Professional winter series starts this weekend.

This Saturday will see the start of The Pro's Winter Series Competition. A series of competitions that will be held on non, club competition Saturdays between now and the opening sides match of 2015. These events will form an order of merit with your points from each event counting towards qualification to the grand final event held in March 2015, when the leading 12 scorers will play for the Winter Series Trophy and a 1st prize of £100

As with last year, the competitions will rotate 3 formats of play and they are as followed -

Week 1 - Individual Stableford
Week 2 - 4BBB Stableford
Week 3 - Texas Scramble (4 or 3 Persons) Stableford

All entry monies will be paid back in prize values each week and results are to be posted in my newsletter on a weekly basis. Who can play in these competitions? Members both Male, Female and Juniors. The more the merrier!

Please support the series and make it a huge success . No booking required, just enter in pro shop.

Flightscope Feedback

I have chosen to share with you two sessions delivered using Flightscope in the past week.

1) Clubfitting session to help provide our customer with a new iron set that will increase his distances. Without changing technique, fitting the correct shaft and head combination gave fantastic improvements. Click here to see the results

2) Golf lesson session using Flightscope to help the pupil understand why his ball does what it does. The example in picture 1 shows a typical pull/fade/slice type swing using understandable imagery. As you can see the golfers arc / swing line is strongly left and in order to promote a change to this flight will need to be re aligned, as seen in picture 2. Golfers often think that swing change is like amputation of a limb! It doesn't have to be and in this case the golfer made the change illustrated in 2 swings. #thepowerofflightscope

Titleist Pro V1 Practice

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. 

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. 

To enquire about the sessions please click here 

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.


Winter is coming! 

Keep your game in shape!!!!! Don't forget new Assistant Professional Peter Finch is running weekly ROLL UP tuition at the Academy. A great way to keep your swing in shape with no booking required just roll up and improve your golf.

Cash for clubs

We are often asked if we accept trade-in 's. The answer is YES! We actually want your old clubs!

We also have a facility to convert those old clubs that are sat in your locker or garage into money. Providing these clubs are a reputable brand and not too old we can move them on for you and convert them into funds that will be applied to your customer account in the pro shop for you to spend at you convenience. 

If this is of interest to you, pop in and see us during the week and we will give you a valuation.

That's all for now so we look forward to seeing you around the club at the weekend and happy golfing!!

If we do not have your desired product in store then you can simply use the 'click and collect' service on the Foremost Website! The website is designed to help customers seek their desired product and to have it delivered to their local Professional's Shop!

TaylorMade Rsi

Research suggests 76% of all golf shots are mis-hits, so we welcome technology that can help any loose ones less damaging and, therefore, lower our scores. In this video we speak to TaylorMade’s Executive Vice President, Sean Toulon, who explains how its Speed Pocket will help improve performance on shots that don’t come off the centre of the clubface… and we all hit a few of those!
