Ely City Golf Club Pro-Am 2015

Registration will take place in the Pro Shop, where either myself, Paul or Jamie will be on hand to welcome you to the event and get you signed in.

PING launches two new iron ranges
Last Thursday was the official launch of the new PING i irons and the new GMax iron range. These irons are aimed at different golfers with the GMax iron offering unbelievable distance with a high trajectory for those firm greens, while the new I series irons are a players iron that any level of golfer can use. This is thanks to the progressive blade length design and a new 431 stainless steel to give even softer feel and improve the strength to weight ratio.
