Greetings from Alan Fletcher
Girton Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

If you think we have had bad weather, then did you see the golf in Florida last weekend? Monsoons and torrential rain (ok its similar to us) meant the tournament went in to Monday, but what an event, with the last three holes known as the 'bear trap' proving to catch out the players all week.

We are in March now and that only means one thing... winter is on the way out and spring is on the way in! I know I like to give the positive vibe but I can sense at least that the trees and grass want to grow!

The good news about March is that it is one month closer to one of the best golf tournaments of the year, The Masters! I think with all the young talent around on tour at the moment we could be in for an exctiting first major of the season, witha number of players looking to win come Sunday night.

For us though, March is proving to be a busy month with the season revving up, tournaments at the club now open for entry, custom fitting days and events are available, new coaching programs for ladies and gents start to take full effect and plenty for our members, pupils and customers to get excited about. Being part of Girton and the coaching team in 2015 could be our best yet!

As you may know I was fortunate to be asked to head up to County boys program this season. After a restructure, we now have 77 junior boys in our programs from development to elite.

Last weekend saw us run our first elite training camp at Lakeside Lodge with some top coaches running some great session. Gary Casey (Thorpe Wood), Jason Boast (Cowley Road), Mark Norton (Northants County) and Paul Ashwell (St Ives and England) were on hand with myself to help a group of talented young players and build some team spirit to make our program and county boys a force to be reckoned with this year, and with years to come.

For more information on county Boys or girls programs please feel free to contact me by clicking here.

After the successful entrance last year, we now have dates available for the first few matches of 2015 for the Pro Challenge. The events are in the gents locker room, (ladies don't worry) this is also open to you so please pop in and ask what dates are available.

If you would like to take on our professional staff then please find a partner and get involved. Losing pair will pay £5 each to my charity of the British Heart Foundation, as I look forward to raising more more money for a great cause this year.

The final day is already scheduled in the diary so please get your matches in early.

With 9 ladies' brands available on the day to try, we can help you with your equipment for 2015. Remember less is more and our advice may be as simple as organising the clubs you already have into something that is suitable.

Ryan's Review - Nike Lunar 3 or Rory's Shoe

Nike worked with Rory on designing this great looking shoe, which provides better traction, prevents slipping and gives the control needed to generate power and speed through the ball.

The shoe offers a great fit and is very comfortable.and also gives the feeling of being very stable throughout the swing.

These will definitely be what I go with for start of the playing season . You can also get them in white/red, white/grey, white/green and black/grey
