It’s a wonderful time of the year on the European Tour and this week in Ireland looks very special. The golf course looks amazing and the first round was played in good weather. Links golf is the way the game was first played and if you enjoy watching Links golf, then the next three weeks is a treat with the Scottish Open next week and the Open Championship the following week.

We have the Southbroom Amateur Classic next week and even though we are not a true Links, a number of shots around the course need to be played like Links golf. It has been dry, so the course is running and with firm winter greens the old bump and run shot is quite handy, especially if there is a breeze.

We look forward to 160 golfers moving into town and many with their families for a great week of golf. The whales, dolphins, sardines and game fish were a sight to see yesterday on a glorious day at the coast.   Southbroom Members can look forward to a special rate at San Lameer. Thanks Meyer! The Wild Coast is hosting a PGA Event Mon to Wed and Post Shepstone has  the InterVarsity Tournament all week.

We have some great specials on Titleist and Srixon golf balls. So even if you are not playing the Classic, pop in for a special!

Come and test the latest Titleist putters and wedges Tuesday afternoon and Titleist irons and drivers on Wednesday morning. Golf just gets easier with this new technology.

The Titleist British Open Special is Buy 1 dozen Pro V or Pro V1 and go into a Southbroom draw to win the Titleist Limited Edition Golf Bag!

The Srixon special at the moment : Buy 1 dozen Srixon and stand a 1/100 chance of winning R10 000 to spend in Southbroom Pro Shop.

If you want a long and happy relationship with your Putter,
then there’s a five-step dating process you need to appreciate and follow.
 Huntingdon Beach 2 Putter
A precision-milled face with a softer feel,
but which of the Huntington Beach range
would be your perfect partner?
It starts with you.
Are you a straight-back-and-straight-through sort of Putter? Or are you an
open-square-closed-stroke sort of golfer? Knowing which you are allows us to narrow the field
of potential partners, to just those whose balance fits your putting stroke.
Nine putters, six different shapes. Potentially very different partners who will each behave very differently
as you take the Putter back, and more importantly attempt to square the face at impact.
As you search for the perfect putting partner. In the meantime, if you’re unsure of which stroke you have or
how to check the balance on a putter, then please come and chat with us.
We want to be the best matchmakers in the industry.

If you’re part of a group of friends shooting scores in the high 80’s or early 90’s,
then you’re all on the edge of a big improvement to your on-course experience.
To be shooting those scores, you’re already showing
the athletic ability to play this game well.
We’ll start with an assessment of each golfer to identify the personal opportunities,
but our experience tells us that the improvement areas will lead to:
If that’s a golf experience that appeals to you, then please don’t wait.
Start the journey to hitting even better golf shots.

Derek and Sheena
