Photographs show that the new Driving Range and Short Game Facility is almost ready
Monday, 15th April: Paul visited Ashton & Lea Golf Club today to review the developments so far, before he officially opens the facility on Saturday
The 14 Bay driving range (9 covered, and 5 open-air) will provide big-hitters with more than 300 yards to test out their skills.
The Range, along with a superb Short Game Area, will provide a high quality practice area for golfers of all capabilities.
NO Clubs? Want to try out the facility? - NO problem, as loan clubs will be available.
Just come along, have a look, and have a chat with the golf pros in the club to get more details of what will be on offer.

The Par 71 course measures 6359 yards from the white tees, 6112 from the yellows tees and 5508 from the ladies tees. Ashton & Lea is a fairly flat course and provides a fair test of golf for players of all abilities, but it is a course that requires the player to think and plot their way round.
The course features three tricky par-3's, most notably the 6th, where out of bounds awaits any over hit tee shots. Water plays its part at Ashton & Lea, as seven holes on the back nine are affected by it. Another of the outstanding holes is the short par-4 13th - on the tee the player is faced with either attempting to fly the water that lurks around 210 yards from the tee, or play safe and lay-up short leaving a longer second. The approach shot is played downhill to a bowl shaped green; a par here is readily accepted.
The greens at Ashton & Lea are small and elusive and the course has a reputation for being one of the best kept in the North West
