Odyssey Putter Fittings coming to Rossdale!

Have you ever wondered why the “professionals” putt so well? Would you expect them to just pick up a putter in a shop and purchase it because it looked nice or felt good? 

I hope majority answered “no” to this question. Professionals and any good golfer would be specifically fitted for their putter. The aim in a putter fitting is to fit a putter to your stroke type, not the other way around.

If this sounds great to you, and you want to improve your putting, book in a fitting at Rossdale Golf Club in the second week of February with Michael, Ben and Elissa to get a “FREE” fitting. 

This is a rare opportunity so get in quick!


Dress Code for playing golf at Rossdale Golf Club

It has been brought to staff’s attention in the Golf Shop the dress code of Rossdale Golf Club members needs to be addressed. At times, we do forget the odd dress code and sometimes forget to mention to our guests what attire must be worn for golf at Rossdale.

Please take the time to refresh your knowledge of the expectations of Rossdale Golf Club.

Acceptable Attire

  • Collared Polo shirt and tailored shorts and regulation golfing shoes must be worn by players at all times. 
  • Golf style shoes with soft spikes only 
  • Socks of any length may be worn with shorts and must be predominantly white or black. 

Unacceptable attire

  • No clothing with large or excessive logos 
  • No track and leisure suits or sport shorts 
  • No denim clothing or jeans 

    “Pro” Tip of the week

    Uphill and downhill lies can certainly catch us all out at times.

    When you are faced with a shot like this, always remember your body set up and weight distribution must go with the slope of the land. If you are trying to keep “back behind” the ball you might have trouble with making consistent connection.

    Sidehill lies is another difficult component of playing undulating courses;

    A quick tip when the ball is below your feet at address, ensure your hand grip is at the top end of the club and aim more left of target than normal as your ball when come out with a fade effect. When the ball is above your feet, ensure you grip down on the grip a small amount aim more right of target than you normally would as the ball will come out with a draw effect.

    If you are still having trouble, be sure to book a lesson with Michael, Ben or Helen in the Pro Shop to get your game into shape today! 

    Phone our professionals: 9580 1008 or email golfshop@rossdalegolf.com.au
