With an ever increasing amount of counterfeit goods being purchased in shops and on auction web sites we are now offering a service where we will check your clubs are authentic and alert the relevant authorities of the source if they are fake. This service is free and will hopefully help to kerb this fast growing problem in the golf industry.
Due to our high turnover in Electric Golf Trollies we have been an authorised PowaKaddy Service Centre since 1989 and more recently an authorised Motocaddy Service Centre & Battery Test Centre. We can repair and service your trolley to an approved industry standard within short periods of time getting you back on the course fast.
It has always been our vision to take golf retail to a higher level by creating the ultimate shopping experience. It is now the launch of our new on line store that makes this vision become a reality. Richard Blake has built his business around extraordinary levels of customer service and this is how he plans to run his new venture, www.richardblake.co.uk.
The selection on the website will not initially be a true reflection of the vast choice in our retail shop due to the fact that we want to ensure a professional, speedy turn around of your order at all times. To offer the same great levels of service online as we do in shop it is necessary for us to start at a steady pace and build. Obviously Richard’s buying power means there will be some amazing offers available online so don’t delay, start buying today!
Born in Salisbury, Richard Blake and Wiltshire Golf have been inseparable for over 30 years.
As an amateur Richard represented Wiltshire at junior and senior level picking up numerous titles including the Wiltshire Schools Scratch Championship in 1987 and the Wiltshire Junior Championship in 1988.
Turning Professional in 1990 Richard was based at North Wilts Golf Club building up great respect as a knowledgeable teacher to golfers of all ages. In more recent times Richard has become coach at both county and national level.
Golf professionals specialise in club repairs and Richard operates a highly skilled business in the construction, repair and restoration of golf clubs. Richard has serviced Powakaddy electric golf trolleys since 1989 and his knowledge of them is very comprehensive. As an approved service centre golfers visit from all over the West Country.
Richard is currently based at Upavon Golf Club where he has been since 1993. Working closely with Environmental Consultants Richard was given the opportunity in 1995 to design the current course layout. Opening in May 1997 the 6402 yd par 71 design has received much acclaim for its challenging test over undulating terrain with small well-guarded greens. The course is maturing into one of the county's finest and Richard is still closely involved with its ongoing development.
Out on the golf course Richard has claimed several titles including the Wiltshire Professional Strokeplay Championship 1998, the Wiltshire Professional Matchplay Championship 1996, 1998, 1999 and the West Region PGA Club Professional Championship 1998.
Richard was Secretary/Treasurer of the Wiltshire Professional Golfers Association from 1996 until 2003 and in the role he organised in excess of thirty pro am events. He is now an expert in the promotion and advertising of all types of golf events/corporate days.
In November 2000 Richard strengthened his old links with North Wilts Golf Club to form a strong force in golf retail by operating two shops, seven staff and thousands of pounds worth of equipment. Since then Richard has continued to concentrate on Golf retail and has worked closely with numerous local Golf Professionals to maximize buying power. During the last few years Richard has helped stock five Wiltshire On Course Golf Shops, three local Driving Ranges and six On Course Golf Shops in neighbouring counties.
With this expertise in Golf Retail Richard is currently helping a Major Golf Manufacturer in a consultant position advising on future trading with PGA Professionals as well as working closely with them to help develop new products.
