Competition news 

December Medal review

It was a real shame to see the extreme flooding that hit Cumbria and parts of Lancashire over the weekend with over 400mm worth of rain falling in places in the space of just 48 hours, we've been very lucky here as we've avoided most of the deluges and the course is still in great condition - the December Medal was played on Saturday in dry weather but there was a strong wind blowing to challenge our golfers. Chris Newton has not played a great deal of golf this year but he showed that he can still score well when he does play by winning the Medal with a fantastic nett 63 playing off his 13 handicap. Chris' low ball flight obviously suited the windy conditions and he had a very good run of eleven pars in a row which was exceptional on such a tricky scoring day.

In second place was 8 handicapper Martin Major with a nett 67 including a birdie on the fifteenth hole, third place went to inform Dave Shering also on 67, Dave had a birdie on the fourth hole. Interestingly there was only one two scored (showing how tough the course was playing) by our Club Thrower of the year - Simon Stephenson!

Competition news

For those of you that played on Saturday you will have noticed that we now have a new place for you to post your envelopes with your entry fees in and also a new place for the competitions computer - both can now be found in the Conservatory, this will be the location from now on for you to post your envelopes and completed scorecards and also enter your scores for all competitions. The next competition is the Winter League round five on Saturday starting at 12.04pm. A big thank you also on behalf of all the members to George Abbott who runs George's Butchers in Weaverham for his continued support of our Turkey Trot competition coming up on 20th December, first place prize will as usual be a voucher for the best butchers in Cheshire!

Senior section 

Seniors Christmas news

Our seniors had some great weather this Tuesday morning for their nine hole game followed by their Christmas lunch party.

There were some great Christmas outfits on show and as you can see from these photographs a very good time was had by all!

The winning pair in the nine hole competition were Geoff Dodd & Paul Green - the festive jumpers must have helped their golf!

Our Christmas top sellers

With Christmas Day now only being two weeks away it really is time to start thinking about getting your Christmas shopping done, remember that we are open late every night and that you don't have to battle to find a parking space or wait in long queues if you visit us. 

We can also offer you a wide range of gift ideas and we will provide you with expert advice if you're unsure about what to buy or need help. In true 'Top of the Pops' fashion here's our top ten countdown of our bestselling gifts so far this Christmas:

1. Gift vouchers (from as little as £5) an oldie but a goody! Still our bestselling gift as our vouchers can be used against anything in the shop or even on green fees or the driving range, why what someone guess might want when you can just give them a voucher!

2. Distance measuring watches (from £129) in our opinion these devices are an essential piece of kit for any golfer, we've not met anyone yet who hasn't improved once they started using a watch, you suddenly know exact distances and exactly how far you hit each club in your bag, taking out all of the guess work! 

3. Glenmuir zip neck sweaters (£49.99) comes in a nice presentation box - a quality cashmere blend garment with a fashionable half-zip design suitable for golf or just to wear to the pub!

4. Driving range members card (from £28-£100) ideal present for any golfer so that they can work on their game over the winter, we all want to improve and practice is needed to do this, with the members cards you can save up to 44% on the usual driving range prices.

5. Motocaddy electric trolleys (from £299) take the strain out of your round, the number one selling electric trolley brand in the country and with a great £50 cashback offer if you purchase a lithium battery model before Christmas.

6. Titleist NXT Tour gift packs (£59.99) you get 2 dozen NXT Tour golf balls from the country's number one ball selling golf ball brand and a limited edition Titleist cap and divot tool all in a nice presentation box! 

7. Callaway XR drivers (£179) this has been our bestselling driver of the year and it's now available whilst stocks last at a new special offer price of just £179! 

8. ProQuip Aquastorm Pro waterproof suits (£99.99) the brand trusted by the European Ryder Cup team, a good waterproof suit is an essential for a golfer in this country, a great value suit made to last with a three year guarantee. 

9. Masters compact stand bags (£39.99) a small and lightweight stand bag with double carry strap at a good price - ideal for the winter 

10. Masters Junior package sets (from £79.99) ideal present for the kids if they're just getting into golf, available in age ranges from 3-14 years old, half set plus golf bag - all your child needs to get started becoming the next Rory McIlroy!

Srixon AD333 golf balls - 2015

Srixon AD333

Switching to a yellow ball in the winter is not a bad idea, it will certainly save you from losing so many balls for when you stray off line and when the light is fading. Srixon's AD333 is an excellent option; give it a go and see how you get on.
