Hello golfers and friends of CMGC, it has been another very busy week here with loads going on and improvements being made. The weather has been great for the golf course nice and windy to dry it out after some heavy rainshowers. Sunday in particular was some of the toughest conditions I have seen at CMGC all year. The greens in particular are rolling really well as shown in this short video by clicking here.

Myself and Tom have been practicing hard ready for the alliance season to kick off, unfortunately Kington was postponed therefore we have extra spaces available for South Staffs, if you would like to play please get in touch.
Pictured: Me teaching Tom using the perfect plain putting tool (priced at £25 in the golf centre). This helps you to keep a nice and straight putting stroke rather than pushing and pulling your putts. A fantastic tool to use before you head out on the course. You simply put the plain on the green practice your stroke without a ball several times then place the ball to develop your stroke. It acts almost like a muscle memory tool the more you use it the more your body will remember the stroke. You should certain notice an improvement with your putting within a couple of rounds.
I have been getting great feedback from my lessons and have picked up a lot of new clients this past week. If you would like a lesson please contact the golf centre or me direct…firstname.lastname@example.org

A good golf sweater is an essential bit of kit for those times when a polo shirt just isn't keeping you warm enough. In Glenmuir's Lomond range you will find some great colours.
Made from resilient pure new lambswool sourced from Britain's best yarn producers.
Breathes naturally to deliver year-round comfort and performance.
Durable and shrink resistant.
Anti-pill performance finish and fully machine washable.
You'll always look the part on and off the course in a Glenmuir sweater and they'll retain their shape long after the first wash. There are no shortage of colour options in the Lomond range, too.
Men's double roll up results
The men's weekend roll up was once again supported fantastically well by the CMGC members over Saturday and Sunday. Some brilliant scores were posted and it was great to see the one and only Paul Francis top the leader board. Yoshi Oyama and Andy Thomas finished second and third respectfully.
Paul shot a fantastic 40 points to win by two however it was not all plain sailing as Paul finished the last hole with zero points after finding the lake on the intimidating 9th of Foxes Run. His playing partners questioned his club selection into the last and rumours were then rife that he was protecting his handicap from a huge cut….. This was later denied by Paul.
CMGC spokesman Dave Pain had this to say on Paul win 'it is great to see Paul get his first win of the season. It is however no fluke, Paul has been playing some great golf for a number of weeks now and it seems to have all come together for this competition'.
Competition winners can collect their prizes from the golf centre.
Rob and Lyn keep on winning.
The end of season Pinner Platter competition and meal was hosted last Sunday. Over the summer the mixed section have been playing nine holes on a Thursday. Each Thursday winners receive prizes and points are put towards a order of merit.
Rob and Lyn Pinner once again took away the order of merit plate.
Rod and Annette Jukes have done a fantastic job organising it this year and we hope they will continue doing it into 2015.
Quiz Night Success
The quiz night that Gary and Sian Hawes hosted on Friday was a great success eight teams took part in a series of rounds from golf to general knowledge.
Chef Mikey put on a brilliant curry at the half way point and after the result a few drinks were shared late into the night. It was great to see the match room packed and we hope to have another early in the new year.
It was a familiar team that took the first prizes The Morris's who won the previous one showed it was no fluke.
A massive thank you to Gary and Sian for doing a great job.
New lines in car park
If you have been at CMGC in the evenings you would have seen that myself and Tom have been getting our hands dirty. We have been busy repainting the lines in the car park, next time you are up check them out. The pictures show the before but by the time we finished certain sections it was to dark to take pictures. This goes with the new entrance, bar furniture and much more to improve the 'first impression' when you get to CMGC.
