Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club Director of Golf
Hello everybody, and welcome once again to the latest goings on here at little old Cleobury Mortimer!
As always we have plenty to report from all areas of the club. The main talking point doesn't seem to be: competition results, shops specials or club news but more about my new hair style! Don't worry the 'golf pro's' slick hair will still be around going forwards. Amy will be looking after you all for two weeks as of next week. As I'll be rubbing shoulders with the worlds best at the Abu Dhabi championships.
The course is holding up great considering the weather, pictured here is some of the tree work the green keeping team have being carrying out on the 8th of badgers. This weekend is quiet with plenty of availability in the competition. There is also spaces available on our popular breakfast offer.
Our Annual Sweep Video
Big thank you to everyone who has liked and shared the video we did on our annual sweep, over 4000 people viewed it.
Here is the winner Ian 'Nobby' Gough collecting his prize.
If you missed the video last week please click here to take a look.
We had a Major winner featuring.
The next one we will be doing is for the Masters in April.
The greenkeepers have been busy in the plantations this week.
They have been thinning out the dense areas and taking the higher branches down.
This makes it easier to not only find your ball but will be a lot more manageable for the greenkeepers.

One of the final pieces of 2016 business we did at the club was securing authorised dealer status with Garmin.
We will now be able to offer the BEST terms with the brand with a 48 hour delivery service. I thought it would be a good idea to quickly talk you through the Garmin s20 watch, priced at just £149.99, which Santa was kind enough to get me.
Firstly the look, it looks just like an Apple watch. It's styling and screen shape offers timeless, stylish class.
The watch will pick up what hole you are on even if you skip one. It can measure shots, has a built in scorecard that links to the phone app, plus all the other golf related features: front, middle and back distances, pin placement, hazards and much more.
Now here is where I was so impressed with it. It tracks how many steps you have taken, how many calories burnt and if you have not moved for a period of time it vibrates and tells you to move.
Making this not only a golf watch but also sports/lifestyle watch!
You can also pair it with your phone to allow notifications to be sent to the watch. Therefore you can read text messages, see who has liked your instagram post plus much more.
If you are looking for a golf watch with the added bells and whistles this is for you…. Highly recommended.
Oh and it tells the time…. Bonus!
Colours available - white, black, teal - pop into the shop or email us here and we can get you one on order. £149.99 with a 1 year guarantee.
If you are not sold on the s20 we can get any Garmin golf related watch that takes your fancy.
New Balls Please
The new Titleist DT TruSoft golf ball arrived earlier this week at CMGC. The DT TruSoft proved to be a big hit amongst members and visitors in 2016. Now the Titleist research and design team have engineered a new core and cover formulation that delivers very low spin in the long game for impressive distance along with short game playability. The new DT TruSoft golf ball provides a soft compression feel while delivering impressive distance and good short game playability. The Titleist DT Transoft's are available at just £20.00 per dozen.
As well as the new DT TruSoft golf ball hitting our shelves this week we have also taken delivery of the new Titleist Velocity golf ball. The LSX Core of the velocity is bigger for more ball speed contributing longer distance on all full shots. The Titleist Velocity golf balls are available at just £22.00 per dozen.
If you are after a ball that offers soft feel and good durability then the DT TruSoft is worth a go, if you are after a firmer ball that will spin less and fly higher in order to land steeper so that it stops then why not give the Velocity a go.
Dave - Keep your swing going! Due to the dark nights and the dodgy weather you could all of a sudden find yourself not playing as much golf. It is very important to keep your swing going and having an expert eye over seeing it to make sure no bad habits sneak in. Over December many of you took the 3 lessons for £50 offer I was running.
This is ideal by having one lesson each month in January, February and March. This will ensure your all set for the golf season. Drop me an email to discuss.
Tom - Keep your hands warm, they say golf is all about touch and your not going to get that with cold hands.
Grab some hand warmers for £2 before you play and keep your hands and fingers warm.
You will get a much better grip and feel off the club.
Matt - Keep an eye on your feet - nothing worse than having wet feet!
Make sure your waterproof trousers fully cover your laces and keep the water out.
Amy - Keep hold of the club - rain gloves are the best thing ever in the winter, the wetter they get the grippier they get.
As opposed to leather gloves which lose their grip and feel as soon as they are wet.
A pair cost just £20 and will be your saving grace this winter.

John Does It Again
Huge congratulations go to the mighty John Westley who has secured back to back competition wins by shooting 41 points this past weekend.
The ever green Dean Carpenter and always consistent Ash Cook were second and third but could not get past John.
As mentioned John had a great 2016 and with this form already in 2017 it would suggest he not only loves winter golf but is very much a player to watch out for going into the season.
Well played John.

Will the world's big four dominate once again? Will Matsuyama carry on from where he left off in 2016? How will Tiger get on in his comeback season? Answers to all of these questions and more are just around the corner.
Have a great golfing week and we hope to see you at CMGC very soon.
Dave, Matt, Amy and Team CMGC
