Wexham Park unveils new driving range

10.16am 15th December 2020 - Courses

Wexham Park Golf Centre in Buckinghamshire has invested over £500,000 in upgrading the facilities at its driving range, which re-opened on December 2.

The new-look range at the Slough-based venue features 24 undercover bays, eight outdoor bays, a teaching/custom fit room, yardage markers, flags, nets and target pods to aim at. The centre is also planning on installing Inrange shot-tracking technology in Spring 2021.

The build project, led by RB Structures, included the installation of sustainable composite decking and cladding, which was supplied by Composite Prime.

Charles Taylor, sales director at Composite Prime, said: “We’re delighted to have collaborated with RB Structures on the project at Wexham Park Golf Centre. We’re pleased to have been able to supply one of the premier golf clubs in the country with a sustainable, long lasting and low maintenance solution for its new driving range. The project, which is 330 square metres in size, saw almost one million bottle caps being recycled. HD Clad Pro was the perfect component as it is easy to install and comes in a variety of shades with concealed fixings.”

Composite Prime manufactures ethical decking and cladding solutions for commercial and residential settings. By combining FSC 100% certified end of life hardwood timber and recycled HDPE plastics, Composite Prime’s products retain the natural look and feel of timber with the added strength and durability of plastic. For each square meter of decking produced, the equivalent of 3000 plastic bottle caps are recycled.

Sharon Lowthian, general manager at Wexham Golf Driving range, added: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have found a sustainable and attractive product to install at our new driving range. The product provides the perfect solution for us and we’re incredibly happy with the finished project. The cladding looks good and will be enjoyed by our members for years to come.”
