Royal Norwich Golf Club’s relocation to a new site at Weston Park looks certain to happen after permission was granted for 1,000 new homes to be built on the existing site by Broadland District Council.
This completes the most significant stage in the process so far, meaning that Royal Norwich will start their journey towards building their exciting new facilities for the future.
Now that permission has been granted, work can be started on Weston Park subject to the Section 106 and Legal Agreements being finalised. Until the new facility opens, Royal Norwich will carry on playing 18 holes at the current Hellesdon site.
“This is an incredibly historic moment for Royal Norwich Golf Club,” remarked general manager Phil Grice. “Our staff, members and committee have worked tirelessly for over a decade to get us to this point. Whilst members are sad that we will be moving, there is also a real excitement in the air as our vision now will become a reality. The Weston Park site is quite spectacular and, with the planned investment into the course and infrastructure, the future now looks bright for Royal Norwich.”
