Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club Director of Golf
Hello one and all, I do hope you have had a good week.
As we approach the half way point of the year, I feel it is the right time for a bit of reflection. How is your golf going, are you playing enough, are you practicing enough? If not try and make some time, even if it's just 20 minutes on our short game area. The set up and course condition is very good at the moment, you will be kicking yourself if you don't take advantage.
A big congratulations goes to Paul Francis who won the roll up on the weekend with 41 points. Paul has a lesson booked with Dave today, not quite sure how he can be improved, but will give it a go!

US Open Tips!
It is so hard to pick a winner at the moment with no one really showing form, but here are our predictions.
Henrik Stenson to win 30/1 - One of the best swings on tour and knows what it takes to win a major. He has had a quiet 2017 so far, but that will change in Memphis.
Alex Noren each way 60/1 - Coming from nowhere to win at Wentworth and he is very consistent.
DJ to win 8/1 - This course is all about driving and he is so long off the tee. I am assuming he is renting a bungalow after the Masters stairs fall, should be well in the mix!
Danny Willet each way 250/1 - Showing no form what so ever and will therefore be a big price. He has had time off to work on his game, The US Open will be the perfect tournament to get back to form.
Justin Rose 25/1 - Went close at The Masters and is a big game player, I would expect him to be challenging come the back 9 on Sunday. Hits it a long way and if he can find some form on the greens, he could easily clinch his second US Open.
Rory McIlroy 12/1 - An obvious choice and won't make you a fortune if you like to have a little flutter, but it's Rory McIlroy! He is arguably the best driver of the golf ball in the world and obviously hits it a long way. He was disappointed to see some of the thick rough cut down at Erin Hills, so his game and confidence must be in great shape. A recent change of putter could also help his quest to get back to world number one.

I found this picture on the weekend, just a little bit different to what it was back in 1993!
Cleobury Mortimer Celebration Day!
On Saturday 10th June, Cleobury was hosting a community celebration day with lots of things going on!
I (Amy) & Tom headed up to the Sports & Social club to take our place on our designated CMGC stand!
We were loaded up with lots of information about the mighty CMGC and allowing people to have a go by hitting balls into the blow up nett which we also had situated up there!
Sadly the wind wasn't in our favour, however the weather was dry and we had loads of people milling around, giving it a go and gaining information about the place! It is great to advertise Cleobury within the community, as there are many people who don't realise we are here! Hopefully we will see some new faces getting involved in the game and just coming up for a drink!
CMGC members don't forget to get your subs paid nice and early to go into our prize draw.
We have over £800 worth of goodies up for grabs.
All you have to do is pay for your 2017/18 golf by July 9th. Everyone that has will go into the draw for the following.
1st - Electric Motocaddy Trolley
2nd - Motocaddy Pro Series Golf Bag
3rd - Lucky 7 Lesson Package With Dave
4th - 2 dozen Pro V1s
5th - 1 dozen Pro V1s
Please note: a nice set of biceps like Dave's pictured are not in the draw!
Mixed Golf Thriving at CMGC
Sunday 11th June the mixed Cleobury team hosted a mixed team from Ombersley GC. After the usual getting to know each other sessions in the conservatory, both teams took to the course to do battle, not just against each other but also to battle against the increasingly strong wind.
Despite the ever-increasing strength of the wind, some great golf was played. Congratulations go to Derek and Beryl Eastwood for the biggest win of the day with an impressive 6&4 victory in their match. I would like to thank Lynn Jinks, Susan Davis and Simon Johnson for stepping in at short notice to cover some unavoidable withdrawals. Despite the last minute changes, Team Cleobury secured a second successive home win of 5.5 to 2.5.
Back by popular demand our Motocaddy trade in is on again for the rest of June.
You simply get £20 OFF any of these new ones as pictured when you trade in your old one!
With the £20 OFF prices start from just £80.
Which ball is right for your game?
It can be tough to know which ball will give you the perfect performance from tee-to-green, so to help you make this decision Srixon has released a limited number of Performance Packs - each containing a sleeve of three of the AD333 Tour, AD333 and UltiSoft golf balls – for you to try and compare.
Reserve yours here
|So what's the difference?|
|Video of the week|
Erin Hills will be the site of the 2017 U.S. Open, so here we take a look at what makes this relatively young course so special.
Have a great golfing week and we hope to see you at CMGC very soon.
