How best to play the 12th hole
One of the most vital parts of playing the 12th hole is knowing where the pin position is cut before you play your approach shot, so it's vital that before you tee off, you take a look to see where the pin is placed on the green. If the pin is cut on the middle left of the green, ensure you play your approach shot from the very right side of the fairway as this leaves the best line to the flag.
However, if the pin is cut at the very front of the green, make sure you take one more club than you need so that you play your approach into the wider, fatter part of the green, and missing the green becomes less likely. If the pin is cut at the back of the green, ensure you "miss" your approach shot to the left of the green because the slope will help force your ball back down and onto the green. Generally speaking, missing the green to the right of the 12th will leave you nothing but trouble!
Good luck. I hope this helps.

Would you like to start the 2016 season looking great? If so, come in and purchase two Ashworth shirts for just £55 or three for £80. Originally offered at £39.99 each, these shirts are a mixture of colours and offer great designs alongside excellent performance fabrics.
Oakley sunglasses reduced by 30%
I need to clear all of the Oakley sunglasses that are currently in stock so they are reduced by a massive 30%. But hurry, because they'll be gone before you know it!
Clearance bag bargains
I have four "waterproof" bags that I need to clear from stock.
The first two bags are Callaway Aqua trolley bags. The normal RRP is £219.99 but I'm happy to clear these at just £159.99, saving you £60.
The third bag is a Masters Aquapel trolley bag. This bag has been used slightly, was £129.99 but is now just £79.99.
The final bag is a Callaway Aqua Dry Lite stand bag which was £179.99 but is now reduced to just £139.99.
All these bags are made with waterproof material and are superb in quality but don't hang about, because they'll be snapped up in no time!
Last available date for Captain/Pro match
Please note that the Captain and I have released some new dates to play us but we now only have one date left, namely Saturday 9th April. So, if you and a partner would like to play us, please enter your names on the Captain/Pro sheet found on the board in the main foyer or let me know and I'll enter your names for you, but beware, we're on sparkling form and are ready to hand out some thrashings!
Titleist bags are now in the Pro Shop
Please note that I've recently received my first drop of Titleist bags and they look amazing! From waterproof trolley bags to lightweight carry bags, there's something for everyone and with prices starting from less than £100, there's bound to be a bag in there for everyone.

The draw will be made this Saturday 5th March so whilst there's only a little way to go, now's a great time to bag some last minute tickets! The very best of luck to everyone who enters!

Your ball bouncing through the club car park, causing significant damage! Cars can be easily repaired at a price, but the situation could be a whole lot worse if you strike a fellow golfer, or passer-by. We want our members to be covered against such perils – and there are many more, such as theft and loss of golf club subscription - so speak to us about getting covered with Golf Care.
