GOLF manager Jason Denton is delighted with the progress that has been made at Altrincham Golf Club and excited by future plans for the venue which is drawing rave reviews for the quality of the course and the other facilities on offer.

Denton has been in his role at Altrincham's golf course and driving range since February 2018 and is pleased with the success so far.

He said: “My career path in golf started in 2012 when I was approached by the senior leadership team of Trafford Community Leisure Trust to join the golf side of the leisure business.

“My working history was that of management within leisure centres, coupled with a passion for playing golf.

“The two went hand in hand and my knowledge of the golf industry meant a skill set made for that aspect of the business and saw me being appointed as the assistant golf manager at the William Wroe golf course.

“In 2016 I stepped up to assistant manager at both Altrincham and William Wroe and this was a fantastic challenge.

“Then, last February, I was appointed as the golf manager for Altrincham golf course and driving range due to a restructure within the business and since then I haven’t looked back.

“There have been many changes to the business which is seeing a boom in membership and player numbers, and is also creating a thriving golf atmosphere which many local members want to be part of.

“One of our key changes this year, and probably one of the most important, was the appointment of a dedicated and professional sales development manager in Glyn Richards, who started with Trafford Leisure in March 2018 and has attracted 80 new members to the membership portfolio of the course to date.

“We also have an excellent green keeping team headed by Rob Cooper.

"Rob and his team have a relentless attitude and have produced some of the best surfaces to be found locally.

“The quality of his work has generated a buzz within the local golfing community to the admiration of sports turf professionals and master green keepers.

“As a team we have high aspirations and we have the drive, ambition and professionalism to create a very unique golfing experience for all players to enjoy.

“Trafford Leisure is the operator of Altrincham golf course and driving range and is a forward-thinking and dynamic company with a mission to get more people more active, more often by enhancing the community through the provision of first-class sport and leisure opportunities.

“Our memberships are very unique in that our packages are ‘all-in packages’ and means you don’t have to pay another penny all year.

“If you include the free health and fitness membership we offer as part of our seven-day package then we really do offer packages that cannot be matched by any other club.

"We are a truly unique golfing experience.”
