Greetings golfers, 

Well we've had the cold spell where the course was rock hard and the ball was bouncing a long way in various directions, not always the way you might have thought, and now we have the rain and some soft soggy conditions where the ball doesn't go anywhere when it lands. This game certainly gives us variety in how we have to play different shots. We're always having to change our shot selection to suit the conditions, but that is the game. Whether you are trying to hit the low running shot in hard conditions or trying to fly the ball all the way to the flag in soft conditions, it's what makes this game so much fun to play. One thing you do have to do is once you have decided which shot to play is commit fully to hitting the shot. If you're trying to hit the low shot play the ball back in your stance and take a less lofted club, if it's the high won you want play the ball slightly further forward in your stance and make sure you have enough club to reach the flag.

Congratulations to Phil Coumbe who won the 2016 Grand Prix. 

A season-long competition based on Formula 1 type scoring. 

Phil, who served in the RAF for 22 years before returning to "Civvy Street", has been a regular on the winners podium since he joined the club eight years ago.

In his third year as a member of the club Management Committee, Phil headed the leader board throughout the season in a competition which took off 16 years ago. Points are awarded in qualifying trophy and medal competitions, with the top ten finishers awarded points in descending order.
