Regent Park Golf Centre in Bolton has opened its refurbished clubhouse, No.19, which forms part of a £3.5m investment in the north-west facility.
The opening ceremony for the impressive new building took place on May 20 and was attended by the town’s mayor, Bolton MP Chris Green, invited guests and members of the public. Guests were treated to authentic tapas created by the club’s two Spanish chefs.
With stunning views over the 18th green, No.19 is open to both golfers and non-golfers, offering a perfect space for eating, drinking and socialising, with space for 160 diners.
The £500,000 redevelopment of the clubhouse is Regent Park’s latest investment in modernising and widening its appeal. The company has invested over £3.5m to date and has earmarked a further £1m for further development over the next 12 months.
Robin Day, Regent Park’s Managing Director, commented: “Our commitment has always been to invest in improving the facilities and adding new fun and welcoming facilities for the public in order to widen the game’s appeal and push its growth as a sport.
“Given the recent trends in golf nationally and the sad closures of three public golf courses in the Northwest in recent months, the team at Regent Park is committed to bucking the trend and has a formula that certainly seems to be working.”
Regent Park’s 18-hole course was designed by James Braid and first opened in 1932. It is run as a pay-and-play facility, with focus on inclusivity and local community engagement. The venue also boasts a 20-bay floodlit driving range ,a 9-hole Par 3 Academy Course, and family-friendly Footgolf Course.
