Pros news 

We have now upgraded the furniture inside the clubhouse, so come in for a coffee and relax after your game or just read the newspaper instead.


This week young Tom Atkinson had another great end to the season shooting a magnificent 77 at Gog Magog Golf Club, Cambridgeshire. Not bad for an 11-year-old! The course was playing 6300 yards and was a par 72. I was lucky to be out on the course and watch all our hard work come together and his season come to a good end. Tom now plays off a 10 handicap at Chigwell GC, but I must also mention three other young players that I am lucky to be coaching. Trey has a 20 handicap at Bishop Stortford GC, Connor is off 13 at West Essex GC and our new recruit to team HB, Harry. Watch this space for more news on all these players next season.

Top tips for better ball striking 

Take a look at the image below, it's this kind of backswing position that we see quite a lot of - and it's unlikely to lead to a clean strike. In fact, there are three common faults we see in this particular area. 

Firstly, spine angle. The best ball strikers all set and maintain a good posture during the swing. During lessons we like to work on getting you to avoid lifting or dipping in the backswing or downswing. What you need to try and do is turn around a constant spine angle, which will deliver more consistent results. 

Now, reference to this image, you'll notice how this golfer has swayed back. You do need to shift your weight during the swing, but this kind of movement will lead to fat and thin strikes. Keep your sternum over the ball at impact for better strikes.

Finally, one of the most common faults in the swing is when players come 'over the top'. With the club attacking the ball from outside the ball-to-target line you'll hit a slice or pull with your driver and strike it inconsistently with your irons. 

Come and see the team if you're stuck with one of these faults, we'll be happy to help. Get in touch here
