Winter Lessons and Indoor Simulator
The end of the season is now upon us and it is time to think about maintaining your game through the winter. At AS Golf, we have a few options for you to do this; either using our indoor simulator or having regular lessons to prevent any rustiness creeping in over the next few months:
Regular Lessons – keeping your game in tune with lessons, without having to be outside in the cold wind and rain will let you be able to walk into next season full of confidence and not being worried about starting off with a succession of point 1s back before settling back in to your game.
45-minute lesson (indoor) £35
1-hour lesson (indoor) £45
6 lesson deal – 1 hour £225 – 6th lesson free
Simulator Use – If lessons are not for you then you are still welcome to use the indoor simulator. We are offering use of it as either a driving range, pre-game warm ups or even fully playing a round. Grab a brew, and bring a friend to play Warwickshire’s Brabazon course or another from our list of 13 great courses.
Full round £25 per hour (up to 4 players) – Playing a course
Practice – 30 minutes £10 – Driving range simulator
Practice – 1 hour £15 – Driving range simulator
Club Replacement – A lot of golfers evaluate what’s in their bag at the end of the season and consider a different combination of clubs, be it hybrids to replace longer irons and changing wedge selections. A great place to start is to establish how far you are hitting each club; we offer a ‘Gapping session’ to do just that for only £30. Once you have an idea of where you currently stand with what’s in your bag you have a clearer picture of what could be improved. For example, if you have a big gap after your pitching wedge and lob wedge it could be worth considering a sand wedge, and so on.
Trade In’s – The cost of replacing golf clubs often proves to be very dissuading, however, we are offering the option to trade in one or more of your current clubs to offset the outlay for an upgrade.

AS Golf Expansion
This winter we successfully expanded our operation in a retail capacity at Kilworth Springs Golf Club. Continued support from our current customers has made this possible and we now offer a similar service of custom fitting with the GC2 simulator at this location. Early signs have indicated both a need for our services across the A5 into Leicestershire. With an area-wide demand for state of the art, make sure you get yourself booked in at Oakridge to keep your game in tune over the coming months. Even as this is being written the weather is cold and dank, showing no signs of improvement.
