|Hi Everyone, Hope your all keeping well and enjoying your golf. Really positive that the Lockdown continues to open a little wider every couple of weeks or so. Lets hope this trend continues and the pandemic starts to end,
In today’s Newsletter we feature our Driving Range Studio and a Titleist Feature, A Driving Range Update, Ladies Get into Golf Event coming on 25th July, Junior Golf, Visiting Party and a Membership Update
⛳DRIVING RANGE COACHING & CUSTOM-FIT STUDIO
We Custom-Fit the complete Titleist and Ping Range and Fit with Foresight GC2 Laser.
Free Custom Fitting with all orders and we will better the internet on the price
⛳GC2 RANGE STUDIO PRACTICE SESSIONS
For the more series player who would like to practice with GC2 and work on their club distances and data our Range Studio is available (subject to availability)
1 Hour’s GC2 Practice is £10.00 which includes 2 range Tokens
Please see below a few Titleist Fitting Examples we have had recently and see how new equipment Custom-Fitted can make a massive difference to your game.
(We are also a Ping Custom-Fit Centre and will feature a few Ping fittings in our next newsletter)
⛳TITLEIST SPEED TS3 Vs TITLEIST 913 (DRIVER)
Really good fitting with Jack who was Custom-Fitted into a Titleist TS3 Driver. With the correct head, loft and shaft we gained an extra 30 yards over his 913 with a much tighter dispersion of shots
⛳TITLEIST SPEED TS3 Vs CLEVELAND LAUNCHER (FW METALS)
Our Club Champion Chris Farlow came over for a FW Metal Fitting where we compared his Cleveland Launcher against a Custom Fitted Titleist TS3 FW Metal
With the perfect combinations to suit Chris we gained an extra 25 yards with more control and consistency and giving Chris the optimum ball flight he was looking for in a FW metal to compliment his driver
⛳TITLEIST VOKEY SM8 WEDGE FITTING
We have got golfers fitted into the Perfect Set of Vokey SM8. With the Correct GC2 Gapping we got the PW, Gap, Sand and Lob spot on with 12 yards gaps between each wedge which is perfect. The Correct loft combined with the Correct Grind to suit the attack angle will really help every golfers wedge and short game improve
⛳TITLEIST T-SERIES IRONS
Some really good Titleist iron fittings since we came out of Lockdown. The T-Series iron range has performed really well and hits great numbers on GC2.
Its really good to try each iron and see which head and shaft combination comes out on top and works the best for you.
We have the full Titleist range in our Studio including the Brand New T400 and T100S irons which have both just been launched
(Free GC2 Gapping Session with all iron sets purchased)
⛳Trade and Upgrade is available (subject to make and condition) We will take you old clubs off you and move on eBay or Golfbidder club exchange. All the money we raise comes off your new equipment. Better doing this than have them stuck in the garage gathering dust!
⛳DRIVING RANGE BUGGY UPDATE
To all our Driving Range users thanks for your patience over the last few weeks whilst we were waiting for our new club buggy which are ball collector attaches to.
The old white range buggy’s engine had a massive explosion just before Lockdown. We had to wait until the new one arrived last week so over the last few weeks we’ve been collecting by hand which takes forever! Thanks for all your patience over the last few weeks.
Big thank you to all the members who helped us to collect balls over the last 8 weeks. It’s very much appreciated 🙏
⛳️The Driving Range is now all systems go and fully open to all golfers running on full capacity. Open to all golfers, new starters and the public. Golfers can use the indoor bays, grass practice tees and short game chipping and pitching bunker area.
Thanks to Beech and The Dog (Paul and Phil Patterson) who fitted the bull bar onto the new range buggy 👍

From this angle the golfer finds the correct positions down and through the ball and is able to swing the club much faster due to the correct positions.
