Pro’s Charity and Summer Coaching Opportunities

//Pro’s Charity and Summer Coaching Opportunities


The Pro’s Charity Day will be taking place on Saturday 20th August. Charlie has been making plans for this event since January and it will be a fun filled day without doubt. The format is a 4 player Texas Scamble and there will be an amazing selection of prizes for the top 8 teams as well as nearest the pin prizes, hole in one prize on the 17th, longest drive prize and best dressed team prize.
Just like Captain’s Day recently there will be an AM shotgun start at 8.30am and a PM shotgun start at 2.30pm. The highlight of the day will be a performance by Paul Barrington World Trickshot champion on the 1st tee at 1.30pm. His show is incredible and hilarious and not to be missed. The cost of entry is £40 per player. BBQ is included in the price plus one entry into the TaylorMade Stealth Driver Draw. In the evening after play there will be a presentation and an auction then we will will turn up the music and get the party started.

The Pro’s Charity Day is new and unknown at Ogbourne but Charlie is asking for your support as all proceeds go towards The Brain Tumor Charity, a cause that means a lot to him personally.

If you would like to enter please call in at the pro shop or email Charlie at

Summer Coaching Opportunities

4 week short game course

The truth about greens in regulation. The following statistics show the average number of greens in regulation in rounds played to handicap.

25-29 handicap = 3 greens
20-24 handicap = 3.5 greens
15-19 handicap = 5.1 greens
10-14 handicap = 6.9 greens
6-9 handicap = 8.5 greens
3-5 handicap = 10.2 greens
0-2 handicap = 11.8 greens
+1-+3 handicap = 12.6 greens

These numbers make for interesting reading. One, it shows the importance of hitting greens but it also shows the importance of developing a short game that can come to your rescue when we inevitably miss greens.

If you would like to learn more about the short game and develop some new skills around the greens Charlie has a great opportunity for you. He will be delivering a 4 week short game course in August. In the 4 sessions he will cover everything short game from shot selection to trajectory control. By the end of the 4 weeks you will be better equipped to turn three shots into two. The dates of the 4 sessions are as follows. There is room for 8 participants each week. The cost is £60 for all 4 sessions or £15 for per session if you can’t commit to all 4.

Friday night coaching roll up

Starting from Friday 12th August there will be a coaching roll up every week 4pm-5pm. This is a relaxed coaching session where you have the opportunity to get a small amount of Charlie’s time to ask questions or make some tweaks to your technique. This is ideal for those that feel they don’t need a full 45 minute lesson and would just like a small adjustment, a 2nd opinion or some advice. The cost is £8 per session. Everyone is welcome. If you would like to attend please get in touch at least 24 hours before each session.
