Let's hope the skies are empty for a few days!!!! Unfortunately we appeared to have more than our fair share of "localised heavy downpours" starting on Saturday. This resulted in the May Medal being abandoned and the re-scheduled date will be published in due course.
Even on Tuesday morning we still had scenes like this...............but thankfully the downpours had finished, and 24 hours later the drainage had done its job and it was business as usual!!
Tri-Golf Primary Schools Festival
As well as golfers returning to play on Wednesday, we also hosted the local Tri-Golf primary schools festival. Nine schools from York took part with 10 children in each team. Thankfully the weather was glorious and everyone had a great afternoon. Many congratulations to the Robert Wilkinson team who won, and also well done to Weldrake finishing second. Both teams now go on to the regional final next month. Good luck all!!
Kevin Davies, the York Council Sports Development Officer who organised the event was full of praise about our club, facilities, support we give to promote golf to the community and what a great asset our club is for York. Always nice to hear, and further confirmation about how bright our future is.
An afternoon entertaining nearly 100 youngsters ensured yours truly had a good nights' sleep on Weds night!! This was just as well for on Thursday it was the Annual York Rotary day which was very busy. A full day with teams of 4 playing from 8.30 till 4pm. A fantastic day which provided a constant supply of compliments about how great our course. Well done to everyone involved.
The highly anticipated TaylorMade SLDR mini driver was launched this week and yes........ we are one of the first accounts to take delivery. With a smaller head size, 3 wood length shaft and 14 & 16 degree lofts, this will be a great club for golfers who struggle to be consistent with a driver!

So you think you're not good enough to be custom-fit?
There's a perception among club golfers that having your clubs tailored to you is the province of the game's elite. The theory usually trotted out goes something along the lines of: "I'm too inconsistent for custom-fitting to benefit me."
The theory holds as much water as a perched links green. Your swing is a lot more consistent than you think, and technology can prove it. On launch monitors all handicap levels show remarkably similar levels of acceleration, clubhead speed, shaft loading and attack path and angle; whatever you think, your swing has a pattern. That perception of inconsistency is a fallacy, based on the fact a tiny change in the clubface's position at impact can create massive differences in ball flight.
But also, custom-fitting doesn't just refine good shots; it can also tame bad ones. That fact alone makes it relevant to all standards of player. So wherever you are in the game, come and talk to us about custom-fitting: it's a simple process… and it will have a profound impact on your game. Click here to send me your thoughts.
