The historic golf course at Selsdon Park will be re launching on 1st April after extensive renovation work. Set in 205 acres of beautiful Surrey countryside, work is in full swing to restore the highly acclaimed course to its former prominence in the golf world.
Renovation began in January and includes green and tee restoration, bunker repair, a programme of woodland management including large scale flower and tree planting and re defining of all fairway and rough lines. New facilities include a practice area and Bob Torrance teaching academy.
All restoration programs are being done in house with the work being overseen by newly appointed golf course manager, Peter Smith. Peter previously worked on the most private course in the UK, Birch Grove, where he was commissioned to restore the complete course after a period of closure and re-establish the facility as one of the best conditioned courses in the UK.
Selsdon Park Golf Club is steeped in history, the course designer J H Taylor was a four time Open winner and founder member of the PGA. The 200 bedroom Selsdon Park Hotel, just 13 miles from the centre of London, has itself benefited from significant investment, over £6million in its facilities to offer the ultimate in luxury hotel accommodation.
Chris Baron, Director of Golf said, “There has been a lot of commitment, hard work and effort to bring the facilities back to the highest of standards, Selsdon Park will be Surrey’s premier golfing venue once again. The team is really looking forward to welcoming golfing guests, both old and new, to Selsdon Park Golf Club to experience what we now have to offer.”
