Golfers visiting Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, will benefit from
a series of course upgrades at five of its UK venues, following a
£550,000 investment, designed to further enhance playing conditions
and the customer experience.
Highlighting the group's on-going commitment to ensuring the
courses remain in prime condition throughout the year, a number of
enhancements, including bunker renovation, greens project works and
pathway redevelopment, will be completed by the end of 2016, while
each venue also has a new fleet of course maintenance vehicles.
Golf course upgrades have been made at Macdonald
Linden Hall Golf & Country Club, Northumberland, Macdonald Hill Valley Hotel,
Golf & Spa, Shropshire, Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa, Cheshire,
Macdonald Cardrona Hotel,
Golf & Spa, Peebles and Macdonald Aviemore Resort, Highlands, home of Spey
Valley Golf Course, which hosts the annual SSE Scottish Hydro
Challenge on the European Challenge Tour.
Keith Pickard, Group Director of Golf and Health & Fitness
at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, said: "We want every golfer to
experience course conditions and service like they were playing in
a professional event.
"We are confident our course upgrades will help us showcase all
of the Macdonald Hotels & Resorts courses in their best
condition for the 2016/2017 season and beyond, ensuring they are
must-play courses for visiting golfers."
The latest investment in the five venues follows the £1 million
development of the new clubhouse at Macdonald Aviemore Resort in 2013 and the £10
million renovations in its hotels throughout 2015 as part of the
group's commitment to providing luxury accommodation to all
visitors. The renovations included refurbished bedrooms,
restaurants and leisure facilities with further investment planned
in the future.
Keith Pickard added, "The ongoing development of Macdonald
Hotels & Resorts demonstrates that we continue to meet the
exacting standards of today's golfer and positions all of our golf
courses as leading venues within the market."
