Temple Golf Club redesigned its membership options last year and introduced a new Lifestyle membership. After six months the Club has attracted 70 new members and the affordable, flexible and family-friendly scheme for today’s golfer is proving a great success.

Temple will now focus its energies on revitalising its already famous course and has two strategies for this:

First, the Club is fortunate enough to count renowned golf architect Donald Steel amongst its friends and Donald has advised on plans to refresh a number of its holes. Temple is in good company as Donald has advised every single Open Championship venue. Second, Temple has recruited Ben Kebby as the new Course Manager. Ben is a rising star with first class experience at Sunningdale and The Berkshire as well as a stint at Royal Melbourne. He has most recently been the Deputy Course Manager at Joyenval a 36 hole championship complex just west of Paris.

Ben, a perfectionist by nature, will define his time at Temple by “rediscovering the ethos of Willie Park Jnr, the original Temple course designer, by presenting an outstanding course with firm, fast and true greens with the ambition of Temple joining the top 100 golf courses in England”.

The Club believes that by bringing together Donald Steel’s extensive knowledge and sage advice with Ben Kebby’s passion and energy, the golfing experience at Temple will move to a new higher level.
