Welcome to Bosch Hoek Golf Club
Dear Members, Guests and Visitors,
Spring has arrived and brought with it a wealth of colour & lush greenery! The Bentgrass Greens continue to receive rave reviews and our fairways are responding well to the first rains that have fallen!
I would like to take the opportunity to welcome PGA Professional, Brad Ross as the new Golf Operations Manager at Bosch Hoek Golf Club. Brad, his wife Candice and young Cameron have joined us from Durban and we wish them many happy years in the beautiful KZN Midlands.
Brad has played and been involved in the Golf Industry for ten years during which time he earned his Diploma in Golf Directorship and Club Management. He completed his studies through the PGA of South Africa and has earned the title of PGA Professional.
Brad is available to offer you advice and insight into the dynamics of your golf swing, golf course management and club fitting. Please feel free to contact Brad on 033 234 4232 to book a private lesson or just pop into the ProShop for a chat!
The Clubhouse continues to be a hive of activity with numerous events, including the 2015 Rugby World Cup, hosted by our Events Manager, Kayleigh Page. Keep up to date with our events by liking our Facebook page www.facebook.com/boschhoek
I trust you will enjoy the unique experience of one of the most picturesque and deceptively challenging parkland golf courses, with every hole presenting its own beauty and character. This Bob Grimsdell designed 9 hole, 18 tee-box golf course guides you around a lake, dams, streams and beautiful trees, creating a wonderful golfing experience since 1963.
The Clubhouse enhances the overall “Bosch Hoek Experience” and the Staff will certainly provide you with a friendly and efficient service.
My family and I are privileged to own such a special piece of real estate, situated in the heart of the KZN Midlands Meander and our hope is that you will enjoy it as much as we do. We look forward to hosting you at Bosch Hoek Golf Club in the not too distant future.
The Gem Has Become A Polished Diamond
“I know I waxed lyrically the last time I played Bosch Hoek Golf Club, and because of this I must admit that prior to our arrival I was a bit concerned that the little gem would not be what it used to be after the extensive upgrade…..
As you well know, I had no reason to be worried, as to use the cliché, “the gem has become a polished diamond!”
In my amateur design opinion the changes to the course are fantastic!! Both Par 5’s, as well as the beautiful new Par 3 7th have enhanced the course to the extent where you now have a proper Championship experience with such a great mix and balance of holes. I love the fact that you have left the 2nd hole almost as is and the strong Par 4 finish to both 9’s ensures that you need to have your “A” game when you finish the round!
Congratulations, I think you and your team have done an outstanding job – the rest of the experience was as per the last time – great staff, great service and great food in awesome surroundings.
It is honestly one of my favourite golfing experiences in South Africa!
My boys made me laugh as when we arrived we were not sure whether to play 9 or 18 holes, but literally after a few holes, both of them said we are definitely playing 18! Then when we were leaving they said it has to become a family tradition to play Bosch Hoek Golf Club each time we pass it….I think that says it all!
Thank you once again and we will be back (often) that much I can assure you!!”
Etiquette On Greens & In Bunkers
One of the most frustrating things for green keepers everywhere is to deal with the damage caused to the surface of a green by golf pitch marks. Well, actually, it isn’t the damage that’s frustrating. The damage is inevitable. What’s frustrating is when golfers are far too lazy to repair those golf pitch marks resulting in damage to the greens and impacting on the smoothness of the putting surface. This is not rocket science, but good golf etiquette.
