It is official. I took over the operations at the Hawk at Rebecca Creek Golf Club in Spring Branch, Texas on Friday April 15th. I embrace the challenge and look forward to bringing fresh ideas to the golf course to increase play and overall activity. The golf course is located about 24 miles north of San Antonio in the Texas Hill Country and has some of the most beautiful views of the Texas Hill Country you will ever see. The course is in great shape and has the lowest green fee in the area. From the back tees it measures 6863 yrds and can me a good test for golfers of all abilities. The Hawk at Rebecca Creek offers a full service dining experience and full bar in the rustic setting of the historic club house. The restaurant-bar will accommodate up to 100 people and has a large fireplace and four HDTV flat screen TV’s for viewing sporting events. Unusual for a public facility, there is a large diving pool open to the public. Food and bar service is available poolside. I was very fortunate to inherit a very fine and capable staff. It is our hope to offer you an incredible golf experience when you visit The Hawk at Rebecca Creek. This is the friendliest golf course in the Texas Hill Country. The club has a great practice range and a large practice putting green. If you are in the area you can book a private lesson. My schedule at this time will only allow me to give about 4 golf lessons a day by appointment.
If you are having problems with your short pitch shots, chances are that your body is too rigid and you are swinging just with your hands and your arms. This flippy type of swing will make you inconsistent at best.
Try swinging with a mini version of your full swing allowing your body to turn with the shot as you would with a full swing. Remember the following: Swing the club down and the ball will go up, conversely, swing the club up to hit the ball down. A steep angle of attack is necessary with your short pitch shots. If you pitching swing is flippy, you will be swinging the club up at impact and the result will either be a fat or thin shot. Remember your mini-swing to eliminate the problem.
If you ever get to the Texas Hill Country, by all means stop and see me. If not please sign up for the oldproblog email club or leave a comment about favorite subject. Until next time, Good Golfing !!!!
