About the course at
The Club at Sonterra


The Club At Sonterra features two 18-hole championship golf courses which offer unique settings and challenges: North and Canyon Creek Course. Designed by Bruce Devlin & Robert von Hagge and built in 1985, the North Course has rolling hills as far as the eye can see with beautiful 419 Bermuda fairways, Champion Bermuda greens and beautiful waterfalls. The Canyon Creek Course appeals to the traditional golfer; a Press Maxwell design, built in 1954, among acres upon acres of large oak trees, with its Tif Dwarf greens and heavily tree lined Bermuda fairways.

        Re: MGA Dues Notification
 
According to our records, the MGA dues have only increased $5 in the past 10 years. This has made it increasingly difficult to provide an excellent tournament experience for our members as costs continue to rise. Effective July 1st, 2017, the MGA (Men’s Golf Association) is implementing a billing adjustment. Currently we are operating at a deficit. To get back in the black, all MGA members will be assessed a semi-annual membership due of $75 instead of $30 starting with this next cycle. Following the Sonterra Cup the board will analyze the budget and make its recommendations for 2018.

With these additional funds, we intend to enhance everyone’s experience with better food, tournament payouts and prizes, as well more social events & smokers. Nick Vanderpool of Principle Auto Group (BMW) has offered to provide a Hole-In-One prize for the remaining events this year.

We look forward to a great finish to 2017.
 
Sincerely,
2017 MGA Board

Instruction & Clinics

A Note from Tim Hobby, Director of Instruction

I like to teach within a philosophy, not a system, because it gives me more flexibility to fit a student's needs. It is extremely important to assess each student’s ability, desires, goals, and commitment to practice and then develop a teaching plan that will enable them to be successful. All aspects of their game will be evaluated, including driver, iron play, short game, and most importantly, the mental approach.  

While there are some elements of the swing which can be universally applied, I believe it is essential to analyze each student’s abilities and limitations and design a plan for them which will help them achieve a swing they are capable of repeating. My definition of a good golf swing is one where the ball travels the correct distance, with accuracy, repeats time after time, but most importantly produces low golf scores. Yes, there are certain fundamentals that I prefer to incorporate to my students, but it is important not to try to fit everyone into a certain model fo swing. I want all of my students to leave the lesson tee with improved swing shape, but most importantly improved ball flight and confindence that they can repeat the swing on the golf course. It is also extremely importanrt to incorporate short game skills into the lesson plan, since for most golfers about 60% of the game is played inside of 125 yards.  

After abilities and limitations are established, tactics will vary from player to player depending on his or her Abilities and Overall Goals. It will also depend on the student’s time commitment to practice. It is critical to have a firm understanding of the student’s goals and abilities before moving forward with my game plan. Some players who are an 18 handicap and have been an 18 for a long time and are playing to a 24 and all they want to do is get back on track. On the other side of the spectrum, we may have a player who is a 10 handicap, but is willing to change his method and commit to lessons and practice. My approach to those two golfers would be different.

As no golf swing is the same, I cannot approach each student the same. Every person learns a little different. Some learn by feel, others by seeing, and some by hearing. Therefore, it is important to incorporate the use of V1 digital video system and various training aids. I also love to use mirrors, weighted clubs, impact bags and shafts to give the student as many pictures as possible, the V1 Video System allows the student to see rapid improvement and the “before and after” over the time we have been working together.

Lastly, I think it is important to provide instruction options that fit the student. I prefer to establish a long relationship with my students and feel they receive the best results when we both make a commitment to improvement. Usually, they will find the best results when they commit to several lessons. I have found that most students did not get into badhabits overnight, and if they genuinely want to improve, it will take some time to ingrain proper technique. Students who will opt for my “Golf Education & Training Program” will experience extraordinary results. The GOLF EDUCATION & TRAINING program allows students to take two hours of instruction per week for a 3, 6, or 12 month period. I will also play and take these students on the golf course for game time situation practice and playing lessons. I have also incorporated weekly and bi-weekly golf clinics, as well as one and two golf schools for every level of golfer.

It is unreasonable to think that all students will become scratch golfers, but it is not out of reach for everyone to improve on their method. It is a game for a lifetime, why not enjoy it and try to compete at a higher level?
