BEN STOKES


visited the range recently, seen here with range owner Chris Pope - to try out some new clubs.


It was very interesting to see that he hits a golf ball nearly as far as a cricket ball!

A Great Comment from One of Our Members about Sunderland Golf Centre


''At my place 83p for 25 or 50 during happy hour, which is 9.00 to 11.00 weekdays & 5.00 to 6.00 weekends, provided you top up your card with 1,500 balls for £50. Decent quality balls & great mats. Happy hour is like a retirees' social club. Go there, hit a few balls, have a coffee & a chat.

I can spend most of the morning there. It's attached to an American Golf, but run separately, so I can browse the stock while I'm there too.

I'm there most mornings if I'm not playing.''

PGA Qualified Golf Professional

PGA Qualified Golf Professional Gary Shipley was the Head Coach at George Washington Golf Club for 9 years until 2018 and has now moved on to progress his coaching.

Gary coaches all levels of players in all aspects of the game from psychology, to method,

from nutrition to course management.


In his early career his reputation as a golf coach spread quickly and as such he gained extensive coaching skills through coaching golfers from beginners to professionals as well as County Teams

in Surrey, Berkshire, Essex and Kent.


Here, in the North East, Gary was instrumental in developing the Golf Academy at Gateshead College and has also worked with England Golf , Universities, Colleges and schools to develop

all levels of players.


“I still get a huge amount of satisfaction when a player comes back after a lesson and says that he or she has improved and that they are now enjoying playing golf again.”


He is still motivated to continually learn and improve his own personal performance and

knowledge in order to improve the playing ability of all his clients.

PRICE CHANGES


We are sorry to have to announce a price rise, but this is the first one since July 2014. In that time we have had to absorb many cost increases but cannot do that any longer. With the mat and ball quality we offer we hope you will still see this represents good value. As members you will have an opportunity to top up cards before the increases which will start on Monday 7 October.
