Greetings from Andrew Greenbank
Preston Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional


Important information - Please use 01772 700022 when calling the professional shop and not 01772 700011. This is due to a problem we have being unable to retrieve voicemail messages left on 700011.

This is the first newsletter of 2015, and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your support throughout during 2014.

We have had another very busy year here at Preston Golf Club, and it looks like 2015 will be even busier.

I will once again endeavour to continue to provide the highest levels of service, the best stocked pro shop, the most accurate and up to date coaching and first class custom fitting service. I am very proud to have won an award from Foremost in 2014 and will now strive to land the big one, which is Foremost pro of the year.

In my 18th year as Professional at Preston Golf Club, I am even more enthusiastic about helping you and your golf and to inspire many beginners to take up the sport we all enjoy. 

Here's to a fantastic 2015!

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.


Crested PGC Garments

Since my last newsletter about our embroidery service many of you have been in the shop selecting various brands of clothing. It would appear that being able to select any clothing garment and have the PGC logo applied is ticking the boxes in the run up to Christmas.

  

  

Members can now get any item of clothing in store embroidered for just £5, this takes roughly 7 working days to send off and receive with the PGC Crest embroidered to your preferred position on the clothing.

Preston Golf Club Function Suite

During this period of partying and celebration I thought it would be fitting to discuss with you the fantastic function suite available for hire at Preston Golf Club.

The room can be transformed to look spectacular for any celebration from weddings, birthday celebrations, christenings, gala dinners, charity balls, corporate events, awards ceremonies, school proms and graduation balls to name a few and is available for you to hire at preferential members rates so 'break a leg' not the bank!

  

This suite has its own private entrance and your guests will love the private bar within the room meaning they won't miss a minute of the 'do'.

Our catering and bar team can provide you with a whole range of delights to suit your needs and are ready to help ensure your celebration is a huge success.

  

  

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. 

To enquire about the sessions please click here 

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

Sunderland Dolphin waterproofs

Owning a decent set of waterproofs will save you shots. Okay, maybe not in the same way as a custom fit driver, but when the heavens open your round can deteriorate quickly if you don't own golf specific waterproofs. It's not just about staying dry either, but having that freedom of movement.
