Golf club to embark on £500k of improvements

Alnwick Castle Golf Club is to invest £500,000 in itself on a new clubhouse, changing facilities and a greenkeepers’ shed, as well as course improvements, partly in order to ‘create new income streams’.

The Duke of Northumberland’s development company, Northumberland Estates, which owns the 114-year-old club, has revealed that the work will begin this November and be completed by late spring 2022.

This comes after the club has seen a rise in membership numbers in recent years.

The building programme will see the construction of a new dual function clubhouse on a new site.

At the same time the golf club committee is planning additional improvements including the possible redesign of two holes and improvements to the greens such as better irrigation and drainage.

Andrew Robson, agent at Northumberland Estates, says the new clubhouse has been carefully designed to provide modern facilities while maintaining a traditional feel. Adjoining it will be the facilities focused on members’ needs and playing visitors, to include a new reception area, changing rooms, shop, and office space.

He added: “Alnwick Castle Golf Club have worked very hard over recent years to increase membership. We very much hope these new facilities will not only assist in attracting new members but will also provide the means to create new income streams through hiring out the improved hospitality areas for social events and functions, bringing more people to the club.”

Rod Henderson, director at Alnwick Castle Golf Club, said: “The club is very excited at the prospect of these improvements.

“In recent years we have increased membership numbers to 330 by introducing a range of membership options and we now have members coming to play from all over the north east as well as those local to Alnwick.”
