|Divan Marais (our VIP of the week) had an amazing round of golf on Saturday. He aced the 3rd hole, parred the 7th and then birdied the 12th, 15th and 17th! Five under on the par 3's – that's quite a run! |
If you recall we have a VW Polo Car up for grabs on the 3rd as a Hole in One prize, but you must pay to be a part of the challenge. If you take part and you make a hole in one, you will get to walk away with a brand new car valued at R130 000! Don't let this close call happen to you – ask in the shop for details!
The Zwartkop Hole in One Car
|On Wednesday we had a golf day for Joost van der Westhuizen called 'Golf for Joost'. Zwartkop was a celebrity 'mecca' with the likes of Sasha Martinengo, Darren Scott, Simon Hill, Jannie de Beer, James Small, Frik du Preez, Derek Watts and of course our own Zwartkop 4 ball, Glen Pienaar, Justin Gordon, Jacques du Toit and Russell Franz. The day started with a helicopter that landed on the 15th tee to bring the guest of honour, followed by a fun-filled day of golf and then the prize giving dinner. In between we had Carte Blanch on the course interviewing players and following Joost around. He definitely reminds us about the quote from Mary Anne Radmacheris: "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says 'I'll try again tomorrow'."|

Variety of Bruschettas; Peri-Peri Chicken Livers with Fresh Bread; Bacon, Feta and Avo Salad.

This weekend we saw some amazing things… The Chiefs whipped the Sharks in a one-sided affair and the pinnacle of the Olympics, the men's 100m on Sunday evening, was electric as Usain Bolt ran a 9.63 to set a new Olympic record.
Our new Zwartkop logoed shirts have just arrived in stock and are some of the best looking shirts around. I mean these shirts are so good and we have all sizes that I even got Clive Maher
to buy a couple.
Remember that from now on, every time you pay and hire out a golf cart, you will receive a free 100 plus isotonic cool drink.
Well done to Phatiswe Malinga

News from the Gym
Why Golf is Good for You
Golf is more than often been thought of as a passive sport and that it does not really require any real level of fitness. Well in reality, golf incorporates more fitness than you think: cardio exercise, strength training, and balance and coordination.
This is one of the best parts of golf and from a fitness point of view an excellent way to improve and strengthen your cardiovascular system.
Lifting your golf bag from your car to the course, and carrying it around the course with you all day, is an excellent way to get your upper body strength training in for the week.
One of the most excellent types of exercise that you can get from golfing is an increased ability to balance your body. Whenever you get a chance to work on improving your balance, you should do it.
Golf helps you to remember numbers, images, and even specific tips and techniques. And for that reason, golf is a great all-round way to exercise both body and mind.
