Recently formed golf club consultancy business Legacy Golf Advisors has been appointed to manage Charleton Golf Club in Fife, Scotland.
The Bonde family, owners of the Charleton Estate, are embarking on a development plan for the estate and growing the golf business is key to this. LGA will be working alongside the current team at Charleton to offer management support across all departments, focusing on increasing membership numbers, sales, marketing, and agronomy.
Charleton Golf Club, a par-71 championship parkland course with commanding views of Bass Rock and the Firth of Forth, was opened by President George Bush Snr in 1994. The club is situated just 15 miles from St Andrews. The clubhouse suffered a devastating fire in May 2020, and the onset of the pandemic proved a real challenge for the Estate. However, the appointment of LGA, alongside the development plans for 14 eco-lodges and a new clubhouse, is the start of a new era for Charleton. The developments are all scheduled to be finished in time for the 2022 Open Championship in St Andrews.
Michael Bonde commented: “Since meeting with LGA in 2020, it was evident that the team’s expertise and experience are unparalleled. It was a very easy decision for us at Charleton to appoint LGA to manage our golf offering, and we very much look forward to working with them on developing an exciting future for our Estate.”
Stuart Gillett, founding partner at Legacy Golf Advisors, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for LGA to help the Estate grow Charleton Golf Club and deliver on what is undoubtedly a club with huge potential in the heart of the golfing mecca that is Fife. We very much look forward to working with the Bonde family and all the staff at Charleton to help grow the business and improve the golf offering in a long term, sustainable manner.”
