Glendale moves into management

12.01am 5th December 2002 - Corporate

Glendale Golf has made a significant move forward by agreeing a 10-year deal to take control of the Edwalton golf courses in Nottinghamshire.

The Worcestershire-based company already maintains ten courses around the country but the Edwalton facility, which is owned by Rushcliffe Borough Council, will be the first it has both maintained and managed.

“It¹s a very exciting project for us,” said Managing Director Neil Simpson. “With our experience of maintaining courses, it’s a natural development to take on the management role and we are very confident this will prove to be a good move.

“The Edwalton facility with its quality par 3 course and very demanding nine holes has been the starting point for a huge percentage of golfers in Nottingham. It’s a very important part of the city’s golf scene and we’re pleased to be entrusted with the role of moving it forward.”

Glendale plans to spend more than £220,000 over the next two years on improving the facilities and Brian Knowles, Rushcliffe’s Leisure Facilities Manager said, “Glendale has some exciting ideas and we see this arrangement as an improvement to the important service that Edwalton offers.”
