Construction began on Aintree Golf Centre and Driving Range in 1993, with the 30 Bay Floodlit Driving Range opening in April 1994, and the 9 hole golf course following suit in October 1994. The golf course was designed by Warrington based PGA Professional, Michael Slater.
As well as the Driving Range and the Golf Course, the Grand National Golf Club also operates from Aintree Golf Centre. The Golf Club is a fully affiliated member of England Golf (which was granted in March 1995) offering golfers recognised handicap status through the WHS system. There is also a junior section of the Grand National Golf Club for young players up to the age of 18. At Aintree we actively encourage Junior Golf for boys and girls and with the support of the Golf Foundation where we are registered as a Golf Roots Centre; our intention is to grow that section of our membership....Please contact Lewis Espley our Junior Coordinator for further details. Our resident Professional Scot Duffy is actively involved with the Juniors, regularly organising visits to local primary and secondary schools and putting on teaching sessions for educational establishments and community groups on the Driving Range.
We also have a small but very friendly and enthusiastic Ladies Section who are always on the lookout for new players to join them on their Saturday morning excursions around the golf course....Please contact Cornelius O'Neill, the Ladies Coordinator for further informnation.
We have a simple but meaningful ethos here at Aintree Golf Centre, we welcome anyone who has an iterest in golf, it doesn't matter what level you play the game at, or whether you just want to get involved in any way, shape or form. Come down and visit us, you will always receive a pleasant welcome.
