A Leicestershire golf club is looking to expand after submitting a plan to build a new 152-bedroom hotel, complete with a leisure and spa complex, within its grounds.

The owners of the Forest Hill Golf and Country Club in Botcheston are looking to capitalise on the demand for hotel accommodation during golf competitions, weddings and other events with the creation of the new building, which will be developed on the site of a redundant nine-hole course. Sparsis Leisure Ltd submitted the planning proposal to Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council planners for The Club at Forest Hill, in March.

If given the green light, the scheme would create over 50 jobs and appeal to golfers and non-golfers alike. The new hotel would see a 5.5-acre golf course to the south of the existing clubhouse transformed to make way for the new development.
