Event News – July 2012
Stowmarket Golf Club started a hectic July for the KC Golf Show, and despite all the rain I have been fortunate enough to perform most of my shows inbetween the heavy showers.
To celebrate the clubs 50th Anniversary, A beautiful summers evening saw a large crowd turn up to watch the show, and I have to admit one of my favourite gigs this summer.
It’ s always nice when you hit the ball particulary well, however it was the warm and friendly feedback from a famiily orientated audience that made the evening very enjoyable.
Young Jude Everitt stole the show with the biggest cheer of the night when he nailed the moving ball from out of the pipe.
A large crowd starting to gather round the 1st tee at Stowmarket ready to watch the KC Golf Show in action .
The Graham Napier Benefit Fund and the Lighthouse Golf Society were next up for the KC Golf Show at my home club Hintlesham, before a trip down the road to Seckford Golf Club.
Seckford hosted the Achillies Football Club Golf Day, and what a vocal bunch they turned out to be.After a few too many beers a small section of the crowd tried their best to put me off during the opening shots of the routine which backfired big time when they were made to look, average at best when invited to help me out with a couple shots!
Unfortunately the rain played its part on Friday 13th at The Shire, London for the Miles Smith Golf Day!The soggy conditions at the Shire in which I just about managed to stay upright for the unicycle tricks!
After months of hard work and preparation the GOLF EAST SHOW was finally upon us. The first ever East Anglian Golf Show took place on the 14th and 15th July at Trinty Park – Ipswich.
The KC Golf Show was a popular choice as hundreds of golf fans enjoyed each of the three shows over the weekend. Unfortunately heavy rain throughout Friday evening and well into the early hours Saturday morning kept the attendance down Saturday, however the bright sunshine on Sunday sure made up for everyone involved, none more so than organisers Sarah Wilson and Susan Moore, who both should be extremely proud of putting on a great event for all the family.
As well as bringing the KC Golf Show to the event it was also the perfect opportunity for me to promote my home Club Hintlesham, and the Junior programmes that I’m running throughout the school summer holidays. (details available on my Tuition page)
A few days later, the KC Golf Show was on its way to Silverstone, unfortunately not to experience the excitement of the Formula 1 circuit, but it’s next door neighbour and host to the Northants Cricket Club Golf Day Whittlebury Park.
The team had a lot of fun watching the show, with many demonstrating great hand eye co-ordination skills when volunteered to take part.
The volume button on the PA system was cranked up to be heard over the impressive sound of race cars ripping it round Silverstone, which quite literally backs on to the driving range.
Saturday 21st July, and Horsham Golf & Fitness was the venue for my next show. The event organised by JOLF co-owner Neil Plimmer. (pictured below)
JOLF is an exciting new golf programme helping juniors achieve a much broader range of skills, attitudes, and knowledge, which I believe in time will prove to be a popular choice for everyone concerened in Junior coaching.
Many Mums & Dads joined their Jolfers in a fun, relaxed afternoon in which saw all of the kids take part at some stage during the show. Always a popular choice amongst the juniors, I had a queue waiting their turn to attempt to strike the moving ball from the 20 ft pipe.
Performing at the Jolf Open Day could’nt have come at a better time, as on Monday 23rd July the KC Golf Show will be heading to Woburn Golf Club to entertain the kids invited to play in the IJP Junior Invitatitional.This entry was posted in The Show. Bookmark the permalink.
