Well I really thought that summer had arrived early with the lovely weather that we have had over the last few days. We have had no rain for two weeks and the course is drying out very quickly. The green keepers have been busy cutting the greens, fairways and tees, topping up bunker sand and repairing paths which were worn out over the winter and the whole course looks great, but, today (Tuesday) it seems as if winter has come back. Cold, wet and windy weather has returned and bobble hats, waterproofs and mittens have been returned to action. Let's hope this is a small blip and the hottest summer ever that they have promised us is not far away!
The Recovery Cup finally took place on Sunday after two previous cancellations earlier in the year for bad weather. The sun was shining this time and there was no wind so we were expecting players to really take advantage and take the course apart but for whatever reasons it didn't really happen. Only three players managed to get beat their handicap and get above 36 points. It was Josh Armstrong who triumphed with a three shot margin with an excellent 41 points. Josh has been a member with us since November and is improving quickly so I expect to see his handicap reduce even further in the next few months! Richard Mosson took 2nd place with a solid 38 points and Kevin Macey was 3rd with 37 points. Then there was a 4 point gap to the chasing pack on 33 points. Well done to Josh, Richard and Kevin.

Scotty Cameron Putters
We have had a few new models of the Scotty Cameron Putters arrive. Although a premium price point their design, craftsmanship and performance from decades of work with the world's best players define the Select line of Scotty Cameron putters.
Featuring precision milled, highly refined shapes with tour-validated balance and stability, the new Select line includes three modern blade designs from Scotty's tour-proven Newport family (Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5) and two modern mid mallets (Fastback and Squareback) with innovative new crisscross sight lines for improved alignment.
Select putters use a deep-milled face to deliver tour-proven feel and soft sound. Select weights in the heel and toe are perfectly matched to the shaft length to provide balance and stability. Each model features striking new cosmetics, accented by a new Silver Mist finish with framed and double milled red-dot graphics and double bevelled weights.
Vokey SM5 Wedges
(From their website) Vokey Design Spin Milled 5 (SM5) wedges deliver more spin and more types of shots, providing golfers with more ways to hit it close and shoot lower scores.
Precisely designed and manufactured using proprietary Spin Milled technology, Vokey SM5 wedges provide a distinct performance advantage through new, deeper TX3 grooves, tour-driven shapes and the industry's most extensive range of bounce and grind options. Vokey Spin Milled 5 (SM5) wedges are the best performing wedges in the game, and since 2004, Vokey Design wedges have been the #1 wedge on the PGA Tour and the most played wedge at every level of competitive golf.
