Investment plan announced for Oulton Hall

Golfers at  Oulton Hall can look forward to an improved experience on and off the course from this spring after The Q Hotels Group unveiled a significant investment in the popular Leeds venue over the next three years.

The UK’s largest golf resort operator will be rolling out a major upgrade to the facilities and courses at Oulton Hall worth an initial £350,000 over the next 12 months, with further substantial investment to follow in 2022 and 2023.

The three-year improvement programme will cover all sectors of the resort’s golf-course business and is part of a multi-million-pound investment being made by The Q Hotels Group at its seven golf venues in England and Scotland.

At the heart of the investment is a major upgrade of the greenkeeping equipment, with Oulton Hall receiving the latest in mowing technology to deliver improved playing surfaces.

Bunkers, pathways and drainage systems will also be overhauled, while the resort is further improving the golf experience it offers by adding to the fleet of golf buggies available to its golf members and visitors.

Away from the fairways, golfers can practice using improved driving-range facilities, while the resort’s pro shop will be given a fresh new look and upgraded with new fixtures and fittings.

Richard Moore, group chief executive of The Q Hotels Group, said: “Golf is a key part of our business and, more than ever before, we are committed to delivering the best experience possible to all our guests and members.

“Following an extended period of lockdowns, more and more people are discovering the many benefits of playing golf and our courses are busier than ever. As the UK’s largest golf resort operator, we have a responsibility to providing outstanding facilities on and off the course, and we believe that the investment that we are making over the next three years will help introduce the game to an even bigger audience.”

Oulton Hall features 27 holes designed by leading golf course architect Dave Thomas and outstanding practice facilities plus a golf academy and  performance centre.

The Claret Jug course restaurant is the ideal place to re-energise after a long day on the course. whilst its unique 18th-century former family mansion is the perfect choice for a hotel, with landscaped gardens, sweeping spiral staircases and a state-of-the-art spa.
