photo-main-pageRoyal Durban is not only unique in its setting and character, but is one of South Africa's most demanding championship courses. The length of 6115 metres could be considered a short course by modern day standards, however in Durban's humid sub tropical atmosphere it plays more like 6500 metres with little run on its lush fairways.

Garth's Golf tips

To escape fairway bunkers, you must make good ball-first contact. Avoid hitting the sand first. If you take sand after the ball, like a normal divot, that’s fine. When you hit the sand first, the club slows down and will result in a shot that comes up well short of the green. To make good ball-first club contact, you must adjust your setup. Place the ball slightly back in your stance. This will result in hitting the ball first before bottoming out and hitting the sand. Another setup key is to grip down slightly on the club about half an inch. Doing this makes the club slightly shorter and more difficult to hit the sand too soon during the swing. As a result, take one extra club so you can make a controlled swing.
