Men's President's Prize
On Sunday, our Club President Jim Goff, held his annual President's Prize and the format was a fourball betterball stableford and with 33 teams chomping at the bit, teams had to play well to feature in the prizes. And so it turned out to be as Howard Olivere & John Yule recorded 43 points to win by one from the strong pairing of Andrew Hartley & Roger Cook.
Men's Midweek Stableford
And on Thursday afternoon, Keith Young and Ken Whitton each played some cracking golf to record 39 points apiece, with Keith winning on countback.
Lady Captain's Day
In Thursday's Lady Captain's Day, Jackie Tannett ran a fourball betterball stableford event and the scoring was excellent because Pauline Twogood & Emma Boddington won with a superb score of 41 points whilst the runners-up were Lesley Travis & Sue Cross returning a fine score of 40 points.
Seniors' Spring Meeting & Captain's Day
On Friday morning, Seniors' Captain John Pigott had his Captain's Day and took on the might of Woburn and won 3 ½ - 2 ½.
Juniors' June Stableford
On Saturday, Bill Meacock - a new Junior member - set about compiling a score of 47 points in his first stableford and promptly saw his handicap cut from 45 to 36! Nick Woof, playing off five, also played well in compiling 44 points.
Junior Summer Golf Classes
FYI, my first Junior Summer Golf Class is now completely full but there is a second week booked which 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.
New Under Armour and Greg Norman club logoed shirts
If you haven't already seen these fantastic shirts, I'm pleased to tell you that I have just received some beautiful and high quality shirts from both Under Armour and Greg Norman. Both companies have club logoed the shirts for me and there are some striking designs and colours so if you'd like to find a great gift for Fathers' Day or you'd simply like to freshen up your wardrobe, you know where to come!
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.
Men's Callaway ¼ zip merino sweaters
If you're looking for a truly beautiful and superb quality ¼ zip sweater, look no further because I have the solution. I have just taken delivery of the superb ¼ zip Callaway merino sweater and these sweaters are absolutely beautiful. They have the softest of feels against the skin, come in light grey, light blue, petrol blue or black and are NOT club logoed which means they can be worn anywhere. I anticipate these items will sell through quickly so please come in to the Pro Shop soon to avoid disappointment.

And finally, I now have a new assistant in the Pro Shop in the shape of Tom Butler. Tom has worked for me before and, as a member of the club, knows exactly what's what and how things are done so I'm looking forward to Tom starting officially from the 1st July, although he will be working several days in June.
Keep your putting simple
At the setup position, ensure the ball is positioned in the middle of the putter and that your putter face is aimed where you want to start the ball and in the actual stroke, simply work on rocking your arms and shoulders whilst thinking purely about hard you need to hit the ball.
