Juniors vs Seniors
The Juniors won comfortably.
Ladies’ Scratch “A” Team versus Brickendon Grange
Ashridge Ladies won 3 – 2 and as a result, have won Group A in Division Two which means they will go up to Division One next season which will be a tough but exciting challenge. They also have to play in the Finals’ Day against the winners of Group B in Division Two and that is likely to be either Moor Park B or Aldwickbury Park – the winner of that match wins Division Two but both teams go up to Division One and the Finals’ Day is Sunday 19th October at Hadley Wood.
Trust Fund Day
Winners: Jacques Keyser, Sara Keyser, Michel Sweers & Julie Ivelaw-Chapman - Nett 49.2

Junior Summer Golf Classes
My first Junior Golf Class of the summer was absolutely fantastic and, should you be interested, there is a second week booked which 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 I only have one or two spaces left!
New self-service Grip Bar
Fresh in this week is my fantastic new Grip Bar. This allows you to see the kind of grips that we offer to replace your old, worn grips on your clubs and you’ll be able to see just what a difference a new grip makes in terms of feel and your ability to hold the club properly because I have a selection of different grips, all on shafts, available for you to try. But the most fascinating part of my Grip Bar is that you can measure your hand to see what size grip is best suited to you. For example, did you know that Nick Faldo used to have twelve layers of tape under the grip on his left hand yet only eight layers of tape under his right? So you can see just how personal and vital it is to have the correct grips and grip size. Please pop in and check out my new Grip Bar!
New club logoed iPad covers
I now have in stock a really lovely iPad cover. These new items come in a really lovely nubuck colour and will protect your iPad whilst making it look really smart at the same time and they're very reasonably priced at £29.99 . Please come into the Pro Shop and take a look.
New club logoed accessories
And if you haven't already seen my fantastic new club logoed holdalls and shoe bags, please come in to the Pro Shop and take a look. And on top of that, I have some terrific new club logoed "micro-fibre" towels which are made of a waffle texture, hold up to 300% of their weight in moisture and are non-abrasive. And on top of that, they can really keep your clubs and equipment clean!
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.
SkyCaddie SGX for sale
And finally this week, I have a SkyCaddie SGX GPS unit that has been used once and I need to clear this unit from stock. This unit has lovely features such as Intelligreen Technology, Target Lists and Interactive Hole Vue and normally retails for £299.99 but I'm happy to accept £225 just to clear the decks.
Grip size – it’s so important!
You may well have read about my new Grip Bar but I thought I’d enlighten you on how an incorrect grip size could affect you. For example, if your grips are too thin, you might hook the ball more and if your grips are too thick, you might slice the ball more and equally, if you slice or hook the ball, we can adjust the thickness of your grips to help relieve any errant ball flights. Come in to us and have a chat about it.
