Ashton-in-Makerfield Golf Club is a stunning treasure found on the outskirts of St Helens. The 6223 yard parkland style course is a really stunning spectacle with beautiful flowers and high towering mature trees overlooking the greens and fairways. Ashton-in-Makerfield is kept in superb condition and the greens are often touted as some of the best in the region. The hardest hole at Ashton-in-Makerfield is the 450 yard par 4 11th hole named 'The Rookeries’. A challenge for any golfer, the 11th hole contains a ditch running across the fairway and the green slopes away from you. Anything long will be difficult to make a par. If you get the pleasure of playing at Ashton-in-Makerfield, make sure to visit the recently refurbished Clubhouse.
