The greens are beginning to come through beautifully after spring treatment. As we start to cut them down with new blades, they will transform into a great surface. The Mixed Classic in two weeks time is full and will be a great weekend of golf, food and entertainment!

He was also the runner-up to Kenneth Dube! Congratulations Meyer! I was honoured to be awarded Master Professional Status. It was fabulous to see every one in the golf industry at the evening, especially Denis Hutchison.
The new Titleist TS Range is here
Vic Pretorius, our Club President, testing the new Titleist TS3 and TS2 drivers and fairway woods. They really are amazing clubs with wonderful technology, easy to hit, and with the correct setting and shaft, they are longer. It is sometimes hard to believe that equipment can get much better but this new range of TS3 and TS2 are very impressive. They are about to launch in SA so come in and test them out. Even the sound of the ball off the face is exciting.
