Alternate Construction Dates due to the SDC
Due to the 4-day SDC Championship, we will not permit any construction to take place between 29 February and 2 March 2024. These dates fall over a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We find that construction noise during professional championships disturb the professional players.

We will instead permit work to take place on alternate days.  This message therefore confirms the dates of the alternate workdays, as follows:

•    Thursday 21 March 2024 (Human Rights Day – between 06h30 and 18h00)
•    Saturday 27 April 2024  (Freedom Day – between 07h00 and 13h00)
•    Wednesday 1 May 2024 (Workers Day – between 06h30 and 18h00)

We thank you in advance for your cooperation!

More good stuff!
We invite our members to wear red and to bring balloons, streamers and ribbons … let’s have some Valentine’s Golf fun!
And then more that night!

Unlock extra distance
Let’s find your launch zone
Driver hitting zones have become larger to better forgive off-centre strikes. But there’s an even more important zone that affects your distance. It’s the one at which launch angle and spin rate are just right for YOUR swing speed.
Should you be launching it higher or lower? Let’s find out.
Let’s find out
Faster swings generally require a lower launch angle with less spin while slower swings are generally better off with a higher launch and more spin to keep the ball airborne for longer.
No metre untapped
When we know your swing and launch characteristics, we can set you up with a loft and shaft that helps you generate just the right amount of spin and launch. Get every metre you’re capable of.

New year, new game
Less is more
Too many putts can be the difference between a memorable round and one to forget. When it comes to putting, less is more. And if you want to shave strokes and have more fun on the greens, we’ll need to start with some key basics.
This way to fewer putts
According to the USGA, the average golfer takes 2.2 putts per green. If you improve upon that by just 10%, you’re saving about four strokes per round!
Is there a distance you find trickier than others? Close range? Lag putting? The beauty is that many of the same basics apply, like keeping your head still and following through on your intended line.

Lacking the basics of putting is more common than you might think, and it could be the root cause of your struggles.

Your best year ever
Nail the basics and make this your best golfing year ever!

This journey’s better when it’s shorter
Every golfer wants a shorter approach shot. Getting into that position starts on the tee. And here’s how we’re going to help you get there.
Use technology like this
New technology is making the game easier. The Rebound Frame on Srixon’s ZX Mk II Driver is a perfect example. When working on your long game, it’s definitely a club worth considering.

Let’s shorten the journey
We want you to fly further and straighter off the tee. We want you in the scoring zone with a shorter approach, more often.
