Christmas is coming.... We had to mention it this week - it's now less than 6 weeks until Christmas!
The countdown has begun in the shop and we've got our Christmas tree up with plenty of gift ideas in stock. We've already had a number of Christmas shoppers calling in and remember that you can avoid the queues and struggling to find a parking space when you visit us and we are also open late until 9pm every single day of the week.
Each week we'll bring you a simple Christmas gift idea if you're still looking for inspiration, this week we're featuring the very popular ProQuip waterproof suits we have in stock - over the years ProQuip have supplied waterproof clothing to an amazing total of 19 European and American Ryder Cup teams and their trademark is making good value for money wet weather clothing made to outperform the elements.
The Ultralite jacket is ProQuip's longest running and bestselling waterproof jacket that is light enough to swing in unrestricted but will keep you dry and warm on the golf course plus it has a modern fashionable look with a nice fit, it comes with a 3 year waterproof guarantee and is available in various colours and sizes.
The jackets are £69.99, matching black waterproof trousers are £44.99 or if you buy both you get the full suit for a bargain price of just £109!
Winter League Review
We played the third round of the Winter League and again the weather was kind to our competitors, we had a record 26 pairs tee it up so it was always going to take a good score to finish on top. The winners on this occasion were John Gunning and Neil Dunning with a total of 25 points, the highlight of their round was a nice birdie two on the fifth hole.
Chris Bird and Martin Major dovetailed well to score 24 points in second place, their gross better ball score was one under par, in third place were Antony Green and Dave Johnson but the funny thing is that Antony was away on holiday so Dave had to play on his own and he still scored 23 points, clearly those new custom fitted irons Dave got from us have really helped his game!

This Saturday we play the November Bogey competition starting at 11am.
There's been a lot of buzz around the new Titleist 917 drivers and fairway woods and they're great bits of kit but an unsung hero for us in the Titleist range is their fantastic 816H hybrids, Titleist clubs sometimes have the mistaken reputation of being hard to hit but actually with the 816 hybrids nothing could be further from the truth which is why they're our bestselling hybrid in the shop at the moment!
Rather than bore you with lots of technology talk have a look at this short video of our professional Adrian Hill reviewing and hitting the 816 hybrid and his own 4 iron and see how he picked up an extra 20 yards in carry using the high launching easy to hit Titleist hybrid. Here's the link to the video.
We have plenty of demo clubs in the 816 hybrids so if you want to try one for yourself or book a fitting we can accommodate you.
It's that time of year again when we bring you a fantastic Christmas deal, you can order a dozen Titleist or Srixon balls (not including Srixon Distance) and have FREE personalisation such as name or message put on the balls so they are a totally unique gift that you can give to a loved one or friend.
The golf balls start from £19.99 a dozen and make sure that you order them by 12th December to guarantee delivery before Christmas!
Presentation Night Highlights
A big thank you to all the members and guests that came to our latest presentation night which was as usual a good affair, here are some of the main winners receiving their trophies from Captains Paul and Audrey.
The ladies had a nine hole Stableford and quiz last Thursday, the winner of the Stableford was Collette Walling with 15 points, the weather was awful with plenty of heavy bands of rain around so all credit to the ladies for even playing. Well done also to Ena Rudman who didn't just get one two but she actually scored two two's in just nine holes - a great effort!
Lady Captain Audrey has asked us to pass on a big thank you to all of the ladies that dried off to participate in the quiz afterwards and helped raise some money for her chosen Alzheimers Society.

"Custom fit golf clubs make a massive difference in terms of really improving distance and ball flight. I think amateurs see more difference than the pros."
We hope you have a great week.
