Bootle begins work on new driving range

3.45pm 22nd March 2021 - Course Development

Work on the construction of a new driving range at Sefton Council’s Bootle Golf Course has begun this week.

After a detailed tendering service, Sefton Council appointed Davies Building & Maintenance as the main contractor to build the new £240,000, 10-bay range at the Liverpool-based venue, which is due to open later this year.

Designed to enhance the facilities on offer at the popular Bootle Golf Course, the new driving range will be floodlit and also includes a dedicated coaching bay.

Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “As well as enhancing the already-popular Bootle Golf Course, this new driving range will help to make golf more accessible and attract new players, and enable existing golfers to improve their game whatever the weather and at any time of the year.

Sefton Council’s Bootle and Southport golf course have closed since January 4 in line with national restrictions, but will re-open next week as the lockdown eases.

Green fees are being held at last year’s prices, which means adult green fees at Bootle start from just £13, with Twilight Tickets from only £8.50. Over-60s can play for £9 from Monday to Friday, while a round for youngsters aged up to 16 is £8.
