The Future of Golf


What are golf courses and business owners thinking now? Well firstly, we are astonished that it took a pandemic to bring the opportunities and benefits of this amazing game to fruition. The overwhelming response to tee time bookings, membership enrolment, returning players, newcomers and lesson inquiries has been extraordinary. This is all considering it has been years, since many clubs have seen this type of action and engagement.


When the green light was given by government authorities that golf courses would open for the 2020 season, it was imperative that new policies and procedures be implemented in order to ensure a safe and positive experience for employees, golfers and guests. We’d like to take a moment to commend all industry staff on adhering to safety policies, while working tirelessly to constantly sanitize, disinfect, check-in guests, serve guests, perform their employee duties and provide the utmost outstanding customer service. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it! It was an honour to help give our communities an outlet to enjoy the game we all love so much and provide a safe way for people to come together during these unprecedented times.



The pandemic has definitely played a major role in the resurrection of the golf industry. There’s no denying that 2020 was an amazing year for golf, but can we expect the same for 2021? Most golfers will tell you, once you’ve acquired a taste of an amazing golf experience, there’s really no removing yourself from this game. It becomes a lifestyle and part of who you are. It’s the only game where you can have a completely unsalvageable hole, but drop a massive 40 foot putt for a quadruple bogey and celebrate like you holed it from the tee deck.

With that being said, we are most definitely preparing ourselves for another year like 2020! We are gearing up to create more amazing memories for our golfers and we believe we are not alone in our thought process.


Royal Ashburn Golf Club designed unique memberships that give golfers the flexibility of pay as you play with the Royal Ashburn Member experience. There’s so much golf to be played, we want you to have the opportunity to experience it all!

Where do we go from here? Now we continue to grow the game of golf like we’ve always planned. We welcome the newcomers, we stay grateful to our loyal and returning members, customers and guests and we find ways to improve our teachings so that those who love this game can continue to play it as long as possible.

At Royal Ashburn Golf Club, we are continuously discovering new ways for golfers to enjoy the game of golf. We are evolving with the game and designing new lesson programs that utilize the most innovative technology. Our goal is to continue to help golfers grow their game potential and provide a safe and comfortable environment for those interested in beginning their golf journey. We have no doubt that you will fall in love with the game of golf but at Royal Ashburn Golf Club, we want you to fall in love with the entire experience that golf brings with it. We are looking forward to an amazing 2021 and can’t wait to see you out on the course.






More about Royal Ashburn Golf Club and our Golf Services can be found on our website. We’d be happy to answer any questions regarding this post or any questions or concerns you may have in regards to golf operations during the pandemic. Take care!


Small but Spectacular Weddings!

Does a spectacular wedding have to be BIG to be amazing? Do you need to invite your Dads, brothers, cousins, nephews barber? During these uncertain times, we are staying positive and hopeful that things will be back to normal sooner than later. Unfortunately, there is always that voice in the back of our heads that tries to reason with the unknown. But that’s just it, we just don’t know. We can only prepare with the information we have in front of us right now. Our hope is that other venues continue to work with their couples, like we at Royal Ashburn Golf Club have been doing, to provide the best solutions without compromising our couples overall wedding vision.


One of the most challenging and most debated items on the wedding to-do list is the dreaded guest list. “Well if we invite Aunt Jill we have to invite cousin Marge.” “But, if we invite Aunt Jill and cousin Marge then we have to invite Uncle Alex, Aunt Bess and their kids.” Sound familiar? We’ve heard these conversations and most of us have lived them. We’ve heard the concerns of our couples and we’ve been working towards alternative solutions to try and relieve some of the stresses that go along with wedding planning, let alone the stresses of wedding planning during a pandemic. If a big wedding isn’t for you, and analyzing every grand detail just isn’t your style, that’s ok! For couples looking for a more intimate, unique, economical and adventurous wedding experience, we are proud to introduce the Ready-Set Wedding Package, smaller guest count, but mighty beautiful.


To provide an answer to the posed question above, does a wedding have to be BIG to be spectacular? Definitely not. The trend in smaller sized weddings such as Pop-Up Weddings and Micro-Weddings isn’t something new. It means more in the budget for celebrating your wedding day with the people who are closest to you. Or maybe using some of those savings towards a new house, a snazzier honeymoon, extra savings for well, saving! The point is, you’ll be saving money and celebrating what truly matters, love united. More intimacy, less planning and more time to enjoy your wedding celebration. When the time is right and you have worked with your wedding venue to coordinate all the details that bring your vision to life, it will be, what it should be, the most beautiful day of your lives. 

