The Shire London has announced a £250,000 series of upgrades to its facilities over the next two years.
The only course in the UK to have been designed in full by Seve Ballesteros will see a series of bunker refurbishments and course remodelling works starting this winter, with additional tee boxes on some of its par-3 holes a priority.
The club’s driving range and extensive short game area will both be improved, whilst the putting green – which overlooks the ‘S’-shaped lake on the final hole – will be extended.
Elsewhere, the experience for both members and visitors will be enhanced with a series of updates to clubhouse, function and player facilities for the 2018 season.
Work will also start soon on refurbishments for the club’s changing rooms.
“Our loyal members have shown enormous faith in us since we opened in summer 2007,” said director Ceri Menai-Davis. “Our responsibility to them is to continuously improve the experience of membership at The Shire London, and this new programme of works will be visible proof of that. We also enjoy very strong support from visitors and group golf bookers, so it is vital that we keep on improving all aspects of a day’s golf here.
“Seve’s spectacular original course design will always be the main attraction for golfers of course, but we have enjoyed great success with our social events too and our upgraded clubhouse facilities will make them even more special in the future.”
