Hello members and friends of CMGC. It has been the best week of 2014 for us with glorious sunshine gracing us. It was great to see the car park packed and some familiar faces after a winter to forget.
The greenkeepers have been hard at work cutting the greens, tees, surrounds and fairways it is amazing what some fresh strips on the grass does for the definition.
Course manager Adam Clifford has also fertilised all the greens with a mixture of 6-5-10 + iron + magnesium. The Iron and magnesium hardens and toughens the grass increases disease resistance and kills any moss that was formed over the winter. The 6-5-10 mix then stimulates the grass to encourage a steady growth and a strong root zone formation. We believe by doing this work now the course will be well ahead of schedule going into the season!
Does anyone know what the 6-5-10 mixture is? That's enough of the greenkeeping education for this week!
We would now like to welcome Phil Moore who is joining team CMGC as our head coach! Phil has to serve four weeks notice in his current job and will be joining us April 8th. Phil will be at CMGC all day this Friday to sign his contract and meet as many people as possible. He will also be taking bookings for lessons, a coach of his calibre will soon find his diary full. We put Phil through a vigorous three hour interview that included some coaching, academy plans, practice facility development and much more. We are delighted to have someone of Phil's skill set joining us and see this as a massive coup for the club and membership. To prise him away from a top academy in Belfast and relocate to Shropshire really sends out a message of intent that CMGC is the place to be!
Phil gave two lessons one to Richard Chandler and one to club champion Nigel Williams here is a bit of feedback we received from them.
Richard: 'I had a 30 minute short game lesson with Phil and was very impressed he was friendly, professional and within minutes got me hitting better shots. I was particularly impressed with the technical aspects and how he explained them simply and easy to understand'.
Nigel: 'Phil immediately made me feel at ease with his friendly manner we worked on my full swing and I was very impressed. He explained what he wanted me to do and was always asking questions to make sure I knew what I was doing. With Phil's appointment confirmed I will most definitely be having lessons off him this season.'
A fine example of Phil's skills is his current diary where he is working. Last Friday he had 21, yes 21! Lessons back to back booked in!
Here is a quick message off Phil:
'I am delighted to be joining Cleobury, I have played the course many times and loved the atmosphere of the club. My main duties will be coaching and looking after the membership. I look forward to meeting as many members and friends of Cleobury as possible on Friday'.
I will be writing more on Phil, his plans for CMGC and his history next week. There is just so much going on at the moment its hard to cram it all in!