Furthermore, we’d love the opportunity to work with you on creating a wedding day that speaks directly to who you are as a couple. Whether that is a WED NOW, PARTY LATER package you are looking for or just a ceremony in our beautiful gardens we’d love to talk about your options. For more information on our Ready-Set Wedding Package, Ready-Set Married Ceremonies, or any of our wedding packages, please reach out to our events team here at Royal Ashburn Golf Club. It would be our pleasure to help you create a truly magical wedding day, that you and your guests will remember always.



5 Reasons to Sign up for Golf Lessons for Kids!

Golf lessons for kids are about having fun while they learn and play what so many deem to be ‘the greatest game known to man’. Junior golf camps held at the Royal Ashburn Golf Club in the Durham Region hope to contribute to not only creating great golfers but also well-rounded individuals. But, what does golf teach kids? Here are 5 reasons to sign kids up for golf lessons: 

1. Golf Lessons for Kids Promote a Healthy and Active Lifestyle 

Encouraging kids to be active from a young age sets good habits early on, and it also develops the skills they need to stay active throughout their lives. It boosts their confidence, improves their posture and flexibility while building strong bones and muscles. 

2. Golf Lessons for Kids Cultivate Integrity and Honesty

Because golf is a sport of honour, kids will learn to be honest and speak the truth. They will also learn that integrity is about making good choices, doing the right things for the right reason and being honest with yourself and others. 

3. Golf Lessons for Kids Foster Patience 

Golf is about concentration and patience. Learning patience will teach kids to stay calm in stressful situations, something they will face their whole lives. They also learn to understand situations that require tolerance and to be more polite.  

4. Golf Lessons for Kids Encourage Sportsmanship 

Kids will learn to win without gloating and to lose gracefully. Sportsmanship through golf will also teach them to respect their opponents, encourage their teammates and end the game on a positive note, with a handshake, win or lose. 

5. Golf Lessons for Kids Will Teach Them a Game They Can Play Their Whole Lives

Golf is a social and enjoyable sport that provides a stimulating mental and physical challenge in pleasant surroundings. You can play it on your own or as part of a team. It is a sport that can be played at any age, and investing in golf lessons for kids will teach them a game they can play their whole lives. 

All instructors at the Royal Ashburn Golf Academy are trained and certified instructors and are PGA of Canada Golf Professionals. Contact us today if you are interested in junior golf camps in the Durham Region and want to know more about golf lessons for kids.

7 Health Benefits of Playing Golf

At face value, golf has always been portrayed as a ‘luxury’ or ‘business’ sport, with a typically imagined scene probably that of a CEO, wining and dining business associates on one of the best golf courses in Durham Region on a warm Friday afternoon. Behind this exterior, golf has proven to be beneficial to a player’s health in many ways.

Here are 7 reasons why golf is good for both your body and mind:

1. Weight Loss

According to Fitbit, the recommended number of steps per day to aid weight loss is 10,000. An 18-hole round of golf can easily exceed this recommended number, especially if you walk the golf course during your golf lessons in Durham without making use of a golf cart.

2. Lower Chances of Injury

Golf is considered a low-impact sport. Because the game is played on soft and gently rolling surfaces, it doesn’t involve too many high-impact movements. More mature players find this sport attractive for these reasons as they can still burn calories.

3. Brain Stimulation

The game of golf not only challenges a player’s physical skills but also their ability to stay calm and focused. It’s a great way to boost brain power and to stimulate your brain, sharpening a player’s concentration. 

4. Stress and Anxiety Reduction

General exercise is considered a natural stress reliever. A challenging game of golf can increase mental capability, creativity and the ability to solve problems, with the added benefit of doing so in the fresh outdoors.

5. Heart Health

Any form of exercise promoted the blood pumping into your heart. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, exercise not only reduces the risk of a stroke and diabetes, but it also has positive effects on reducing blood pressure and harmful cholesterol. Golf is no exception. 

6. Improves Sleeping Patterns

With all the exercise involved on a golf course, golfers may fall asleep faster and more deeply, remaining in a deep sleep for longer periods of time due to the amount of energy released from a game of golf. Deeper sleep is a must for your body to regenerate cells and to repair your muscles and tissues. 

