5th hole – Reshaping the waterways

Our course is gearing up for the festive season

The golf course is looking absolutely wonderful and the greens are taking shape after a cold September and October following Spring Treatment. The workings on the 5th hole sponsored by Heinz Seiser are looking great and will take real shape once the grass is planted and starts to grow.
It is all adding to the gem that is Southbroom Golf Club and I am sure we are in for a great season.

A few things have changed on the score card which makes them both better and simpler.
1. All the tees have the same strokes, both the men’s and the ladies.
2. As a local rule and to speed up play, you may play a provisional ball from the drop zone on No. 8 before searching for your original ball that may have crossed the hazard.
3. Our distance markers in the fairways are all now to the middle of the greens.
So all distances both on scorecard and fairways are to the middle of the greens. Simple.

Hole more putts
Roll your ball like a Tour Pro
Combine the correct putter loft with your angle of attack into the ball and you will notice immediate improvements on the greens. It is crucial to have loft at impact to lift the ball out of the depression its found in at address.
Which image illustrates you at impact?
Having the incorrect hand or ball position for your putter’s loft will cause:
Poor roll (bouncing).
Poor distance control.
Off-center strikes.
And failure to start the ball on line.
Become a world class putter
Starting the ball on your desired target line is directly impacted by how much loft you
have at impact. Do you know if it’s your putter or your technique stopping you
from becoming a world class putter? Let us help you find out.
