The Annual PGA Junior Pro AM
This past weekend the PGA of KZN hosted the annual PGA Junior Pro AM at San Lameer. It was an absolute privilege to be involved in this event and to see the future of golf in our country looking so bright. The event would not have been possible without the assistance of the PGA, San Lameer, The Mark McNulty Foundation as well as some of our members.
Thank you to Neil Loudon (Cuzzie) from Umzolozolo 5 star Game Lodge, Bryan Mahler from Watches Unlimited, Richard Downey from Thule, Melville Vogel from Sun International and Monica Blomefield from the Mount Edgecombe Driving Range. Your generosity went a long way to making this such a wonderful event.

A swing tip for the more advanced players
As you can see Shaun has battles with keeping a nice strong base to his swing. His legs were out of “sync” and this affects his power and consistency. In the video you will see the drills we worked on to help this.
National Golf Day
Monday, 3 September is National Golf Day and all 6 of South Africa’s major winners have signed up to take you on! That means if you sign up to play in the National Golf Day, you will have the opportunity to challenge your golfing heroes head to head in a Stableford scoring event, live.
Everyone has their own day. There are famous days like Braai Day on the 24th of September and Valentines Day on February 14th. But we’re excited to announce that now there is a National Golf Day. This is a day dedicated entirely to golfers. A day for those who love the game, play the game, want to play the game or used to play the game.
Visit the website for more information or to sign up.
PRO CAR | For hassle free estate living
PRO CAR CARTS are a proud partner of the Range. If you need any assistance with buying or maintaining your cart, please give them a call.
We want to help more of our golfers experience the joy of a sweetly struck, accurate iron shot more often.
That means increasing consistency, and how square to target line the club face is at impact.
None of this is helped by manufacturer’s all having different ‘standard’ lengths on their clubs.
We reviewed four models from four major manufacturer’s and there was nearly an inch between
their standard #7 iron lengths.
Get fitted. “You’re worth it”, especially if you’re inexperienced, or inconsistent in your ball striking.
Experienced and supremely skilled athletes can make swing adjustments to poorly fitted irons. The rest of us can’t.
We want everyone; irrespective of their background, their gender, or their age; to experience
golf as potentially the greatest social and healthy activity available to them.
To do that, we’ve had to catch up with the changes in the world.
This is a great advert that highlights how much more important healthy, social, outdoor activity is to married couples
as they approach retirement.
This sort of social commentary (and advertisers who understand their market) clearly demonstrates that past-times are shared by couples. Less and less does a husband or wife disappear.
If you have a spouse who doesn’t play golf; they may have had a negative experience previously;
then let us introduce them to a world of healthy, outdoor, very social enjoyment.
We need to keep our current participants playing the game, and even make it possible for them to play more often.
We also need more golfers. So, two birds and one stone. If you have a partner who doesn’t play golf,
then send them to us, and let us introduce them to the best outdoor activity forever!
