Pin High Golf Group has announced their acquisition of Traditions Golf Course in West Byfleet, Surrey from Crown Golf, with big investment plans scheduled for the course and clubhouse.
Originally opened in 1999, Traditions was designed by ex Ryder Cup players Peter Allis and Clive Clark. Predominantly operating as a pay and play, this high end course boasts 18 holes of challenging golf in the heartland of Surrey.
Pin High Golf’s Managing Director Tony Healy commented ‘I’m absolutely delighted with this acquisition to the group; and this one feels extra special to me as this was the base for one of my first senior roles within American Golf’. Tony added ‘at that time the course boasted the best greens in Surrey for a public golf course’.
With substantial plans to renovate the bunkers, improve course drainage, upgrade machinery and bring in a whole new fleet of buggies, Traditions will shortly be receiving a remarkable transformation to bring this course back to life. Further investment will also be made into the bar and shop areas, creating a refreshed place to relax and shop for golf essentials after a round on the improved greens.
One of the first priorities Pin High Golf will be tackling is to bring the golf course specification back to its high standard with a new course programme. ‘We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the Club to witness the big changes that will be taking place’ Tony said, ‘we will also be re-branding the club, and look forward to involving the local community in the process’
With all the changes about to commence, a familiar face will also soon be gracing the fairways again as Ex England and Arsenal footballer Ian Wright MBE returns to the course. A friend of Tony Healy and a regular player at the club many years ago, Ian is very excited about returning to the property ‘to take my buddy’s money’ he quipped.
