Go from good to great

Deliver a bit of Christmas cheer every time you tee it up

TaylorMade's latest range is designed to bridge the gap between your longest irons, all the way through to the fairway woods. Your yardages are so important when it comes to improving your scores and trying to hit more greens in a round of golf. So, it’s imperative that you have the right clubs in the bag to get you those distances consistently. We have a TaylorMade Fitting Day scheduled at the River Club on the 19th December.

The TaylorMade experts and our pros will be here to help you go longer and further and to make sure we fill that gap in your bag.

A step in the right direction

Hours on the golf course will eventually takes it toll - be sure to be fitted with the right golf shoes for maximum comfort.

The direction of technology

Are you making the most of what we have?
The PGA Tour has seen spectacular increases in distance off the tee. Our sense is that the percentage increases have by now way been replicated for the average golfer. The good news is that means that there is a ton of potential available to you.


Using perfectly fitted, larger-headed, longer-shafted drivers, the best players have a 15 – 20% yardage gain. Have you seen that improvement in the last few years? It won’t take us long to calculate just how big an improvement you could make.


Smallest change; biggest improvement,
Sometimes a golfer has the right tool, but is using them in the wrong way. Sometimes just a change in ball position; an improvement in setup; or the sequence of the downswing; produce that 10 – 15% improvement.

Choose your Weapon

The new Srixon Fairways, Hybrids, and Utility all provide ease of use, but now you can choose the shot versatility you wish without losing forgiveness. We think that’s a big win.
Here's why >

What motivates you?

Is there a particular format you enjoy most?

We’re trying to gain a better understanding of what’s important to our golfers. In the last two weeks, we’ve really appreciated the responses to the simple questions asked. If you didn’t answer and want to help out, we’ve got the first two weeks below. 

This week we examine formats. We sense that this is an area of the game where golfers of different ages, and those with different handicaps, might have different views.

Let us know
This is one question. Let us know your most and least favorite format.
