Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club Director of Golf
Hello members, friends and associates of Cleobury Mortimer. What a week it has been, the fairways are nice and dry with the greenkeepers busy cutting grass to get some lovely definition. The scene pictured below was taken on Monday afternoon!

Captains' Drive In
Sunday saw all our captains drive in, with Captain Bob Lucas, Ladies Captain Heather Pringle, Seniors Captain Trevor Warman and Junior Captain Jack Severn, all entering into office successfully.
There was fantastic support from the entire club, with 19 teams playing in the competition, with members from all sections involved. The format was a shot gun start Texas Scramble over Badgers and Deer. Before the competition commenced, everyone gathered for the captains to hit their first drives, some found this particularly scary, especially off the back tees of Badgers with the Bradbury Oak in sight.
During check-in we asked everyone to guess the combined yardage of all the captains' drives. The total number of yards hit by Bob, Heather, Trevor and Jack was 744 yards. The winner, Deborah Fearnley, was just one yard off from this with a guess of 745!
To make the day even more exciting we had Condor Golf System join us to add live scoring to the day. This was a great element added to the day and once everyone stopped for their bacon sandwich and coffee, they were all popping in to see who was leading.
Once everyone was at their starting holes and the air horn had gone off, everyone was underway starting their rounds. Some great golf was played with some awesome scores too. The captains led for the majority of the round, however a bogey on their last hole would cost them the win. The day belonged to the team of Sharon Liggins, Dave Moore, Greg Shorter and Mike Wood, with an EAGLE on the 6th of Deer making all the difference as they won by just one shot. It was Greg's drive they took and Dave holed out from behind the Oak Tree!
1st Place - Sharon Liggins, Dave Moore, Greg Shorter and Mike Wood.
2nd Place - Our Captains: Bob Lucas, Heather Pringle, Trevor Warman and Jack Severn.
Nearest The Pin Winner: Ian Gough
Roll Up's Start
With the clocks about to change, the Wednesday night roll ups return. These are played every Wednesday through the season with the final Wednesday of each month also being a qualifier so you can get your handicap cut.
Simply roll up from 4pm, pay the £2 entry and then the next person who turns up, you have a game with them. This is a great way to meet other golfers and of course enjoy a sociable beer in the bar afterwards.
Club Captain Bob Lucas is also trialing a new idea so that you can play in the roll up at any time throughout the day. However, to make sure you can get on the allocated 9 holes you will need to book a tee time. It is hoped that this will get more people playing who may be strapped for time.
Let the roll ups begin!
CMGC On Tour
As mentioned a few weeks ago, I will be organising a golf holiday to Dubai. Just to put everyone's mind at ease I am on the case with it, and it will be the golf holiday of a life time.
7 places will be available…. Watch this space.
Clive's Putter Success
How much difference does a new grip make? Just ask Clive Jordon!
Clive does not wear a glove, so gets his clubs re-gripped at least once a year to give optimum feel and grip. He dropped his putter and driver into the golf shop and we fitted him with a multi-compound grip for the driver offering a nice chord upper for maximum grip.
The putter was really interesting as he previously had a SuperStroke 3.0, but did not like the thickness and ridged feel. Clive went for the Golf Pride Tour SNSR 140cc, which is almost square in shape with a straight taper finish that fitted in his hands lovely. The 40% softer rubber than any other golf pride grip also gave Clive maximum feel.
18 holes later Clive came back and shook my hand, as he had just shot 45 points around 18 holes! What a difference a grip can make. Drop yours into us to see what they can do for you. Tour SNSR grips are £25 fitted.
Need some accessories for the season? Well we have you covered here at CMGC:
Mini Sharpies - £2
Leather scorecard holders - £10
Pitch Forks and Ball Markers and 2 for £5
Summer FootJoy Socks
No one likes a sock line tan, so these are exactly what you need.
Everyone who buys these socks comment how comfy they are. This is because of the Comfort Seam; this toe seam is designed for advanced comfort and fit. Also in the heel of the socks there is double-layering, which provides support and cushioning. Pick up two pairs for just £15.00.
Taster Membership Returns
As you may have seen from the special mail that went out earlier this week, we launched the next phase in our membership recruitment strategy. The Taster Membership is always our most popular as it offers outstanding value and gives you the chance to work out how much you use your membership and whether it is justifiable to go onto full membership from July 1st.
To sign up please call us on 01299 271112 and we can assist from there.
Alternatively, please register your interest HERE and we can arrange a time for you to visit and have a tour given by Dave or Amy.
