As part of an on-going group expenditure programme, the UK’s largest golf resort operator has revealed plans to spend a total of £670,000 this year upgrading a range of facilities at its 10 golf resorts across England and Scotland.
At the centre of the new investment is the £500,000 purchase of a new fleet of greenkeeping equipment to ensure QHotels’ 15 courses are maintained to the highest possible standard all-year round.
In addition, the forward-thinking group is investing £50,000 installing new drainage on the first and 15th holes at Dunston Hall in Norwich; £100,000 on a major renovation of the 18th hole at Forest Pines Hotels & Golf Resort in north Lincolnshire; and around £20,000 upgrading the driving range at Belton Woods in Grantham, including the installation of the latest FlightScope launch monitor technology.
John Angus, group director of golf for QHotels, said: “As the UK’s largest golf resort operator, it is imperative that we continue to invest on a regular basis to keep our golf courses and facilities at the high standard that our members and visitors have come to expect.
“The new greenkeeping equipment has been bought to keep the fleet at the highest possible standard while the work taking place at Forest Pines will give the course the finishing hole it deserves. The new drainage at Dunston Hall will make the course more playable in the winter months while Belton Woods’ driving range will become a high-end practice and tuition facility with the money being spent.”
The new expenditure plans are a further illustration of QHotels’ desire to continue offering the best possible service to golf members, visitors and corporate guests.
As well as spending £2.2m improving the Wi-Fi access and bandwidth across its hotels, an additional £1.1m is being invested on upgrading the hotel at Oulton Hall, while the health and leisure club facilities at Dunston Hall and Forest Pines both underwent six-figure refurbishments last year.
Named AA Hotel Group of the Year in 2014/15, QHotels features a host of prestigious venues in its portfolio including Slaley Hall, Forest Pines, Belton Woods and Mottram Hall.
The multi-award-winning four-star golf group offers tournament and championship-standard courses in 10 unique resort locations across England and Scotland.
