FREE loft and lie checks
Having the right equipment for your game is essential and knowing how to use it properly is another important aspect to playing good golf.
This August we are offering FREE loft and lie check on your set of irons. This process takes no more than 5 minutes and will provide you with peace of mind that your equipment is set up correctly, we can also offer expert advice if your current loft and lie angles are incorrect for you.
We will also look at the gaps between each iron, this should be spread out evenly through the set usually 3 or 4 degrees apart, 1 degree equating to 4 yards. It is not uncommon that over time your irons may have altered from what they were when they we brand new. This sometimes explains why you have a huge yardage gap between certain clubs.
We recognise that not everyone has the same golf swing, so it is important that you have clubs that are custom fit to your specifications. Having custom-fit clubs will help to give you the confidence to play your best.

PING G - The Hottest Driver in store right now
Inspired by an approach called biomimicry, PING engineers analyzed the dragonfly's intricate wing pattern to design ultra-thin crown sections for extreme CG and maximized MOI. Dragonfly Technology, Vortec Technology, turbulators and a strong T9S face created our longest, most forgiving driver ever. Available in three models to fit your preferred trajectory.
G30 SF Tec
Engineered for players whose shots typically end up right of the intended target. More weight concentrated toward the heel and lighter swing weights improve shot bend to steer the ball back into the fairway. Crown turbulators generate greater clubhead speed and ball velocity for long, accurate drives. The new T9S face material optimizes face deflection for higher ball speeds and more distance. Launch conditions can be fine-tuned using five settings to add or subtract 1° of loft.
G LS Tec
Custom-engineered for the player who desires low, stable spin with forgiveness, the G LS Tec features a CG that is extremely low (slightly forward of the standard G driver). Inspired by biomimicry, PING engineers analysed the dragonfly's intricate wing pattern to design ultra-thin crown sections for extreme CG and maximized MOI in our longest, most forgiving driver.

Members are already starting to take advantage of the fantastic shoe offer in store.
All shoes have 20% OFF
Offer applies to stock items only - available for both men's and women's styles.
This coincides with an observation about people practicing with pumps and soft soles on the range.
This makes it extremely difficult to transfer your weight through the ball as your soft shoes will offer you no support like a golf shoe does. So potentially you will be creating needless swing faults.
Shirt Amnesty - Money for your old shirts!
We are going to continue to run the shirt amnesty offer here in the pro shop for you all! So make sure to pop in to take advantage, it won't be around much longer!
£10 OFF all makes of shirts in store, when you trade in your old golf shirt is the current apparel offer!
