More From Callaway! Callaway XR Hot Now in store!
Callaway's XR drivers, fairway woods and hybrids use the company's new-and-improved Hyper Speed Face Cup technology to produce faster ball speeds - without skimping on forgiveness.
The new Hyper Speed Face Cup has an even thinner, lighter face than its predecessors. The lighter face gave Callaway engineers the ability to move the centre of gravity (CG) slightly lower in the club heads, as well as add a bit more perimeter weighting.
The results? Higher-launching, lower-spinning shots and club heads that are more consistent on mishits.
Callaway's XR driver uses the company's new Speed Step crown (gallery above) to improve aerodynamics, while the XR Pro has an aerodynamically-enhanced Forged Composite Crown to slightly boost club head speed.
Odyssey Putter Line now in stock
The new Odyssey Works putter series are now in stock, we have a wide selection of different models to suit different individual strokes ranging from traditional blade appearances to the mallet putter.
Take the most legendary insert of all-time that's the best feeling, best selling, with the most Tour wins and combine it with unbelievable new roll technology for the new Fusion RX Insert.
Fusion RX is where feel meets roll as we couple the White Hot insert with ultra thin stainless steel mesh and our patented Metal-X roll pattern. There are no compromises, and it has faster roll than the White Hot insert, so it reduces skidding and gets the ball into a pure roll faster.
With major winning Versa alignment the silver and black contrast lets your eyes key in on the linear designs to highlight the proper face angle from address to impact for alignment throughout your putting stroke. An Odyssey Works Putter is a promise made!
Wedge Feature & New stamping service
We have stocked a variety of wedges from different brands for 2015 including, Titleist, Cleveland, Callaway, Mizuno and Cobra.
Each brand offers a choice of different lofts, grinds and bounce options to suit your game!
Why not personalise your wedges this year! Come to the pro shop to find out more.
The New Mizuno MP T5 Wedges
The MP-T5 wedges deliver the touch and precision of Mizuno's renowned Grain Flow Forging construction where it benefits most - around the greens.
A refined teardrop profile - based on the tour grind of short game magician Luke Donald, allows mastery of the ball from a variety of set ups and positions. There are now 25 combinations of loft and bounce - with 2 sole types to suit varying techniques and turf conditions.
Titleist Vokey SM5
Vokey Design Spin Milled 5 (SM5) wedges deliver more spin and more types of shots, providing golfers with more ways to hit it close and shoot lower scores. Precisely designed and manufactured using proprietary Spin Milled technology, Vokey SM5 wedges provide a distinct performance advantage through new, deeper TX3 grooves, tour-driven shapes and the industry's most extensive range of bounce and grind options.
Vokey Spin Milled 5 (SM5) wedges are the best performing wedges in the game, and since 2004, Vokey Design wedges have been the #1 wedge on the PGA Tour and the most played wedge at every level of competitive golf.
Vokey SM5 wedges feature a more compact and balanced profile with three new finish options - Tour Chrome, Gold Nickel and Raw Black. Each wedge has new, clean graphics with an expanded selection of personalisation and custom options also available.
Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Wedges
- 5V Groove Pattern - 39% larger grooves create 25% more spin on shots hit out of the rough. Laser Milled Micro Grooves
- Laser Milled Micro Grooves increase surface roughness for more spin and control.
- Tour Tested Shape Inspired by our most popular wedge on Tour, the Mack Daddy 2 Wedge is available with custom sole grinds for enhanced performance.
- Finish Options The Mack Daddy 2 Wedge is available in two finish options, Chrome and Slate. The Chrome Finish produces a smoky, muted look that helps reduce glare. The Slate Finish is designed to oxidize over time for a distinctive look.
Cleveland RTX Wedges
The showpiece of Cleveland's RTX wedges is Rotex Face technology. The rougher, milled face is designed to impart more spin on wedge shots than a traditional, smoother club face could.
The 588 RTX wedge's grooves are also 16 percent larger than those on its 588 predecessor. Of course, generally speaking, the wider the grooves, the more spin that can be generated. The larger grooves in this year's model are intended to maximize spin on shots from the rough or sand and in wet conditions.
Additionally, the surface roughness and milling create the most durable grooves that Cleveland has ever offered, extending the longevity of the club.
With the 588 RTX, Cleveland has retained a classic look, which has defined most of its offerings in recent years. As mentioned, last year's 588 wedge featured more stamping than the present model, which has a less busy look, but perhaps still too much stamping for some purists.
At address, the Rotex face milling and grooves are apparent. One can assume that the grooves continue to look sharp for a long time.

The principles of the 3D Doppler Tracking Golf Radar
With technology improving the world of sports in leaps and bounds, more accurate sports measurement systems have resulted in improvements not only for players, but for spectators too.
3D Ball Tracking
The two main technological aspects of the FlightScope 3D motion tracking device are its radar technology (very similar to that which is used in the military), and its advanced industrial electronics.
The patented phased array tracking technology that is used in all FlightScope radar units is the most advanced in the industry today.
FlightScope's 3D motion tracking devices are not just about ball measurement; they can also help with your golf swing analysis by measuring 24 variables related to your Ball, Club or Swing, such as:
- Ball Speed
- Vertical Launch Angle
- Horizontal Launch Angle
- Vertical Decent Angle
- Smash Factor
- Spin Rate
- Spin Axis
- Carry Distance
- Total Distance
- Lateral Landing
- Apex Height
- Flight Time
- Shot Dispersion
- Club Speed
- Club Speed Profile
- Club Acceleration Profile
- Face Angle
- Face to Path
- Dynamic Loft
- Angle of Attack ~
- Club Path
- Vertical Swing Plane
- Horizontal Swing Plane
The ball's entire trajectory after it has been launched is also tracked, which means you have exceptionally comprehensive ball measurement information instantly available, helping you to improve your golf swing.

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.
