Foxhills, one of the UK’s premiere golf resorts‘ is undergoing an ambitious multi million pound renovation under the guidance of new managing director, Marc Hayton, who assumed that role in January after ten years at Foxhills.
As part of this project:
- Work has begun expanding the hotel on site, increasing the number of rooms from 42 to 70. It is due to be completed in Spring 2006.
- Planning permission is being sought to build a new state-of-the-art Health Club and Spa. Linked to the clubhouse, the spa’s contemporary design will be used to update the elevations of the 70’s clubhouse.
- Plans are to be finalised to build a new 2-storey bar at the rear of the clubhouse with unrivalled views over the championship courses.
- The existing 11 bay driving range is to undergo a renovation.
- The award-winning Manor Restaurant is to be extended with the addition of a 30 cover room with French windows opening onto the terrace.
- Following last year’s £400,000 Toro contract, the club is in the fourth year of a five-year plan to upgrade the layouts and condition of its three golf courses.
- A luxurious new Dormie House has been built on the doorstep of the 1st tee on The Longcross Course.
- Offer members online booking for weekend tee times.
“This year, we plan to undertake more development projects than at any time in the club’s 30-year history,” said Hayton. “It is a huge challenge but, once finished, will consolidate Foxhills‘ reputation as one of the best resorts in Europe.
“I am sure that both our members and visitors to the resort will be impressed with the quality of all the facilities we will have to offer. We have already seen the benefit from the investment on the golf courses with some great feedback already received.”
Foxhills is also about to close its 7-day golf membership. Once the few remaining vacancies are filled, membership will be frozen, and topped up only as and when existing members leave.
