Dear Sponsors, Members and Friends of the Southbroom Tennis ClubOn behalf of the committee and members, I thank you for supporting the 1st golf day of the Southbroom Tennis Club. It looks like everybody had a good time and an enjoyable day, so well prepared by the Pro Shop team, Sheena and Dane. It was also fantastic to experience the support and camaraderie coming from the members of the Southbroom Golf Club which was very much appreciated.

Please visit our Facebook page (Southbroom Tennis Club) to enjoy the photographs.

Now to the many sponsors, players, our friends we have in the community and business circles – your support was phenomenal, exceeding all expectations.

I was under the impression that a golf day would be a walk in the park. Little did I know. Without the constructive input from Joy and the help of many members of the Club, it would not have been possible to raise the R55,000 that finally completes the funds we need for our major projects:

1. Gcilima Primary School – introducing the game of tennis to Grade 5 students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
2. Tennis courts – repair and resurface our three courts and add floodlights to one.

Once again, on behalf of the committee and members of the Southbroom Tennis Club, I thank you most sincerely for supporting these projects.

Kind regards

Could you save 5 shots per round?

A simple test to benchmark your putting setup
The jury is out on this one. The evidence shows that, if one is more important than the other, then it’s marginal. We think this myth has come about as the industry tries to educate golfers that weight is very important. And it is.
If the angle of your putter
face is just 2° out at impact then,
even from just 6 feet you’re
going to miss.
If you miss most putts in the 6 – 12 foot range then the chances are you have a face angle challenge. For most, that problem starts at the address position. Benchmark your skill level:
Get a check-up
Improving your ability to square the putter face at impact will take up to 5 shots off your scorecard. There are some simple keys to that improvement. So come and see us.
