Junior Summer Golf Classes
I'm very pleased to say that my Junior Summer Golf Classes are again being held this year. There are two weeks of classes and the first week runs from Monday 14th July to Friday 18th July inclusive and the second week runs between Tuesday 26th August to Friday 29th August inclusive. Each day begins at 9am and lasts until 10:45am and is a great way for kids to get some good, old-fashioned fresh air and exercise! So, if you'd like your child/grandchild to participate, please stop by the Pro Shop, collect a form and return it with your cheque. But please hurry because spaces are limited and I've already had several reservations!
I don’t know about you but the regular “lead-acid” batteries don’t seem to last very long these days, so the answer is simple: a brand new lithium battery. These batteries are so good in so many ways and the benefits over a lead-acid are numerous, such as, they will recharge in about three hours, you will get about five times more life out of a lithium than a lead-acid, they’re more powerful and they’re incredibly light! And at £199.99 , they will also come with a brand new charger and a fantastic two year unlimited warranty and a five year limited warranty. So for further details, please pop into the Pro Shop.
R & A and the anchoring debate
And finally this week, if you haven’t already seen the news, I have a link to the R & A website that will allow you to see in pictures, just what they declare “anchoring” is and isn’t. How they’ll enforce it though, is anyone’s guess!
Waterproof cart bags
There's definitely a trend towards waterproof golf bags and I'm certainly selling more of these so I'm pleased to tell you that I now have in stock some really super waterproof bags. These 14 way organiser bags come in a very inoffensive black colour, are fairly lightweight and will fit onto just about every electric trolley and just as importantly, they're about £40 or £50 cheaper than other well-known brands. So if you're thinking about a new waterproof trolley bag, you know where to come.

And finally, as many of you know, my assistant Jack was very badly assaulted in southern Spain at the start of April and his injuries have been very serious. Unfortunately, Jack contacted me on Monday and has decided that he will now be resigning his position with me and will be staying in Spain. I'd like to thank Jack for all his efforts and wish him a full recovery and a speedy to return to normal life.
