A major investment has been announced for Slaley Hall.

Golfers at Slaley Hall can look forward to an improved experience on and off the course from this spring after The QHotels Group unveiled the proposals at the popular Hexham venue.

The major upgrade to the facilities and courses at Slaley Hall will be an initial £330,000 over the next 12 months, with further substantial investment in 2022 and 2023.

The three-year improvement programme will cover all sectors of the resort’s golf-course business and is part of a multi-million-pound investment being made by The QHotels Group at its seven golf venues in England and Scotland.

At the heart of the investment is a major upgrade of the greenkeeping equipment, with Slaley Hall receiving the latest in mowing technology to deliver improved playing surfaces.

Pathways and drainage systems will also be overhauled, while the resort is further improving the golf experience it offers by adding to the fleet of golf buggies.

Richard Moore, group chief executive of The QHotels Group, said: “Golf is a key part of our business and, more than ever before, we are committed to delivering the best experience possible to all our guests and members.

“Following an extended period of lockdowns, more and more people are discovering the many benefits of playing golf and our courses are busier than ever.

"As the UK’s largest golf resort operator, we have a responsibility to providing outstanding facilities on and off the course, and we believe that the investment that we are making over the next three years will help introduce the game to an even bigger audience.”
