Burhill Redevelopment On Course

The 5 million redevelopment of the Burhill Golf Club, Walton-on-Thames is well under way as they aim to create the 'total golf and leisure experience'.

The primary focus of the project is the clubhouse, a listed building purchased in 1885 by Sir Edward Cecil Guinness. More than a century later the
club is still owned by the Guinness family, who are hoping to restore the style and elegance of the building.

A second golf course, set against the backdrop of the River Mole, will also
be completed and ready for play by May 2001. Paddy Mitchell, managing
director of Burhill Estates, said: "We are building the club today for
tomorrow and we see these developments as the key to the future of Burhill
Golf Club and are taking every measure necessary to retain the quality that
is synonymous with the club."

There are many exciting elements to the development including the Iveagh
Lounge, which will overlook the 18th green of the new course. The Honours Bar will display the winners of all major club tournaments while the first floor will be fully refurbished with two main banqueting suites. Members of the club will be able to play the new course in May 2001 with society and corporate golf booking from September 2001 with the mansion ready by the end of July.
