Tip of the week!

NOW that the winter is here you will notice that the greens at most clubs are a bit slower than a few weeks ago and, if you are playing later in the day, there will be some footprint damage around the hole, which can knock your ball off line.

Therefore, when you are attempting to hole those tricky 2-5ft putts, make sure that you hit the ball firmly with a slightly longer follow through than usual.

This will make sure that you finish the stroke properly and will reduce the chance of the ball wandering off line.

Happy golfing!
