Redbourn Golf Club Enters Next Phase of Major Million-Pound Investment Project
The redevelopment – funded by club owner and operator, Burhill Group Limited (BGL) – represents the group’s unwavering dedication to facility improvement and enhanced member and customer experience, while also reflecting a surge in membership numbers at all 10 clubs in recent years. The project at Redbourn began in late 2017, with an initial focus on the overhaul of the club’s bar and restaurant area. The process involved the closure of all clubhouse facilities while the whole area was stripped out and redeveloped. Following the indoor renovation work, Redbourn’s maintenance team set about the creation of a large-scale irrigation lake to the side of the 8th and 10th holes. This has enabled the club to rely exclusively on rainfall and a borehole for its water supply. Since completion in May 2019, all water that has been used to maintain the 27-hole venue has come from those sustainable sources rather than water mains. Less than a year later, the club turned its attention to improving its golf offering, with the installation of globally recognised TrackMan technology on its driving range. The new state-of-the-art facility boasts 20 indoor and six outdoor TrackMan Range bays, allowing up to four players to tee it up at major championship venues, enjoy practice sessions, challenge friends in innovative game modes, or simply enjoy time with family. The new range also features in-bay seating areas that enable guests to order food and drinks direct to their bay. Furthermore, Redbourn took the decision to replace, and make upgrades to all external clubhouse areas, with stylish outdoor furnishings and newly laid patios completed in January this year. Most recently, club management announced the installation of a new, full irrigation system that will run across all 27 holes on the property. Efficient sprinkler heads and computerised programming will allow the greens staff to implement a watering schedule that will improve the playability of the course all year round, further enhancing the member and visitor experience alike. The first two phases of this installation are now complete, with the final phase set to be finished early next year. Steve Brown, General Manager of Redbourn Golf Club, commented: “We are proud to have made such a significant investment into the sustainability and quality of our operation. “The installation of TrackMan Range technology, paired with numerous other club upgrades has increased our footfall and vastly improved our offering.” Guy Riggott, Operations Director, BGL Golf, added: “We are delighted to be continuing our investment into Redbourn Golf Club. We are committed to providing the best experience for our members and visitors, and will continue to ensure this is at the forefront of everything we do.” Located in the rolling Hertfordshire countryside, Redbourn Golf Club offers first class facilities, including two golf courses; an 18-hole main course with lush fairways and true greens, and a 9-hole par-3 course that is ideal for newcomers and experienced golfers looking to hone their short game.
