FORMBY Hall Golf Re­sort And Spa has been given the green light to trans­form into a ‘world-class des­ti­na­tion’ from Sefton Coun­cil.

The huge ren­o­va­tion works will see the con­struc­tion of a new two-storey golf club­house and event space with ca­pac­ity for 300 guests, ex­tended bar and restau­rant fa­cil­i­ties, a new re­cep­tion build­ing, a re­con­fig­ured leisure club, a new dou­ble-storey spa plus four lake­side eco‐lodges.

The new re­fur­bish­ment comes just a year af­ter own­ers spent mil­lions of pounds on a huge re­fit.

They say the new fa­cil­i­ties and lay­out will place Formby Hall firmly on the map as one of the best golf, spa and leisure re­sorts in Eng­land.

Di­rec­tor of CS Ho­tel So­lu­tions, Christo­pher King, said: “We are con­fi­dent that these re­de­vel­op­ment plans will not only re­po­si­tion the re­sort as a world-class des­ti­na­tion, it will also at­tract both new busi­ness and an in­crease in tourism to the re­gion as a whole.”

Guests will be able to en­joy a ‘state of the art’ spa nes­tled along­side one of the re­sort’s lakes, with a de­sign in­tended to make it feel as though the prop­erty is ‘float­ing on wa­ter’.

The spa will com­prise 12 treat­ment rooms, sev­eral re­lax­ation, an ex­ten­sive suite of ther­mal ex­pe­ri­ences, in­door and out­door vi­tal­ity pools and hot tubs, in­ter­nal and al­fresco din­ing, and an ex­ten­sive ex­ter­nal ter­race with sunken fire pits and lux­ury day beds.

Sefton Coun­cil Cab­i­net Mem­ber Plan­ning and Build­ing Con­trol Cllr Daren Vei­d­man said: “This phase of in­vest­ment has the po­ten­tial to sig­nif­i­cantly en­hance the rep­u­ta­tion of the Formby re­sort, build upon Sefton’s grow­ing tourism econ­omy and in par­tic­u­lar the ‘Golf Coast’ and we look for­ward to work­ing with them to make these ex­cit­ing plans a re­al­ity.

“It re­ally re­in­forces that Sefton is open for busi­ness.”
