Thank you all once again for your fantastic support over half term.
Summer holidays are just around the corner and we would like to share our extensive golf activities program with you.
Our camps which include a new “Golf and Footgolf Camp” will run throughout the duration of the school holidays.
There is also lots of opportunity to gain on the course experience with our “9 Hole” or “18 Hole camps.” For children who break up from school early please get in touch and we will be delighted to arrange something that works best for you.
This summer we are really keen to see more teenagers back playing golf so we have organised a camp for more them and the more experienced golfers.
There are also many other activities throughout the Berks, Bucks and Oxon area for both boys and girls. The Wexham Juniors are once again flourishing in these events and helping maintain our position as a leading centre for junior golf. We can also introduce your child to the many junior members who will be playing regularly throughout the summer as we strive to get more youngsters playing on the golf course.
Here is what we have planned, to book simply contact either Dan or I by email, phone or text.

SPEITH EXITS CHAMBER OF HORRORS TO SET UP POTENTIAL GRAND SLAM

JS US Open

Have you ever seen a course like that? The USGA took the US Open to Seattle for the first time to the scenic Chambers Bay course.Best described as playing on the moon, the links came in for fierce criticism from the players and in particular golfing legend, Gary Player.Player had some valid points describing the walking distance of nearly 10 miles, with the likelihood of the average player being unable to break 100 as no way to make the game fun and encourage more golfers to our sport.

Hat’s off to the players for at least making the event a great championship.Tiger’s golf has gone from bad to worse and missed the cut by a country mile. Jason Day somehow defied his “vertigo” problem to have a share of the lead entering the final round. It was awful to watch him struggle and his challenge duly faded on Sunday.

Coming down the stretch Rory finally found some form but came unstuck on the 15th and you will have to ask Louis Oosthuizen how he shot 29 on the back 9 on those greens!

However Jordan Speith continues to make the game easy and remained calm throughout. At 21 he possesses a calmness beyond his years, a great lesson for us all. His consistency and a final hole 3 putt from closest challenger Dustin Johnson saw him win back to back majors and set up a chance of a Grand Slam. The Home of Golf, St Andrews, and Whistling Straits await, two more “links” courses which will surely be in better condition than Chambers Bay.

Good luck to you Jordan.

GROWING THE GAME AT THE BMW PGA CHAMPIONSHIPS AND THE NIKE FUTURES TOUR

What a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend for golf. Record crowds flocked to Wentworth to see the best players in action. I hoped I could get my boys and introduction to Luke Donald and Luke was brilliant signing their hats and stopping for a photo with his bag.

Capture

It was the first time I had visited Wentworth in over 10 years and I was seriously impressed with how much the tournament has evolved. The testament was that the kids spent most of the time enjoying themselves in the tented villages playing various chipping,bunker and putting challenges. The challenge for golf is can they expand on these sort of activities and bring in a wider audience? Golf needs to change and the game should be all about fun and introducing a shorter format of the game to reduce the time it takes to play a round.

Maybe the answer to that question lies in a par 3 event? Today the Bucks Berks and Oxon County Golf Union hosted an under 11 Nike Futures Tour event at Wycombe Heights. 24 boys entered and the winning score was a gross 63 and I am very proud to say my Matthew won the nett prize with -7. I am extremely proud too of all our Wexham boys, Billy, Justin, Logan, Daniel and James who represented themselves and our juniors so well. Well played boys

STRATEGISTS GOLF SOCIETY SWINLEY EVENT DECIDED BY A THREE WAY COUNTBACK

Hi Everyone
We enjoyed another great day at the exclusive Swinley Forest Golf Club today.
We had an excellent turnout and were blessed by some fine dry weather.
In a keenly fought competition and a first ever for a 36 holes stableford whereby our top three were all tied with 66 points
David Williams beat Rob Toguri and Tony George on countback. Well done David.
Oliver Lazenby won the morning with 39 points and Mike Moore took the spoils in the afternoon with 37 points.
Thank you to everyone who played and I look forward to seeing you at our next event on June 4 at Tandridge Golf Club. Full details of the day will soon follow
Have a great weekend

Speith masterclass sees him win The Masters wire to wire and golf’s “new kid on the block” announces himself on the golfing stage

Jordan Speith Masters

Augusta National once again delivered another fantastic week’s golf and hopefully it will inspire the next generation. All the focus was on Rory Mcilroy beforehand and whether he could complete his Grand Slam, what emerged is he has a genuine rival in the modern game. Enter Jordan Speith who blew the field away in rounds 1 and 2 with a sublime 64 followed by a 66. Despite all the household names mounting a great challenge he remained calm and composed and completed his victory on Sunday evening to win the Green Jacket. We will all be practicing his putting routine where he watches the hole and not the ball on short putts, I would love to know what you think about it.

It was great to see Tiger, Phil, Justin and Rory all up there and it now promises to be an exciting season.

On a separate note it was fantastic to see so many youngsters attend out Easter Golf Camps. The weather was kind and hopefully Jordan Speith will inspire them all to greater things.

Have a great week

Masters week heralds the start of the golf season

US Masters

Augusta National in the spring is probably the most picturesque place on earth. Having enjoyed the most amazing experience in 2007 the Masters signals the start of the Majors and the catalyst for us all to get the clubs out again.

Who’s going to win? I can’t call that but would fancy Bubba Watson to go close again if his game is good as the course just so suits him. I would love to see Rory complete his own “Grand Slam” and I hope that Tiger has overcome his injuries and plays like he can.

So if the Masters inspires you to get out and play why not come and have a lesson and give golf a go. Wexham supports the Sport England initiative “GET INTO GOLF” where you can come and have some fun and enjoy the many challenges and health benefits that golf has to offer

Lessons are always available and I have a group class starting on Thursday May 12 6.30pm-7.30pm at just £29.99 for 5 weeks. Just email me to book in.

Mike also won longest drive with a 269 yard blow on the 15th and Ki Turner was closest to the pin on the 3rd hole. Congratulations to all the winners.
Our next event is always one that everyone looks forward to as we play the most exclusive of venues, Swinley Forest in Ascot.

Dan and I are also available to give individual lessons or lessons for small groups of children, this would be ideal for those children who attend private schools.
After such poor weather we are really keen to see everyone out playing on the course. I would like to propose we run a fun competition of 9 holes starting at 2pm on Tuesday April 8. Please let me know if this is something of interest, everyone is welcome and parents can play with their children.
Starting also in April, there is also a very active program available through the Bucks, Berks and Oxon Golf Union whereby the more experienced golfers can join in coaching and competitions.
It’s also membership renewal time and the  Wexham Park Junior Membership is held at the same price of £175, which is great value for money. This includes unlimited golf throughout the year and opportunity to gain an handicap and play in the club competitions. We also offer parent and child discount green fees on the green course. For full information visit www.wexhamparkgolfcentre.co.uk
We are all excited about the coming season
Have a great Easter
