It was 30 years ago, in November 1988, when 360 Golf (known as Barrelfield Golf back then), received their first instruction in the golf business. It was to develop and manage Clandon Regis Golf Club for a private investor. They have since been involved in over 120 projects, not only in the UK, but also in Europe, Africa and India.

“We are delighted to have been in the golf business for so many years and to have worked on some great projects. We have been involved in creating some of the finest modern golf clubs and also saving some others that had fallen on hard times. We have met some great people along the way,” says Mel Thomas, co-founder of

360 Golf.

“Although 360 works in all aspects of golf,” he continued, “we have gained a pretty good reputation for turning the fortunes of golf businesses around and for being associated with successful ‘high-end’ clubs. Initially, most of our projects were for investors, proprietary clubs and facilities, but in recent years a great deal of our work has been on behalf of both private members’ clubs needing to modernise and adapt to today’s needs and banks, seeking solutions

and guidance.”

360 Golf co-founder, Robert Clive confirms, “We love being involved in the creation of new projects, but to assist clubs and facilities in today’s tough market is equally rewarding. Although we are probably best known in the golf industry for being involved with Queenwood and Beaverbrook and for helping the members to buy back Loch Lomond, we are very proud of our reputation for helping existing Clubs to achieve financial stability.”

Robert and Mel play a ‘hands-on role’ in all projects. 360 Golf has however expanded in recent years by adding new team members and associates in order to manage the wide range of enquiries and projects and to take the company forward for the next 30 years!
