Great clubs not to be missed
Over recent years I have accumulated a number of really nice golf clubs that I have used while playing in tournaments. Due to a lack of storage space I will be selling these off in the pro shop. As you can imagine all these clubs are in great condition so come along to the shop and have a look at what is available.
The TP Tour
Last week I played in a TP Tour event held at Royal St George’s golf club in Kent. Having played there in 2003 in the Open Championship it was great to get back and play the course again as I haven’t played it for over a decade. The TP Tour is a tour run by former European Tour golfer Ronan Rafferty and it attracts some big names like Roger Chapman, Tom Lewis and Nick Dougherty. I ended the day with a score of 73 and finished in a tie of 10th.
Ely City Pro-Am on Friday the 22nd of August
The Ely City Pro-Am will be taking place on Friday the 22nd of August. The Pro-Am gives you the chance to play with a top East Region PGA professional and use this opportunity to entertain your clients/guests.
The Pro-Am also offers you the ability to promote your brand or company through sponsorship. This year we will be offering sponsorship from just £100 a hole. If you would like to advertise your company or services at the Pro-Am, please click here to contact me and tell me which hole you would like to sponsor.
The Pro-Am is a great day starting with coffee and bacon rolls upon arrival. Then you will be playing 18 holes with a PGA Professional before ending the day with a two course meal followed by the prize giving.
If you would be interested in entering the Pro-Am as an individual or bringing a team of three, please click here.
