Pleasington Golf Club, Lancashire, has revealed the latest results of its £1 million course transformation.

The 12-time Open qualifying venue is upgrading its course as part of a long-term ‘Good to Great’ plan.

“This has been an important and exciting journey for the club,” said general manager, Mark Bleasdale. “While the course has always been recognised as an outstanding layout, hosting Open qualifying and prestigious amateur events including the Pleasington Putter for elite amateur women, we wanted to restore its natural character and return it to its very best.

“Now, after major works over the past three winters, including the regeneration of heathland, the course has been transformed.”

The course upgrade has included:

· Making the course visually stronger with new and renovated bunkers

· Creating firmer, faster greens with enhanced drainage and disease resilience

· Strategic design changes making the course fairer to higher handicap players and more challenging for low handicappers and elite golfers.

The ‘Good to Great’ plan aims to make the venue among the best golf courses in the UK, as well as being an inclusive club at the heart of the community, encouraging golf for all and restoring the landscape’s natural environment.
