Enterprising Willow Valley Golf & Country Club is introducing a stay and play late scheme, following the successful conclusion of an accommodation agreement with the adjacent Days Inn chain, located at Hartshead Moor.

This latest all inclusive package to be introduced by the Club, allows members or visitors to stay over at a reduced rate and play the all-weather floodlit academy course until 10 pm, rain or shine.

Ideal for dark winter nights, the academy course is open every day and provides a fantastic opportunity for business personnel to get away from it all and practice throughout the season for only £4 per player.  Alternatively, the new service allows golfers to play the north and south courses until dark.

Accommodation provided at the Days Inn is all en-suite and is available from as little as £17.50 per person, based on two people sharing with a group discount when booking ten or more rooms.  As part of the service, Willow Valley is offering a full English breakfast between 7.30 am and 11.30 for the special price of just £3.20.

Located within easy walking distance of the club’s impressive facilities, the aim of the new service is to allow golfers to enjoy their game long into the evening and relax in the knowledge that they don’t have to journey home.

Central to Willow Valley ‘stay and play’ plan is its three hole floodlit range which is a scaled down version of the club’s bigger courses and can be played in around one hour.  The specially designed range is screened from the two bigger courses giving golfers privacy and thus avoiding the often intimidating nature of a normal golf course.

Club professional Kieran O’Brien says: “Our aim at Willow Valley is to provide a total golfing experience and the introduction of the new stay and play scheme, builds on this strategy.  Now, with accommodation next to the course we can truly say that when you book a package at Willow Valley, everything is taken care of.”

Willow Valley boasts a total of three courses in all.  The highly challenging south course has been designed to top international standards and includes water hazards, sharp dog-legs and impressive island greens.  Alternatively, golfers can choose the gentler nine hole North Course, which can be played quicker.  These, together with the floodlit academy and practice range aims to provide the most comprehensive package of golfing facilities in the North of England.
