Golf clubs have welcomed the news that people can start playing golf again, albeit with social distancing rules in place.
There was also some very good news for Hurtmore Golf Club in Surrey, which has been confirmed as one of the most popularly reviewed golf courses in 2019.
The rating has been determined by Golfshake, which considers thousands of independent course reviews from its members each year. Members rate the venues they have visited on a variety of categories, including the quality of the layout, condition, welcome, hospitality, and the facilities available.
Hurtmore, which is part of the Hoburne Group, boasts an 18-hole golf course and a state-of-the-art golf simulator. The club has recently refurbished and modernised its clubhouse, with a restaurant open daily and a large outdoor patio area. With its free wi-fi and car parking, Hurtmore is also an ideal venue for business meetings and functions.
Commenting on the rating, Hoburne’s head of golf, James Slade said: “We are delighted to have been recognised by Golfshake and its members. Online reviews have become increasingly relevant in all industries - and golf is no exception. We have invested heavily in the club to improve the golf course and clubhouse and the feedback has been incredibly positive from our members and visitors.
“Like every golf club in the country, we are currently closed but the greenkeeping team is working tirelessly while sticking to strict social distancing and other safe working guidelines to ensure our course is in the best possible condition for everyone to enjoy as and when we can fully re-open.”
