Over the last few seasons, lithium batteries have become the norm when purchasing a new electric trolley. Despite being more expensive than the older lead acid types, most golfers have become sold on the benefits of the lithium battery.
The main benefits are:
Lighter weight (typically 2.5kgs as opposed to 7kgs).
Smaller (allowing for trollies to fold up smaller and easier).
Lasting up to 5 times longer
More environmentally friendly.
The good news is, a change of trolley may not be required. Depending on the model and age of your trolley, it may be possible to buy a lithium battery that will be compatible.
If you are thinking of getting your first electric trolley, or upgrading your existing one, Motocaddy are offering a free bag with every purchase from their lithium trolley range. Pop in and let us show you the complete Motocaddy range.
The FREE bag offer is available until 31st December, terms and conditions apply.
Pro-Shop News - November 2019.
Introducing the Stroke Lab putter from Odyssey. The range incorporates a unique new method of weight distribution designed to improve the physical dynamics of the stroke.
Most golfers' putting strokes are inconsistent. Yet most putting technologies focus on improving alignment or improving the quality of roll. They attempt to mask a given stroke's weaknesses instead of improving those weaknesses. Odyssey's new Stroke Lab putter line helps improve the stroke through a profound change in weight distribution made possible by an innovative new shaft. This is a completely new approach to putter weighting, and only Odyssey has it.
The Stroke Lab shaft is a full 40 grams lighter, made possible by an innovative new multi-material shaft design that combines a graphite body with a steel tip to net out at just 75g, with most of the mass concentrated in the tip. They've redistributed that saved weight by adding 10g to the head in the form of two sole weights, and adding 30g to the grip-end via a 10g-lighter grip and 40g end-weight.
The effect of Stroke Lab's innovative weight distribution on the stroke is dramatic. Odyssey studies indicate improvements in the consistency of backswing time, face-angle at impact, ball speed, and ball direction. Feel for the putter head becomes more acute, helping the golfer repeat the same, smooth stroke time after time.
Stroke Lab putters are targeted at any golfer who wants to putt better (that's everyone).
The Stroke Lab line up consists of 10 great shapes -- six mallets and four blades - all with our newest White Hot Micro-hinge insert for smooth roll and great feel, in a choice of pistol grip or oversize grip. Several of them are featured in the photo here.

Pro Shop News - October 2019
With Winter now officially here, many of you will have noticed your winter stock arriving in store over the last couple of weeks.
Nobody wants to pack up their clubs for the winter, but having the right equipment and clothing will make it easier, and more pleasurable to keep playing over the next few months.
With brands such as Galvin Green, Sunderland, Callaway, Titleist and Glenmuir, we have a great range for you to choose from, whether you require thermal warmth, protection from the wind, lightweight showerproof tops, or full on guaranteed waterproof suits.
Unlike clothes worn on the high street, golf winter wear is specifically designed to play in. Often the materials used are lightweight, stretchy and breathable with moisture wicking properties to keep the golfer warm but also dry. The cut of the garments is also designed to maximize freedom of movement.
Don’t forget headwear, rain or winter gloves and mitts, or even snoods. Bobble hats are also making a comeback!!!
