It appears that many of you cannot get enough golf or practice in at the moment which is absolutely wonderful to see, and it's now 2 weeks since I said my last "Happy New Year" to someone.
In addition to the compliments about the greens, there has also been some nice compliments about the improving facilities on the range. The "green" is fast becoming more like a "green", the grass tee areas surface is improving too, and the par 3 course has now dried out enough to start receiving some TLC.
Since recently retiring, Alan Barrrass has kindly been helping out on the maintenance on the range and his help has been greatly appreciated.
This fantastic promotion is proving popular as always.
We are offering FREE fitting using our industry leading GC2 launch monitor, and anyone purchasing clubs over £299 will also receive a FREE lesson too.
This week we had Alan Hunter booked in to take advantage of our offer, and as you can see from the picture below, he wasted no time in finding the bullseye of his brand new TaylorMade M2 irons during his fitting.
He was so happy with the performance of the M2 irons that he immediately ordered a set for himself.
He is now looking forward to his FREE after sales lesson over the next few weeks.

Ladies Spring Meeting
Classed as one of the "Majors" for the Ladies section, the Spring meeting took place on Tuesday with a great turn out.
In superb conditions Charlotte Phillips

Chatting to Jez Hansbro
this week he told me he had the most fantastic experience of going to the Masters this year, but not only that he managed to be at the front row by the green as Danny Willet was holing his putt. Wow.
Here's a picture of Jez.
Rather than take the mick out of Jez's white legs and point him out as the chap standing to the left of the yellow shirt, I thought I would use an arrow to show where he isSun trap bench
The "hot seat"
has been in high demand during the Sun's guest appearances these past few days. This week's competition is to guess the combined age of the 3 gentlemen relaxing before their game of golf (I wouldn't dare do it for the ladies....).
