Custom fitting = better golf
There is nothing more pleasing for us than helping a golfer play better golf. A few weeks ago Dave Shering called in for an irons fitting session and we sorted him out with a new set of Titleist irons.
Regular readers of the newsletter will know that we always extol the benefits of club fitting, over 85% of competition winners at Hartford have been custom fitted, and we continually see examples of this working through golfers shooting better scores and handicaps dropping.
The latest proof has been illustrated by Dave's recent performances with his new irons, he has consistently hit better shots and has won two out of his last four competitions with scores of 43 points and then a nett 66 in last week's Midweek Medal to see his handicap drop to 15. If you are serious about improving your golf come and see us for a club fitting. If you play better golf it means more enjoyment in your game! Click here to book a fitting.
Kieran wins Easter Stableford
There was a Stableford played on Easter Monday and it was great to hear lots of members commenting on the good condition of the golf course, in particular the greens were rolling well and running pretty quickly, they were measured at a rate of 8 on the stimpmeter - which is pretty fast! The greens certainly suited young Kieran Underwood who scored a great 41 points total, including a storming finish of two birdies in his last six holes! Second place went to Tim Barnes who scored 39 points and had three birdies in his round, in third place was Alan Tayler with 38 points.
Kieran has now finished in the top six in his last three competitions and his handicap has reduced to 14. Well done Kieran!
Captain Chris Bird did well to score 2 two's but didn't enter the two's pool!
Also just to mention our young Cheshire junior golfer Tom Duncalf who is now playing off a handicap of 3 and had four birdies in his first ten holes. He will probably feel a little frustrated he didn't end up with a better score than 36 points.
The next competition is on Saturday at 12pm and it's our first major of the season - The Inaugural Trophy, you can enter now on the club notice board.
As mentioned before Dave Shering won the April Midweek Medal with a fine nett 66, in second place was new member Ian Tier, playing in his first competition, he scored two birdies and came in with a score of nett 69. Third place went to our very own catering manager Matthew Leach who has been getting into his golf this year and scored a very good nett 69 including a birdie on the first hole. His handicap has dropped a shot to 27 and he could be a player to look out for in this Saturday's Inaugural Trophy!

Photo of the week
You may have noticed some new faces on the golf course recently, there are 13 new young ducklings waddling around the golf course with their mother and they were even spotted strolling around on the driving range the other day by Keith Morrish. He took these couple of photographs of them on Sunday afternoon and by the looks of things they are growing up quickly!
