club has managed to stay with its head above the water, and the competition, by
keeping its golf course afloat.
investment of £200,000 was made last winter to ensure that the golf course would
stand up to the worst the British weather could throw at it, which has meant that
its members and visiting golfers have not suffered in light of the torrential
winter presented us with some major opportunities and it is wonderful to see all
the hard work and investment paying off”, says Andy Salmon, Golf Operations Manager
at Worsley Park. “At a time when many courses throughout the UK are closed, if
not flooded, it is rewarding to be able to inform golfers that the course is open.”

installed to combat the infamous Manchester climate and additional work is planned
for Spring 2001 to make further improvements.
investment plans include a £76,000 project to construct a USGA specification short
game practice area, headed by one of the country’s leading PGA Professionals David
Screeton, who will be on site to offer expert tuition.
