I'm delighted to say that Sue Taylor has won the raffle for The Battle of Britain scarf, donated by Glenbrae and my thanks must go to Air Commodore Cynthia Fowler for her help and enthusiasm in helping to raise £239 for The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.
Thanks to everyone who gave towards a very worthwhile cause.

If you're in the market for a super, new electric trolley, here's a cracking, one-off deal for you. I have one Motocaddy S1 Pro, lithium battery trolley in stock which I'd like to clear. This trolley normally retails at £499.99 but I'm happy to save you £50 by letting this go for just £449.99. First come, first served!
Callaway drivers reduced dramatically!
I have a small selection of Callaway drivers that I need to clear. I have either the Optiforce driver or the X2 Hot driver and they were £329.99 and £249.99 respectively but they have now been reduced to just £129.99 each! Bonkers!!

If you're looking for a not-very-expensive hybrid, look no further because I have just taken delivery of some super Snake Eyes 695 hybrids, which at just £69.99 , will be a very fine addition to your bag. Available in both number 4 (21°) and number 5 (24°), they only come in men's right-hand, regular graphite-shafted versions. But hurry, because at this price, they're bound to move quickly!
Titleist company logoed golf balls

If the answer is yes, I'd be happy to supply you with Titleist Pro V1 golf balls for just £39.99 per dozen. This price includes VAT as well as your company logo in full colour on one pole (on one side of the golf ball) but there is a minimum order of 12 dozen and there may be a logo setup charge incurred if you don't already have a logo set up with Titleist.

New Masters Aquapel iCart bags
A recent new addition to the Pro Shop's excellent range of golf bags has been the Aquapel iCart golf trolley bag. Available in black with accent colours in either yellow, green or orange, these bags are extremely well priced at just £129.99 and will help keep your golf equipment and personal belongings nice and dry during wet weather.
Ladies' autumn/winter clothing
If you haven't already seen my recent autumn/winter arrivals ladies, I'd urge you to hurry on in and see what's just landed. I've some beautiful clothing from both Green Lamb as well as PING Collection and all the clothing is designed to help keep you warm and dry as we enter the colder months.
Clicgear push trolleys
I recently ordered some Clicgear push trolleys with the hope of selling a few, but such has been the sell-through that the few I ordered have now been sold but have now subsequently been replaced with two new trolleys, one in black with orange wheels and the other black with lime wheels. As many of you will know, these trolleys are first-class in quality and fold down really small too. So if you're in the market for a terrific push trolley, please let me know or come and take a look ASAP.
Men's Oscar Jacobson lined sweaters are back!
Without doubt, the best-selling men's garment in the Pro Shop is the Oscar Jacobson lined sweater. These fabulous sweaters come club logoed on the left chest and will definitely help keep you warm and dry this autumn and winter. Available in black, navy, charcoal grey and a Prussian blue, these garments sell out really quickly so if you're keen on getting one, I'd act sooner rather than later! P.S. If you want to know just how good they are, just ask any member who's got one!!
Powerbug electric trolleys
And finally, I'm delighted to tell you that I have just agreed to take delivery of some of the Powerbug range of trolleys. This company is based in Windsor and they are growing at a fair old rate, predominantly because their trolleys appear to be extremely reliable and now the trolley and their own lithium battery, which is incredibly small weighing in at just over one kilogram, both come with an unlimited three year warranty! And with just two models to choose from, you won't get baffled with all kinds of "this and that" going on. Please take a look in the Pro Shop from Friday onwards when I hope to have one on display.
Here's a top tip to take advantage of the recent preferred lies advantage! Now we've moved over to being able to clean and place our ball, one thing you can do that will really help you out is to ensure you always take advantage of preferred lies, particularly around the fringes of the greens.
If your ball finishes on the fringe and you're thinking smart, you can always mark your ball and replace it so that you not only have a better lie, but so that you have less fringe to putt across than you would have had originally.
This can help you avoid worm casts and other debris and with six inches of movement available to you, you can really get yourself a much better line to putt across by placing your ball closer to the edge of the green and creating for yourself a better "angle".
