In the worst economic conditions for many years, Whitefield Golf Club near Manchester is delighted to report that this will be one the best financial years in their history with a record number of visitors and a large influx of new members.

A major flood has recently forced part of the clubhouse to be temporarily closed, but during this time the restaurant / bar and locker rooms have remained open. The refurbished clubhouse will be fully functional on 1st November. The course and Pro Shop have been unaffected and have been open for business throughout.

Whitefield Golf Club was established in 1932 and is one of the best and most challenging courses in the local area. Green fees during October are £15 during the week and £20 at weekend.

In early 2011, Whitefield Golf Club announced an exclusive retail and tuition partnership with new golf retail business, Golf Authority.

Keith Robinson, Chief Executive of Golf Authority commented: “We are delighted to be partnered with Whitefield during our first season in business, and have seen amazing numbers through the Pro Shop given the desperate economic climate. Personally, I look forward to working with WGC for many years to come, and building on the success of 2011.”

Golf Authority operates retail and tuition for Golf Clubs, and is currently looking to expand operations in the North West. Any golf club, but especially those currently without a shop or professional, should contact Keith Robinson directly for an innovative business solution.
