Tewkesbury Park Stands Out as Winter Golf Venue
Golf courses across the west of England had to content with horrible conditions during last weekend, but that nonetheless didn't prevent Tewkesbury Park from remaining fully open on 18 main greens without restriction, emphasising its status as one of the best venues for winter golf.
To their members’ delight, and despite 8mm of rain on Saturday alone, Head Greenkeeper Paul Hathaway and his team delivered the region’s best-kept golf course without having to resort to temporary greens.
Nearby, golfers at other clubs faced limited play while their golf courses were given time to recover.
Tewkesbury, near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, has recorded 61mm of rain so far this month, leading to restrictions and closures at several local golf courses due to waterlogged fairways and greens.
“Tewkesbury Park members want the maximum bang for their buck” said Hathaway, “and expect their golf course to stay beautiful through the winter, so that’s what we give them.
“No golfer likes playing on temporary greens, and many of our members like to take a golf buggy too, particularly when the weather is bad.
“During the off-season our ability to offer a golf course with no restrictions for the majority of the winter is a stand-out advantage for us compared with other clubs for miles around, I feel, and the fact that we can also offer high-class accommodation, dining and leisure facilities makes this place pretty special.”
