I was sent these pictures today, and what a reminder they are that Golf in Africa can be beautiful and harsh at the same time. It also made me think about the importance of a good grip, as so aptly displayed by the Python…

Maybe this little video will help you understand the importance of a good grip a little better…

Improvements are well on their way!

The work on our grass tee is well under way and hopefully this week the earthworks and shaping will be complete. Then we can look at the irrigation and the new grass to be planted. All in all it should be ready for play by April/May this year.


The 2019 Mount Edgecombe Country Club Bunnies Program starts next month! If you know anyone who might be keen to attend, please ask them to contact me directly.

Satisfied Customers

“Hi Monica. Thank you so much for putting together a wonderful AGM for our club. The food was super, the drinks cold and the venue excellent. Everyone was happy, and that says a lot these days.”
– Vic Wait (Chairman of Cobra GT40m Club)

Happy Birthday Bobby!

Everyone’s favourite waiter at the Range, Bobby, celebrated his 55th birthday today!

How right we were:

The new Srixon Z-STAR Golf Ball

We said this was a golf ball that was beyond expectation. If you want everything (soft, fast, far, spin, durability, and now add stability in the wind) then the Srixon Z-STAR Series is your golf ball. Beyond expectation is one week, three tours, three wins, one golf ball. J.B. Holmes (PGA Tour), Ryan Fox (European Tour) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (Senior Tour) all won last week using the new Srixon Z-STAR Series Golf Balls.

Make it your business to try the new Z-STAR this week. Whether it’s your fourball or the club competition, the winner’s circle awaits. Call us in the shop.

Feel the thrill

Enjoy some speed

There’s no getting away from the fact that speed matters.
But the great news is that the smallest increase, translates into lots of distance.
And the even better news is that the smallest changes can create greater speed increases than you thought possible.

Increasing your clubhead speed by
just 1mph adds 2mph to
ball speed, and that results
in 4 extra metres.

Just look at how many ways we can add to your clubhead speed:

Upper body


Shaft Length

Shaft flex & performance


We’re delivering thrills

Creating the perfect match of ball speed, launch angle, and spin rate, maximises the distance you’ll get off the tee. A change of just 1° and 500rpm can unlock 20 metres. How much potential can we unlock for you? Act now.

How good could you be?

A reason to stay connected

This might be one of the most compelling reasons to practice together with at least one friend.

If you’ve set out on a “Deliberate Practice Plan” to acquire a new skill or master a particular shot, then you need feedback. Get someone to video your swing. Now you can observe your setup, swing, and focus on the new movement you’re after. We might think we’re making a full shoulder turn, but what does the evidence show us?

You need someone to share a drink with

Getting friends to practice, provides the opportunity for fun competition, feedback, and a shared experience afterward. We’d be happy to help make your sessions as productive as possible with some extra advice and feedback.
