Pros news 

It may be the last "major" of the year but there is no sense of approaching "the end of the season" here at York GC!

No doubt Dustin Johnson will feature on the leaderboard over the next few days, but if the wind blows it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Whilst on the subject of leaderboards, it has been fantastic to so many new techniques and new clubs performing so well yet again.

We sometimes get the odd tongue in cheek comment about us mentioning this in our newsletters, but we are so proud of how our pupils perform and how well members play after a club fitting, I am sure you understand why we do it!

If you want to book a lesson or fitting with one of our PGA professional staff, click here to get in touch, or come and have a chat with us over a coffee in the pro shop.

On Tuesday next week my son will be flying to the USA as he begins a golf scholarship in Missouri. This is a very exciting time for us all in the Rogers house, although we have stocks of Kleenex ready also!!

I luckily managed to organise a game at Wentworth this week so James could see and play the wonderful course. We had a great day there, and as always when you play a course you see on TV, it was great imagining the shots you have seen over the years and also seeing all the great memorabilia in the clubhouse.


Bunkers! Wow! As you can see from the video you can barely see the top of the flag on some and your less than 10 paces away from the hole!

We had a great 3 days away with Hayley and Chloe coming also and enjoying some time together in London. The Thriller show was brilliant that we saw on the Sunday night, although I have promised never to try and moonwalk again!!!!

Club news 

Our latest Open event was held yesterday - The Ladies Open. The day was a great success with endless compliments to start off:

  • "it's nice to see a Pro shop with plenty for Lady Golfers"
  • "I've never been anywhere with such a selection of Ladies Shoes" 
  • "What a fantastic Pro shop"

Then later on......

  • "those greens were superb"
  • "it's always a pleasure to play here, but it's the best I've ever seen the course" 
  • "I wished I lived nearer so this could be my home club"

This is always great to hear, and well done "Team York" in continuing the great momentum we have.

Shop news 

The recently launched PING GMax irons have got off to a flying start.

They offer fantastic forgiveness with great performance. On the fittings we have done so far, averages have increased by over 10 yards with some being quite considerably larger.

Junior golf 

This week was my first junior summer camp with the kids. It was over 3 days in which we played a few games on the practice ground to warm up, then went on the course each day for a team scramble over 5 holes. 

With day one as a practice round getting used to the format, we then had day 2 winners of Emma Foster and Will Holmes

Then day 3, the winners were Harry Baxter, Tom Moss and James Burrows

It was great to catch up with them during the summer when the normal coaching isn't on and great to see them all improving and playing better golf!

I would just like to also add an extra well done to Matthew Dolling for getting his CONGU handicap down to 24 last week! Very well done Matt!! Keep it coming down!
