England Golf come to town next week

We have a very exciting week ahead as PGC host England Golf for the u14 Reed Trophy and have had many of the youngsters visiting ahead of the event for practice rounds. 

Competitors are coming from all over Europe to play in this event and I am sure we will see an abundance of talent on show. Please feel free to come and view the golf being played over the 4 days. 

The Reed Trophy Competition Summary 

The Championship is open to boys under the age of 14 on 1st January of the year in which the Championship is to be played and who are in possession of a playing handicap not exceeding 7.4. 

The Championship is played by 54 holes of stroke play. One round of 18 holes shall be played on each of the first two days. After 36 holes the leading 70 players and those tying for 70th place shall play a further 18 holes on the third day. The winner shall be the competitor who returns the lowest score over 54 holes. 

In the event of a tie, there will be a sudden death play off. Click here for details of the event and competitiors


Please protect your practice area by following the instructions below.


A way of saving turf at the driving range is to make sure that you place the ball at the back edge of your previous divot, meaning as little grass as possible is used.


Cleveland RTX - The highest spinning wedge in golf and currently offering a buy one get one half price

Cleveland 588 Rotex 2.0 Blade Wedge Review 

Cleveland also brings you the Rotex 2.0 face in a blade, but it is not a completely new head shape. It is based on the excellent Cleveland CG15 wedge which stood out for the sole grinds on the heel and toe.


Thankfully these continue in the 588 Rotex 2.0 version and the 1 and 2 dot grinds are some of the best in the market for allowing you the flexibility to raise the heel or toe to play touch shots.

If you are looking for versatility around the greens and performance from sand, then the Cleveland 588 Rotex 2.0 gives you everything you would need and more and it is not hard to see why this is one of the best selling wedges in the market.

The levels of bounce per dot vary in the blade version because of the thinner sole. For instance on the 2 dot 56° wedge, the CB has 16 degree of bounce, whereas the blade version has 12 degree so that may influence your choice of head shape and loft.


Catch it correctly and the feel from the 9620 carbon steel head and the spin from the Rotex 2.0 face is excellent and right up there as one of the best. As you would expect, the head is a little more compact than the CB version, but is still big enough to give you some margin for error. 

The lofts start at 46 degree with this version, but unless you are low single figures I would be tempted to have a 46 degree to 50 degree in the CB and then go to the 588 RTX 2.0 blade for the higher lofts.

Like previous Cleveland wedges, the blade version feels towards the lighter end of the scale even though the swing weight is the same or less than the main competitors. The bounce tends to play about average for the stated lofts, so a 1 or a 2 dot sole will be ideal for most players.


So whichever version of the 588 RTX 2.0 wedges you go for, you can rest assured that you will have one of the best performers in the market with a tried and tested design and a face that gives good levels of spin for that all important control on the greens.
