The new Tour Edition yardage book – packed with critical course information

Clere Golf, the graphic communications specialists to the golf industry, has joined forces with Dion Stevens, the esteemed European Tour yardage book creator, to launch a new, premium quality course planner.

The new Tour Edition combines the comprehensive level of pinpoint accurate measurements collated by Dion with Clere Golf’s innovation and creativity in presenting course information with clarity.

This approach offers clubs the exclusive opportunity to provide a European Tour quality product in a digestible format for the golfing public.

A former tour professional inAustraliaandAsia, Dion Stevens began creating his own yardage books because the level of accuracy and detail he required was unavailable elsewhere.

He has since measured more than 700 golf courses in 13 years and produced the planner used by the world’s best players competing in the 2010 Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor’s Twenty Ten Course.

Among the first golf resorts to be supplied with the new Tour Edition, includes host of the Commercialbank Qatar Masters, Doha Golf Club and Teoula Golf Club, France.

Anthony Miley, Golf Operations Manager at Doha Golf Club, said: “This product is one-of-a-kind. I want golfers playing here to receive an authentic, European Tour-style experience, which is exactly what this provides.

“I know Dion from his work here at the Commercialbank Qatar Masters and was impressed by the significant level of detail that he produces for tour professionals. I wanted to offer that to all golfers atDoha, in a user-friendly, readable book, which is where the expertise of Clere Golf has been crucial.

“Many visiting golfers take course-planners as souvenirs too, so the book’s premium finish leaves a lasting impression of quality from the resort.”

Overseeing each project, personally, from beginning to end Dion has extensive experience and instinctively collects the most significant measurements required for golfers using the yardage book.

Steve Richardson, Business Development Director at Clere Golf, said: “When it comes to the design we work with the golf club to develop the graphics which suits their style best, but it’s the information which goes onto each page that sets the Tour Edition apart.

“Each book contains critical course details compiled by Dion including; superior green detail and drive line information such as carries to fairways and over bunkers, plus run-outs on dogleg holes.”
