Okay, Augusta may seem like a million miles away and you've probably not even started thinking about The Open; well, actually, maybe you have for this year the Claret Jug travels to one of the game's greatest golfing theatres, St Andrews. We won't say roll on July because there's so much to look forward to between now and then but what with Rory McIlroy's career Grand Slam a mouth-watering possibility and the return to action of a certain Tiger Woods, not to mention our own exciting calendar of events, it really does promise to be a fantastic year for golf.
So, if you want to make the year a memorable one, a year in which you take your game to the next level, be sure to speak to the team about your game so we can help, whether that's on the equipment front or with a lesson or two. Here's to a great year of golf.

One of the features we will be adding to our weekly newsletter this year is a hole-by-hole guide of how to play the each hole the best way. So let's get started!
Hole One - 387/324 Yards (Par 4)
Quite a tough opening hole greets you as you stand on an elevated tee looking down at a fairway that slopes left-to-right. There is more room to the left than there looks as long as you can clear the first tree that edges out from the left. The ideal tee shot is to hug this tree so that when the ball lands and rolls it stays away from the two well-placed bunkers on the right side of the fairway.
From here the second shot still needs your attention. The green is long and can play as much as two club difference so club up and make sure to reach the green. Anything short will bounce right and a tricky uphill chip will be the result. The green has a subtle tier but as long as you are on the correct level an easy enough two putt should see you through this hole.
