By the time you read this Jane and I will be dining out at Cerutti’s in Hull while we celebrate our 2nd year anniversary. It only seems like yesterday that we were getting married at Beverley Racecourse…how time has flown and how many things are very different now! This will also be our first night out together since Arthur was born…I will let you know how many phone calls we make to the babysitters!
The event was a great success with a full timesheet of men, ladies and juniors coming together to support the Juniors. In the end £1000 was raised, which will go towards coaching, uniforms, away days and all the other things that come with being a Junior member. If you want your children or grandchildren to follow in the footsteps of some of these great golfers, why not bring them to my Junior Fun Golf sessions on a Saturday morning. We start at 10am and the session lasts for 90 minutes, you do not have to be a member of the club and all equipment is provided for you.
It was especially nice to see previous Junior members of Hornsea support the event and I must give a mention to Junior Captain Matt McDonnell on his great speech, well done bud…not bad for your first attempt.
- Play your shot as soon as you get to it not who is furthest away (Ready golf)
- Look for someone else’s ball AFTER you play your own shot
- Take a provisional if you think there is a 10% chance it is lost
- Pick up if you cannot score (stableford and AmAm’s etc)
You may have read last week in Stretton’s newsletter about the changes that are going ahead at Hornsea Golf Club? Adding a small practice facility at the back of the Pro Shop will be of massive benefit to both the golf club and my pupils. I have always been impressed with the amount of practice that goes on by the members, which is then shown in the success the club has during Scratch Leagues, Hull & District and East Riding Alliance to name a few. With this new facility it will give the members a chance to improve the quality of their practice when the weather is not so good and the quality of their warm up before teeing off. From my point of view it will mean that lessons scheduled for winter time will not be affected by the weather and progress in improving your game will not be changed.
Not only will it mean that your progress is not halted, but it will also mean that your lessons will be enhanced as I will be investing in a launch monitor. The SkyTrak is one of the newest launch monitors on the market and is produced by SkyCaddie who I am sure you will all be familiar with.
