The Julian Mellor Golf School at the Warwick Golf Centre on Hampton Road, will be the only venue in the area which is totally dedicated to teaching golf.

Providing tuition to golfers of all abilities, the aim of the new school is to create a relaxed environment where players can learn and improve their golf in an enjoyable fashion.

Commenting on the launch, Mellor said: “It’s been a long- held ambition of mine to create a dedicated learning centre where I can fully concentrate on doing what I love and work with people on improving and enjoying their golf.

“My vision really is to create a whole new local golfing community where players enjoy learning together whilst also experiencing the social side of golf, and it’s certainly a journey I’m looking forward to embarking on.”

James Porter provided the highlight of the May Medal and EGU Qualifier at Kenilworth Golf Club on Saturday.

The 18-handicapper achieved his ace on the 191-yard par three 10th hole but it was not enough to get among the prizes on a day of good scoring.

Countback was required to determine the A Division with Charles Leggitt 80, nett 70, edging out Dave Lloyd 79, nett 70, and David Wright 80, nett 70, by virtue of a better back nine.

Jim McCarthy 80, nett 68, was a narrow winner of the B Division, while Matthew Robins 84, nett 66, took the C Division honours.

McCarthy and Robins qualified for the EGU competition at Woodhall Spa.

Meanwhile, Steve Taylor and John Sweeten were crowned Winter League champions on holes difference from Richard and Roger Jones after both pairs finished with 14 points from their eight matches.
