The New Titleist 915 Driver and Fairways!
Steve Crake was our first Titleist 915 customer. He put it straight into play and BOOM!
Steve by his own admission is a true golf club junky and has tested nearly every driver in my shop but has now found his new best friend. One that is long and straight! Having been so impressed with the driver, Steve has added a 16* 3wood and 20.5* HD Hybrid.
For all if you Titleist junkys out there, this 915 is by far the best product they have ever produced. In the past the Titleist driver has really only suited the lower handicap golfer but now with a far more forgiving club head it will suit a greater range of players.
New Callaway Big Bertha Irons and Hybrids!
The new Big Bertha range is now in store and we have all the demo's for you to try!
Various lie and shaft options! Click here to find more information on this amazing new product!
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.

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.
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.

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
Winter is coming!

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!!
