We played our first board competition of the year on Saturday and there was a good turnout of competitors, breezy conditions and the bogey format made scoring difficult and the winning score came from Seniors Captain Bob Bowen who grounded out a score of 4 up. Bob's score was established on the front nine as he was 4 up at the turn and then on the back nine he held on to his score as the wind picked up, another senior golfer was in second place as Alan Tayler scored 3 up. Alan had the opposite to Bob's round as he played the front nine in level but had a storming back nine including two birdies on holes 11 and 15. Paul Lang (dare we say it - another senior golfer!) took third place also on 3 up using his trusty wooden headed driver!
Alan Tayler also capped a good day by scoring the only two which will be very lucrative for his shop account!
This weekend we have two competitions - the Sunningdale Pairs Foursomes on the Saturday and then a Stableford on Monday as we enjoy another Bank Holiday, both start at 12:04pm.
The draws are up on the notice board for the Summer Singles and Pairs Knockouts - if you've entered make sure you have a look at who you're playing and check when the match needs to be played by as there won't be any extensions.
You may have noticed in the last few weeks a new face around the shop, we're very proud to welcome PGA professional Jonny Pearce to our coaching and shop team. Jonny is well known in the area and he was an Assistant at Delamere Forest before becoming Head Professional at Chapel en le Frith Golf Club and he brings with him a wealth of retail and coaching experience - it now means that we now have 4 PGA Professionals working as part of our team with collectively over 70 years' experience in the golf industry.
Jonny is especially enthusiastic about junior golf and he will be helping out with our Academies and organising lots of junior lessons and competitions as well as going into schools to help promote the game. You will also see Jonny in the shop and he is looking forward to meeting all of you in the next few weeks, he is also keen to play nine holes with as many members as possible so make sure you ask him for a game!
Here is the group of girls who had a great time in the Girls Golf Rocks session held at the weekend.
The ladies held an 18 hole Stableford last Thursday and the winner was in form Elspeth Forbes who won for the second time in three competitions, Elspeth scored 39 points and her handicap has dropped to 22.
In second place was Lady Captain Sandra Peake and in third place was Chris Lever on 34 points.
This Thursday the ladies play a nine hole Stableford although it will be a bit quieter than usual as 10 of them are away on a golf trip to Portugal - we're sure they'll have a great time in the sun!
Membership news Now that the weather is improving and we've got much lighter evenings we're sure that you will all start wanting to play more golf - if you are going to play lots of golf this summer then it makes perfect sense to become a member at Hartford.
We pride ourselves on being Cheshire's friendliest Club and we don't charge a membership joining fee nor do we have lots of rules and out of date dress codes that might put you off! For us golf is a game that should be affordable and accessible to everyone for that reason we have a number of great and inexpensive membership deals, for example did you know that we offer a trial membership for just £100? For this small amount you get 2 months of unlimited golf and it's an ideal opportunity to test the waters to see if you would like to become a full 12 month member.
Not only is there a trial membership we also offer a flexible membership for £200 in which you get 200 points to use against games of golf both here at Hartford and at our sister course Pryors Hayes, 9 holes starts from just 8 points so you could get up to 25 rounds for your £200, when the points are all used you can top up by £50 a time.
Full 7 day membership is available at just £58 a month and if there is a group of you that are thinking of joining we can offer you a 4 for 3 deal, so if 4 of you join on a full membership you pay for 3 and can save up to £785!!
There can't be another Golf Club that offers so many membership offers - we really do have an offer to suit every lifestyle and budget, to enquire about any of these deals please contact us here.

|What's the loft of your PW?|
One of the biggest advancements in recent years is the increase in the number of options available to golfers when it comes to custom fitting, as well as adjustability. Take PING, with the fantastic G line we have three different models for you to choose from.
|Video of the week|
