Titleist company logoed golf balls
Do you have your own company or work for a company that would like some company logoed golf balls? If the answer is yes, I'd be happy to supply you with Titleist Pro V1 golf balls for just £39.99 per dozen. This price includes VAT as well as your company logo in full colour on one pole (on one side of the golf ball) but there is a minimum order of 12 dozen and there may be a logo setup charge incurred if you don't already have a logo set up with Titleist. For more information, please pop into the Pro Shop as and when.
2015 Open Golf, Limited Edition Callaway Tour Bags
I have recently taken delivery of two beautiful, limited edition Callaway Golf Open Championship tour bags.
They have The Old Course embroidered on them as well as a limited edition plate on the bottom of the bag and come in a lovely blue and white colour and it is expected that these bags will be highly sought after.
Currently, these bags are retailing at £319.99 but are bound to be selling for much higher on eBay in the next few weeks so now may be an ideal opportunity to purchase one.
Clicgear push trolleys
I recently ordered some Clicgear push trolleys with the hope of selling a few, but such has been the sell-through that the few I ordered have now been sold but have now subsequently been replaced with two new trolleys, one in black with orange wheels and the other black with lime wheels. As many of you will know, these trolleys are first-class in quality and fold down really small too. So if you're in the market for a terrific push trolley, please let me know or come and take a look ASAP.
Ladies' Callaway Solaire set
More and more ladies are saying that they don't really see much of a difference in the distance between their irons so with that in mind, Callaway have released a set of clubs called Solaire. This set of clubs comes with a driver, 3-wood, 5-hybrid as well as a 7-iron, PW, SW and a lovely putter. Plus, it also comes with a superb bag and all for just £389.99. So if you'd like a top quality set of ladies' clubs at a fraction of the price, these may be just what you're looking for.
Superb Callaway Golf X Series N415 woods, hybrid and irons set
If you're looking for a top-of-the-range set of golf clubs at a very reasonable price, look no further than the superb, new, Callaway X Series N415 clubs. These cavity back clubs are designed to be easy to use, easy to hit and at just £569.99 , you'll receive a driver, 3-wood, #4 hybrid as well as irons from 5 - SW. So if you've another home somewhere and would like to leave another set there for when you visit or you'd just like to try a different set, well, you know where to come.
Cracking new Cleveland wedges
If you're looking for a superb new wedge, look no more because I have a fantastic new wedge from Cleveland Golf. Cleveland has long been known for the quality of its wedges and the new Rotex 2.0 wedge is a beauty. Finished in black, these wedges are available in 52°, 56° or 60° and what's more, I now have them etched with our beautiful club logo on the back of each one. I also have a 56° demo wedge for you to try which I've had in my bag for some time and I personally think this is the best wedge around. So look no more and come try out the newest Rotex 2.0 wedge - you'll love it!
When the wind picks up, you want to choose one club more than what you would normally choose. Go through your normal pre-shot routine and then swing easy. The windier it gets, the easier you should swing. You will quickly find that your golf ball is deviating less through the win and flying just as far.
Buying goods from the internet always seems like such a good idea, but let's take a look at what you gain and what you lose. You may save a pound or two - that's it - however, what you lose can be huge! For example, let's take a look at a case of an electric trolley breaking down.
Bought online - bought from me
Time wasted looking for the cheapest price online / one standard, competitive price!
Getting the wrong size, wrong colour or wrong item! / You select the product and get to touch and feel it - I'll deal with the rest!
The delivery driver doesn't turn up when you've been waiting all day / I'm a business owner always accepting deliveries!
Even when he does, the delivery window is between 8am and 6pm so you're sitting in all day / I'm open from 7:45am until 6pm - we're always here!
When the wheel falls off or it stops working, having to pack it all up and having no box / I'll either repair it in a few days or pack it up and send it back properly packaged
Contacting the company and going through a whole world of pain / I'll even loan you a trolley to use FOC whilst yours is being repaired!
Not knowing how the returns' system works / I do this all day, every day, so know the system inside out!
Not knowing what you can get back from the company and thus not having any "clout" / I place £K of orders with each company so they want to look after me!
You fret and worry about what the company will say or do / I know the best way to deal with each company and am always looking out for your best interests!
Most websites are legitimate, but can you really be sure..? / Guaranteed, bona fide, premium products every time!
Bought from American Golf and now you've got to take it back and deal with the traffic and parking / Drop it off to me when you're next playing - job done!
Now don't you wish you'd come bought it from your P.G.A. professional?!
