BRIGHT FUTURE FOR PRESTWICH

Lancashire Life - - GOLF LIFE -

PRESTWICH Golf Club is un­der­go­ing a ma­jor course de­vel­op­ment which should be com­pleted in early 2020 bring­ing dra­matic im­prove­ments to their at­trac­tive course and en­hanc­ing the club­house.

Pear­son said: ‘While the course re­struc­tur­ing is tak­ing place we are re­duc­ing to nine holes but the sacrifice will be well worth it. The course work is ahead of sched­ule and is now 30-35 per cent com­pleted. We want to cre­ate something very spe­cial. We are hope­ful that with the im­prove­ments to the course we will en­cour­age new mem­bers and vis­i­tors.’

Head green­keeper Chris Hard­ing added: ‘The de­vel­op­ment is pro­gress­ing very well and our ar­chi­tect Paul Thomas has given us some fan­tas­tic ideas and al­ter­ations which will help us dras­ti­cally im­prove the lay­out.

‘We will add some strong par 3s a good par 5 and one of the most in­ter­est­ing 18th greens in the area.’
