance, open valves and purge airlocks. The #vulavala Schedule is now suspended. If residents don’t yet have water, please sms 44751 with your address and a brief statement about no water.

Thanks to Richard Bridgeford & Darren van Aswegen for all the Dave Watson Updates published on The Southbroom News Updates  Facebook page.  Invaluable!

The great Southbroom Bake-off

Great Southbroom Lime Cook ‘n Bake-off

The great Southbroom Lime Cook ‘n’ Bake-Off will take place at Southbroom Bowling Club from midday on Monday 17th June (a public holiday). Proceeds will go to the Southbroom Conservancy.

The lime-fest has been initiated by resident Felicity Robertson, mainly on account of a surfeit of limes on the tree in her garden. Local businesses have jumped on board with prizes for the winning entries and local stars Dawne Murray and Peddy Bam & Sheena James have agreed to do the judging. Please support this fine community initiative.

How to enter: Pick up a few limes from the box at the Southbroom Pro Shop, fill in an entry form and pay R20.

1.    Make your lime masterpiece at home – anything with limes as the main ingredient/taste
2.    Prepare a portion for the judges and potential buyers to sample
3.    Bring it to the bowling club at 11am on the day
4.    Judging to take place from noon. Categories to be determined according to the number of entries
5.    Suggest a price at which your dish should be sold – proceeds to the Conservancy. The winning dishes will be auctioned off
6.    Be prepared to part with your recipe – buyers to donate R20 to the Conservancy

The bowling club bar will be open from 11am, and boerie rolls or burgers will be on sale. The atmosphere will be festive, and the bowlers will be in action from 2pm. It’s fun to watch – stay on the terrace and enjoy the day.

The motivation for the lime cook-off is to use up the limes. Anyone else with limes is welcome to donate them at the Pro Shop. Competitors may provide their own limes if the supply gets exhausted. Any remaining will be on sale at the lime-fest.

Any queries, please contact the bowling club secretary, Julie Walker or Whatsapp/phone 083 273 6840 (Julie) or 079 103 3524 (Felicity).

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 10×10 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.

The Srixon Z 585: Distance and feel
A compact look. A great sound. A soft, buttery feel. But the Srixon Z 585 is an iron we’d recommend for golfers looking for improved consistency and distance.

 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.
