Stapleford Park, a Luxury Country House Hotel in Leicestershire, launched a Golf Academy Membership earlier this year. This unique golf membership offer has recently been enhanced, giving golfers even more reasons to join.

The improved golf academy membership now includes reduced green fees with the option for a game of 9 holes, golfers can now play on weekends and bank holidays from 9 o’clock in the morning, plus they receive a 10% discount on all food and beverages atStaplefordPark.

The par 73 Championship golf course hosted the ISPS Handa Senior Masters in 2010 and 2011, and the Stapleford Park Golf Academy Membership, which costs only £100 from 1st October 2012, offers each member six complimentary green fees to use up to the end of the membership year, 31st March 2012. The complimentary green fees are followed by preferential green fees thereafter and one hour’s complimentary golf tuition with the Stapleford Park’s PGA Golf Pro.

The Golf Academy also entitles members to half price driving range fees and the ability to invite their guests at preferential rates to this Championship golf course in Leicestershire.

“We introduced the Academy Membership to give local golfers the opportunity to play at Stapleford Park without the commitment of a full Country Club Membership. With the current economic climate meaning that everyone is working longer hours and having less free time, we made the decision to open up the inclusive complimentary golf to weekends and also allow Academy Members to obtain official EGU handicaps. By introducing a pay as you play membership category we are hoping to encourage more golfers to take up the game,” commented Richard Alderson, Stapleford Park PGA Golf Pro.

Designed by Donald Steel, the Championship Golf Course at Stapleford Park, Leicestershire is a rare exception. Located in the heart of England, surrounded by stunning Leicestershire countryside, the golf course is set within the delightfully pure Capability Brown landscape of the estate. The course wraps around the heart of the estate in two extended loops, never being more than two holes wide, making golf here reminiscent of the great links courses.

The Championship golf course is not only challenging but it is also amongst one of the finest luxury golf courses in the Midlands. It was selected by the PGA European Seniors Tour to host their golf tournament in 2010 & 2011. The greens and tees are immaculately maintained to the highest Championship standards allowing members and hotel guests the opportunity to play the course throughout the year.

Stapleford Park is also a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
