Well, Storm Doris certainly showed her teeth last week, but even though we were closed on Wednesday there was not too much damage to report. A few of you took up our service of renting the studio out so that you could keep that swing going as Doris did her worst.
On the other side of the pond Rickie Fowler played some impressive golf to just win by four shots at the Honda Classic. It was great to see him and Tyrrell Hatton walking the fairways in the final round on a Sunday chatting like old friends, very refreshing to see and a great advert for the game, would have been even nicer if Hatton was leading.

We will show you some key factors affecting a putt, give you some ideas on how good you "should" be for your handicap range, and talk you through how you can use technology to help improve your game. There will also be time for a Q&A, so save your questions up for the end.

Learn Golf In A Day
On Wednesday, 22 March and Thursday, 9 March Dean is holding the very popular "Learn Golf In A Day" here at Girton Golf Club. If your spouse or partner, or a family friend, has ever fancied having a go at golf, then this low cost day and is perfect for them. The day will consist of looking at the full swing and short game in the morning then a light lunch. There after we will be heading out on to the course for a few holes. No equipment needed, just suitable clothing and footwear to be worn.
The event runs from 10:00am - 3:00pm and costs just £40 per person. Lunch is included too. Click here to get in touch for more details.
On Monday, 13 March and Wednesday, 15 March Dean has 12 slots available for putter fittings using the SAM Putt Lab. This is the most up to date technology in the world of putter analysis. If you are thinking of replacing the flat stick this year take up this offer and get fitted so you have a putter that suits your stroke and helps you hole more putts this coming season. A putter is NOT a one club fits all, make sure yours is right for you.

Custom Fitting Slots Available
With over 30 fittings carried out in February, we are well aware that a number of our members and clients are looking to upgrade their equipment before the start of the season. With all the latest equipment from PING, Callaway, Titleist, Mizuno, Cobra and Lynx now in, I just wanted to remind you of a couple of key points about our fittings:
- Fittings for all Girton members and AlanFletcherGolf pupils and clients are completely FREE.
- Club fitting is available from 7.30am through to 8.00pm (selected days).
- Club fitting is available at weekends.
- We need to use your equipment as a baseline to see if there is any need for you to upgrade.
Fitting doesn't just mean the type of iron, it means the correct:
Shaft flex and weight.
Grip type and size.
Set make up.
It is not always about getting nice shiny new clubs, but more about setting your golf bag up in such a way that you know your yardages, can repeat those distances, have confidence in your equipment and enjoy and pay better golf. To book a fitting for irons, woods or wedges (Or even putter) call us today or click here to send us an email.