7. Improves Vision

Golfers require good vision to concentrate on the ball that may be hundreds of yards away. A player learns to home in on the small target from long distances. Prior to the swing, golfers can evaluate the quality of their vision and improve their hand-eye coordination. 

The Royal Ashburn Golf Club boasts championship-caliber golf club facilities. With the emphasis on continually improving our guests’ experience, our eighteen-hole world-class golf course has been ranked among Canada’s Top 50 public golf courses. Our first-class facility offers a 25,000 sq foot (2,323 sq meters) clubhouse, elegant wedding facilities, a Pro Shop and upscale casual dining at our Butler’s Pub & Grill.

If you are looking to enjoy a relaxing game of golf and improve your health at the same time, contact us today for more information.

5 Pro Tips for Lowering Your Golf Handicap

If you made lowering your golf handicap a New Year’s resolution this year, you are hopefully already well on the way to achieving that goal. However, some people are not always sure where to start. So, here are five key tips you can use to make not only the most of your golf membership, but also lower that handicap.

Hone Your Short Game

Having a good long game is all very well. But, it’s a sharp short game that will keep you strokes ahead of your competition. While the short game does require a lot of technical proficiency, it also depends on you acquiring a good feel for it. Spend more time in the short game practice area and experiment with different shots. In particular (and you probably already know this but it bears repeating) you can never get enough putting practice!

Upgrade Your Equipment – Get Fitted if You Can

Take a look at your clubs, and splash out on fixing and tuning them up a little. Replace those worn grips and damaged shafts, and clean out the grooves. In fact, maybe it’s time for a golf club fitting. Getting the right set of clubs for your swing and body shape will help your game enormously.

Work on Your Stretching and Fitness

Many amateur golfers underestimate the importance of being fit and limber. Golf is a sport after all! So, start a good exercise program, and make sure you do a proper stretch before hitting the course. Focus on your core strength in particular – that’s where the power behind your swing comes from.

Play Alone

Playing the course alone helps you to focus on your own game without distractions. Play when there are few other people on the course and take note of your strengths and weaknesses. Observe your game and try to coach yourself.

Keep Track of the Numbers

Start tracking your game like a rabid sports fan. Take note of the number of fairways you hit, the number of greens you land on, the average number of putts you take on each green, as well as noting where you tend to miss shots on the fairway. Use one of the many apps available. As you keep track of your game, you will see that you start to get a very good grip on your strengths and weaknesses. As you focus on the areas where you need improvement, you will start to shave strokes off your game.

To fast track your improvement even more, sign up for some lessons at the Royal Ashburn Golf Club. Provided you have the will and energy to work on your game, we will get your handicap down in no time. Contact us for more information. 

Valentine’s Day 2020: The Couple That Plays Together, Stays Together!

It’s Valentine’s month again! Have you decided yet what gift you’re going to give to your partner this year? What romantic date have you got planned? It gets hard, as the years go by, to come up with new ideas to make the 14th of February special. Well, if you find yourself unable to think of something, we may have just the thing: join the Royal Ashburn Golf Club Couples League!

Whether you’re both dedicated golfers, both newcomers or 50/50, the Couples League is a great way to improve your game, bond, have fun and get to know other couples in the neighbourhood. It’s more than just golf; played every other Saturday, it runs for ten weeks and each couple league night is a themed occasion with the opportunity to have a wonderful meal, dress up and socialize. 

How Does the Couples League Work?

Each member gets nine holes of golf every second Saturday, together with a power cart and a two-course dinner at Butler’s Pub & Grill. Tee-off is at 3:30 pm. Winning teams receive credits to use in the Pro Shop or at Butler’s. There are also closest-to-the-pin prizes. You will also accumulate participation points for year-end prizes. All you have to do is book 10 days in advance of every League Saturday by contacting the Pro Shop. You can either play against another couple of your choosing or let the Pro Shop pair you at random (a great way to make new friends).

You don’t need to worry about scoring – the staff will take care of this. So, all you need to do is play your game and enjoy. This is a Fun League that is not intended to be too competitive. 

So, give the gift of play this Valentine’s Day – because the couple that plays together stays together. You could also consider a Royal Ashburn Golf Club membership and/or one of our gift certificates. Contact us for more information on how to join the Couples Golf League. 

