We are pleased to be able to announce that an agreement has been reached with the highly acclaimed Lee Westwood Golf School to base their Northern School at High Legh Park Golf Club from September 2016.
It is an honour for us to host this prestigious organisation who have been keen to join us here at High Legh Park Golf Club due to our extensive quality practice facilities, forward thinking philosophy and friendly/welcoming atmosphere. The agreement will enhance our younger membership and hopefully bring through future stars at the club. Many of you will be aware that we have been actively trying to increase golf interest amongst the younger generation in conjunction with England Golf and I am convinced our new alliance with Lee will assist us in this goal.
For those of you who are not aware of the Lee Westwood Golf School~they are a full-time golf based education facility aimed at 16 to 19 year old talented golfers. Many of the youngsters will hopefully join the ranks of our junior membership and attract other local youngsters to play at High Legh Park Golf Club. The school will host between 25-35 golf students who will have classroom and practical related studies. They will carry out practical studies on our new range facilities in a separate area away from the existing covered range and will use the 9-hole academy course only for tuition. Use of the main course will be mid-week only and restricted to an average of only once per week. Therefore, the school will only use between 7 to 9 tee times per week on average and will fit around our existing membership activities.
Lee will visit the school when he is able too and hopefully now he is based in the UK again this will be on a regular basis. The Lee Westwood Golf School will be a great asset to our club and further assists our ambition to be one of the best golf destination in the North of the UK.
