One of Britain's leading golf courses is to receive a cash injection of £300,000 according to an announcement made today. 

The investment is planned for the championship standard, 18 hole golf course at Marriott Manchester Worsley Park Hotel and Country Club and will further improve facilities to benefit members of the club, hotel guests and visitors. 

Funds will be used to develop the ‘state of the art’ drainage system which saves local water supplies by collecting rainwater from the reservoirs on the hotel grounds and using it to keep the greens at their very best at all times of the year.  An all purpose half-way house has been erected, allowing players and observers to take refreshments and rests at the tenth hole while other works will concentrate on aspects such as course wild life and plant life. 

Already renowned for its award winning, environmental management practices, the £300,000 funding for the golf course represents a significant investment into the North West’s leading sporting venue.  A fact of which Andy Salmon, Golf Manager of the hotel, believes local people should be very proud. 

Andy comments, “This is a very exciting time for us.  Developments are set to be rolled out throughout the next few months and golfers will be able to see a real benefit, both to the championship course ad the facilities we have to offer.  We are proud to have a premier sporting facility to rival ant national course, here on our doorstep in the North West.”
