Greetings from Tim and Paul at Hartford Golf Club
Hartford Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

A very warm welcome to our first newsletter of the year, I trust that you had a good festive period and hopefully you managed to get a few games of golf in despite the Boxing day snow - this was the scene the morning after!

I know that many of you will have the goal this year of improving your golf game and we want to help you achieve this whether it's through upgrading your equipment with a custom fitting session or working on your game with the help of our professionals Adam and Adrian - we can help. This year we also plan to bring you even more golfing news, equipment reviews, tips and advice - our goal here is to make 2015 your best golfing year yet!

Membership offer – 3 months free

We have a great membership offer on at the moment – join now as a full member and get 15 months for the price of 12, with 7 day membership costing £640 this means that you can play as much golf as you like any day of the week for around £10 a week all the way until the end of march 2016.

There is also the option to take up dual membership with our sister club Pryors Hayes near Tarvin if you fancy playing a couple of different courses the fee is just £775

Look out next week for news of an exciting new points based membership we are launching this year where you can buy points to be used against rounds of golf – this will offer great value for money whilst offering maximum flexibility with your membership.

Even at this early stage in the year we have had some great new equipment arrivals in the shop - we have the new 2015 TaylorMade metal woods in the R15 and Aero Burner ranges. As any serious golfer will know TaylorMade’s R series of drivers have been some of the best drivers in golf over the last few years and the R15 is the latest release to coincide with the fifteenth year of the famous R series. The R15 again follows the technological theory of having the centre of gravity low and forward for high launch and low spin meaning that you still need to ‘loft up’. However where they have really improved the R15 is with adding not one but two movable weight ports – this means that you can move 25 grams of weight to optimise your distance. If the weight ports are central they maximise distance, if they are on the heel they promote draw and if the weights are moved to toe and heel they maximise stability and MOI meaning straighter drives.

Rather than bore you with too much technology talk I would like a reader to volunteer for a FREE fitting with the new R15 driver – they can then offer an independent review of how well the driver performs and I’m sure that when it’s set up correctly it will offer great distance and forgiveness.

Click here to book your FREE fitting now.

Members profile

This week we bring you a profile of our 2005 Captain, Martin Major:

What is your current handicap and when did you start playing golf? - 'It's 8 at the moment and I started playing at age 14 in Middlesbrough, I joined Hartford in 2002'

Have you had any holes in one? - 'I've been lucky enough to have had two, both as a junior when I was playing at Teeside Golf Club'

What's you favourite/least favourite hole at Hartford? - 'My favourite is the 14th off the white tees as it's just a great par 3 - one of the best I have played anywhere. My least favourite is the 2nd hole as it's a really hard green to hit and if you miss it you're always faced with a difficult chip - which isn't the strong point of my game!'

Your favourite course you have played? -'I've played a few great courses but my favourite is Kingsbarns, I've played there three times and every time it's blown me away with the stunning views of the North Sea, it's also a difficult course but still playable for the average golfer.'

What course in the world would you like to play? - 'Pebble Beach in California - I love links courses and this looks like the best of them all it would be a dream come true to play it - maybe my wife Andrea will treat me to a trip there one day!'

Favourite golfer? - 'For me it's definitely Sir Nick Faldo as he was at the top of the professional game when I was getting into golf as a youngster and he was the one I always aspired to be like'

Who would be in your dream fourball? - 'It would be Faldo, Lee Trevino because I'm sure that he would have some great stories and jokes to tell and it would have to be Seve Ballesteros as I would like to get a few short game tips from him!'

January Medal results

The first competition of the year was the January Medal on Saturday, it was a wet start but the rain did ease off on the back nine. Conditions didn't do much to hinder Mike Angel as he scored a nett 65 to claim his second victory of the winter season, the highlight of his round was a birdie on the thirteenth hole. Mike just edged out Order of Merit leader Gareth Eaton on a card play off, according to Gareth his fine round of nett 65 was achieved thanks to his new FootJoy rain gloves he purchased from us that kept his grip solid even when the rain was at it's heaviest.

65 was a popular total as Steve Simmons also scored this but lost out on the card play off, the next competition is the sixth round of the Winter League this Sunday afternoon.

Please note that we have moved the January Midweek Stableford back a week to Wednesday 21st January - this is to avoid a clash with the Age UK golf morning.

Due to the frozen conditions last week the Seniors had to delay their December 18 hole Stableford however it was played on Tuesday and at the top of the pile was a familiar name. Alan Tayler, who also recently won the November Bogey, finished first with 40 points, in second place was another steady player in Ken Powell who scored 37 points and third place went to John Sykes with 37 who has played some great golf since a series of lessons with Adrian.

In terms of competitions, the ladies have had a Christmas break but there is a nine hole Stableford next Thursday 16th January with a start time of 9am.

  • Winter League round 6 – Sunday 11th January 12.04pm
  • Seniors 9 hole Stableford – Tuesday 14th January 9.16am
  • AGE UK golf morning – Wednesday 15th January 9am-11.32am
  • Ladies 9 hole Stableford – Thursday 16th January 9am
  • January Stableford – Saturday 17th January 11am

Titleist white box Pro V's

New Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x Prototype Golf Balls 

What a privilege it is to be seeded some hugely exclusive 'White Box' product - synonymous with the Titleist testing process that takes place on tour. Titleist has been working with its golf ball players on tour to test and validate these prototypes over recent months and among various notable early adopters (such as Adam Scott and Ian Poulter) recent winners with the prototype ball include Bubba Watson and Jordan Speith, twice! The team is immensely excited to test and validate these on the course. Knowing the brand's two-year cycles we might be led to expect an announcement from Titleist early next year. We'll bring you more in the coming weeks.