Foster Young Talent at a Leading Junior Golf Academy

Is your child showing a keen interest in sport? Perhaps he or she spends the afternoon watching The British Open or the PGA Championship with granddad over the weekend? Maybe you are looking for a way in which to encourage him or her to spend more time outdoors rather than perched in front of the gaming console? Either way, there is no better consideration than letting your child join a junior golf academy – just like the one at Royal Ashburn Golf Club!

What is a Junior Golf Academy? 

A junior golf academy is essentially a program that is focused on teaching young kids how to play the incredible game of golf. Not only does it introduce them to the basics (like how to swing, the different types of clubs, and so on), but it also encourages a life-long love for this unique sport – as well as for the great outdoors in general. In a day and age where technology and smart devices are everywhere you look and it is difficult to get your kids to make the most of the simplicity of their childhood, this opportunity is every parent’s dream. 

What Are the Benefits of Joining a Junior Golf Academy? 

The benefits of letting your child join a junior golf academy are practically endless. But, we highlight a few of the main ones below: 

It Offers the Opportunity to Make New Friends 

This is especially true for children who really love sports. Joining a junior golf academy provides them with the chance to meet other kids with similar interests and build lasting friendships. What could be better than finding a close friend with whom you can enjoy a game of golf whenever you want to? Who knows? Friendships like these could last a lifetime! 

It Allows Them to Bond with Family 

Most junior golf programs revolve around a child being coached by a professional and playing together with their peers. However, if the rest of the family is also made up of a few other keen golfers, teaching your child to play the game could lead to a number of new opportunities to bond and play together outside of their coaching sessions. Just think of all the hours of refreshing family fun spent out on the golf course working on your swing together!  

It Ensures That Kids Spend More Time Outdoors

The great outdoors is so underrated these days! Fresh air and a good dose of Vitamin D can work wonders for one’s health and mood. Plus, it is an important part of childhood. It encourages healthier habits and gets the kids away from the lure of technology – at least for a couple of hours at a time! 

It Teaches a Host of Skills 

Many people think that junior golf programs will only teach a child how to play golf, but the truth is that these programs do so much more than that. When learning how to play the game, your child is likely to pick up a variety of other useful skills along the way. For example, they will get better at working with numbers and will constantly be employing and improving their problem-solving skills. Never mind the fact that, as they practice and see a noticeable improvement in their game, their confidence and self-esteem are sure to get a hearty boost too!

Everyone Is Welcome 

Many other sports out there come with an air of exclusivity. Golf, on the other hand, is known to be a fun-filled sport that anyone can take part in. It is a top choice for men, women and children alike, and is played in countries all over the globe. Thanks to the diversity that can be seen within the golfing realm, your child is likely to develop a broader and more open-minded view of the world and all its people. It also obviously teaches the important lesson of ‘practice makes perfect’. 

It Encourages Self-Improvement 

Golf is an individual game, not a team sport. Many parents place a lot of emphasis on team sports so that their child can learn to work well together with their peers. While this is indeed important, we often forget just how essential it is to teach our kids to continue on a journey of improving themselves and their own unique skills. When playing golf, children will learn how to analyze their performance, picking out what they have done well and where they can do better. In doing this, they will also gradually develop helpful self-analysis skills, learn how to receive and deal with constructive criticism and ask for help and advice when they feel they need it. 

It Teaches Good Values 

Golf is traditionally a ‘gentleman’s’ sport. In other words, proper etiquette and values are the keys to playing a good game. Because of this fact, allowing your child to join a junior golf academy will open them up to lessons on how to treat others, as well as how to develop good sportsmanship, determination and patience. 

Golf Boosts Health and Wellness

Fresh air, plenty of exercise and lots of sunshine (do not forget the sunscreen!) – there are many reasons as to why golf is such a healthy part of a child’s lifestyle. While it may not be as intense on the body as some other sports, it is certain to improve a child’s core strength, posture and spinal support, as well as their overall flexibility and fitness. 

Golf Teaches Kids How to Handle Their Emotions

There is no denying that golf can be frustrating at times. When you miss that all-important putt despite focusing to the best of your ability, or when you hit an inaccurate shot, it can lead to a massive influx of difficult emotions. However, golfers learn how to cope with these emotions and handle them in a healthy way. In junior golf programs, kids will have the opportunity to learn from their mistakes, deal with their ‘failures’ with grace, and use their challenges to their advantage in an effort to improve their game. All of this builds emotional intelligence and maturity which can be carried forth into their daily lives. 

