Welcome from the Captains of 2023
AGC Captain, Mr Garry Pennington, and our Lady Captain, Miss Trish Mawdsley, are very proud and honoured, to welcome you to Ashton-in-Makerfield Golf Club, for 2023. We look forward to representing the club over the next 12 months. On behalf of the members, we would like to warmly welcome all visitors, and guests, to the club, whether it be for golf, a social event, or a business meeting.
As Captain, I have chosen Young Carers, as my charity. It is a small local charity, operating in and around the area of AGC, looking after the welfare of youngsters, who are themselves caring for a parent, or sibling.
As Lady Captain, I have chosen Alzheimer's Society, as my charity, and is a cause close to my heart.
Our parkland course has a good variety of holes and offers a test for all golfers. Non-members can enjoy playing the course as a guest, visitor, society, during open competitions, or have a casual round.
Members, guests, and visitors are well looked after in the clubhouse. The bar is run by Cheryl and her team. The catering is provided by Clare Chapman Catering and her team. These facilities are enjoyed after a round of golf, and/or as part of the busy diary of club social events. The clubhouse can also be hired for private functions by members and non-members alike. Our Manager/Secretary, Garry Lacy, and the office staff can provide the details, in addition to information on joining the club, or on playing the course as part of a society, or as an individual.
Our Club Professional Peter Allan and his assistants have a wide range of golf equipment in the shop and have a multi-media Swing Studio available for tuition, along with the option of on course lessons.
All sections of the club (Men, Ladies, Seniors, Juniors, and Social) have regular competitions during the year and new members would be given a warm welcome. The Men have competitions every week, and lively banter after the round. The Ladies section will assure a warm, relaxed and informal welcome to all new members. The Ladies section has grown vastly over the last couple of years and offers an exciting social side as well as excellent golf opportunities/competitions. The Junior section is always ready to introduce the next Tiger, Rory or Tommy, so please do encourage family to join in. Social memberships are always encouraged.
We hope that everyone enjoys their time at Ashton-in-Makerfield Golf Club during 2023, and if you see us around the club, please do come to say hello.
Garry and Trish
