BFA Testimonial

Ben’s approach to teaching golf is holistic and involves more than just hitting golf balls on a range. Ben addresses both the technical as well as the psychological side of golf.  Ben is approachable, sincere, honest and has patience, yet he does not beat about the bush. Many a day have I driven to Boschenmeer tired after work and Ben just has a way of injecting energy with his teaching. After each lesson I felt boosted. The golf stories he tells are amazing and always told to make a point about an aspect of one’s own golf. He has become a friend!  Ben can pull principles of the game of golf through to issues away from the golf course to great effect and so he has also become a mentor in my life in general. I also feel obliged to say that I have watched him teaching children and saw yet more of Ben’s wisdom: He will not push a child in an unhealthy way and will discourage unhealthy pressure on children, all while teaching them the correct technical way. He encourages them to enjoy the game…and that is the lesson for all of us: Enjoying the game of golf.

Congratulations to Arno Marais who won the longest drive with the Srixon’s new driver which was on demo.

Well done to the winner of the straightest drive – Richard Ward.

From Willem’s desk

How does the new slope and course rating affect my handicap?

I have recently received a lot of questions from members regarding the “new” handicaps and how all the different factors affect them.

Here is an article to explain how the new slope and course ratings will affect the player’s handicap which will hopefully answer most of your questions!
