Kloof Country Club is very proud of resident Golf Professional Kate Brett-Castle Well done Kate – You have made many woman, aspiring golfers and Kloof very proud! Here is the full article from Michael Vlismas of Sport News. Michael Vlismas JOHANNESBURG (5 October 2016) – The PGA of South Africa recognised the important role women play in golf when they named KwaZulu-Natal professional Kate Brett-Castle as their 2016 Apprentice of the Year at their annual awards ceremony. And Brett-Castle is determined to be further inspiration for this. The former UK native and now PGA teaching professional at Kloof Country Club believes her success can inspire more women to follow a similar path in the game. “Sally Little was one of my idols. Her and Nancy Lopez were the inspiration for me because they showed me there were women playing the game and doing well. I never wanted to play the game as a touring professional. I got more enjoyment out of teaching the game. “Now I want to show people that you don’t have to only be good and elite to be allowed on the golf course and that women can enjoy the game at their level as well,” says Brett-Castle. Brett-Castle was raised in the United Kingdom and remembers her first golf coach there saying she wouldn’t go any further in learning the game unless she changed her grip. “For me, becoming a PGA professional was about filling a gap that’s been there all of my life. If I had found a me to help me with my coaching when I was young I would not have felt so intimidated or shy in the game. Thankfully the game now is so much more pro-active in terms of getting juniors into golf and helping them at whatever level they play the game.” Brett-Castle is also hoping to bring her unique experience of being a woman in golf to also studying the differences between men and women’s golf swings. “I’m very interested in the differences in coaching women compared with men, especially when it comes to the differences in their bodies and biomechanics and that’s something I’m studying further now.” Photo: Kate Brett-Castle is congratulated by Paul Marks (left), chairman of the PGA of South Africa, and Ivano Ficalbi (right), Chief Executive Officer of the PGA of South Africa, after being named the association’s 2016 Apprentice of the Year.
