Introduction

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break and New Year celebrations and are looking forward to the year ahead!

We have had a busy few weeks in the Mansion, Pavilion and on the golf course. As well as our annual maintenance week, we have nearly finished the new Orangery kitchen, which will assist in improving service and delivery times for the Orangery and the lawn in the summer months (we have also ordered new outdoor furniture, with various table sizes). The works on the Pavilion’s new ladies spa changing room are nearly complete and are on track to open in February. And the construction of the new 10th tee (on the right as you arrive) will be finished by the end of January.

We are meeting the council this month to discuss planning applications for: a covered seating area extension for the half-way house, floodlighting for the outdoor tennis courts, a new games room for children, a permanent covered driving bay and a walled vegetable and herb garden.

Golf Performance Fitness at Stoke Park Gym

To help improve our golf game, we spend a fortune on clubs, balls and coaching. But we sometime fail to take a look at improving the most important part of a golf swing…….Ourselves.

During a swing our body creates enough rotation and torque to strike the ball by using our body’s mobility, stability and co-ordination. It is not the club that generates the power to strike the golf ball over 200 yards down the fairway, it is you!

If you can improve your body’s power and mobility, you will directly improve on the distances you can hit the golf ball. Not only that, if you build on your strength to stabilize the golf swing you will create a more consistent, accurate swing and keep you injury free.

Using the Titleist Performance Institute Movement Screen, we can assess the body bio-mechanically, which helps us determine the potential problems that are inhibiting your swing.

From this we will develop a program designed around your specific needs and maximizing your time.
Please contact Jules in the gym for more information on 01753 717104 or email:  jbaker@stokepark.com

  • Increased sense of well being and self esteem
  • Improved posture and relief from backache
  • Reduction in pregnancy induced symptoms
