Stratford-on-Avon Golf Club
Our professional Julian Dodsworth has a well earned reputation for his advice on all things golf, from coaching to merchandise and equipment.
The shop is well known for its excellent selection of the latest products and a FREE custom fitting service. Julian organises special fitting days throughout the year, run by the leading manufacturers, which supplements the day to day custom fitting service already available.
Ping, Taylormade and Titleist are available and any product on the market can be sourced quickly due to Julian’s membership of the Foremost buying group, which not only gives great access to products but also keeps the price extremely competitive.
The latest golf balls are available with great care taken to ensure the correct ball for your game. These include Titleist, Srixon, Taylormade and Volvik.
In addition to hardware there is also a fine selection of clothing and shoes for both ladies and gentlemen. Brands such as Footjoy, UnderArmour, Calvin Klein, Green Lamb, Glenmuir, Proquip and Adidas are stocked and there is always a range of crested garments available.
The Proshop is located at the back of the clubhouse and you can find it by walking around the clubhouse as you leave the car park.
Lessons, buggy hire and trolley hire bookings are also booked through the shop.
Julian has been a golf professional since 1995, when he began his professional training with the Professional Golfers’ Association.
After qualifying in 1998 he built up a very successful coaching business and in March 2008 he became the Club Professional.
In addition to his coaching status, he has become one of the leading suppliers of golf equipment in the Midlands, supplying both members and visitors with the highest quality merchandise, with the best advice, at the right price.
Notable achievements have come in the way of winning the 1998 Warwickshire assistants matchplay title and even more for Julian, the very proud achievement of getting his name on the honours board at Stratford on Avon golf club by winning the Gaydon Trophy (winter league), with then Captain Dave Sutton in 2011.
Julian enjoys partnering the captain, ladies captain, seniors captain and the president in pro challenges, a great way to support local charities and entertain the membership at the same time, in addition to the honour of playing with the Captain in some of the club matches.
Julian is a member of Foremost golf, a buying group which allows professionals like Julian the opportunity to compete with the Internet, both in terms of availability and price.
The weekly newsletters that Julian sends out are the perfect way to reach out to the members, with club news and latest offers included.
