Pros news 

Don't panic, no-one is leaving, and our latest face for the Pro shop team is......

This only means that Christmas is fast approaching so get your letter posted to the North Pole ASAP. It appears that some of our offers have got some of you in the festive mood already. The offer of FREE personalising on Titleist balls is once again proving popular, so much so that I think sales of marker pens may be affected next year as many of you will be using personalised balls!!

If you would like to order your personalised balls, come and see us in the pro shop, or click here to place your order.

More on what's going on in the shop later.

Club events 

Golf in the dark 

On Friday we had our first "Golf in the Dark" event and what fantastic fun it was! Needless to say it was a huge success and enjoyed by all 70 that played in it (when next year's event gets advertised be quick to sign up!).

Click here to view a quick video of the challenges faced!

Thankfully the weather was super and it was great seeing the 5 holes set out with the lights down the fairways, around greens, luminous flag sticks etc. As you can see from the video it was great watching the balls set off. 

We had Phil Little join the Pro Shop team and there was great excitement when he teed off on the 7th as his tee shot homed in on the flag before landing 1" short of the hole!

I have to say it was a wicked flag position on the 7th (back left) and it became clear why it was put there when our Head Greenkeeper won the nearest the pin. Well done Mike! 

With the best 2 scores counting we figured as we were playing that 20 points would win the event and unfortunately we were correct - we had 19 points!

Congratulations to the 3 teams scoring 20 points with the winning team on count back being Mike Wells, Gerald Woodcock, Matt Walton & Stephen Andrew.


Course news 

On Wednesday our Greenstaff team and helpers laid the final pieces of turf regarding the latest Course Development work. There has been a huge amount of work done on this phase with 2500 square metres of turf laid. It has been a fantastic "team effort" with some very much needed help provided by various members along with Andy and TJ. 

Very well done all of you and thank you.


As for the work itself it looks superb! The feedback from members and visitors alike has been hugely positive. Our latest group of visitors who played on Wednesday were made up of members from local clubs including Fulford and Malton and praise was again paid to the work undertaken.

Shop news 

As mentioned earlier the Titleist FREE personalisation offer is proving popular with some funny wording being ordered on some also!

The Motocaddy £50 cashback offer has also started on all their Lithium trollies so it's a great time to consider an upgrade of your electric trolley OR taking the plunge and "going electric". 

The stigma of "I'm not old enough for one of them" has just about gone from golfers. I often say in these newsletters that people often say after a lesson; "I wish I had done this ages ago" and guess what , they often say after getting their first electric trolley "I wish I got this ages ago".

With new clubs having been launched recently we have been kept busy with fittings and it's interesting hearing some customers saying they are looking at clubs for Christmas. What a good idea! 

Click here if you would like to arrange a FREE fitting to see what new, fitted clubs could do for you!

Here a list of items proving popular in the shop these past few days:

  • Srixon AD333 balls £14.99 (last few dozen remaining)
  • Dwyers Winter Trousers (Lined trousers for ultimate comfort for the weeks ahead)
  • TomTom GPS watches (already hugely popular and now at new lower price £149!)
  • Lined Sweaters (huge selection from adidas, Ashworth, ProQuip)
  • Ashworth Shirts - Buy one get one FREE (I'm sure you will have shirts need replacing in your wardrobe)
  • Winter Shoes - Great selection for both Men and Ladies


Competition news

After the lovely evening on Friday the weather had to go and spoil itself the next day. Heavy rain early on meant the 8am shotgun Turkey comp had to be cancelled. Thankfully the course was playable (just) for the 12 o'clock shotgun and despite another downpour 5 minutes after starting, the rest of the afternoon was enjoyable for those playing.

Many congratulations to Richard West who scored a mightily impressive 43 points to win by an incredible 6 points. Not sure if that's the biggest winning margin of the year? Congratulations also to Emma Audsley who notched up another win for her season by winning the Ladies Event.

Congratulations to Judy Baines & Rosemary O'Conner on winning the Daily Mail KO after beating Carol Botterill & Heather Gott in the final.

I hope you like the rest of the newsletter and the articles I have for you below. Enjoy the read.
