Austrey Golf Society is over 20 years old and the Society continues to thrive today with over 25 members. We play at various golf clubs in the area including Drayton Park, Maxstoke, The Belfry and Willesley Park in Ashby.
We play once a month, always on a week day, and at least 8 times a year. Costs vary from £25 to £40 for an 18 hole game and usually include an English breakfast before we tee-off. Our choice of golf course varies from Championship to more local courses, but always in the Midlands and we look to play at different clubs every few years.
Membership is only £25 per year, and the fee goes towards prizes and our optional annual Christmas dinner If you are interested in joining, or would like to come along as a guest to see if you would like it, then you would be most welcome.

We meet on Friday Mornings at 10:00 and try to arrange both a short walk of 2-3 miles and a longer walk of
4-6 miles anywhere in the 4 counties area.
We change our start point each week so check out our Walking for Health website here
