Shrigley Hall Golf & Country Club near Macclesfield in Cheshire celebrates today (May 29) the opening of a new £3/4 million clubhouse.

Owned by Paramount Hotel Group, the new complex at Shrigley Hall is part of an extensive programme of refurbishment across the Group's nine UK hotels.

Shrigley Hall's head professional Tony Stevens, who played the European Tour from 1984 to 1992, said the new complex made Shrigley one of the most desirable destinations for corporate and club golf in the UK. "With over 500 members and a thriving corporate golf event programme, Shrigley has developed a strong reputation on the golfing scene. The new club house enables us to create more space for large corporate golf events and a real club atmosphere for members."

Reflecting Shrigley Hall Hotel's 4-star rating, the two tier clubhouse is constructed from woodland log. Set on the edge of the wood adjacent to the Hall itself, it provides stunning views across the lake and 18th tee. The development also includes a new Pro-Shop, greenkeepers complex, 30 new buggies and pathway for easy access to different parts of the course.

The changing area has the capacity for up to 120 golfers with ample lockers and showers to cope with major corporate events. The function suite has a bar, dance floor and capacity for 120 guests. It will be available for event dinners and evening functions as well as private parties and club social events.

The new members bar and lounge has relaxed sitting areas with access to the club house veranda. A range of cuisine, meeting the famously high standards of the hotel, will be served throughout the day and up to 9.00pm in the evening.

Shrigley Hall's golf manager, Jason Harney comments: "We're delighted that the new Shrigley club house is open for business, on schedule and in time for the busy spring/summer season. We developed the new complex in answer to considerable demand, particularly from the corporate golf sector, and in order to bring the golfing experience into line with the very high standard of the hotel."

Shrigley's championship course is a par 71 designed by Donald Steel who is a leading advisor to many high profile European ventures including St Andrews Royal and Ancient Golf Club. Shrigley Hall has 150 en-suite rooms and offers excellent leisure facilities including a recently completed new conservatory bar.
