We are now offering junior golf lessons which begins on Saturday, 20 August. The time slots are:
The cost is £8 per child and they need to call reception to book (01707 276276).
We have just ordered in lake balls which we will sell in the shop for £1 each. If you're looking for a cheaper glove then we have some available for just £5.99.
We are now re-booking for winter golf societies with lower prices starting from November 1st. Contact reception to book or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't forget that we are holding our Men's Senior Open on Friday, 30 September.
This Wednesday and Thursday (17th and 18th), the greens will undergo maintenance work where a machine will slit and raise the turf, followed by an injection of sand. This will help to eliminate thatch on the greens. Please be aware that there may be temporary greens in place throughout the two days.
Just what was needed
We can't think of a more deserving winner than Justin Rose, golf's first Olympic champion since 1904 - a huge congratulations to him on winning gold after a thrilling final-round duel with Henrik Stenson. Make no mistake, golf needed this positive outcome after several high-profile golfers decided not to compete in Rio.
"That felt better than anything I've ever won. It was the best tournament I've ever done"
This was a quote from Rose's post round interview - a former US Open champion let's not forget.
"Hopefully we've shown Brazil what golf is about. I'm glad it was close. Not for my nerves. For golf."
Rose relished the opportunity to represent Great Britain, arriving in Brazil a week before the Olympics officially started to ensure he was part of the opening ceremony. Anyone who follows the Englishman on Twitter will know what competing in the Olympics meant and how genuine he is about helping to grow the game. With a global audience of approximately 4 billion, it's fair to say Rose, Stenson and the rest of the Olympic field put on a fantastic show, doing a superb job of showcasing everything that's good about the game. Jordan Spieth has already tweeted his ambition to represent USA in Tokyo in four years', which tells us a lot. Roll on 2020!
