South Africa has great attractions for the passionate golfers. Our PASH India newsletter in this edition has shortlisted two of the most inspiring provinces along with exciting golf courses, as we join hands with the global community to pay our tribute to the visionary Nelson Mandela on his first death anniversary.

To set sail in South Africa, golf aficionados should ideally start from the place where the sun rises known as the Mpumalanga province. A18-hole championship golf club- Leopard Creek Golf Club is a star attraction here in this geographically diverse and unbelievably beautiful eastern province.

Moving to the northernmost province of South Africa, golf has a new unique lifetime golfing experience waiting to welcome our passionate golfers in the very heart Limpopo Province. Golf legends, politicians, celebrities and even media from across the world of sport and entertainment have been overwhelmed with this Africa shaped unique golfing experience accessible only by helicopter service.

Happy Reading!

ON THE SPOTLIGHT
South Africa’s impressive Mpumalanga province, also known as the land of the rising sun, is a lovely treat for golfers. Located in the east of South Africa, north of KwaZulu-Natal and bordering Swaziland and Mozambique- Mpumalanga is geographically diverse and unbelievably beautiful.

Being one of the smaller provinces in South Africa- Mpumalanga brings one closer to nature. The best part here is that discerning golfers can visit along with families on a holiday. While one enjoys exciting golfing action on stunning golf courses, the other members of the family can go out to experience different attractions including exhilarating wildlife, secluded mountain retreats, wild water sports and some of South Africa's most diverse and vibrant African cultures.

Mpumalanga’s major draw is the massive Blyde River Canyon, which carves its way spectacularly through the Drakensberg Escarpment. Also, the province is close to Kruger’s park gates, with an excellent selection of lodges and wilderness activities right at the doorstep.

Love for golf and a shared reverence for nature among ardent golfers makes the 18-hole championship golf club- Leopard Creek Golf Club a must attraction in South Africa. Situated near Malelane in the heart of Mpumalanga, Leopard
Creek is bordered to the north and the west by the picturesque Crocodile River and the Kruger National Park.

Spread over 360 hectares, Leopard Creek is truly an unobtrusive part of the nature and serves as an ideal course. Innovative architectural and landscaping techniques ensure that the Leopard Creek golf course and living areas are naturally protected from animals, while lakes and small streams have been diverted through the development to create scenic vistas and interesting golf strategies It has made extensive use of the natural environment and sightings of crocodile, hippopotamus, antelope, buffalo and elephant commonplace, on the course or in the Kruger Park bordering the course.

The 505 metre par-five 13th is one of Leopard Creek’s most memorable holes. Here the green is right on the edge of the river but 32 metres above the level of the water, offering magnificent views of the river and into the Kruger Park.
Limpopo province in the northernmost of South Africa is a brilliant attraction in South Africa for golf enthusiasts. Blessed with exceeding natural beauty, Limpopo meets every golf fanatic’s expectation apart from being a truly great eco-tourist destination.

Limpopo has its etymological origin in Sepedi word diphororo tša meetse - meaning strong gushing waterfalls. This province is a sought-after tourist destination with exceptional birding opportunities, natural landscapes and remnants of an historic African kingdom, the centre of which was located at Mapungubwe National Park.

Golf enthusiasts visiting this province must avail the opportunity to tee off at the 19th hole. Located on the majestic Hanglip Mountain with greens shaped like Africa, this is accessible only by helicopter. It is one of the must do for every golfer. Also there are breathtaking wildlife reserves found in two different regions within Limpopo- namely Greater Kruger Park and the Waterberg.

Hero Moto signs Tiger Woods in a record Rs 250 cr deal

Tiger Woods now has an Indian connection. In a major coup, Indian two-wheeler giant Hero MotoCorp has signed the 14-time major winner as its brand ambassador.

Tiger Woods has signed a 4-year deal with the company for Rs 250 crore. Woods in fact had made a day's trip to India at the invitation of Hero MD Pawan Munjal earlier this year and played a round of golf at the Delhi Golf Club.

He said he was very shocked and surprised with the huge turnout at the Delhi Golf Club. He believes Indians just love sports with cricket being number one. "I think the country just loves sports and to have the ability to play there in Delhi and to have Munjal here and to have all the people that were there so excited about the sport was exciting to see," he added.

Meanwhile, Munjal adds that it is too early to get Woods to play a tournament in India but surely during their partnership he (Woods) will come back and hopefully play one of the Hero Indian Opens too.

Hero Moto is also sponsoring the world challenge which will see 18 of the top 26 golfers in the world compete over the coming weekend. This deal is one of the biggest signed by an Indian company with an international celebrity and is in keeping with the company’s desire to be present in 50 countries by 2020.

Golf Tip
Part I: Before You Swing
Lesson #12: Consider A Bit Of Flare

At address, my right foot points perpendicular to the target line, but my left foot flares out almost thirty degrees to the left. That's a lot. The reason I do this is that it helps me get my left side out of the way and turn fully through impact. The flip side of this is that the flared-out left toe restricts my hip turn away from the ball and thus limits the length of my backswing. That's not a liability for me, however, because I've been blessed with a supple body.

If you have trouble turning through the ball, I recommend that you experiment with this flared left toe. Just be careful not to allow the alignment of your feet, hips, and shoulders to open.

Conversely, if you want to make a more full and free turn on your backswing, try experimenting with a flared right toe. Just bear in mind that this can inhibit your turn through impact.
