To Ireland by Sea – Part 3

Apr 25th, 2019

It was an early alarm for the final day of the Stena Line Media Masters 2019. As we stumbled down to another fine breakfast at the Druids Glen Hotel thoughts turned to the eight singles matches which were to take place at Powerscourt Golf Club. I had heard great reports of the courses at Powerscourt and so was looking forward to another great test of golf. I was not to be disappointed.

You Little Beauty: Tandridge G.C.

Oct 1st, 2019

The 6:57 to East Grinstead trundles out of Clapham Junction. I’m on board with my Café Nero’s black americano in hand (other coffee brands were available) and a copy of City AM on the table in front of me. Today’s mission, to seek out a gem of a course that I have known about for years but never played. The course in question is Tandridge Golf Club and I have heard good reports about the course and, in particular, the famous lunch – more of that later!

Cleveland have been on a bit of a role when it comes to launching wrenches recently.  Their CBX 2 wedges kicked it off, followed by their amazing Frontline Putters and the Huntington Beach range.  Now, two years on from their return to the woods and irons market they are releasing the Launcher HB Turbo woods which they say are “sleeker, faster, and more forgiving” which is exactly what you want!

Cleveland Frontline Range

Cleveland Frontline Range

Cleveland wedges are definitely always in the mix when you think about premium tour products and we loved their recent CBX 2 launch aimed at the slightly more regular golfers amongst us.  What they aren’t as well known for are their top of the line putters and perhaps, with the new Frontline range, that is about to change?

Cleveland CBX 2 Wedge

Cleveland CBX 2 Wedge

Aug 19th, 2019

We often read about how a club has been designed for the tour players and is now being released to us mere mortals and, to be honest, it sells a great idea that by adding said stick to our bag will result in us playing like Brooks, Tiger or Rory.  Sadly, in real life this is rarely the case so the idea that Cleveland have launched their CBX2 wedges with the majority of golfers in mind is a refreshing change of pace.
