Club house improvements

The new Coffee Bar area is gathering praise as surrounding folk are finding the Club a great place to come and relax! And this week a new dance floor was laid which will really help with functions in the bar! With the added seating area gained from reducing the size of the bar counter earlier on this year. It’s great to have the extra space for tables etc!

The direction of technology
Tracking everything
Most of us think that the advances in golf equipment must come to an end.
Especially as the design of clubs (and golf balls) is now so tightly regulated.
But, we suspect there’s another big change on the horizon.
The data gathered from launch
monitors blew away some myths,
and opened the eyes of club
designers, fitters, and golf coaches
to what produced the biggest improvements.
Launch angles, spin rates, smash
factors, rise angles, face angles,
angle of attack can now all be
used with different clubs, to
create an exact fit to your
performance in the fitting bay.
But, what’s coming is the capture of your data on every single shot you play. There are already clubs and gadgets that allow the collection of some of the data required to fit you.
As that is filled out and refined, when you come into have a fitting we’ll be able to download your on-course data and know the exact specifications that will help improve your playing performance.
Experience the impact on your game now
If you haven’t been for a fitting, then we’d encourage you to at least schedule a driver assessment.
With the knowledge we now have about ball flight and what creates the optimum result,
we can often create quite spectacular improvements.

 Srixon Z 785 and Z 585 Irons
 The new Srixon Z 785 and Z 585 both offer exciting new advancements in technology

What motivates you?
The social experience or …
We’re very interested in gaining a better understanding of what’s important to you.
Over the next three weeks, we’d like you to answer a simple question each week.
We won’t store any personal data, indeed you won’t even have to give us your name (unless you want to).
But we will collate the data to gain a better understanding of what we need to improve.
So starting this week:
