Congratulations to our 3 Southbroom Men’s Inter Club teams who did us proud! The A Division, Kevin Murray, Gavin Sole & Cyprian Xolo won the A Section Alliance Trophy.

Our Ladies Inter Club Team are playing at Port Shepstone at the moment – we wish them a good tournament! They are enjoying hot sunny weather, a far cry from the horrendous wind and intermittent rain that the men endured!

The Club House enjoyed a bumper weekend as main hosts of the Men’s Inter Club and the bar and catering did very well! The new coffee counter is well supported and also is very usefull when serving buffet breakfasts.

If I told you that the impact on accuracy is far greater on a shorter iron than a longer iron,
would that make you take more notice of your lie angles?
Put a #4 iron on the ground. Raise the toe. Now imagine a straight line squarely leaving the sweet spot.
Notice how its going left of target. Now do the same with a #9 Iron and check the line leaving the sweet spot.
Whoa. Much further left.

You’ve made a great swing but, if the lie angle on your #9 iron is 2° too upright,
then you’re going 15 feet left of your target. What is often 15 feet left of target when
you’re aiming at the green? Too right? Sand, rough, or even water. A great swing spoiled.

Let us help you hit more great shots. Let us check out your lie angles.
Get that right, and you’ll be amazed at how much more accurate you are.
This applies to all golfers. Why waste a great swing?

What if improving your golf improved your social experience playing the game?
Think about it for a moment. How does that sound to you?
First, improvement doesn’t have to be a one-on-one experience. It can be a shared experience.
Group or family coaching. A practice club. An excuse for 45 – 60 minutes hitting golf balls with friends and
family and then a drink and possibly food together afterwards.
With a better game, there’s more fun and enjoyment. There’s an opportunity to help
and encourage others. There’s the motivation to play and share the experience more often.
And there’s no experience like playing golf with friends.
A better playing experience out on the golf course is great.
It adds to everything: fulfillment, friendships, fun, fitness.
