The Pines at The Ashbury Golf Resort is the second longest of the courses on offer at the venue, constructed at the turn of the century, the course has since matured into a very attractive and challenging test for golfers of all abilities. Many visitors leave talking highly of the front 9, with its wide fairways and gentle slopes, it offers golfers the opportunity to score well, even when they are not playing at their best. Whilst the back 9 is a little more punishing, with its tall mature tree lined fairways that provide an intimidating prospect that requires accuracy from the tee in order to maintain a good score. One to hole we must mention is the 4th, a 270yrd Par 4 that features a narrow uphill drive, lined on one side by trees and the other by multiple water hazards. The short distance tempts those longer hitters to go for the green, however the hazards on either side are dangerous for those who are inaccurate off the tee. Once you safely negotiate the fairway you are faced with a narrow three-tiered green that will test any golfers putting game.

Deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable to a new date or break. We aim to be as flexible as possible and will treat each situation on a case by case basis.
Can we make changes to our break?
Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.
How are package prices displayed on our website?
Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.
The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.
Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.
We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.
