A £700K investment in a new driving range complex, complete with a flagship Golf Academy, is set to create 25 jobs thanks to a leading golf retailer.
The 10,000 sq. ft American Golf Driving Range on Newchurch Road in Rossendale is due to open in April 2021 where Golf Rossendale Driving and Academy operate, following a record sales year for the golf retailer, despite the challenges to the sector in 2020.
The state-of-the-art site is set to attract regional and national visitors, drawn by its multi-faceted offering including the retailer’s own Golf Academy.
A first-of-its kind, the American Golf Academy will act as a blueprint for all existing and future ranges, offering a unique coaching experience for men and women of all ages and abilities.
Golf Rossendale Driving and Academy posted on Facebook about the investment.
They said: “Golf Rossendale is pleased to announce that we have joined forces with American Golf who are investing £700,000 in the range. The range is currently undergoing a complete refit and will soon have the latest Toptracer technology, a golf shop, bistro and hopefully an adventure golf facility.”
Gary Favell, Chief Executive, of American Golf said: “2020 saw golf’s popularity soar as many discovered the benefits of the socially distanced sport, which allows for whole families to enjoy a day out together in the fresh air”.
“The new American Golf Driving Range in Rossendale is the first of its type in the area and aims to make golf more accessible and inclusive for people of all backgrounds, genders, ages and abilities.”
Project managed by commercial fit out experts BMS London Limited, the cutting edge look and feel of the complex will ensure an engaging and interactive visitor experience, whether young or old, male or female, budding or seasoned on the green.
Design & Build specialist, Craig Lindsay, Managing Director at BMS London Limited said: “Working with American Golf on the design and project management of the Rossendale Driving Range Complex has been incredibly rewarding as it’s really going to set the standard for a truly inclusive, one-of-a kind golfing experience.”
