Ladies Classic!

We are gearing up to welcome nearly 100 ladies playing in the 2019 Ladies Classic so the clubhouse is just a buzz with activity! We are closed on Sunday 12th, Monday and Tuesday for the Ladies Classic. Our neighbours, Fred Beaver from the Wild Coast, has offered our Southbroom members a fabulous rate of R275 (cart included) for Sunday and Monday. Sorry not on Tuesday as they have Nomads.

Everyone wants forgiveness
Take it where you need it
If you describe yourself as a good or solid ball striker, these two shots still provide you with different challenges. You don’t need forgiveness in your irons on the short shot, but the longer #5 or #4 iron shot will test your skills and consistency.
If you’re consistent throughout your set, then a better players iron (more compact, possibly forged) is a great choice. If you start to lose consistency in the mid-irons, then consider blending two iron models through your set. A players iron for the shorter irons, and a more forgiving model for the mid and longer irons.
The shorter irons can be compact with a CoG that is a little higher, and closer to the face, with limited launch assistance. The mid to longer irons can be a different model: one that offers a larger hitting zone and a little more launch assistance.
It’s about the distances
If you want to blend two different models into one set, then it’s not about the numbers on the sole. It’s about the distances you hit each club. As well as finding the perfect fit, we want to make sure you have each distance base covered.

Knock it down. Knock it close.
Watch the Tour on TV and you’ll see a lot of players finishing like this on wedge shots. It’s a clue that they’ve played a lower trajectory wedge shot. They know its easier to control the distance they’re hitting their wedge if they keep the ball on a lower trajectory.
Want to make the most of opportunities and hit your wedge approach shots close to the hole? Then learn this skill.
Easier control and more spin
You’ll hit your target distance easier. And the ball will have a ton of spin and check really quickly. Then learn to hit lower flighted, higher spinning wedge shots.

Derek and Sheena
