Second prize is R3000 and a third prize of R2000 is to be won. The charge per ball is R100. Important to note that this is an attendance draw, therefore you have to be present to win.

Once we get the 100 Club Draw going with some good momentum, the proceeds from this initiative will go to the constant improvement of our wonderful golf course.

There will be a number of specials on offer in the Bistro on all 100 Club evenings, so we look forward to creating a superb atmosphere along with some of the best dining Durban has to offer.

Nicholas is currently playing league for DCC and has a wonderful understanding of the game and will undoubtedly be a valuable asset to the DCC team.

Golf Fitness Misconception #5

I have to mimic the golf swing in the gym to get “golf fit”

Many keen golfers, recognising the need to strengthen the body to improve their golf game, hit the gym with their golf swing in mind. Generally the go to piece of equipment is the cable machine to perform some kind of weighted golf swing. “Golfish” exercises can be detrimental to your swing, despite the best intentions. You will have competing motor demands. Basically, in your attempt to replicate the swing, your brain files that information in the golf swing folder. After performing numerous altered swing patterns in the gym, these habits will cross over into your swing, impacting your mechanics. With the additional weight attached, you may sacrifice technique and stability in an attempt to mould that sought after swing position, in the process making unnecessary compensations. The best way to enhance the body to optimize performance is to develop sufficient stability, mobility and strength in a holistic manner, focussing on improving human movement quality such as squatting, lunging, hip hinging, pulling and pushing. When you become proficient in these movements, that movement literacy will carry over into you being able to meet the physical demands of the swing.
