Carden Park is strengthening its reputation as England’s Best Golf hotel with the announcement of a 3-year strategic investment programme aimed at helping golfers perfect their game as well as attracting a new generation of golfers.
The 1000-acre estate will invest in the world’s best ball tracking technology which is used by professional golfers for analysing trajectory, the launch angle, speed and direction. In addition, the Estate will be remodelling driving range bays into teaching bays for custom fitting of golf clubs and coaching. Alongside this Carden Park will continue its upgrades to the Club House having completed the refurbishment of the Pro Shop.
Many of the developments will be overseen by the newly appointed Golf Business Manager Josh Dhallu who will be responsible for all aspects of golf operations. Josh joined from Wychwood Park Hotel in South Cheshire and has been playing golf since he was 8 years old. Josh earned a scholarship at a Golf Academy in Edinburgh and graduated with a degree in sports science.
Josh says, “This is an exciting opportunity to help grow golf in the region especially igniting the next generation of golfers. Introducing this new ball radar technology will open up a pathway for young golfers to access the sport and the wealth of knowledge available from our pros”
“Our new golfing academy coming in early 2020 will expand our driving range offering and allow golfers to be custom fitted using the latest technology”
The investment into the golf team at Carden Park includes welcoming a new club junior pro, Rhian Barton along with two new golf coordinators John Findlater.
Rhian Barton is a 19-year-old professional who has just competed in her first Ladies European Tour Access Series event in the Terre Blanche ladies open 2019 in France. She will be available for expert lessons and coaching to golfers of all levels.
Carden Park’s General Manager Hamish Ferguson commented: “We were delighted to welcome all three new appointments to our golfing community in June. We are committed to providing an outstanding golfing experience for our members and visitors and to being one of the best golfing destinations not only in the North West, but the whole of the UK.”
Carden Park has recently been nominated for England’s Best Golf Course and England’s Best Golf Hotel at the renowned World Golf Awards, demonstrating that international experts continue to see it as providing one of England’s very best golfing experiences.
