New club 'bucks the trend'

Latest addition to golf in London area is gearing up for its launch

IN difficult economic times, the number of new golf facilities appearing across the UK is limited. But the Centurion Club near St Albans, due to open in July this year, is bucking the trend with an innovative and exciting offering in terms of both course and membership.

The team behind this notable new golf development has spotted an opportunity, a gap in the market in this attractive part of Hertfordshire.

“We believe the site has huge potential due to its location on the outskirts of North London,” said chairman Graham Wildish.

It’s certainly an impressive venue and with all the holes built this will be a course to rival some of the finest inland layouts in the London area.

Set over rolling terrain, through mature forest and past four major water hazards, this is a track that blends modern design with aspects of the traditional southern English inland course.

The eclectic and striking short holes stand out, as does the spectacular 18th. It’s a sprawling par-5 with a lake protecting the right side of the green and the clubhouse looking down upon it.

Another way the Centurion Club will aim to stand apart is through their membership offering. Centurion will be a private club for members and guests, but there will be a wide range of membership categories to provide maximum flexibility: from full seven day, to midweek corporate options.

It’s an ambitious project but the ingredients suggest Centurion will be a success: a distinctive course, excellent location and a modern take on membership.

The membership office at the Centurion Club is now open and guided tours of the facilities can be booked via centurionclub.co.uk or 01442 216112.
