Greetings from Derek Tuesday, 29 August 2017

This week we are very proud to be hosting the KZN Amateur Championships and I look to seeing how some of the best amateurs in country perform around Southbroom. The two qualifying rounds for the  Championships are done with 99 players vying for the 32 matchplay spots. Gavin Sole played really well under tough conditions. So now for the match play. It is going to be very interesting  especially watching some of the long hitters attack the driveable par fours.

We have organised reciprocity for our Members with San Lameer, Wild Coast,  Port Shepstone & Margate  You can  play during  weekend and over our spring treatment closure  (Sept 4th- Sept 6th)  so phone us or come in to the Pro Shop to see your options.

 What a Fantastic pic of the 2nd taken by David Rush last week!
Message from Johan Kinsey Ahlers
Herewith we just want to say a big thank you for once again allowing us to partner with Southbroom Golf Club to host our annual Audi Quattro Cup event last Saturday.

We have had tremendous feedback from participants, guests and our own staff and trust that your members and visitors all also enjoyed the day. Thank you for your great service and for accommodating us to “take over” your Saturday club day – we believe it was a great success. The day and the course was really outstanding.

Please extend our thanks to the members, management team and staff. It is always a pleasure for me to support Southbroom, being a member at your club myself, even though I do not get as much time to play as I would like. Need to work at changing this into the future?

We congratulate all the winners on the day, and especially wish the winning pair all the very best for the National Final at Fancourt later next month.

Kind regards

Johan Kinsey-Ahlers congratulating Craig McDonald & Andre de Klerk

The Southbroom Ladies enjoyed their Open Day on Monday!

The Ladies had a great turn out  and a good time judging by all the happy pics!  Thanks to all the sponsors! The CowGirls did themselves proud!

Sad new is that Tamarind will be closing their doors at the end of this month. 26th August is their last official night. Brandon & Sam will continue with their wonderful pop up evenings in Southbroom and catering for private functions. They thank Southbroomers for the loyal support and promise to keep in touch.

We wish this hard working, enterprising young couple all the best in their new ventures.

Actually, who plays what golf ball on Tour is less important than which golf ball you should play to
get the most out of your golf game.

It is very relevant that Srixon golf balls have a lot of winners. But take some time to select your golf ball for what you consider a win. Better, straighter tee shots? Approach shots with more stopping power? Greenside control, with more spin on shorter shots? A responsive feel? Srixon Z-Star golf balls have it all, but what is the win you want?

The really good news is that independent reviews, not just our loud opinion, indicate that whichever wins you want,
you’ll find a Srixon golf ball of the very highest quality.

Bring a golfer back to the game
A lot of people who played the game
of golf through their teens and early twenties, stopped playing as their
careers and family commitments
placed pressure on their time.

For many this has been a hiatus that has taken them into their late 40’s and even early 50’s.

Let’s find these ex-golfers and bring them back to the game for some very good reasons.

Derek and Sheena
