Motocaddy lithium battery trolleys are now reduced by £50
If you're in the market for a super, new electric trolley, here's a cracking, offer for you. Between 2nd November and 24th December, any golfer buying a new Motocaddy trolley with lithium battery from me, can claim £50 CASHBACK directly from Motocaddy. All you need to do is provide Motocaddy with a printed proof of purchase and they'll refund £50 back into your nominated bank account. Simples! This promotion is available on all models, but only when sold with a lithium battery.
Callaway drivers reduced dramatically!
I have only one Callaway fairway wood left now that I need to clear. This X2 Hot fairway was £169.99 but is now just £99.99 ! Bonkers!!
Snake Eyes 695 hybrids
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 personalised golf balls
Are you looking for a really great, personalised gift for Christmas? If so, look no further because Titleist are offering to personalise free of charge, any dozen of their golf balls. Please come into the Pro Shop for more details.
New Masters Aquapel iCart bags, Titleist waterproof StaDry cart bags & Callaway waterproof bags
More and more golfers are taking to waterproof trolley bags, so much so, that virtually all of my trolley bags in the Pro Shop are now waterproof.
With waterproof zips and waterproof fabrics, they're not guaranteed to be waterproof because water can still enter the top of the bag but the outside will definitely repel any rain no matter how hard it comes down.
So with that in mind, I now have the Masters Aquapel waterproof bag at £129.99 , the new Titleist StaDry bag at £189.99 and the Callaway AquaDry for £219.99 .
All are excellent and will help keep your golf equipment and personal belongings nice and dry.
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.
Please note that I have several drivers, fairway woods and one hybrid that need to be cleared.
These clubs are either brand new or are in excellent condition and include an X2 Hot Pro 18 ° hybrid reduced from £169.99 to just £120 and a brand new Razr Fit Extreme driver that was originally £299.99 but is now reduced to just £120.
There are many clubs to choose from in both left and right-handed and all clubs are also open to your best offer!
Looking for more distance from your driver? A silly question really because we'd all like to hit the ball farther but one way that can help is to try to hit your ball on the upswing. If you catch it with a descending angle of attack, it will spin more, launch lower and you'll lose distance, particularly against the wind, so try teeing it up higher and imagine you're catching it "on the up", almost as if you're trying to hit the ball higher. Do this, and you should see less spin and greater distance.
