Almarose Hotels & Resorts, the UK’s largest golf resort operator, has reported record breaking number of golfers playing its six venues in the UK following golf’s reopening on May 13 after the relaxation in the Covid-19 lockdown measures.

Almarose Hotels & Resorts manages and operates a range of branded hotels, including QHotels and DoubleTree by Hilton, has seen over 5,000 golfers teeing off across its nine 18-hole courses, which comprise Belton Woods, in Grantham, Lincolnshire; Dunston Hall, in Norwich; Oulton Hall, in Leeds; Slaley Hall, in Hexham, Northumberland; Telford Hotel & Golf Resort, in Shropshire; and DoubleTree by Hilton Forest Pines Spa & Golf Resort, in Brigg.

The CEO of Almarose Hotels & Resorts, Richard Moore, said: “What a week for golf. Our staff have worked so hard in preparing courses and implementing the new ‘Play Safe’ measures, and we are delighted to see so many golfers benefit. Our thanks go out to all parties.

“We estimate golfers at our venues in the past week have walked in the region of 30 million yards and burnt nearly 7 million calories. Just imagine those numbers multiplied across the whole country and the health benefits involved!”
