Driving Range Update!
We have now fitted our new Truestrike Mats, which has been a major improvement on the facility! The feedback we have received so far has been excellent, no doubt there will be more people coming to use our driving range!
The core fundamental design of TrueStrike is fiberbuilt to last and react like grass when hit, allowing golfers to have a realistic practice so they play like fairways. The TrueStrike golf mats have a "ruckable" top surface and a gel-filled divot simulating subsurface which accurately recreates the effects of playing off a natural fairway by allowing the club head to play through the playing surface as it would on turf.

The Junior development programme is going extremely well and we have had a large uptake. We are gathering more and more juniors as the programme progresses and they are enjoying the sessions.
The Juniors are in the process of completing their 'golf passport' which consists of the learning fundamental movement skills that are needed within golf, then progressing onto all aspects of the game. The juniors will also learn about etiquette and rules of golf, including the handicap system and different formats the game can be played in, such as stableford and medal competition.

It is noticeable that lots of golfers who struggle with their wedge play have large loft gaps between their wedges. The key to playing good golf is to make it as simple as possible! Having equal loft gaps between your wedges helps you to select the right club for different distances.
The majority of club golfer's carry just a pitching wedge and a sand wedge in their bag! The modern day pitching wedge has roughly 46 degrees of loft which is 10 degrees stronger than most sand wedges! Introducing either a 50 or 52 degree wedge would allow the golfer to play shots in between their pitching wedge and sand wedge yardage much easier resulting in lower scores!
Your professional's shop stocks Titleist, Cobra and Cleveland wedges and we have a large variety of loft and bounce combinations to help you improve your wedge play!
