The QHotels Group has underlined its long-term commitment to golf by announcing a new multi-million-pound investment across its golf resorts over the next three years.
The UK’s largest golf resort operator will be rolling out an upgrade to its facilities and courses worth £2m at its seven golf venues in England and Scotland over the next 12 months, with further significant investment to follow in 2022 and 2023.
The three-year improvement programme will cover all sectors of The QHotels Group’s golf-course business, with the renovation work set to start this spring.
At the heart of the investment is a major upgrade of the greenkeeping equipment, with each resort receiving the latest in mowing technology to deliver improved playing surfaces on all of its acclaimed courses.
Bunkers, pathways and drainage systems at each venue will also be overhauled in the next 12 months, while The QHotelsGroup is further improving the golf experience it offers by adding to the fleet of golf buggies available at every resort.
Away from the fairways, golfers can practice using improved driving-range facilities while all of the resorts’ pro shops are being given a fresh new look and upgraded with new fixtures and fittings.
Richard Moore, group chief executive of The QHotels Group, said: “Golf is a key part of our business and, more than ever before, we are committed to delivering the best experience possible to all our guests and members.
“Following an extended period of lockdowns, more and more people are discovering the many benefits of playing golf and our courses are busier than ever. As the UK’s largest golf resort operator, we have a responsibility to providing outstanding facilities on and off the course, and we believe that the investment that we are making over the next three years will help introduce the game to an even bigger audience.”
The QHotels Group manages seven top golf resorts in England and Scotland: Belton Woods, in Grantham, Lincolnshire; Dunston Hall, in Norwich; Oulton Hall, Leeds; Slaley Hall, in Hexham, Northumberland; Telford Hotel & Golf Resort, in Shropshire; DoubleTree by Hilton Forest Pines Spa & Golf Resort, in Brigg; and DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort.
