Many people, once they retire want to start golf but for some reason feel the barriers put them off. At Ashton we have spent many years breaking down these barriers, helping lots and lots of men and women Get Into Golf in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Everyone has to start somewhere and Ashton is definitely one of the most popular for those starting out on their golfing lifestyle.
A word of warning IT'S ADDICTIVE - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
Maybe you have thought about playing but never quite got around to it, perhaps because you thought it was too late to learn?
Think again, your senior years can be the very best time to enjoy the game! You can dedicate the time to it and enjoy hours of exercise and enjoyment outdoors.
Here Are Ten Reasons You Should Take Up Golf: there are many more reasons, but hopefully this will encourage you to come and see us.
⦁ Age is not a barrier: You are never too old to learn golf and it doesn’t matter what shape or size you are either. Golfers, even professional golfers come in ever shape and size imaginable.
⦁ You’ll live longer: Really they do, 5 years on average according to a Swedish study.

⦁ Golf Keeps You Mentally Active: Golf is not just a physical game but a mental one as well. It calls for strategy, creativity and problem-solving, all of which help keep your brain active, one of the key ingredients in fighting off the aging process.
