I have to say once again how good the golf course is even though we haven’t had much rain. The greens are a little on the slow side but quite true and one can be aggressive putting, which always makes for more putts holed. Very quick greens are a nightmare for all standards of golfers, just ask Phil Michelson. It is almost impossible to get greens in a tropical climate quick all year round so come and enjoy Southbroom, San Lameer, Wild Coast, Port Shepstone and Margate where you can putt with a positive stroke. We are in for some rain over the next few days, so golf on the south coast will be fantastic for season.
A fitting success
On Wednesday Garath Arnold from Srixon, Cleveland and XXIO was down and the members had a great time trying out all their new equipment. I am still amazed at how golf clubs keep getting better. Quite simply, they are easier to hit which makes the game more fun. Of course, there is still no substitute for good technique, so here are a few tips that you absolutely have to do and check with your PGA professional:
1. Check your grip.
The Ladies enjoyed a festive ‘twisted xmas’ 13 fun holes golf day & lunch! The Southbroom Ladies had a great time on the golf course enjoying their Christmas Golf and Lunch day. Playing from different tees and a different format on all 13 holes made for much laughter and fresh ideas. Teeing off from the top 8th tee to play the 9th hole was especially enjoyed!
5km Fun Run/Walk
The early Fun 5km Walk Run held last Sunday was enjoyed by over 73 folk, most of whom were not golfers. It was great to see all our vistors enjoying our facilities and commenting on what an enjoyable start to the Sunday they had! The egg and Bacon rolls were great afterwards. The Golf Club gave full breakfast vouchers for main winners and Thanks to Realty 1 for sponsoring wine added to the prizes, Applied Outsourcing for sponsoring kids lucky packets and Tammy de Oliveria of Pawsome Raw for sponsoring the doggie treat prizes!
Winner of the “Order Most Fowl’Most Chickens in the Chicken Run this year is Malcom Greenland with 10 birds closely followed by Chris Miller with 8 wins! Enjoy your dinner on the Club Malcom! The evening was well attended and the Legends kept all dancing till late! The new dancefloor was great! Hearty thanks to John Caple of Gayridge Poultry Farm for their amazing sponsorship of the popular Chicken Run! You can find them on 44 Windgate Ave just past Margate Country Club 039 312 1093.
Congratulations also to the November 100 Club Winners, John, Peter and George pictured below right.
