  • Juliette Armand – Multi Vit B serum

      Juliette Armand – Multi Vit B serum No introduction necessary here! Regular readers will know how highly I rate this brand, and this serum in particular has become a ‘can’t-live-without-it’ in my skincare regime. I am almost finished my second bottle and honestly, I can’t see myself ever being without it. This serum is comprised of vitamins B5 and B6, both of which contain anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant properties – I spent a lot of time in two quite extreme climates while in the States – the desert (Coachella, Joshua Tree and Vegas), and then the snowy mountains (Yosemite National Park and…

  • Golf Maintenance update.

    This week there will be no change to the greens cutting height for the week ahead, but we’ll be fertilising with Foliar feed on Tuesday. All the approaches will still be cut at 11mm, with literally no growth due to the low temperatures these areas will only be cut once a week. The tees are maintained at 8mm while the semi rough will be cut at 30mm. (If you read John Dickson’s blog you’ll see just how to stay out of the rough!!) Daily maintenance will continue in the bunkers, raking, edging and flymowing will be the order of the…

  • Hitting out of the rough – John Dickson

    Hitting out of the Rough In winter as the fairways are running more than usual we can find ourselves more in the short rough than normal. When playing out of a rough lie one should take a couple of things into account. Take a shorter club than you would from the fairway as you will normally catch a flyer from the rough. Secondly is to try and make a more relaxed swing as all you want to do is make good contact. The ball will fly higher and further and also have less spin than from the fairway.   John…

  • Tips for Dad

    5 Tips for Dad: 1.       CTM IS ESSENTIAL: Like women, the CTM routine (cleansing, toning and moisturising) is just as important for men. They are exposed to pollution, car exhaust, cigarette smoke and other pollutants on a daily basis, which damage the skin. Also, men tend to have oilier and thicker skin than women. 2.       EXFOLIATE DAILY: Removing dead cells from the skin's surface leaves the face radiant and healthy. Once a week, one should use a gentle but granulated face scrub to help smoothen the skin and eliminate dullness. Another advantage of exfoliating the face is that it softens…

The approaches are…

  • Weekly golf tip – John Dickson

    Putting warm up routine When one gets to the putting green before a game. Hit ten to fifteen long putts first to get the feel of the green. Feel is more important than line. Most three putts come from bad speed control. Once you have a feel for the speed of the green then go straight to hit a few two to three foot putts. The hole will seem a little bigger and you will also now hit more positive short puts after making the bigger stoke for the first longer puts you have already hit. Now when venturing onto…
