Michael has been at Asta Golf Course from the beginning of the course being built - Truth be told he's been there since before it was built!
Born and raised at Asta, Michael has assisted his dad Jim in creating, maintaining and growing the course to what it is today.
From an early age, Michael would play golf with his family on the ground that is now the Asta Golf Course and in the 90's Michael would often be seen taking his own children onto the course as his dad did with him.
Michael is fond of a game of golf and through the years has won many competitions and also took part in the famous Tingwall Foy jousting which was held on the ground that is now the course.
Michael can be seen doing the greens-keeping for the course and his daughter Terresa - the third generation of Asta Golf Course assists in the day to day running of the course.
While Michael and Terresa run the course, Asta Golf Course is still very much a family business with two of founder Jim Leask's daughters, running the fortnightly music nights, Jim's son in law running monthly fellowship gatherings and another of Jim's daughters running the winter quiz's held in the clubhouse.
During the Summer months, our cheerful bar maid Marie is there serving drams and if you happen to be there at opening or closing times, you might run into Jim's Grandaughter in-law who takes care of our clubhouse.
Asta Golf Course has never received any external funding and the continued future is entirely dependant on the dedication of all the people who make it what it is today, the visitors, the members, the staff and the family.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you. Asta Golf Course continues to be a relaxing, peaceful Golf Course due to the people who are part of it.
