Emily Price continues to shine for England
CMGC’s Emily Price continues to do the business for England! 4 wins from 4 matches. Brilliant performances from the Cleobury ace. Report below….
Emily played today for England U18’s Schools vs Wales at Conwy Golf Club in very windy and rainy weather. She played with Hannah Screen in their foursomes match and won 3&2. Then in her singles match she was 3 down by the 9th, but said to one of the England coaches on the 10th tee “I’ll turn this around now!” And then went on to win 2&1. England won 9.5 to 8.5, with Emily’s match securing the final point for the team win. So in her debut for England National and England Schools Teams she has won all her 4 matches.
This makes the last 4 months very successful as she is County Champion, Regional Champion, English Girls Open U15’s Champion and has won all her International Team matches.
Emily is pictured here with England coach Scott Godfrey

Re-grips will make old clubs feel like new. We have an extensive range at CMGC we offer 24 hour turn around the big seller at the moment is the new Lamkin UTX (as Matt shows) which has seen the likes of Rose, Poulter and Rose start using.

I can certainly vouch for these they are very tacky and feel great especially on wedges and woods.

New beers behind the bar!
We have recently cut a new deal with LWC of Hereford to have all of our alcohol from them. I am not a big drinker but have to admit a ice cold pint of Coors won’t go a miss after 18 holes. We are also contemplating getting BT Sport at CMGC for the football season. We love some feedback from you the members and friends, do you think it is worth it and would you come up and watch the matches? Just something we are considering to unit the membership? Please speak to myself or Graham next time you are at CMGC.
Following on from the success of the taster membership that we ran in April which saw 26 people retain membership after it had finished. The team at CMGC have decided to run another one going into the winter months.
For just £160 you can become a full member of Cleobury from September 1st until December 31st 2014. This should give you the golfer plenty of time to get into the club atmosphere and work out if it is the club for you.
Members will receive a swipe card which allows discount in the bar area, access to competitions, the chance to gain a handicap plus it is one of the very few golf courses that NEVER has temporary greens.
New members only, it does not allow you to play in the club championships.
Any additional questions please call or email email@example.com
Simply download the membership form below and bring to CMGC and we can get you signed up, alternatively simply pop into CMGC and the form can be filled in there and then.

Here is the match report from England V Switzerland - nice when you see CMGC’s Emily Price as the star performer on her debut!! Well done Emily… future LPGA tour player for sure!
England girls score ‘convincing’ win over Switzerland
England’s girls scored a convincing 7-2 win over Switzerland in their U16 international at Heswall Golf Club in Cheshire.
They played in difficult conditions of blustery winds and some rain which, coupled with the fast greens, set a tough challenge. But they coped well, particularly in the afternoon singles.
England coach Scott Godfrey commented: “For some of the girls this was the first time they’d played at this level and they enjoyed it, got on well as a team and produced a good result. It was a convincing win.”
The team led 2-1 after the morning foursomes, thanks to a turnaround in fortunes by Mollie Lawrence of Kent and Amelia Williamson of Norfolk. They were four down with eight to play but won on the last to give England the advantage. “We were looking at going into lunch down but they played the back nine very, very well and gave us a lead,” said Scott.
Natasha Slater went out first in the singles and kept the momentum going. The new Scottish U14 champion from Cumbria had a handful of birdies in the front nine and led by three at the turn, before winning 4/3. “She got us off to a great start,” said Scott.
English U15 champion Emily Price (Image © Leaderboard Photography) soon followed her in to the winner’s circle with a 7/6 success – despite losing the first hole! The Warwickshire player was under par for her match, producing an outstanding performance for the team.
Solid play brought wins for Amelia Williamson and Martha Lewis of Surrey. Meanwhile, Lancashire’s Louisa Brunt was trailing by one hole with four to play, but fashioned a strong finish, helped by a couple of birdies, to win on the last.
Martha Lewis (St George’s Hill) & Natasha Slater (Furness) lost to Aja Ruoss & Tiffany Arafi 6/5
Mollie Lawrence (Rochester & Cobham Park) & Amelia Williamson (Royal Cromer) beat Klara Wildhaber & Victoria Monod 1 up
Louisa Brunt (Royal Birkdale) & Emily Price (Cleobury Mortimer) beat Yael Berger & Charlotte Alran 2 up
Williamson beat Wildhaber 2/1
Slater beat Ruoss 4/3
Lewis beat Berger 2/1
Lawrence lost to Arafi 1 down
Price beat Monod 7/6
Brunt beat Alran 1 up
Many of you have already got your names down for the biggest tournament at CMGC and we will shortly be doing our yearly video. With many of you giving your predictions, we are also doing a little prediction sweep, which is free to enter. Basically when you are next in the golf centre we will ask for who you think will win the gross and nett. Whoever predicts the correct player for each category wins a dozen golf balls. (in the event of a tie a winner will be randomly selected). A massive buzz is around the club at the moment and this is set to continue! Cannot wait for it!
We have also teamed up with Footjoy to run a special glove promo on the Saturday of club championships. We will give you a brand new glove to use for the round if you like it you can buy it for the multi buy price (£12.50 for sci flex or £9 for GTX) if not you simply give it us back. Bit of a no brainer but Footjoy are that confident in their gloves you will be converted!
It is always nice to get feedback from visitors and we had Elmdon Park golf club here who tweeted we this…
