The Greenkeeping and Estate teams, headed by Jon Wyer and Davy Cuthbertson, won the coveted title of Greenkeeper of the Year at the 59Club Awards at The Belfry on Monday night (27th February). The golf course has also been awarded Gold Flag Status, reinforcing Rockliffe as one of the top venues in the Golfing Industry alongside Gleneagles, The Grove, The Emirates and Dubai Creek.
On top of that, Rockliffe Hall has been named the Number One golf resort in the UK and Number Three in Europe by Leadingcourses.com. Released annually, this go-to list combines the rating from Leadingcourses.com for the golf facility and the rating for the hotel from Booking.com.
Eamonn Elliott, Chief Executive at Rockliffe Hall, says: “This is great news for Rockliffe Hall. Our Golf team works tirelessly to be the best and provide the ultimate facilities. To win these three awards in such close succession is a fabulous achievement. Rockliffe Hall has only been open for 7 years and we’re beating off stiff competition from well-established golf clubs and resorts that have been round for many decades.”
Designed by Hawtree, the world-renowned course architects, Rockliffe Hall’s 18 hole championship golf course is renowned for being one of the most challenging, and longest, in Europe. Alongside the exceptional course is a fully stocked Pro Shop, extensive practice facilities and driving range, a luxurious yet relaxed clubhouse serving delicious food, and a top quality golf services team, including 3 PGA professionals.
