Brand new Ping G410 range launched

Today Ping have launched their brand new G410 range which replaces the outgoing G400. The new G410 range features the Ping G410 Plus, Ping’s first ever driver to feature moveable weight, specifically a 16g tungsten weight that can be relocated at the back of the clubhead to add 10 yards of draw or fade bias while maintaining forgiveness.

In 2019 Burstwick have now strived to become advanced Ping Fitters, with demo clubs in the range including drivers, fairways, hybrids and irons, so you can book in for a free custom fit session with our PGA Professional Matt Daley for the full range of G410 clubs!

Matt Daley’s Am-Am filling up already

This April we will be hosting the first annual fundraising Am-Am for our new professional Matt Daley. It is the first event of it’s kind to be held at Burstwick, and it follows on from when Matt held the same event when he was at Hainsworth Park Golf Club.

The Am-Am is open to all players at any club as long as they have a valid handicap and entry costs just £20 per person, including a bacon roll and coffee!

Matt’s Am-Ams previously were extremely successful and it looks like this one will be just as popular as we already have over 20 teams booked for the day.

If you would like to take part in this event go online to www.opens.burstwick.golf and book your team in now!

Get your team into the Spring Fundraising Open Am-Am now!

On Saturday 2nd March 2019 we are hosting our Spring Open Am-Am which will be raising funds for course furniture, such as new benches, bins, ball washers and more. Anyone can enter as long as they are a member at any golf club and have a valid CONGU handicap.

Entry costs just £80 per team and our prizes are very generous considering it is a fundraising event.

The format is an Am-Am Stableford with the best two nett scores to count from the team on each hole, and teams are allowed 3/4 handicap allowance. Tee times are available from 8am to 1pm but generally book up very quickly so make sure to get your team in soon.

To put your team in the event please book online here or call us on 01964 670112.

Thank you to the members from Matt Daley

It’s been nearly three months since I joined the team at Burstwick, and it has flown by!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the members at the club who have made me feel very welcome, and already part of the family at Burstwick.

The reception I have received since October has been humbling and I know that I haven’t quite met everyone yet, but I’m sure I will get to know you all at some point soon, it’s just that I have been putting every ounce of effort into the studio to make sure it was completed as soon as possible.

Many of you will be aware that when I joined the club my aim was to create the best teaching facility in the whole of the East Riding area, with the best technology, knowledge and expertise, and I see this as a fantastic facility for the members of Burstwick, whether it be for lessons or for hiring with friends to play on the virtual golf simulator.

The studio is now complete and I would love all of the members to come and have a look so if you see me in the clubhouse don’t hesitate to grab me and I will gladly show you around.

Also I would just like to say a big thank you to Alan and family for their support and patience throughout, you have all made me feel so welcome and have been a massive help in my start at the club.

So a huge thank you to all members, staff and family of Burstwick Country Golf. It means a lot!

Regards
Matt Daley

Rules Changes 2019

A sneak peak into Matt Daley's new Studio!

This week Matt Daley’s new Trackman Golf Studio is now open and ready for use after a full refurbishment. There isn’t much that Matt hasn’t changed: flooring, walls, colour scheme, launch monitor, computer and four monitors, putting matt, couch and more!

The place has a brand new feel and is much cleaner than the previous design, providing the best teaching and practice facility in the area with market-leading Trackman technology - the same that is used on the PGA Tour.

The indoor simulator will be up and running this weekend and ready for golfers to hire for £25 per hour. This includes the ability to play 30 golf courses (including St. Andrews Old Course and Royal Troon), run Nearest the Pin competitions, play some Target Golf or just hone in your numbers and practice your swing by yourself.

Matt has already been teaching an impressive number of lessons without the studio being in action, so he is very excited to get going in teaching golfers from all around the area in the facility from this week.

If you would like to have a look at the new studio Matt would be very happy to give you a free tour and demonstration of everything that can be done to help improve your game and also enjoy your golf in a warm, cosy environment, which is perfect for these cold and wintry days we are having lately.

Give Matt a call on 07706 285296, email matt.daley@burstwick.golf or pop in and see him!


NEW RULES from 1st January 2019 - Everything you need to know

The new Rules of Golf from the R&A and USGA come into force from 1st January 2019 and it is important that golfers know about the changes if they are going to be playing competitively.

This helpful video below gives you a fantastic overview of the 20 biggest changes in the rules, which will be the most commonly occurring in your game. Make sure you give this video a watch before the 1st of January if you are unsure of any of the new rules.

Rules not being adopted by Burstwick

Some of the new rules include the options for local rules to be enforced by the Committee at each club, and currently the Committee has no plans to enforce any of these, this includes and alternative penalty procedure for an out of bounds or lost ball; we will remain with the traditional method of going back to where the shot was last played from under a one stroke penalty.

If you have any questions on the new rules please don’t hesitate to speak to either Alan or Matt at the club for any help or clarification.

Matt's Daley's teaching studio shaping up nicely

Matt Daley’s quest to have the best teaching facility in the whole of the East Riding is coming along very nicely indeed.

This week Matt has had a plasterer to give the room a full board out and skim give the studio a brand new feel. As well as new walls, Matt has purchased new nets including a white screen for use with the Trackman indoor simulator when you decide you want to play with your friend at St. Andrews Old Links, or one of 30 other golf courses.

Trackman boasts the most up-to-date features and technology in ball and club tracking, and differs from the rest of the market by being able to thoroughly analyse chipping and putting too.

The addition of two wall mounted 43” TVs, two cameras and various other premium teaching aids, there will be no other studio in the area that offers the same level of equipment or experience.

Matt hopes the room will be ready within the next week and we can’t wait for people to come and give it a try! If you’re coming to the driving range any time soon please feel free to pop your head in and have a look at the new facility.

Last week we held our annual Ladies Xmas Open Am-Am and Mother Nature blessed us with a more than acceptable day for golf, which remained dry and not too cold. We had a full compliment of teams in the 10:30am shotgun start, and scoring was quite tough on the day with only the top three teams shooting under par scores.

Congratulations to the winning team consisting of our Lady Captain Sarah Leonard, Cathy Greenwood, Chris Wicks and Ann Roberts, with a score of 74 pts, winning on the back nine.

Thank you to all that attended the event, we hope to see you all again next year!

There is a £200 team prize to be won for the league winners and £100 for second place, as well as an individual prize for the best score on each night!

Teams consist of four players and each target golf night includes balls. Each player will have a set number of attempts at each of the targets set out on the range, and then tackle the Pro’s Challenge hosted by Matt Daley!

As part of the challenge we are going to include handicap shots which are added on to a score at the end, so everyone has a fair chance of winning the league.

Teams will be allowed one substitute per week so don't worry if you think that 6 weeks commitment might be a problem, just tell a friend to take your place.
