Woodham Golf Club is set to re-open next week after an extensive two-month refurbishment programme.
The course will open on Friday 1st August after it was initially closed down last November when its previous owners, Washington Developments, went into administration.
The new owners, local businessmen Neville and Stephen Hall, now welcome all golfers.
Ernie Wilson (pictured above), a PGA pro who looks after the course, told Aycliffe Today: “The owners were adamant that we only wanted to open it when the course was absolutely spot on and in the best possible condition.
“A tremendous amount of work has gone in to the course, including drainage and a lot of TLC on the greens, while there has also been a refurbishment of the club house and front entrances.
“It’s a new era for Woodham Golf Club and we can’t wait to open the doors again.”
The golf shop will be open from Friday (25th July) when golfers can also pop in to sign up to memberships – fees and green fees are listed below – with the course opening the following Friday.
