Chelsea Pensioners love the new Huxley putting green

HUXLEY GOLF was recently commissioned to help create a new social and leisure area at The Royal Hospital Chelsea, home for over 300 retired British soldiers.

As part of an ongoing commitment to ensuring the best possible service provision for residents, The Royal Hospital Chelsea asked Huxley Golf to design and install an outdoor all-weather putting green. The aim was to create a facility that would be safe and accessible for Chelsea Pensioners all year round. It comes with nine holes and a fringe that surrounds the surface.

“The Chelsea Pensioners are really pleased with their new putting green,” explained Andy Hickling, director of estates, facilities and quartermaster at The Royal Hospital Chelsea. “There are limited outdoor activities for our Pensioners so this has been a huge hit. Indeed, one or two of our residents use it daily and we have already held our inaugural golf competition.”
