Chart Hills Set For Relaunch on 1st June 2021
Following the purchase of Chart Hills Golf Club in December 2019, by Ramac Holdings (owners of Prince’s Golf Club in Sandwich), the venue has embarked on an extensive development strategy which saw the course closed in July 2020. After an intensive year-long redevelopment Chart Hills will officially relaunch on 1st June 2021.
Led by Director of Golf, Anthony Tarchetti, and Course Manager, Neil Lowther, the club has been subject to a total property renovation over the last year. The result is the restoration of a playable, yet challenging layout that will be presented and manicured to championship standards year-round, set among some of the most picturesque countryside in the southeast.
“We have made enormous strides and are hugely proud of the product we will be presenting,” commented Tarchetti.
“While the work has been significant, we absolutely will not rest on our laurels. This is just the beginning of a road of continuous improvement at Chart Hills, with plans already in place to continue developments over the coming years.
“We are extremely excited to welcome our members and their guests back to the club in the coming months.”
Initial planning indicated that a complete redevelopment project would take more than two years to finish, with the hope of a late summer opening in 2022. However, the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic and forced closures due to government restrictions, presented an opportunity to dramatically accelerate the timeframe.
The decision was made to officially close the golf course in July 2020, with no reopening scheduled until all 18-holes had been completely renovated. The focus of the project was to completely relay the fairways to ensure a course that is playable all year-round. There has also been a complete bunker overhaul to manicure all 100+ of Chart Hills’ famous sand traps.
Off the course, the entire venue has been remodelled, with a completely redecorated clubhouse, all-new club shop, modernised bar area, improved car park and signage, and upgraded practice facilities that include a state-of-the-art simulator room.
The full facility, including the striking and vast clubhouse, will be open and fully operational from 1st June.
