Our Team is growing

A new member to our teaching team

I am very happy to introduce our new assistant Professional, Sikhumbuzo Professor Mthethwa.

sikhumbuzo joins the team

Sikhumbuzo was a part of the eta/ CATHSETA PGA Training programme that we ran 2 years ago, and he hails from the Umhlali area. Sikhumbuzo has played a lot of competitive golf and earned his Tour Card, but has decided that he would like to build a career in teaching. The next time you come up the Range I am sure you will see him, and as is his style, he will probably have a chat and introduce himself to you.

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.

We want you to hit better shots more often; to invest some time in improvement; and enjoy that journey.
So why not, with 3 friends, book 9 holes of playing lesson with us?

golf shots

We’ll play a Scramble Drive (so you all play our 1st and 2nd shots together);
you’ll have a laugh with your friends (or make new friends);
and we’ll give you swing coaching and game management advice over the 2 hours.

golf coaching

Improve while playing

Playing golf, accompanied by a golf coach, for most golfers, is the best way to develop your golf game.
It’s also a lot less expensive than 2 hours of lessons. Whether there’s four of you or not,
if you’re interested in improving your golf this way, then please:

Happy golfing!

golf approaching shots

My thought for this week is, “Don’t come up short on approach shots.” A study revealed that the most common miss by amateur golfers is short. When we look at club choice, amateurs select a club for approach shots that, if they hit it perfectly, will get to the middle of the green. Try a round where you choose a club that should get to the very back of the green, and then see if you hit more greens.

Contact us if we can help.

finding the putter fit for you

Making more putts, reducing three-putts, has a direct impact on your scorecard.
Find a putter that best suits your technique and the conditions of the courses you play.

Putters can be adjusted to fit your
exact putting technique, specifications,
and preferences to ensure you make more
putts more easily.

What you think you’re doing wrong versus what
