Director of golf at Trafford Golf Centre, Pete Styles said, “To hit this milestone so early on in the year is great news for Trafford Golf Centre. We cater for all ages and levels and would encourage anyone keen to give golf a go or brush up their skills to visit the centre and see what we have on offer.”
