Adam Dimitri was the winner of our Titleist Golf Ball draw, winning a nice new Titleist golf bag.
It's been a busy week here at Panshanger. The course is playing really well and with some courses around struggling to stay open, we have seen a lot of new faces coming over to play at our course. It's all go go go with regards to the installation of the Performance Simulator. The electrics and cables have been laid and we are literally waiting for the simulator to be installed which will be during the week of the 9th March. We'll go into more detail regarding the simulator later in the newsletter.
The shop continues to get more and more stock dropped. We have some great products in store, not previously seen at Panshanger. More importantly we have demos for you to try the clubs before you buy and mentioning the simulator again we will be offering custom fitting and some demo days going forward.
Continuing our hole by hole we move onto the 7th hole.
Hole 7 - 357/308 Yards (Par 4)
Not the longest hole on the course but plenty of problems are waiting.
The shot for a right hander is at the bunkers with a fade! Beware of over doing it as out-of-bounds lurks all the way down the right hand side. Once in play, a relatively short approach shot to a very large undulating green is the next shot you will encounter.
Ideally, leave the ball right of the flag as generally the green slopes left-to-right.
GC2 Performance Simulator with HMT (Head Measuring Technology)
It was announced two weeks ago that we have been approved the go ahead to install a simulator. I can confirm we have the install date for the week of the 9th of March. To celebrate we are having an official opening weekend on the 21st and 22nd March.
We have secured Andrew 'Beef' Johnston, European Tour Player and ranked just outside world's top 100, to come and launch the simulator on the 21st. Andy will be here from 10.00am, completing a demonstration and talk about his golf swing and what he works on. There will be a Q&A with Andy, a great chance to hear about his 'Open' appearance in 2011 or his Challenge Tour Order of Merit win last year. Your questions, nothing is off the table! We will also have a nearest the pin competition for your chance to try and beat Andy as well as a bit of a clinic. To celebrate the launch we will also be giving away some FREE appointments!
Do you know how far you hit each club?
Yes, really are you sure!? There are many stats that say x% of golfers always come up short and that is mainly because golfers generally don't know how far they hit their clubs consistently. Just because once you hit your 7-iron 190 yards, it doesn't mean you hit that shot every time. The simulator facility really will benefit ALL golfers and not just low handicappers.
So I am giving away:
5 FREE 'Gapping' Sessions
5 FREE game assessments sessions (an MOT if you like)
5 FREE wedge fitting sessions
5 FREE ball fitting sessions
These sessions will be 45 minutes long and on a first come basis and by appointment only.
Also, we have the 'game play option' to play any of the 15 world famous golf courses including Ryder Cup courses: The belfry and Celtic Manor as well as US Open course, Congressional. We will be offering 2 hours for the price of 1 during March and April again these must be booked in advance.
Officially, we will start taking bookings for the simulator as of Monday, 2 March but if you can't wait until then please contact me directly by getting in touch here.
