The West Lancashire Golf Club in Blundellsands, Merseyside has unveiled its new look clubhouse following a £1.2 million investment.
Mr. Hamish Ritchie, captain of The Royal & Ancient Golf Club at St Andrews, was guest of honour as he officially launched the clubhouse.
The club, one of the 10 oldest in England, commissioned Nobles Construction to upgrade its existing facilities. The championship standard redevelopment meets twenty first century demands and offers new changing amenities, improved player’s entrance and a substantial extension to the kitchen and function rooms. It also provides a new state-of-the-art professional golf shop.
Renovations also included the installation of a new thermal cladding roof which will help to reduce carbon emissions and cut energy bills.
Tom Dickinson, chairman at West Lancashire Golf Club, said, “Nobles Construction has managed to provide up to date facilities for our members to enjoy while maintaining the historic character and feel of the clubhouse. Striking this balance is so important to our members and we’re delighted with the result.”
The refurbishment provides a comfortable and relaxed 19th hole for visitors and members, while the extended kitchen and function rooms mean the club can cater for and meet ever growing demands and grow the business.
Peter Linford, director at Nobles Construction, said, “It is always gratifying to hand buildings back to their owners and see that their aspirations have been achieved and even surpassed. Our experience in this sector and the continual support from the club ensured we were able to deliver a fantastic end product
“We’ve now renovated two of the most historic golf clubhouses in Sefton and believe our work will serve these clubs well for the next hundred years of their illustrious history.”
Nobles Construction completed the refurbishment of the clubhouse at Royal Birkdale in May 2008.
