Greetings from Derek Saturday, 05 May 2018

It’s been another non-stop week!
Congrats to John & Jenny Fox on winning the April 100 Club drawn last Friday. The fast R 5000 was won by Bob Thomas!

The Ladies are pleased with their new
bench on the 7th Tee
The informal Club Members Meeting last Saturday was well attended and it was a good and positive morning.

The short game clinic was well received, we really are enjoying marvellous April – May weather!

Hospice Fundraiser 
The Hospice Day was an energetic happy day and Hospice sincerely thanks all the Southbroom members for playing, sponsoring, and helping them reach their target of over R100 000.00. Amazing!

The Men’s Handicap league looked great and narrowly lost to Umdoni 6.5 & 5.5. Thanks to all the guys for supporting the club!
The Ladies League started at Scottburgh last Sunday. It was a mixed day with Southbroom 1 beating Selborne and Southbroom 2 drawing Umkomaas.

DataCentrix  Players  

Escaping the Wind! 
DataCentrix Corporate Day enjoyed the first day of their South Coast Tour on Thursday. Most of the players were on the 6am flight from Lanseria, and it was good to see the clubhouse buzzing. A strong, gusty wind came up for most of the afternoon, and the new outside room was just perfect; and full with a great vibe of players coming in, enjoying a few drinks, catching up with mates and enjoying the view without being blown off the verandah! So good to see!

 Ready for those fairways Ladies! 
Now it’s time for the Ladies Classic Registration is from 4pm on Saturday afternoon, and we anticipate another fun-filled happy few days with Gatsby Girls coming in from far and wide!

The Course is closed Sunday, Monday & Tuesday but our neighbouring courses are looking forward to welcoming you!

You want a soft golf ball but, if you’re a slower swing speed golfer, you also need one that
will maximise energy transfer at impact. We’ve got you covered.
This ball has a super-low compression. The softest ever Srixon core will deliver you an incredibly soft feel.
But this balls core offers two other big gains for the slower swing speed golfer:
If you’re a golfer with a slower swing speed, then it’s worth trialling a sleeve of Srixon
UltiSoft to see how this ball improves your golf experience.

 This month, our focus is your score on the Par 3’s you play.
Let’s start that focus with some measurement.
 How many under or over Par were you
on the Par 3’s in your last round?

Start to make that a statistic you keep.

Keep your average score per round.

Make this a target for improvement.

Simple Tip #1

Tee the golf ball to the correct height to encourage consistency.
As well as tracking your score on Par 3’s, pay close attention to where your misses are.
Do they reflect the same challenges you have on all approach shots?
Improving your performance on Par 3’s will probably increase your enjoyment throughout the round.
Think about improvement. If we can help,


Derek and Sheena
