Portugal Trip 2015
Over the weekend, myself and a group of 7 members headed to Portugal for some golf in the sun!
We stayed at Dona Filipa Resort at Vale De Lobo and played 3 rounds over the fantastic Penieros Altos and San Lorenzo golf courses.
We were blessed with superb weather for all three days with temperatures around 20 degrees!
An excellent trip was had by all and the performance of the week went to Tony Goddard and Mick Lofthouse who were on the winning team on each of the 3 days.
Well Done Guys!
Plans are in place to repeat the trip in 2016 so if you would like to get involved, please come and have a chat with me.

New Callaway Big Bertha Alpha Driver! - Features and Details
Maximum Distance From Extreme Low Spin - This is the lowest spinning driver we've ever made. If you have the ball speed and launch conditions to match, extreme distance will be there.
Lighter Weight In The Face Leads To Low CG Remember this name - R.MOTO. It's the new face technology that provides structure and saves weight leading to higher ball speeds all across the face. And we use that weight to move the CG low and more forward to give you even more speed.
Adjustable Launch Conditions - We modified the crown of the driver so we could fit a taller Gravity Core. This gives you more spin separation between low and high settings. All without changing loft or face angle.
Compact Head Shape - The players who use this kind of driver like a deeper face, and that's what we're giving them. The shape of the crown and face angle at address all suit better players' eyes.
OptiFit Adjustability - 8 way adjustability for loft (-1, S, +1, +2) and lie angle (Draw or Neutral), along with Draw and Neutral CG settings.

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.
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
