What an amazing start to the golfing season. The weather has been fantastic and the number of new customers to The Golf Centre tells us we are doing something right. At times, there has been some long queues waiting to go of the first but this hasn't detered anyone and gives some a good excuse to sit in the sun and enjoy a beer or 2. We are delighted that more and more people are taking up the game of golf and are choosing Ashton to develop their skills. It really has been a fabulous few weeks and I with all the bank holidays, Martin and I had to learn to drive the tractors to help get the fairways cut. We have seen a big increase in the number of golf society holding their events at Ashton and returning week on week. A special thanks to Pipescan, a local drainage business based in Pressall who ran a golf day for friends and colleagues to celebrate the Royal Wedding, sort of!. It was for all those men who wanted to avoid the Wedding!! We had a fabulous day and even better prizes (wedding day plates!! LOL) The Golf Centre Veterans have also enjoyed a successful start to their season winning their last 2 matches, firstly against Poulton Le Fylde Golf Club and then against Crook Golf Club. Feed back from all golf events has been tremendous and I never would have believed that we could seat 40 in the upstairs cafe..but we did!!
Local Lancaster businesses that would like to hold a Golf Day are welcome to do so, maybe treat the staff to a day out or bring some customers to the friendliest most affordable golf course in the area.
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.
