Greetings from Peter Cherry

Captain's Day Mixed Foursomes

Saturday saw the start of the Captain's Weekend action and what a lovely day it turned out to be as 42 pairs showed up for the Mixed Foursomes and leading the way with a quite stunning score was the pair of Ed & Anne Tenison who smoked round the course in 43 points! Alan & Jan Ledger then finished in second place on countback from Roger & Sheila Smith, both couples finishing on 36 points.

Captain's Day Men's Stableford

And on Sunday, the good weather again returned and this time, 96 players took to the course and it was Peter Makower who played some superb golf by finishing with 40 points to win the Captain's Prize. Second place was secured by Cameron Doogan with an excellent return of 38 points and third was taken by Charlie Aylwin on countback, Charlie returning a fine score of 37 points.

Men's Midweek Stableford

On Thursday afternoon, Steve Connor played beautifully to win the stableford with 41 points whilst Matthew Carter also played very well but finished just a point further behind.

Ladies' vs Huntercombe

On Tuesday, our ladies played a friendly against Huntercombe and came out on the right side of a 2 ½ - 1 ½ scoreline.

Ladies' Medal

In Thursday's Ladies' Medal, which was a "Reductions Only" competition, Belinda Silver topped the Silver Division with a fine nett 71 and won by four from Kate Eckett. In the Bronze Division, Edda Aitchison returned to the winner's podium with a fine nett 75 whilst Jacki Tannett took the runner's-up spot with a nett 78.

 

Ashridge Seniors versus Woburn

Whilst on Thursday morning, our Seniors took on the might of Woburn and won 3 ½ - 2 ½.

Junior Summer Golf Classes

I'm very pleased to say that my Junior Summer Golf Classes are again being held this year. There are two weeks of classes and the first week runs from Monday 14th July to Friday 18th July inclusive and the second week runs between Tuesday 26th August to Friday 29th August inclusive. Each day begins at 9am and lasts until 10:45am and is a great way for kids to get some good, old-fashioned fresh air and exercise! So, if you'd like your child/grandchild to participate, please stop by the Pro Shop, collect a form and return it with your cheque. But please hurry because spaces are limited and I've already had several reservations!

Lithium batteries

I don’t know about you but the regular “lead-acid” batteries don’t seem to last very long these days, so the answer is simple: a brand new lithium battery. These batteries are so good in so many ways and the benefits over a lead-acid are numerous, such as, they will recharge in about three hours, you will get about five times more life out of a lithium than a lead-acid, they’re more powerful and they’re incredibly light! And at £199.99 , they will also come with a brand new charger and a fantastic two year unlimited warranty and a five year limited warranty. So for further details, please pop into the Pro Shop.

New Under Armour and Greg Norman club logoed shirts

If you haven't already seen these fantastic shirts, I'm pleased to tell you that I have just received some beautiful and high quality shirts from both Under Armour and Greg Norman. Both companies have club logoed the shirts for me and there are some striking designs and colours so if you'd like to find a great gift for Fathers' Day or you'd simply like to freshen up your wardrobe, you know where to come!

R & A and the anchoring debate

If you haven’t already seen the news, I have a link to the R & A website that will allow you to see in pictures, just what they declare “anchoring” is and isn’t. How they’ll enforce it though, is anyone’s guess!

Waterproof cart bags

There's definitely a trend towards waterproof golf bags and I'm certainly selling more of these so I'm pleased to tell you that I now have in stock some really super waterproof bags. These 14 way organiser bags come in a very inoffensive black colour, are fairly lightweight and will fit onto just about every electric trolley and just as importantly, they're about £40 or £50 cheaper than other well-known brands. So if you're thinking about a new waterproof trolley bag, you know where to come.

Men's Callaway ¼ zip merino sweaters

If you're looking for a truly beautiful and superb quality ¼ zip sweater, look no further because I have the solution. I have just taken delivery of the superb ¼ zip Callaway merino sweater and these sweaters are absolutely beautiful. They have the softest of feels against the skin, come in light grey, light blue, petrol blue or black and are NOT club logoed which means they can be worn anywhere. I anticipate these items will sell through quickly so please come in to the Pro Shop soon to avoid disappointment.

Callaway Golf special offers

My annual Callaway Golf Demo Day last Saturday was a huge success and I'd like to thank everyone who attended and placed an order. If you are unaware, there are still a couple of great offers which you can view below:

  • Purchase an X2 Hot driver and receive a hybrid absolutely FREE of charge
  • Purchase any seven irons (can be a mixture of irons and hybrids) and receive a matching wedge absolutely FREE

But don't leave it too long as these offers will expire soon!

Click here to visit my website and learn more about the offers I have at the moment.

New assistant

And finally, I now have a new assistant in the Pro Shop in the shape of Tom Butler. Tom has worked for me before and, as a member of the club, knows exactly what's what and how things are done so I'm looking forward to Tom starting officially from the 1st July, although he will be working several days in June.

At this point, I'd also like to thank my other assistant, Stuart Hall, for all his hard work, efforts and commitment whilst we've been a man down. As many of you will know, the Pro Shop is open 77 hours a week so manning that is extremely difficult when there's three of us, let alone two of us, and Stuart has been absolutely superb in helping out and has never failed to be "available". So thanks Stuey - you've been a real star!

 

Let your head move with the shot

One of the worst tips you'll ever get is "Keep your head down". This is a throwaway line that club golfers use with each other and keeping your head down actually causes more harm than good. So the next time you're playing, allow your head to turn with the downswing and let your head move with your shoulders and body as you turn into a fully unwound finish.

Good luck!

 
 
 
Enjoy the read and have a great weekend.
 
 
 
Use the 'tee drill' to groove a powerful strike

Last week we looked at how brands are creating irons that offer more distance than ever before. With a 9-iron in your hands, as opposed to a 7-iron, we're talking more looks at birdies - so long as your ball-striking is sound. So, here's a drill to help you deliver cleaner, more powerful strikes...

Versatile clothing for a changeable climate

We've all been there... it's raining one minute, sunny the next, raining again, sunny two minutes later. This is where having a good selection of layers comes in handy. This is where golf-dedicated brands really deliver - and what's more, those layers come with complete freedom of movement.
