A new clubhouse, bar and restaurant will open at Allerton Manor Golf Club in Liverpool this weekend.
The food and drink venue, which was created during a refurbishment programme delivered by local building firm Camel Property Services, will be open to club members and the public alike.
The revamp of the Old Stables has now brought a 68-cover restaurant, a casual bar and terrace, new golf shop and improved changing facilities at the site.
Meanwhile, site operator GreenCircle Estates has also made numerous on-course improvements to Allerton Manor through a partnership with Liverpool City Council, including lengthening the course to a par 72 as part of its bid to secure PGA Championship status.
Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, says: “Contrary to stereotypes, golf is a democratic game on Merseyside, increasingly popular with male and female players of all ages from all communities across the city.
“When we created this partnership at Allerton Manor Golf Club, it was to protect and enhance a green asset in South Liverpool, provide an improved facility for local golfers and return the course to a sustainable and profitable operation contributing to, rather than drawing on, the city’s budget.”
Just two years ago, the council was subsidising every game of golf played at Allerton Manor, but the course is now said to be making money for the local authority.
