Case study- Joe Macilwraith

I joined the club in 2008 at the age of 11 playing off a handicap of 27. I’d heard great things about Olton, so I applied for membership and was delighted when I got accepted into the golf club. We have a very warm and welcoming membership here. I have made many lifelong friends and it felt like home right from the start. I started to have lessons and I’ve continued to progress. The course is always in superb condition with the greens being the best surfaces I have ever putted on. My biggest praise for the golf course is the top-class condition it is kept in all year round, making it suitable for the various competitions we hold as a club. Our practice facilities are first class with a state-of-the-art indoor swing studio, an excellent putting green, a four bay driving range and a short game area.
Since joining Olton I have achieved...

My handicap was +4, as an amateur and I turned professional in 2021 competing on the Clutch Tour. Olton has been the perfect place for me to progress my game and I would recommend the club to anyone.
