Built by Sittingbourne-based firm Garden Rooms Kent Ltd, and sponsored by Pentland Homes, the impressive cabin is designed to blend into its surroundings, with a cedar wood wrap and a decking made from a recycled material. Inside, the ceiling features a treeline canopy relief designed to bring a sense of the outdoors, while the hut is kitted out with a new kitchen which will act as a focal point for players before their round begins.

Speaking at the official opening, Canterbury Golf Club’s general manager, Roger Hyder, said: “It’s fantastic news that Pentland Homes has chosen to sponsor our new starter’s cabin. Over the years we’ve invested heavily in the course, as we strive to continually improve our facilities, offering our members an unrivalled experience. The new starters cabin fits in perfectly, and I look forward to seeing many of our members enjoying this new facility. It will be a perfect starting spot for competitions or for members just looking to enjoy a round.”

Karrina Oki, Sales & Marketing Director at Pentland Homes, added: “Pentland Homes is deeply rooted in the Kent community and we have been building high-quality homes here for the past 50 years. We are delighted to sponsor the new cabin at Canterbury, a beautifully maintained course at the heart of the local area, and we look forward to seeing members, visitors and some of our nearby homeowners enjoy the cabin and all that the wider course has to offer.”
