It’s another miserable day and it’s not looking good for the weekend. It has been a strange week this week, as we’ve being very busy doing lots of different things.
We had the Seniors Open on Tuesday with more or less a full turn out. It still amazes me how people can enter and pay for a tournament and not turn up or, more to the point, not even phone to say that they are not coming. It really messes the day up; we had four of these offenders on Tuesday. Other than that it was a great day with one of our own, David Gourdie, winning the scratch prize with a great score of 70 - well done, Dave.
The rest of the week has consisted of lessons and meetings; not very exciting, I am afraid.
Demo Day Coming Up
Next week we host our first demo day down at the club. With the new Flightscope launch monitor I can run a demo day for about six hours without needing power as it is now all self contained. Wilson are coming to show off their wares next Wednesday from 2pm until 6pm and they are putting on some great deals.
Wilson Demo Day Deals
Minimum trade in of £100 for your irons against a new set of Wilson irons
Minimum trade in of £50 for your driver against a new Wilson DXI Superlite driver
There will be a dozen FREE balls with every Vizor putter or FG Tour Wedge purchased.

US Open is Here!
It is the US Open this weekend and I must say that the golf course looks brutally difficult. Tiger looks like the man to beat if he can keep playing the percentage game, as he did last night. It will be interesting watching the action unfold.
It looks like the 4th hole is opening this weekend, so it will be great to see what you all think about it. I think the green looks great and that it will play every bit as hard as the previous one. Click here to post your comment.
