The Club Company is delighted to announce the acquisition of Woodbury Park, a prestigious Hotel, Golf and Country Club in Devon.

Situated just outside Exeter in 350 acres of beautiful Devon countryside, Woodbury Park Hotel, Golf and Country Club is a 56-bedroom luxury hotel with a stunning 18 hole Championship Golf Course and a beautiful 9 hole course as well. The site offers state-of-the-art leisure facilities, including gym, studio, tennis courts and spa treatments.

Over the last 12 months, The Club Company have made significant investments within the group:

  • In December 2015, the company acquired Wharton Park Golf & Country Club in Worcestershire.
  • In March of this year, a £2m investment was completed at Castle Royle in Berkshire, including two new children’s pools, adult wet spa, adult-only bar and numerous improvements to the golf course.
  • In August 2016, The Warwickshire’s Health Club saw a £1m investment, including new equipment throughout the gym, a revamp for the fitness studios, and a complete refurbishment of both the family and adult-only bar areas.
  • This was followed in September 2016 by the opening of the new 56-bedroom luxury hotel at The Warwickshire, an investment of £4.5m, which is already proving to be popular with business travellers, families and golf societies.
  • With the acquisition of Woodbury Park, The Club Company now has 12 clubs in their portfolio, all located around the UK.

Commenting on the acquisition, Thierry Delsol, Chief Executive of The Club Company, said: “We are extremely pleased with the acquisition of Woodbury Park Hotel, Golf and Country Club. The site is a perfect addition to our portfolio, as it offers high quality facilities for all the family. This investment demonstrates The Club Company’s desire to expand its portfolio, subject to identifying attractive sites in suitable locations.”


Joe Hammond, General Manager of Woodbury Park, said: “This is an exciting time for Woodbury Park members, customers and employees. I am delighted to be part of this new era for the club, and look forward to working closely with The Club Company.”
