Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club Director of Golf
Hello everyone and welcome once again to the latest goings on here at CMGC.
The rainy season appears to be here and we do have some restrictions on trolleys etc. Please call us or email before you play to make sure you comply with these. We still have plenty to report this week, although the course is wet in places it must be said the lads on the green keeping team are doing a sterling job with the greens and keeping the high traffic areas barked and fully playable.
Don't forget it is the Hendry 3 club this Saturday. A fun competition whereby one of the biggest and best trophies will be up for grabs. Remember it is 3 clubs in total one of which MUST be a putter. My choice would be 17 degree hybrid, 8 iron and putter. If you fancy entering call us on 01299 271112 or click here.
Golf Makes You Do Crazy Things
They often say golf can make you do some crazy things and one of our new members, Andrew Wilkins has a great story from last weekend.
Andrew, who has been having regular lessons with myself, recently had his best round... He then headed on home and got engaged!
Of course I text Andrew to congratulate and his reply was priceless...
'I kept saying to Sarah, when I have a good round of golf I will propose, and here we are three and a half years later!'
A big congratulations from all here at CMGC, pictured here is the happy man!
Alan Grainger MOT Success
The MOT's are coming to CMGC thick and fast and this week and we have a great story from Alan Grainger. Alan dropped his clubs into us and Tom was left to do the MOT.
Upon inspection it was apparent Alan's clubs were 2 degrees upright. After consulting Alan we found he misses a lot of shots left, we knocked it down just 1 degree and now Alan is hitting it much straighter.
"I can't believe how good value for the money the MOT deals are. Tom was fantastic in explaining the process to me, so that I began to understand about loft and lies and how important they are and what a difference they can make. We decided to move my clubs by just 1 degree and I can't believe the huge difference it's made in my game" Alan Grainger.
Remember it costs just £20 for the same MOT as Alan which includes 2 clubs re-gripped, loft and lies checked and adjusted if needed plus a golf bag analysis. Drop them in and we will get them sorted within 24 hours for you. You don't have to be a member to take up this offer, it is open to all.
Texas AM Results
It was great to see the Texas AM so busy last weekend with 14 teams entering the competition. The course conditions certainly looked to favour the early starters with the very first team out of Tom Guest, Nick Firth, Tom Judge and Paul Judge shooting a very impressive 101 points. With the conditions changing throughout, the guys scored held on until the second to last team out pipped them to top spot by one point.
The team specialists of Ash and Adam Cook, Matt Fairman and Lewis Hodges shot an incredible 102 points with just 3 points on the last hole. When I saw the lads thawing out in the bar after they all agreed that finding fairways was the difference.
"No matter whose drive we took we managed to find the fairway, it was tough conditions and it was great to see so many teams entering."
A special mention must also go to Greg Shorter, his team had to take his drive on the last hole (9th of Badgers) and under the pressure what does he do…. Top it into the lake and they finished with zero points!
Captains' Drive In
Your club Captains; Bob Lucas, Trevor Warman, Heather Pringle and Jack Severn, invite you all to play in The Captains' Drive In. This event is open to all, both 7 and 5 day members and Juniors.

New Under Armour
As I write this, UPS have just delivered 10 boxes of new Under Armour gear. Get those vouchers out that you have been saving, as it will all be on display ready for the weekend. We have jumpers, shirts, hats, socks and much more. Under Armour are now the number one apparel brand in golf.
Come and check out our range.
Golf Pride Trip
Last Thursday we managed to beat storm Doris and head to the Belfry for a special event hosted by Golf Pride. We were some of the first people in the UK to see the new align grips. As pictured there is a big red line down the back of the grip. This is ribbed and therefore offers superior comfort when gripping the club and also helps align your hands for a more consistent grip.
1 in 3 tour pros use ribbed grips as opposed to just 11% of amateur golfers. Golf Pride are therefore hoping to massively increase this with the grips available in the UK around June, we of course will be stocking them.
I also managed to have a chat with Craig and Connor about a grip that would suit people with arthritis. If you have restricted movement with your hands you should be looking at a CP2 Pro Oversize. This is a really sticky grip and also has a non taper finish meaning it is fatter down the club. The counter core insert will also stop any vibrations from the club.
Come and have a chat to Dave about these grips or click here to watch a video.
Two More S20 Watches
I have managed to get my hands on two more S20 watches with a retail price of £150 as opposed to £179.99 which is their current price. I have 1 in black and 1 in blue. We have spoke about the benefits of these watches before and I even spoke to one member who said he no longer wears his Rolex and keeps his S20 on all the time. If there was ever an endorsement for a watch it would be that!
Features of the watch include:
- AutoShot™ game tracker automatically tracks shots3 along the fairway
- Get better guidance during your approach with distances to hazards, doglegs and layups
- CourseView feature automatically updates frequently played courses for free
- Combines sporty design with activity tracking and smart notification
- Up to 15h of golf per charge in full GPS mode
- Count calories, steps and set goals.
