We are pleased to announce that we have been able to go back on the summer tees earlier than expected. Mainly due to the good weather, but also due to the hard work of the green keepers. The course is looking amazing and the customers are showing their appreciation by turning up in droves. The whole place is getting busier which is lovely to see after the hard work. Group bookings have increased from last year, due to our new web marketing strategy and the competitive tailor made packages on offer. A couple of groups have re-booked, which speaks volumes....
Just added a new picture to the website...our teaching pro Stuart Booth. Stuart has been busy this week contacting all the local school in Lancaster, offering them the opportunity to take up golf. Junior golf is on the increase all over the country, especially with golf becoming part of the Olympic Games in 2014. For the UK to grow new talent, we need to invest in our Juniors and get them out on the golf course. Many golfing parents believe that they can teach their children golf themselves and this is great, but we also recommend that to get them started properly they take some lessons from a qualified professional. Stuart offers group lessons for Juniors and it is a great starting point for boys and girls who show an interest in the golf game. The Junior Golf Academy in Lancaster is very popular. It is also amazingly reasonable at £22.50 for 5 one hour sessions.
The children will learn the golf stance, the golf grip and the golf swing in a fun and friendly environment. They will also get qualified advise on equipment and golf etiquette, as well as making new friends and learning new lifelong skills and all this in the outdoors. What could be better?
Stuart also offers adult lessons, either on a one 2 one basis or in a group. Call Stuart for golf lessons at Lancaster's pay and play golf course, Ashton Golf Centre. 07884135784
The Golf Course is looking lovely this time of year, with the spring sunshine making evrything fresher and brighter and our family of deer are regularly showing their faces on the fairway.
We are open to everyone and only a 5 minute drive from Lancaster. Come along and see for yourself....
Good weather in Lancashire yesterday, meant a great start to March, with many pay and play golfers enjoying, possibly, the warmest day this year. Let's hope this year's weather is altogether better than last. I have registered Ashton Golf Centre on twitter and am busy searching for great tweets to follow, so we can give our customers lots of interesting info and golf offers. So keep checking back on the website for golf tips. If you have a twitter account then you can follow our tweets. We also have a group on facebook, so why not become our "friend" it is easy to do, just click on the picture of on our contact us page. I spent the day in Ulverston yesterday, with an internet marketing guru, Kay Hebbourn. We had an amazing time and I learnt so much about getting Ashton Golf Centre known worldwide. After a couple of hours of brain frazzling internet marketing, we went for a lovely work with her 3 dogs, to clear the mind and get some really fresh air...
What a stunning view..
Martin and Helen Lake will be writing pieces on this blog, hopefully weekly! We have owned Ashton Golf centre since October 2008 and have enjoyed a rewarding first year in business. Martin is PGA Golf Professional and is able to answer any questions you may have with regard to the golf game. We both look forward to receiving your comments and ideas for our pay and play Golf Centre, Lancaster.
