Both Rob and Sam will also be on hand to offer custom fitting either here at CMGC or at Stone driving range in their state of the art swing studio. Stone driving range is exactly one hour from CMGC and a very impressive set up, the swing studio alone cost £25,000 to put in. They are committed to offering the best custom fitting experience around and the CMGC members that have already been up there have loved it. The main difference with Rob and Sam is that they care about the golfer and getting the right clubs to suit them. Compare this to some highstreet stores and other places where the professional on hand are inspired by commissions and giving you product they want you to have rather than what suits you.
Rob and Sam offer FREE fittings to CMGC members and have all of the top brands in stocks including PING, Taylor Made, Cobra and many more. However if you do not want to travel they can still fit you here onsite at CMGC.
A message from Rob ‘I am delighted to be joining Cleobury and I feel it is very important myself and Sam meet as many of you as possible. The lesson promotion is giving a little something back to the membership and we cannot wait to get started and get you all playing better golf. Cleobury is a fantastic set up with the 27 holes and lodges onsite making it always a busy and vibrant place. We firmly believe there is massive potential to grow the coaching locally and make Cleobury the one stop destination for coaching, custom fitting and of course golf’.
