Home team wins top prize at The Audio Room Pro-Am as event is a huge success!

We couldn’t have asked for better weather for the Audio Room Pro-Am on Friday 24th May - bright blue skies, not too much of a breeze and a temperature that meant many legs were out in force on the day!

With a field of 33 teams - the most we have ever had at the club - it was a very busy day on the golf course, and the numerous kind comments about the golf course and hospitality meant that our team had done a fantastic job of preparing for the day.

The halfway house which was sponsored by GRT7V Promotions providing an array of homemade sandwiches, sausage rolls, quiche, flapjack and lemon sponge served with complimentary beer, wine or soft drinks, kept the golfers fueled after nine holes to keep the scoring going.

The winning team of Carl Cunningham, Chris Farr, Warren Peers and professional Alex Belt scored a fantastic 20 under par to win the event, a great score on a challenging and quick golf course!

Professional scoring was impressive with 9 of the 33 professionals shooting under par for the day, but none threatened Alex Belt’s course record score of 62. Gareth Traynor took the top prize of £1,000 with his 66, with John Wells, James Drinkall and Robert Booth in tow for tied 2nd on 67.

Home professional Matt Daley was disappointed with his 1-under 69 after a bogey-bogey start and bogey-bogey finish but finished a very respectable tied 5th in his first event at Burstwick as the Head Professional.

Thank you to Darren Bamford of The Audio Room for sponsoring the whole event, and to all the associate, prize and tee sponsors which helped us along the way, and most of all thank you to the 132 players who participated in this fantastic event!

There are a few spaces left for The Audio Room Pro-Am!

Our flagship event of the year, the annual Pro-Am sponsored by The Audio Room in Hull, is due to take place on Friday 24th May and is filling up nicely with teams from around the region.

Professionals will be competing for a fantastic £1,000 first prize, one of the highest in the region, but it’s not just about rewarding the professionals. Amateur teams will be competing for a prize table worth over £2,500, with the first team prize being worth over £800! Not bad for a day out on the golf course, eh?

There are still a handful of spaces left for the event so if you would like to be part of one of Burstwick’s biggest events drop us an email now .

Teams consist of three amateurs and a professional (who we can allocate for you, if required) and the day includes refreshments at various parts of the course including a fully stocked halfway house, and a two course meal afterwards.

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

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.

Welcome Matt Daley to the team at Burstwick!

We are proud to announce that Matt Daley is the new PGA Professional at Burstwick, starting Monday 22nd October 2018!

Matt has very high ambitions for the club and wants to hit the ground running with a complete makeover of the teaching studio. In the coming weeks Matt will be adding many premium pieces of technology to the studio including a launch monitor, an indoor golf simulator and state of the art high speed cameras to create the “Ultimate Golf Experience” at Burstwick.

Matt has a wealth of experience in both teaching and playing at elite levels, and has seen many successes in his career including winning several amateur and professional championships around the country. Matt has also played on the PGA Europro Tour and European Challenge Tour alongside some of Europe’s most talented players, and is very well respected among his peers.

James Bisby is hosting some events to get more involved

Head PGA Professional James Bisby has lots of great events planned for the upcoming months, aimed at getting more people playing better golf!

James’ Golf Academy now has all the tools (GASP video analysis and Flightscope launch monitor technology) to ensure that his clients receive the absolute best in coaching and custom fitting, and he is keen to create a calendar of events that will help get more people involved and show just how beneficial he can be for your golf, but also have fun at the same time!

Speaking of fun, James is hosting a ‘Closest the Pin’ competition on Thursday, August 31 from 6:30pm where anyone can come to the range and have a go. The Pin will be exactly 125 yards away so most golfers will have a chance of winning!

It costs just £2 for 5 shots and players can have as many goes as they want to pay for. The winner will receive a box of Pro V1 balls worth £42.

Other upcoming events will include a free members’ coaching day on September 30, and a discount coaching week in November for both members and visitors. There are also plans to greatly increase lady and junior participation in the coming months!

Flightscope Xi Tour is the latest edition to the James Bisby Golf Academy

Our head professional James Bisby is always improving his teaching academy in many ways, from investing in his own professional development, and also buying the latest technology to take his coaching to new levels.

For a while it has been on James’ radar that the next big step for him would be to invest in launch monitor technology, but these things don’t come cheap so it’s been a long time in the planning.

James did his research across the market and in the end made the decision to go with the Flightscope Xi Tour, which is one of the leading launch monitors both on the PGA and European Tours and among PGA Professionals worldwide.

For those who don’t know what a Flightscope does, in simplest terms it gathers critical data from golf shots to help players get the best from their game. Flightscope uses Doppler Radar technology (the same as used by the military) to track each golf shot and derive data such as: club head speed, ball speed, launch angle, spin rate, club path, smash factor, and many other attributes. These tools allow James to enhance his teaching and make more specific recommendations to his clients, as it unlocks a world of information about their golf swing.

Other great benefits of the Flightscope Xi Tour include club fitting and finding your distances of your full golf bag. Being custom fitted for clubs is crucial for getting the best results from your purchase, and by using Flightscope you can try various different clubs and James can analyse the data to make sure you the club you select optimises your ball flight because it is in tune with your golf swing.

If you would like to book a lesson, club fit or find your distances, contact James on 07896 257878 or email james.bisby@burstwick.golf.

Alex Belt sets new Course Record at Burstwick in The Audio Room Pro-Am

Last Friday saw our most high profile event of the year held at Burstwick, the annual Pro-Am sponsored by The Audio Room.

For those who are unfamiliar with the format of a Pro-Am, teams enter the competition which consist of one PGA Professional and three amateur golfers. The four play as a team in Am-Am format (best two scores from four on each hole) while the Pro also has their own individual score marked for a separate leaderboard.

Our Pro-Am is one of the best value events in the area, with a total prize value of over £5,000 split between professionals and amateurs, while entry is just £195 per team. Not only is the prize table worth a huge amount, but we put on a great day for all guests with a free halfway house which includes a boat load of food, soft drinks and beers, we also throw in four nearest pin prizes as well as a straightest drive. As we pride ourselves as a restaurant that produces high quality food, the included two course meal of chicken with white wine sauce followed by a home-made cheesecake went down very well too!

Now on to the scores. Last year just one under par won the top professional prize, but Alex Belt was having none of that in 2017. As a past winner on the EuroPro Tour, I know that Alex has a huge talent worthy of reducing any golf course to it’s knees, and as such he has held the professional course record at Burstwick since 2008 when he shot 64 (six under par).

This year he decided that 64 wasn’t good enough and beat that score by another two shots! 62 was enough to take the top spot by an amazing five shots. Astonishing.

Burstwick’s very own Joe Coyle followed behind with a very solid 67, alongside Cottingham’s Alex Boyton, to take joint second place, a great performance from Joe who definitely has much more left in the tank.

Leading the teams was Alex’s team “Belt’s Boys”, followed by Cobie Atkin’s team from Hainsworth Park, and in third, fourth and fifth positions were teams from Burstwick, with professionals James Drinkall, Rob Caldebank and Danny Wilkes respectively.

A huge thank you goes out from myself to Darren Bamford of The Audio Room (pictured above with Aran Wainwright of the YPGA and winner Alex Belt), and all of the sponsors who helped make the day possible. Not forgetting my volunteer for the halfway house Paul Collins, and all of the 25 teams who supported the event!
