Royal Norwich Golf Club has started work on the £4.5 million redevelopment of land nearly eight miles away in Lenwade, where it will relocate.

The site is being redeveloped into what it claims will be one of the region’s outstanding golf venues featuring an 18-hole championship course, an academy course and work on a new clubhouse starting early next year – all of which will be ready by summer 2019.

Peter Todd was recently appointed head of estates at Royal Norwich to oversee the development of the new courses, following roles at Gleneagles and The London Club.

He said: “I knew once I saw the 18th century parkland landscape featuring free draining soils and mature trees that this was going to be a fantastic piece of land to build on, so it’s great to be finally breaking ground on the site and begin work.

“We have a great team in place to deliver an outstanding course and I can’t wait to see it take shape in the coming months and years.”

Earlier this year, the club announced the sale of its Hellesdon course to Persimmon Homes in preparation for its move, following the acquisition of the existing course from Weston Park Golf Club.

The current 18-hole course in Hellesdon will remain open over the next two years.
