August 2021 - Olympic Golf, Summer Fun & New Faces….
July saw the easing of all COVID-19 restrictions in England, meaning more people are getting out and about and picking up on hobbies they’ve not been able to pursue over the last 18 months. It’s been great to see more and more fresh faces through the door, and we just want to say a big thank you to all our customers for continuing to respect individual opinions on masks and distancing, and making the transition as seamless as possible.
It’s been a wonderful few weeks for sport too! Collin Morikawa continued to show why he is one of the best young players on tour by winning his second major in The 149th Open at Royal St. George’s in front of a huge crowd. The Olympic Games also got underway, and we’ve all enjoyed watching Team GB have a highly successful games so far. The men’s golfing event was a superb advert for the game, with Xander Schauffele taking home gold for the USA after 4 days of closely contested competition. The excitement didn’t end there though, with no fewer than 7 players facing off in a playoff for the bronze medal in what was a fascinating change to the norm! Although golfs involvement in the games has been hotly debated, this years edition more than supported its inclusion, and could pave the way for additional events such as team and mixed competitions in future games.
The breaking up of schools for the summer has seen loads of juniors spending time down at the range having some active fun with friends and family. Mark has been hosting some Junior Summer Camps which have been hugely popular, and provided an opportunity for keen young golfers to learn the fundamentals of the game. What’s even better to see is some of them taking up membership with the club and hopefully having gained a new hobby for life!
Due to the amount of new faces we are continuing to see Mark will also be hosting some beginner golf courses starting in a few weeks time. These courses will provide the perfect opportunity for those new to golf or interested in giving it a go the chance to learn the basics of grip, posture and swing mechanics. The relaxed environment of the range provides the ideal setting to gain confidence with a club in hand, and might even allow you to meet some like-minded future golfing buddies!
