Albatross Guest House has a new Chef!

My name is Nick Wilson, I proudly introduce myself to all South Coasters as the Executive Chef at Albatross Guest House. I have worked as both assistant chef and chef in various restaurants in and around the coast and so have grown in experience for the past 5 years.

I have had the opportunity to work in restaurants and hotels offering ambrosia dishes, for example, Casa Bella in Umlhanga.

I am passionate about cooking and was very proud and honoured, when I was head hunted by Albatross Guest House and offered the position as Executive Chef which I gladly accepted.

The restaurant is open for breakfast, small lunches and dinners.
I invite you to come and experience a mouth water dining experience.

Booking in advance is essential

Dates to Diarise

Hole more putts
Take advantage of birdie opportunities
Matching the loft of your putter to your technique is critical in becoming a consistent putter and therefore seeing more putts drop. Having the incorrect loft will negatively impact many factors such as launch off the putter face, spin imparted on the ball and overall roll on the green.
Player with incorrect putter loft Player fitted for correct putter loft
If the ball launches too high with too much
spin it causes the ball to bounce. Likewise,
if the ball launches too low it causes the ball
to dig into the ground and hop. Both of these
impacts negatively on distance control and
accuracy (3-putts and shorter misses).
You’ll create a smooth repeatable roll off
the clubface,with a true roll found early.
You’ll increase your chance
of making putts. Your distance control
will improve.Fewer putts per round.
That impacts your scorecard.
Does your putter loft match your stroke?
Have you ever seen your putt bounce and just blamed it on the green?
It’s time you matched your putter to your game.
Hole more putts now.

Technology with real impact
 Srixon Z 785 and Z 585 Drivers
The new Srixon Z 785 and Z 585 both come with real performance improvements.
We think these will make a big difference for many of our golfer’s.
Here’s why >
Play more golf
Start anywhere with the family
If you’re looking for a great family bonding session, then there’s a great way to use golf over 2 hours and 9 holes.
Let everyone play the course in a way they can enjoy it.
If you’re the expert, then tee off from the front tees. Male or female, place the emphasis on being in play. You’re not showing off how far you hit it. (By the way, quietly check if your percentage of fairways hit has improved, if you club down to fairway or hybrid).

Let your non-golfers, or inexperienced golfers, tee off from where they like. If they’ve never played golf, or have just started learning, we’d suggest 50 yards from the green. There’s no point having non-golfers hit from bunkers. Let them throw it out. This isn’t competitive. Make it a family better-ball score.

Get an introduction to golf
If, together with some friends and their family, you’d like your non-golfers to get a sound introduction
to the game first, then let us give them an introductory lesson for an hour. What a great gift!
We promise to make it fun, especially for children.

Cleveland Golf RTX4 Wedges
The new Cleveland Golf RTX4 Wedges deliver ball-stopping spin and control, along with designs that offer you options.
If you haven’t upgraded your wedge set in a while, the Cleveland Golf RTX4 Wedges and the number of options they offer you greenside should be an inspiration to improve your short game.
