Despite seeing almost 50% of 2013’s total rainfall in the last three months, course closures across De Vere resorts have fallen to a record low. The improved rates are as a result of sterling work from the skilled teams of greenkeepers and investment.

Over the past 18 months, De Vere Hotels & Resorts has invested significant amounts of money into its leading portfolio of championship golf courses throughout the UK; these investments are now paying dividends.

Statistics recorded by De Vere show that there has been almost half of the total 2013 rainfall over the past three months, however the numbers of course closures across De Vere’s resorts have significantly reduced year-on-year. These improved closure rates can be attributed to the sterling work of the greenkeepers at each of the nine resorts, including the award-winning Steve Cram at Slaley Hall, along with the significant investments into drainage, machinery and pathways; which have not only improved the pristine standards of the golf courses, but also keeps them open for more golfers, all year round. This provides better value for money for all members and guests, providing enhanced golfing experiences, safe in the knowledge that their booking is likely to be honoured no matter what the conditions.
