Caversham Heath Golf Club – already one of the top courses in the south of England – has announced a substantial investment to enhance its growing reputation.

Caversham 012Clubhouse facilities have been improved with the opening of a new state-of-the-art indoor studio and new machinery purchased to upgrade the club’s current fleet.

The Performance Golf Centre has an indoor studio with two putting greens and the most advanced golf simulator for true-to-life virtual golfing. The new machinery includes 4 x greens hand mowers, greens turf iron, fairway mower, semi-rough mower, and bunker rake.

Recently appointed general manager Martin Robinson said: “We have invested quite a substantial sum – £150k – which shows our commitment to improving the club year-on-year.

“The GC2 and Putting Studio has access to 13 of the world’s very best golf courses for members and guests to test themselves. This is available all year round and is ideal for wet days, evening golf, social and corporate events and just for something different to do at the weekend.

“We have an online booking sheet for simulator use at the centre and for custom fitting of clubs and putters, allowing access to the absolute state-of- the- art technology for ensuring members’/guests’ kit is matched to their game.

“The course has come through the winter months in very good condition, and has been praised by both members and visitors.

“Built to exacting USGA standards, it is unusually dry in winter while fully irrigated in summer, and therefore offers dependable year round play in the Reading, Berkshire and Oxfordshire area.

“The course rewards golfers of all levels, from complete novice to a low handicap golfer, and all set in a breathtakingly beautiful heathland setting.”
