Foremost Pro of the Year!
At the Foremost annual awards ceremony, Andrew received an award for finishing in the top 4 of the 'Breakthrough Professional of the year' award which was a great achievement. Hopefully we can strive towards finishing at the top of one of the categories next year!
I am also delighted to announce that one of my pupils from Pleasington whom came via recommendation has won her first piece of silver wear. Janet has made tremendous improvements in all aspects of her game and I am delighted to see the hard work starting to pay off. I have no doubt that this will be the first win of many!
Driving Range Update!
Members and visitors are praising our new mats! Why not visit the range and find out for yourself just how good these are.
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.
Junior Development Programme
Over the last couple of months the Academy has been working hard to improve the juniors development and we are now pleased to say that a 4 Hole Junior Winter League will start and encourage juniors to play more golf.
A relationship has been made with the Golf Foundation to offer a structured coaching scheme in the form of the re designed junior passport programme which covers all the areas we would wish from a upcoming junior golfer. Each junior will receive a Passport, which is a record on each individual's progress.
Along with the relationship with the golf foundation, a £500 pot of funding has been accessed and will go into the JDP to allow us to offer taster sessions into the local community.
Getting the most out of your winter golf
With the continued efforts at PGC working towards ensuring your course is maintained to the best condition possible during the winter months and for the start of the 2015 playing season we offer 2 must have products for you.
Rocket Launcher Mats!
As you know, winter rules are now in place and you can get your Rocket Launcher from the professional's shop!
The ROCKET LAUNCHER® has passed the test & is welcomed as a long awaited replacement for the old, tired, grass mats. When struck it feels like you've played off the natural turf so it maximises enjoyment and minimises wear 'n' tear on you & your clubs. Features;
- The ROCKET LAUNCHER® is so slender the ball rests a scant millimetre or so above grass height so no need to shorten your grip as with mats
- No restraint required - strike at full strength without fear of typical golf mat backlash
- It is self-anchoring so no more additional bending over to insert anchoring tees. Just tap it down with your club head, there, it's anchored
Mizuno DNA fitting Centre
2015 will see your professional shop named as one of Mizuno's elite DNA Fitting Centres. This takes our fitting options at PGC to 7 brands, something no other pro shop in this area offers.
In golf, the name Mizuno is synonymous with great irons. Chances are we all know a player - and probably a good one - that played with 'Mizzys' growing up and hasn't switched iron brands since. Great feel combined with classic good looks is hard to beat.
Over the years, Mizuno expanded their lineup to include models for golfers of all skill levels while still staying true to its roots of function, clean looks and mostly 'grain flow' forgings. Through the years, Mizuno irons have been consistent Gold and Silver winners on Golf Digest's annual Hot List.
For more information on Mizuno product and DNA please speak to a member of staff.
Do you know a Junior interested in learning a new skill?
The Junior Golf Passport programme, which runs midweek after school hours and Saturday mornings from 9am until 12pm is open to all under 14's who are looking to start golf.
The cost of the sessions is £28 per month One to one sessions are also available to more advance golfers to help with their development.

JDP Winter League
You may have seen that a Blue stake has been applied to the fairways on last 4 holes. Peter continues his dedicated efforts by setting up a winter league for the advanced members of the Junior Development Programme.
It is a great way of ensuring continued development in play and competition format. This will run during the winter months and they tee off at 9.30am starting at the 15th. It is unlikely that the early starters on a Saturday will be reach the 15th by 9.30am but I ask members to mindful of these youngsters who will always be accompanied by parents.
