A New Club House for Fynn Valley Golf Club

A New Club House for Fynn Valley Golf Club

Fynn Valley Golf Club Leaps into the 21st Century!

 

Following a successful planning application in the year the club celebrates its 25th Anniversary, Fynn Valley Golf Club are delighted to announce the construction of a modern clubhouse building much more suited to the needs of a modern sports club.

 

The objective is to take Fynn Valley Golf Club forward into the 21st century by providing modern state of the art facilities for members and visitors, complimenting the now well established wooded and beautifully manicured parkland course that has been created.

 

The farm buildings previously used were adequate at the time, but are no longer fit for purpose to continue to grow and expand the interest in the game of golf for all abilities, age and gender.

 

Whilst remaining in the ownership of the founding family since its inception 25 years ago this month, the Club has gained a reputation for progressive thinking. Always accessible to all, not just club members and those with an interest in golf, Fynn Valley’s reputation for a friendly and inclusive environment will be enhanced by the design of its new building.

 

The timber frame and glass single storey building will nestle sympathetically in its new surroundings looking down the first fairway of the 18 hole course.

 

The wrap around terrace will afford wonderful views of golfers commencing their round, whilst the interior will be light and airy with a real sense of warmth and space, complemented by the cosy woodburner in winter.

 

The changing rooms will be accessible to members directly from the car park, whilst visitors will receive a warm welcome in the open plan reception & pro shop area.

 

The Fynn Valley chefs are looking forward to continuing to provide top class food from their new kitchen which will serve the bar & bistro area as well as the spacious multi-purpose function room, which will lend itself beautifully to serving lunches, hosting elegant wedding ceremonies and receptions and catering for all varieties of group and corporate occasions.

 

Once the new building has been completed, the existing club buildings will be converted into residential dwellings situated within a private gated community.

 

Subject to the vagaries of the English climate, the Club hope to welcome you into their new home in the Spring of 2018.

 

FynnValley welcomes any enquiries about this next phase of their club’s development. Please contact Managing Director Tony Tyrrell on 01473 785267.