Golf May Encourage Kids to Take Part in Other Healthy Activities

If your child starts to show potential on the golf course, they will undoubtedly grow into active intermediate golfers. This often includes adding a number of other healthy activities to their daily routine in an effort to further improve their golfing skills. These activities may include flexibility-enhancing Yoga, core-strengthening Pilates, general fitness and endurance in the form of walking, swimming or running, and strength training in the form of weightlifting.

It Helps with Weight Management

If your child is overweight and you are looking for a way in which to boost weight loss without putting a strain on his or her joints, then golf may be the answer. It offers a low-intensity workout and is so enjoyable it definitely will not even feel like a workout in the first place! Furthermore, golf is also known to teach kids about the importance of proper nutrition and this could lead to them making healthier meal and snack choices, especially as they get older and become more serious about their game. 

Golf is Safe 

Many parents flinch at the thought of their child getting a concussion when playing a rowdy football match, or breaking an arm or a leg in another type of rough-and-tumble sport. Much to their relief, golf is a non-contact sport that will hopefully never lead to a nasty injury. 

Golf is Fun 

Probably most importantly of all is the fact that your child is sure to have the time of their life when learning how to play golf! Our instructors really go the extra mile to make sure that all teaching sessions are fun, relaxed and memorable. 

Why the Royal Ashburn Golf Club Junior Golf Academy? 

The Royal Ashburn Golf Club junior golf academy is a great choice for kids of various ages. We offer junior camps, a junior league, as well as a junior intermediate program.

The junior league is our ‘learn to play’ program and is reserved for children between 7 and 12 years old. It costs $299 +HST and takes place on Saturdays at 9:00 am and Thursdays at 5:30 pm.

Junior Intermediate Golfing Program

Lastly, we also offer access to a junior intermediate golfing program. This program also lasts six weeks and has been specially designed for young golfers from 13 to 15 years old who already have experience on the golf course and want to further improve their game. It also costs $299 +HST and is designed and conducted by Dave Castellan, Director of Instruction, to provide structured coaching with a focus on core fundamentals. The six-week program includes:

      • Three 2-hour sessions on our range and short game area
      • Three 2-hour sessions on course instruction 
      • Full swing technique
      • Short game – putting, pitching, chipping and sand work

Another reason to join the Royal Ashburn Golf Club junior golf academy programs is the fact that all instructors at the RA Golf Academy are trained and certified instructors and are PGA of Canada Golf Professionals.

Here at the Royal Ashburn Golf Club, we are passionate about golf. We believe that golf is a game that your children can play and enjoy for the rest of their lives – it certainly is not reserved for adults!  Not only does it promote a healthy and active lifestyle, but it also teaches core values such as honesty, integrity, patience, sportsmanship and more.

Everything You Need to Know About Ladies’ Golf Leagues at Royal Ashburn

Looking for a new way to get active, improve your golf game and socialize in 2020? Joining a Royal Ashburn league is a great place to start. In particular, we host an excellent ladies’ golf league. Here’s what you need to know to get involved in this league this year.

Who Can Play?

Our ladies’ golf league is open to all ladies who are members of the club, regardless of which membership package they choose. 

How Does It Work?

The league is played every Wednesday from 2 PM onward. It is a 9-hole league, although you can choose to play 14 holes if 9 is too few and 18 is too many. All you have to do is pay your registration fee of $99.95 and then call the Pro Shop to book your tee time. You may book for a group or a single.

As a member, you will automatically get a Golf Canada Gold membership, which will track your handicap and give you incident protection on golf equipment and power carts.

This league is intended as a fun and social event, meaning you don’t need to worry too much about scoring. Simply fill in your numbers as you play and the Pro Shop will do the rest for you. Once you step off the course, a glass of wine and cheese plates will be waiting for you at the clubhouse.

The league works on a two-person blind best ball basis, in which each player is randomly paired with another and the lowest net score on each hole makes up your team score. The random pairing makes the league a great social occasion that enables you to form and develop new friendships each Wednesday.

It isn’t mandatory to play every week. However, the more you participate, the more you will be in the running for our version of the Fed-Ex Cup point race. High participation could make you eligible for a prize at the year-end banquet.

Join our ladies’ golf league and meet new people, get the most out of your membership and improve your game. Contact us for more information.
