Kris wins the Firkin in style

Last weekend Kris took home his 5th Buchan Firkin title at Fraserburgh Golf Club with an impressive 10 under par total.

His first round score of 62 (-8) featured 6 birdies and an eagle in a blemish free round which was just one shot away from the course record.

It isn’t yet known if this is a lowest ever total for the event but the club are scouring the history books to find out.

Either way, it is a fantastic score and a great achievement, especially given the fact Kris is spending so much time helping other golfers these days.

Kris has fast gained a reputation as a top teacher of the game as he shares his knowledge from years of experience playing at an elite level. Never one to shy away from continuing his learning, he has used lockdown to further his education and has recently put together an exciting new project called the Speed Clinic.

Kris’ Speed Clinic is proving popular

The first series of 6 lessons filled up quickly so he has added another class starting on Monday 5th October 7-8pm for six consecutive weeks.

The speed clinic is for anyone looking to gain at least 20 yards on their tee shots and gains in yardage on every full shot.

“I started the Superspeed training programme at the beginning of lockdown and the gains I have made are unbelievable! 115mph was my max clubhead speed with a driver but now I can reach 123mph! So now when I go and play I can easily achieve faster speeds without as much effort. That’s game changing for me and now I am excited about what I can do for you!”
– Kris Nicol, PGA Golf Professional

Rosehearty Tee Time Booking Service

Peter Myers, PGA Professional and owner of Dunes Golf Centre, has reached out to help Rosehearty Golf Club during the Covid19 crisis.

With the need for all golf tee times to be booked to aide in track and trace should it be needed, the club were left with no choice but to come up with a solution.

To begin with volunteers from the club, most notably Steven Ritchie, were taking requests from members to play by email on a daily basis.

This was both time consuming and not ideal for the members as they could not book to play the same day and instead had to book in advance. With the ever chagning weather conditons here in North East Scotland there were plenty of occasions were it would come out nice but the course was empty.

So, come to the rescue Peter at Dunes!

Peter has been using an online booking system for golf lessons, custom fitting and driving range usage for years and with a slight modification has put together a booking page for members at the club to book tee times.
