Night Golf draws in!
Our first Night Golf event will take place on Thursday, 24 March and we would like to invite you to join in the fun. On the night you will play five holes of golf and even though you have played them hundreds of times in the daylight, you will be faced with a very different proposition. A pairs betterball event will be played teeing off from 6.30pm with the winners being crowned the "Night Golf Champions". Straight after the game it's all back to the warmth of the clubhouse for a curry buffet, drink and the usual post game analysis/friendly banter.
If you would like to put your name down pop into the pro shop soon to guarantee your place or click here to get in touch. The cost of the event is £10 which includes all the necessary night golf equipment, food and even a complimentary drink.
Warm up to better golf!
This week we take a look at the pre-game warm-up. Just think about yours for a second.
What do you do before you play?
What do the good players do (Tour Pros)?
How close are you to matching their pre-game warm-up that they go through every round?
Now I'm not saying you need to do as much as those guys do, but we do need to make sure we are fully prepared for a round of golf. How many times have you just got into the swing of things after three holes? By this time a scorecard can be ruined. A good warm-up gets you firing straight out of the blocks.
When I ask golfers what they do I get a few different answers back.
"I have a few swings and a few putts"
The best I have had is "I have a coffee and chat to you"
To give you the best possible chance of success you need to improve what you do. My first tip is to note down exactly what you would like to do before your round, taking everything into consideration. Have a look below to see what I would do.
5 minutes stretching - 5 minutes half shots with a wedge - 5 minutes full wedge shots
5 minutes full 7-irons - 5 minutes driver - 10 minutes chipping - 10 minutes putting
So that's a 45 minute warm up. Now add five minutes getting your card and signing in. Add five for a toilet stop and maybe another five to allow for the unknown. So there's one-hour preparation time. I live 30 minutes away from the golf course so for a 10:30am tee time I would have to leave my house at 9:00am if I wanted to complete my full pre-round warm-up. We have the facilities at the centre to do this type of preparation so you don't really have an excuse not to at least give it go. We look forward to seeing and hearing how you get on.
