Beautiful Mornings…
Thanks Richard Bridgeford for these stunning photos below of the newly constructed dams & wetlands on the 5th hole sponsored by Heinz Seiser.     Thanks also to John Pole for his contribution  and especially to Liz Nortonfor her special touch with the landscaping in and around the dams.  It is still a work in progress but coming on great.
5th Hole
Of Interest : Lala Palm (Hyphaene coriacea)
This is an iconic plant for this area and for the club, so much so that it is our club’s emblem. Lala Palms are very slow growers.  There are possibly more than 200 Lala palms dotted all over the grounds that are between 50 – 100 + years of age. It’s the beautifully kept clean cut Lala gloves that make the most impact such as on the 1st and 9th and the Lala palm on the 9th green that was saved years ago when the green was enlarged is always a fabulous talking point.
Family golf starts at Southbroom

Revealing the lie
Manufacturers try and solve problems
Most golfers lose the ball to the right. So, some manufacturers make, especially their game improvement irons, with more and more upright lies. They’re trying to find a solution to what MIGHT be a problem you have.
Research shows that for some golfers who lose the ball right, a more upright lie does change average ball flight.
It does however show that for some it has entirely different results.
Each of you is different.
Your spine tilt; knee flex; and how low or high
you prefer the handle, will not only affect lie angle;

but potentially also shaft length.
And then there’s your in-swing movement.
An inside path and outside path will probably
create different lie angle needs.

But the only way to tell is an assessment
That’s why we want you to start your journey to a better golf experience with a proper assessment.
Is your lie angle correct? Are your clubs making it harder to hit good shots?
Why not find out?
Book an assessment >
The best for you
Don’t settle for what you have
There’s a famous saying from Dr. Bob Rotella:
Great advice for when you’re on the golf course in competition.
But for most golfers, the implication of that is “most longer clubs stay in the bag forever”.
Most golfers struggle with consistency when using fairway woods, hybrids, longer irons,
and sometimes even mid-irons, so how do you apply this advice?
Do most of these clubs remain unused in the bag forever?
We have some sports psychology for you:
Get a better experience
By increasing the length of club that you can hit consistently from the fairway, you change your golf game.
Escape from difficult positions becomes easier. Setting up opportunity becomes easier.
Both of those lead to a better playing experience.
