Greetings from Derek Sunday, 05 November 2017

Southbroom Flower Power     powered thru the KZN Interclub field
Our ladies performed superbly at the KZN Interclub in a bitterly cold Dundee over the weekend . Dundee GC did a great in organising, which means a good time was enjoyed by all. Michelle Davis and Jeanette Peyios finished 3rd overall, only one point behind the winners of the Bronze Division, 5th were Di Morris & Jean Cole , 6th place were Allyson Thomas and Sandy Fitzgerald  and a very respectable 14th place for Irene Schanda and Shirley Jeffery.   The Teams best finish in years Well Done Ladies   Great golf and good spirited fun as well!

The Men’s Inter Club teams also enjoyed their weekend but didn’t fare as well. The Southbroom B Division of Gavin Sole, Kevin Murray & Gary Purtell lost in the B Div final against Kloof.

The ongoing  lack of water saga due to UGU strike action is really testing all our resilience and patience over the entire Lower South Coast and we sincerely hope and trust it will be resolved soon.
Please note that Club showers are not in use at the moment and water is being pumped in for use in the toilets.

Manny Zerman visits Southbroom
It was exciting to have my good friend Manny Zerman in town and playing golf at Southbroom last week. He was such a good player, twice playing at the US Masters and performing well. He grew up at Umkomaas with his brother Ray and Tim Clark, which just goes to show that with the right attitude good players can develop from the small towns. He was down here with the Wild Boys, Devlin Player, Ian Middleton and Gavin Vice who play in our Southbroom International Shootout in mid February every year, which is a reminder to put your team of four players together for Fri 9, Sat 10 and Sunday 11 February 2018.   Men, Ladies or any combination and what great fun! Alliance BB Stab & Ind stab format.

Janet and Deon held the official opening of their spinning and yoga/gym studio on Friday. It is a fantastic set up and is being enjoyed by so many Southbroomers and beyond. The name Changing Gears is so apt because the energy, vibe, enthusiasm and fitness that resonates from them and the studio will change your life.   Thank you Janet and Deon!

The Fairway Wood, with its longer shaft, has always presented golfers with the greatest challenge.
On practice tees, you rarely see it in a golfer’s hands. Few use it off the fairway with confidence.
Yet it offers so much opportunity.
