Wishing all our readers the very best for 2019!

Now that was a non-stop season! Southboom was ‘choc-a-bloc’ full as was the beach with many happy families enjoying all the village facilities. Christmas Lunch at the Club was full and the New Year’s party was good fun. The morning  06.30-08.30 times for golf were extremely popular as always and the afternoons were steady. Always great to see the returning home owners and regulars, especially the families with all the different generations. A few commented they had been to Plett for the last few years and couldn’t wait to get back to Southbroom with its lovely laid-back, relaxed vibe! There were also many first-time visitors to the club and course, which is always lovely to see and listen to their feedback & their reactions!
Welcome 2019! Main Beach at capacity!

Revealing the lie
The key to accuracy is flawed
We suspect that you all realise that the lie angle on your irons is of paramount importance to your
ability to hit solid and accurate approach shots.
You may even have read the research that reveals that for every 1° your lie angle is
too flat or upright, you’ll be 10 feet wide of the target with a perfectly hit #5 iron.
So you’d appreciate why we’re alarmed by some research we did ourselves.
The standard lie angle for different brands is different!
That’s right, the first three models we checked (all game improvement models)  from three different brands,
all had different standard lie angles! That means you might be standard with one
model and 1° upright with another.
Every purchase needs a fitting
No one should buy golf equipment (any golf club)  without a fitting. As this research shows,
even for the most important component of an iron; the part that controls accuracy; it’s critical
to get fitted for your swing AND the model being selected.
Make it easier to hit better golf shots.
Get fitted >
The best for you
Why make this journey?
We want to help as many of you as possible find new levels  of joy and fulfillment from your golf.
Experience that sweet moment, when you make perfect contact and the ball flies high and long,
and you know why you come back again.
We want more smiles. More times that you follow your shot and think “How cool is that!”.
More moments of joy. More causes for celebration.
If inconsistent ball striking
blights your game
let us improve your ability to make solid,
square contact.
Get a better experience
What would cause you to smile more often on the golf course? What would give you cause for celebration?
If “greater consistency” of ball striking will help deliver a smile or celebration,
Contact us >

 

Regards,
Derek and Sheena
