We have had such a fantastic and positive response to the new newsletter and website which we launched last week. We are pleased that so many of you have either spoken to me and the team in the shop or sent me an email. That really is the aim of this weekly communication, to inform and to encourage more golfers to talk to us about their game and how they would like to improve. Have you set your aims for the year? If so let us help you achieve them and make 2014 a fantastic golfing year. Click here and tell us what you'd like to achieve be it more consistency, lower your handicap or just to beat your golfing partner.
For those of you that might have missed our email last week, We'd like to tell you a little more about my new email and website. We have spent a lot of time putting together this website. You will find videos on the latest golf equipment, instructional tips and videos, contact forms to keep in touch and information on the promotions that we have running in my shop. But we also want to feature you! So if you have any news be it a hole in one, birth of a son or granddaughter, a testimonial on how great your new driver or electric trolley is we want to know and we will be delighted to feature you in our site.
Alan Completes 8th Charity Challenge of the Year - London Triathlon
Well it's been 8 long months but I am now looking at the last third of my "Year for Charity". On Saturday I completed the London Triathlon at the Excel Centre. After a tough 750m swim, 20km bike ride and 5km run, I finished with a time of 1 hour 48 minutes. It was for sure one of the toughest challenges so far yet it is the one thing I would want to do again.
The countdown is now towards New York Marathon, with two half Marathons in September and October. So far the total raised is at £2325 so nearly half way to my target of £5000, all for the British Heart foundation. A big thank you to all those who have sponsored, and if you would like to sponsor you either go online to https://www.justgiving.com/Alan-Fletcher4/ or you can write a cheque to the British Heart Foundation and drop it into the Pro Shop.
