Matt’s Foundation’s Annual Charity Golf Day A Great Success

The Matt’s Foundation Annual Charity Golf Day took place on 17 October 2014 at the Riviera on Vaal Country Club. The day proved to be quite a success as golfers descended to the golf course in support of raising funds for disadvantaged children in the Vaal.

New Head of Coaching at Riviera on Vaal Country Club

Golf lessons

     Natasha Swanepoel – Head of Coaching at Riviera on Vaal Country Club

Meet the newest member of the Riviera on Vaal Country Club team! Natasha Swanepoel studied sport science specializing in golf at the University of Pretoria, the first institute to combine a degree with the PGA requirements. During her 3 years of studying, part of the practical requirements was to coach under the TuksGolf name, coaching all ages. After her degree, she worked at Kempton Park Golf Club where she was involved with coaching group sessions for school kids and the Development Academy where she taught basic golf to under privileged kids. She recently started working at Riviera on Vaal ProShop, and has taken over the coaching.

Golf lessons

Anyone is welcome to come for lessons. Kids get the opportunity to learn basic golf and also develop motor learning skills. Men have the opportunity to master their golf as well as master a specific shot desired. Ladies have an opportunity to spend quality time with their partners by learning the game and being able to play a round of golf with them. “Golf is a working progress and should be taught from a step by step approach,” where she begins her focus with the 4 basic fundamentals of golf. Once these four fundamentals are mastered, you will move on the 5 laws of golf. Last but not least are the technicalities of golf, the shot principles and the list goes on. This is more specific to your individual faults and will be her focus with the more advanced players.

Lessons are available for new golfers (from primary school up to adults) as well as advanced players who would like to improve their technique. For more information about golf lessons, please contact the ProShop on 016 420 1347.
