Tomorrow is the Casa Toscana Day, Saturday 23rd July!

Sandra FitzGerald Aced the fabulous 4th Hole
Another Hole in One on the 4th!
Congrats Sandy FitzGerald who was just so thrilled to experience her very first Hole-in-One on the 4th-Hole on
Saturday 16th June! So exciting for her 4 ball of Rene Di & Louise to witness it  and share in the excitement!

What a US Open last week with the defending champion Brooks Koepka winning by a shot after a flurry of birdies from Fleetwoodand Reed. So much more exciting to watch the best players in the world performing at their best rather than making bogies and doubles and watching Phil hit a moving ball. Saturday (third round) was a mess. Phil was wrong, but when one of the best putters of all time is putting the ball off the green, something is wrong. A great golf course ruined. It is crazy when greens get so fast. Play becomes slow and impossible and what is worse is that golf courses around the world think that it is the way to go. Three and four putting slippery quick greens is not fun.

Our greens at Southbroom have sped up a little with the last dusting as we get ready for the Classic. We have less growth because of lower temperatures but nothing crazy, and clearly Chris Miller enjoyed the greens, making a 64 net in our medal on Wednesday.

A mid-Iron second, over a nasty hazard, with more trouble right of the green,
tests your technique, your equipment, your fitting, and your confidence.
A Hybrid has the forgiveness,
and deeper centre of gravity this shot needs.
But some golfers struggle mentally with the
need to strike the ball a descending blow
with a Hybrid.
That’s why some manufacturers have
created Crossovers or Hybrid-Irons.
Mentally it is easier to think about,
and execute, a slightly descending
blow with this club.
If there’s an area of your approach shot game from the Fairway that punishes you too often,
there’s potential for scorecard improvement. Use the right fitted equipment with the right technique,
and you’ll be able to take the challenge on with a greater chance of success.
Spend 45 minutes with us. Let’s make a difference.

Got some friends who have just started to learn the game?
Give them a chance to have some fun out on the golf course.
You don’t have to tee off from the tee box – a hugely daunting and intimidating experience
for someone still struggling to get a full shot airborne consistently.
It will lead to a much longer round and not a lot of joy.
Why not play 9-holes with each hole starting at the 40 metre mark?
You don’t have to wait for us to create fun golf experiences.
You can create them yourselves as a four-ball, or a small group.
Respect everyone else, but enjoy your golf.
Try this with friends, if you’re a regular or even highly competitive golfer.
Come down after work, before work, whenever you have 2 hours.
Play a 9 hole 40 metre Championship. It’s a great game.

Anyone not shooting under 36?
Then it’s time to pay a visit and improve your short game.

Derek and Sheena
