   Experience The World Of Enlow Grips  

  Wow is the only thing I can say about Enlow golf grips.
  I had the opportunity to visit with Brad Enlow at the North Coast Golf Show this past February at Somerset, NJ where Brad had on display his Enlow Grips which at the moment I first saw them looked and felt odd.
  The grips featuring a radical reverse tapered design featuring the  narrow end of the grip at the top of the club with the wider end at the golfer's fingertips.
  Brad explained to me that this design is creating a more ergonomically correct golf club.
  This design with the increased diameter at the fingertip increases control by conforming more closely to a resting hand shape and results in a more comfortable swing and improved head control.
  This revolutionary design also reduces injuries to the hands, shoulders and wrists and added to the overall enjoyment of the game.
  But, Brad's Enlow Grips don't stop there in bringing better golf to all players,
  Enlow points out that "by changing the mass of our grips, we are able to reduce vibrations due to shock and lower the swing weight by shifting the weight to the grip end," and "this unique development moves he flex point of the shaft closer to the hands and adds more power to your swing....the end result is increased club head speed and straighter shots."
  Brad stressed the point that "technology has made a phenomenal impact on the game of golf in the past 20 years and we are proud to present our patented Enlow Grips.....the grips of the 21st century."
  When swinging a golf club there are two major concerns, power and control of the club, which both lead to better aim at the desired distance.
  "While technology has improved every aspect of the game over the past 20 years our revolutionary grips, which conform to USGA rules and are used by PGA members, finally bring the impact of technology to the grips," Enlow pointed out.
  We have several of these grips put on our clubs and find that the benefits of the grips include adding power to the swing, improved control of the club, fewer injuries, more comfortable to use, less vibration due to shock, a lowered swing weight, increased club head speed, an improved grip in extreme weather conditions such as rain or heat, straighter shots and fewer injuries to my hands, shoulders and wrists.
  These grips help golfers hit the ball further, stronger and straighter and are a benefit to players at all skill levels.
  And they come with a one-year money back guarantee, buy them, use them and if they don't meet your expectations call Brad and he'll refund your money.
  We love and totally endorse these grips and golfers interested in contacting Brad can call him at 785-776-0559 or by email at brad@enlowgrips.com

  Ed's Outlook

  Carved out of the Catskill Mountains, the French Woods Golf & Country Club Course provides unparalleled vistas and priceless views on it's 18 hole 6,135 yard public course.
  The course is also unique in that it offers  private lodges situated throughout the golf course with each lodge featuring 2 bedrooms, dining and living room and full kitchen.
  Russ and Lynn Bass have worked hard to bring a scenic challenging and enjoyable golf course to all levels of players.
  The clubhouse overlooks the course and entire valley providing panoramic views that reach out to as far away as 25 miles.
  The land upon which the golf course is built is now once again back in the Bass and Bouchoux  family whose descendants were some of the first settlers and land owners in the French Woods area....dating back to the mid 1800's.
  In 1997, Russell and Lynn Bass (whose maiden name was Bouchoux) were looking to attract interest to the French Woods area. Their decision was to construct a golf  course, restaurant and log cabins for rental.
  Construction of the front nine of the golf course was started in the spring of 1997. This was not a simple easy project as the entire area was all woods.
  Russell designed the course and since he was in the logging business, logging crews came in, cut down trees and cleared the land.
  On June 29, 1999 the first nine holes were open. Work continued on the back nine and on June 29, 2001 the back nine opened.
  The course is presently home to a Tuesday Men's league. The Hancock Central School use French Woods as their home golf course for league competition.
  The course plays from the blue tees 6,135 yards and is a par 72. The front and back nine play to par 36. The front nine plays a total of 3,116 yards from the blue tees. The back nine from the blue tees plays 3,019 yards.
  This is the first year that the former back nine is now the front nine and the former front nine became the back nine.
  Cabin and golf packages are also available.
  Golf course superintendent is Dan Wormuth.
  Linda Ferris manages the club house operations assisted by Angie Theis behind the bar.
  The pro shop offers all the essentials of golf and a small bar greets you as you enter the clubhouse. A putting green awaits you just outside the clubhouse entrance.
  Club memberships are available at $350 for senior single, $400 for single, $600 for senior couple, $650 for couple. Rates are also available that include golf and the cart.  Cart rates are $10 for nine holes and $15 for 18 holes.
  The club special of $26 Monday  through Thursday includes golf and cart for 18 holes and breakfast or lunch.  For tee reservations call 607-637-1800.  Their web site is www.frenchwoodsgolf.com  
  Our golf outing at French Woods Golf & Country Club was part of our efforts this season to describe the most difficult hole on our area golf courses.
  The No. 1 handicap hole on this course is the 365-yard No. 6 hole that presents several challenges that easily makes this the most difficult hole on the 18-hole layout.  Golfers have an open fairway off the tee but the best tee shot here is the right center portion of the fairway and this will help keeping your ball away from the large pond on the left.
  After avoiding the pond golfers find a fairway that runs directly uphill to a green that slopes from the back to the front.
  Depending on the pin location it is best to play your ball below the pin as putts above the hole could easily  end up running off the green.
  Getting your par 4 on this hole takes precision off the tee and excellent ball placement on the green.
  This is an excellently designed hole.

Brad Enlow holds what he calls "The World's Finest Grips, I Promise". They feature a radical reverse tapered design.

The 365 yard par four 6th hole at the French Woods Golf & Country Club is rated the No. 1 handicap and is easily the most difficult hole on this 18-hole course. Featuring a large pond on the left and an uphill fairway on the right the green also slopes back to front.
