2015 is another exciting year in the golf industry with all manufactures bringing out new and innovative products. In the last few days PING have announced a few new products that will be added to their current line up including the new PING G30 LS (Low Spin) driver, Glide wedges and Cadence TR putters which includes a line of heavy putters to help stabilise your putting stroke.
This year we have decided to stock a few different brands to try and improve the variety of goods we can offer you. I'm pleased to announce that we will be stocking ECCO golf shoes later this year. ECCO golf shoes have a reputation as one of the most comfortable golf shoes available so I can't wait to have these in stock to offer them to you. On the clothing front I have decided to stock Daily Sports again for Ladies as their 2015 range is fantastic and I'm sure our lady members and visitors will love it.
Lastly, as I'm sure you can appreciate it very difficult for a small golf shop like ours to stock all of the leading brands in golf. This is why I'm a member of the UK's largest buying group, Foremost. As a member I have access to all of the major brands without having to hold thousands of pounds worth of their stock. So if you are interested in getting equipment from brands like, Callaway, TaylorMade, Wilson, Cobra, Nike etc we can get them for you at extremely competitive prices. Just let us know what you're interested in and we can work out prices for you.
It's with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of two of the clubs great characters, Kevin Page and Paul Ruskin.
Kevin Page had been a member at Ely for over 14 years and I can honestly say I'd never seen him without a smile on his face. He would always call the Pro Shop and have a joke with us about closing the tee as he was coming up to play. Kevin will be sadly missed by all us here at the Pro Shop.
Paul Ruskin had been a member here since 1996 and was a great character that did so much for numerous charities and the golf club. He organised lots of events to help raise money even taking part in a few Macmillan 72 hole challenges and would regularly be seen playing with the BAGS and the POETS. Again Paul will be sadly missed by all of us in the Pro Shop.

The outgoing Captains, Dave Woods and Binnie Bridgeman will putt out before your new Captains, Mick Munnelly, Ruthie Ashton, John Papworth and Chloe Ashman Drive In. We hope to see you on the day.
