 NEWSLETTER JUNE 2017

 

Dear Members,

 Funny thing is that we golfers are often a grumpy lot. Just as the winter chill reduces the veracity of the rough, allows the ball to scoot on another few metres on the drives and our poa anua greens blossom with the reduced heat, we find ourselves with a range of excuses as to why our scores are not improving. A selection of such heard on the course recently include:

  •  The greens are too hard,
  • The ground is too hard,
  • The greens are too fast,
  • I always seem to find the holes in the rough,
  • I am so cold I can’t turn / swing / bend / feel etc. etc. etc.

It is true that the winter chill creates issues for us all, however the challenge is to embrace this! After all, many of us who have faced the morning chill and watched the sun rise have enjoyed the stark beauty and stillness of a Highveld winters morning – enjoy! It was the great Ben Hogan who once said:

 “As you walk down the fairway of life, you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.”

Members are reminded to please repair all pitch marks, to carry a sandbag at all times and to use it on the fairways to ensure these stay as lush as possible during our winter months. We would also appeal to all members to keep our course as clean as possible by using the waste bins situated on the teeboxes to dispose of waste – it only takes a moment and makes for a much better experience for all.

  

Regards,
