Pros news 

Can you believe it's less than 2 weeks until the Masters? With the form Dustin Johnson is in it looks like everyone is playing for second place!

This week has included a trip to Catalunya (ranked no.1 course in Spain) to play in the TaylorMade Amassador Cup.


I am immensely proud to be one of 50 Ambassadors across Europe and the list includes Professionals from Turnberry, Gleneagles, Wentworth, Doonbeg, Quinta Da Lago to name a few!

This event is played annually with the Ambassadors in playing in two teams - The Managing Directors team and the UK Director of Sales team.

The hospitality was amazing and it felt like the Ryder Cup. We even had Ivor Robson announcing all the games on the first tee!


After last year's defeat playing in the MD's team we were keen to win this year. Our match consisted of me playing with James Taylor from Germany against Mike Yarnold also from Germany who partnered the resident Professional Enrique Lopez.

We had a fantastic game and the course was simply superb with greens that were like putting on a coffee table. 

There was a real buzz around the course with all the scoring being sent live to everyone in their buggies as well as the Captains and TaylorMade staff who were dashing between games.

After being 2 down at the turn we turned the game around to be 1 up with 2 to play but then all square going up the last, a very long uphill par 4. Faced with a 15' downhill left to right put to win the match I managed to stroke it home for a valuable win.

The match itself was a close affair but unfortunately 2 late games were won on the last by the opposition which resulted in our team losing by 1 point.


It was a truly great experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend a visit to the Catalunya course and hotel!

Shop news 

With the clocks changing the season is well and truly underway and the shop is bursting with new stock and offers to get you going.

Our popular bag trade-in offer will finish this weekend so make sure you take a look at your bag and clubs to see if you would to take advantage of this great offer. I say clubs because a lot of members think their bags are 'ok' because they look fine but the internal dividers can be quite worn without realising it. Take a look at the shafts on your clubs to see if they are damaged in any way - in particular the graphite shafted woods. Here are a couple of examples we had this week.


Here are some other great offers we have:

- FootJoy Contour casual shoes £79.99  
- Titleist PROV1 4 for 3 offer 
- FootJoy Shoe Size Challenge 


Throughout the month of April I challenge you to come in and get your foot professionally measured by our team using our fitting brannock. Seven out of ten of you are wearing the wrong sized shoes and this can affect your performance on the golf course.

If your shoes are already the correct size I will give you a FREE pair of FootJoy ProDry Crew socks.

This year we are pleased to announce we have full demo sets of irons available to try. These include:

- TaylorMade M2 irons 

- PING G Le ladies irons 

- TaylorMade ladies Kalea irons

Fitting day 

We still have a couple of spaces on our Titleist fitting day tomorrow running from 12-4pm. This is a great opportunity to try the full range of Titleist Clubs including the Vokey wedges.

If you wish to attend please contact me as soon as possible.

Club news 

Congratulations to both David and Val on their Captains' Drive-in event. Two good 'whacks' in front of a great audience. All the very best wishes for your year ahead.


Range news

Many many thanks to Neil and Carolyn Francis , Martin Ashley and Pat Clark for very kindly helping unplug balls on the range today. This help is greatly appreciated as over 2000 balls were plugged on the range. 

The range is far from dry and please bear in mind there will be further closures to retrieve future plugged balls as now the grass is growing it is imperative we retrieve them as quick as possible. 


We would also like to say a huge thank you to Graham Hartwell and Alan Jamieson who have kindly spent a good deal of time applying wood stain to the shelter.
