Welcome to this weeks newsletter.
You may remember a few weeks ago we asked for some volunteers to come and try some of our new equipment in our Swing Room. Shona Wilson and Midge Henderson volunteered from the Ladies section to be Guinea Pigs and we invited them along to try some Ladies Clubs for us. Both ladies were given full custom fits and were checked for the correct length, lie angles, appropriate shaft flex, and grip sizes. Both ladies had been custom fitted previously so their own Clubs were pretty well suited. That was a great start, and we made some clubs up for them both in Callaway, PING, Cobra, Wilson and Adams. Although the Ladies loved the different colours in the Cobra’s they found that the Cobra and Adams Clubs felt quite light to swing. This meant that they were able to swing the Clubs faster resulting in some extra distance but the feel was not quite right for them. Both Shona and Midge are strong hitters and preferred the heavier feel to the PING and Callaway clubs. We managed to increase Midge’s older PING 7 iron distance from 94 yards to 108 yards with both the Callaway and PING models and increased her Driver distance some 30 yards
Shona hit her PING Rhapsody 7 iron 98 yards and we increased that distance to 106 with the new PING Serene 7 iron. Shona is playing with a TaylorMade Driver at the moment and with the fitting we managed to increase her driving distance from 143 to 153 with the new Callaway X2 Hot.
Following on from this we have had an excellent week of fittings with all golfers seeing a superb increase in distance and also dispersion on every occasion. Some extremely positive results with one customer finding 20 yards on his 7 iron simply by using a higher launching and lighter shaft! Another gentleman was impressed with 25 yard increase on a 5 Wood and one of our Customers found an additional 47 yards on her Driver! We believe we gave Thurlestone members an additional 200 yards last week!

But it’s not just driver fittings that have been going down well! With the new Titleist Vokey SM5 wedges now in store there has been a buzz around the different lofts and bounce angles. With over 6 different grinds available it is important that you find the correct wedge for your set-up and swing style, whilst also making sure it is adjusted to the correct lie angle and length! Lot’s of different options. We have a good selection of the wedges now in stock and ready to demo so please feel free to take them onto the course or practice ground this week!
Monday Junior Member Evenings
This week should have been the start of our Junior Member Club Nights, however with poor weather this sadly had to be cancelled until next week (7th April). For all juniors who wish to attend we would like to update our database for the Junior section in order that we can contact parents more efficiently. We would like to send a ‘Group Text’ update to all attendees which will go out at approx. 3pm on the Monday afternoon if we feel that the weather is too poor for the children to play. For all that attend or plan to attend please click here and fill out the form including your mobile number.
