Summer is coming and this is worth reading

Lighter nights and bright sky this week have given us all an improved feel good factor as the season moves ever nearer. At this time of year I am always keen to read the blog that our course manager, Andy Merry produces. 

You can find lots of great information about what the guys are doing on the course, why they are doing it and the benefits of the work. Why not take a look by clicking here.

Coaching news

Mr Marshall reaps the rewards of seeing his PGA Professional and so can you! 

Simon Marshall joined the club in 2015 and has really enjoyed his first year at PGC. Recently Simon approached me about the possibility of looking at his Irons (Wilson Fatshaft) against some new options. I met Simon on the range a week later and introduced him to FlightScope and talked him through the process. Over two separate visits Simon and I made some strong improvements to his golf ball! 

Summary of Simon 7 iron improvements

- Clubhead Speed = up by 7.3mph 
- Ball Speed = up by 15.3mph 
- Smash Factor = up to 1.31 from 1.23 
- Distance increase = 32 yards on a 7 iron!! 


Simon opted for the new Cobra F6 TECFLO irons customised for his personal needs. Well done Simon, I enjoyed getting to know you a little better and I am really pleased with the progress you made over the two sessions.

Demo Day Calendar 

As in previous years, we are hosting a number of company demo events. These are ideal opportunity to spend some time with brand experts and assess equipment choices between your current and new ranges. All of our demo days this year will be appointment only. This is a request of all companies as they want the focus of attention to be on you and not a range full of testers.

Event 1 - Titleist - 30, March - 3-7pm 
Event 2 - Callaway - 6, April - 4-8pm 
Event 3 - Cobra - 21, June - 4-8pm

MOT your game

FREE grip & re-grip on your 7-iron
Playing with worn and shiny grips makes it difficult to produce a fluid and reliable swing - which leads to mishits and inconsistent ball-striking. Come and collect your FREE Golf Pride grip in store and we’ll re-grip your favourite iron. You’ll feel the difference immediately.
