Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club Director of Golf
Hello and welcome once again to the weekly installment of goings on here at the one and only CMGC. So far it has been a great week with the course certainly at it's peak. With the trees now fully in leaf and the grass growing like crazy, I must applaud the greenkeepers on all their hard work. There are only five of them full time looking after the 200 acre site. Plenty of golfers have commented this week how the course keeps getting better year on year. Like a fine wine CMGC is certainly getting better with age which cannot be said for myself… must have been the tough paper round!
This week we have been back working on the short game area, the green has had some grading done to it to make it more playable and practice friendly. The turf has been re-laid, over seeded and top dressed. As mentioned when we start this at the turn of the year, our goal is to have the best short game area in the West Midlands for realistic on course shots. I think we are almost there now.
Check out some videos of the work below:
Hope to see you all on the fairways here very soon.

Mens Aggregate Medal no.1
What a day it was for the aggregate medal, this trophy competition is a true test of stamina and determination. The competition combines two medal scores with the second one in August. The player with the best aggregate takes home the trophy.
Player of the month, the in-form Lee Glasby, was once again at it with a nett 68; however Ian Orme who also shot a 68, pipped third place with a superior back count on Badgers Sett. Worcestershire under 16's county captain Jack Severn really found some form late on in the day. Jack shot a one under gross around Foxes Run, however bogeys on 10 and 11 slowed him down, but Jack finished strongly for a level par 70, Nett 65.
Adam Cook, also continued his fantastic form. After a slow start around Foxes he rallied really well to get level with his handicap at the turn. Adam was one under gross after four on the back nine. A double bogey on the fifth of Badgers Sett, his 14th, could of lead to the wheels coming off. However he composed himself to par the last four holes and finish on a nett 65, this meant he took top spot on count back.
Adam had this to say…
'I played decent on the front nine and knew if I could get around the front nine to my handicap I could then really go after a good score on Badgers Sett. The course really suited my game with firm fairways and soft greens'.
It was also a very proud moment for myself (Dave), with both Adam and Jack regular lesson clients of mine. Adam has been working really hard on his short game. He hits it great off the tee but we identified the short game needs to be better in order for him to reach single figures. Adam has worked on his putting routine and approach shots from 60 to 120 yards. It is great to see him getting the rewards for his hard work with single figures looming.
Similarly with Jack we have been having weekly sessions lasting around two hours. Jack has worked tirelessly on his putting and scrambling skills, 30 putts on Sunday with no three putts would certainly suggest it is paying off.
The lesson successes do not stop there this week! Thank you to Martin Matthews for sending me this fantastic feedback:
Well, what a difference a lesson makes. I was struggling with my set-up which was affecting my direction & distance, consequently my confidence and scoring ability. Having spent an intensive 1 hour with David, he highlighted the small tweak needed to correct my set-up. We also sorted the small difference that teeing to the correct height makes off the tee. All valuable information in pursuit of enjoyment of this wonderful game. Thank you very much David

Do you like limited edition products with a high re-sale value…. If that's the case we have something that is right up your street. To celebrate the 68th US Open, Titleist have released some limited editions ProV1's and ProV1x's. This is the only promotion the number one ball in golf does.
The balls come in special limited edition packaging and are numbered 68.
We have just 6 dozen ProV1's and 6 dozen ProV1x's available. They are for sale in the golf centre now and on a strictly first come first serve basis. My advice is buy a dozen and put away in a cupboard and sell them for double in a couple of years time.
Any questions drop one of the team an email here. Pictured are the balls and the promo plinth…. It was a bit of a squeeze but I managed to get into the photos!
Scratch Team getting ready to start the season
The Scratch Team tee off their season at the beginning of June and after last years great escape from relegation the team are looking to draw inspiration from Leicester City FC and mount a serious title challenge.
The team begin with two tough away games and the fixtures will come thick and fast over the next few months but it is something Scratch Team Captain Tom Pain is looking forward to.
'The team has seen a lot of changes over the last year or two but I have seen over the winter period that some of the regular players have been playing some great golf, particularly Jack Severn and Josh Rowbotham. Hopefully we can have a strong season and give some more form players they're Scratch Team debuts. Having worked hard on my short game over the winter and some recent warm weather training in Florida I can't wait for the season to start'.
Pictured is one of the holes during Tom's warm weather training.
