Pros news 

T Shirt Weather at Last 

We have finally seen golfers out on the course wearing short sleeve shirts during the week!! It seems like so long ago since we last saw golfers in their summer clothing, and for the last 6 months we have been covered up in our waterproofs, base layers and woolly hats...

The lighter nights and brighter conditions have also prompted some of the fair weather golfers to dust off their clubs and head to the Range, with many booking refresher coaching sessions and short game sessions.

One of the most common fixes I have been helping golfers with lately is the Grip. Most of us just need a little reminder about where the club should sit in your hands, and the grip will have the biggest influence on the blade at impact. Not all grips should be the same, as each is individual and will work in different ways with different swings. There are a few fundamentals which we need to remember including the position of the club in the left hand, and how the right forefinger and thumb can influence ball flight.

I like to encourage golfers to look for a 2-3 knuckle grip in the left hand, and to pinch the club with the forefinger and thumb on the right hand.

If you would like me to check your Grip then please call into the pro shop or driving range and the team will be happy to help.

Masters Prize Winner 

We had a huge response to the Masters Prize competition last week and I am pleased to announce that Andrew Ward was our lucky winner, answering with Nick Faldo and 1996 to win the Augusta Ball marker.

New Arrivals 

We have just received a stunning collection of J.Lindeberg clothing in both stores, and the response has been fantastic. 

We have a limited amount of stock and when it's gone it's gone. 

Call in this weekend and receive 10% OFF if you spend over £100.00.

Lytham Golf Academy News

We have managed to get out on to the outfield with the mower as the range is now drying out. As you will see, the middle of the range is still very soft and balls hit into this area will just plug into the mud, however the front, back and sides are now firm enough for us to use the ball collector. 


We must thank you for your support and patience, and hope the conditions haven't affected your practice too much. 

We are starting work on the short game area again in the next few weeks, and hope to have that area up and running ASAP.
