Hartford Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
Welcome to our latest newsletter bringing you all the latest events, it's a shame to see that 14 times Majors champion Tiger Woods has put his much anticipated comeback on hold after pulling out of this week's Safeway Open in Turkey saying that his game 'is vulnerable and not where it needs to be'. As one golf observer put it if we all pulled out when our games didn't feel right 'there would never be a monthly medal....ever!'
Remember this famous Tiger Woods moment? Let's hope we see some a lot more like this in the future! Click here to watch.

Look out for Dave in the shop in the next few weeks and he looks forward to meeting all of you!
Winter League Review
The weather was warm and dry on Sunday afternoon but nevertheless we played the first round of our Winter League, each year the standard of play seems to get better and more and more strong pairs emerge.
This time it was the new partnership of Gary Cashmore and Keira Wharton that set the standard as they came in with a winning 25 points nine hole total, if you read last week's newsletter you will know that Gary has been in great form recently and Keira contributed well when she was needed to set up their winning score. Julie Daines and James Eaton always make a reliable pair and they scored 24 points including two birdies, Alan Nevin and Pauline Nevin also scored 24 points but had to settle for third place after a card play-off.
This Saturday we play the 3 Club Challenge, this is always a fun as well as challenging competition and hopefully the weather will stay kind to us! Remember also that our end of season presentation evening is coming up on Friday 11th November, it's normally a great night and a chance for us all to get together and celebrate another summer of golf with tickets costing just £20.
You will have noticed that there has been a lot of buzz in the golf world around the new Titleist 917 driver, we thought we would put together a short and snappy video review for you - have a watch here.
If you would like to book a 917 custom fitting to see what it can do for you then please contact me here.
Callaway have brought some great new clubs out recently including the Big Bertha Fusion woods and Callaway Steelhead XR irons, to coincide with this Callaway's fitting expert Tom Gradwell is coming to visit us again on Wednesday 2nd November from 2-6pm, he will have all his new demo clubs with him and he can give you a FREE full fitting on any of the current Callaway range.
We will also have special offers on the day and these events always fill up fast so contact us now to book your FREE fitting slot.
As the mornings and evenings are getting colder it's really important to layer up on the golf course, have a look at this video we put together showcasing the new Galvin Green collection we have in store and learn how having the right clothing is just as important as having the right golf clubs!
Graham Bower clearly loves the Seniors Specials, he won the Spring Special and now he has also won the Autumn Special competition. The first nine was played off the white tees and the second nine holes from the yellow tees, Graham scored a steady 17 points off the whites and then he added 21 points on the back nine.
Alan Nevin has returned from holidays in good form and he also scored 38 but lost out on a card play-off, whilst third place went to Peter Wildin on 36 points.
Our ladies entertained Sandbach Golf Club last Tuesday for a friendly match and they ran out as the winners by 2.5 to 1.5, it was a good day and it was nice to hear Sandbach ladies paying our course lots of compliments.
The ladies also played a nine hole Stableford on Thursday, Margaret Cherry was the winner with 19 points just ahead of Ann Broster who also scored 19 points, it was a good week for Ann as she reached the final of the ladies Autumn Pairs with partner Alison Worrall, they will face the winners of the match between Chris Paxton and Wendy D'Arcy against Elspeth Forbes and Sue Gunning.
