Greetings from Mark Rogers
The York Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Whilst our buggy fleet has been increasing, I promise that the vehicle recently spotted going through the gates to the first tee was nothing to do with us!!!

Not sure which GPS the poor lady was using, but she was avidly following the instructions when told to turn left whilst on her way to Towthorpe. Fortunately all was sorted quickly with no damage.


The TaylorMade Demo/Custom fitting day on Saturday was as popular as always with their impressive ranges. In particular the R15 driver showing exactly how the technology in the head design can help ANY golfer gain more yardage AND accuracy, whilst the RSi irons surprised quite a few people when the 7 irons were going both significantly further then their own 6 irons!

York Against Cancer day 

On Thursday we hosted the annual York Against Cancer day which is always one of the highlights of the year despite it getting my heart rate going on the "beat the pro "challenge on the 7th hole! 

Demand for the event was as popular as ever with the organisers having to turn some entries down as it is just not possible to fit more than 33 teams in a shotgun start!

As for the beat the pro challenge, everyone took part attempting to win a dozen balls for being closer to the pin than either me or TJ, but at the same time they could win 3 balls for actually hitting the green.

TJ and I requested Mike to have a red flag cut close to the front to make it as tricky as possible, and whilst the plan worked for some, there were also some very good shots played by others.

Our efforts helped return a good profit and much to TJ's annoyance, I have bragging rights for giving less balls away!

The whole day was a great success with heaps of praise regarding the course, especially the greens. Once again Scott Anscomb was on top form for the auction. The top prize of a 4ball at Wentworth raised an incredible £1900 and at the time of me typing this, the total for the day has passed £12 000

What is also great news is that this now means the golf day itself has raised over £125 000 since it started (in the clubs 125th year!). 

Very well done to all at York Against Cancer and also a huge thank you to many members who helped during the day.
