Club swings to action over nine-hole golf academy - NEW COMMENT

A sports club in Gloucestershire has submitted plans to build a new playing facility.

Lilley Brook Golf Club, based on Cirencester Road in Charlton Kings, has applied to Cheltenham Borough Council to re-profile and re-contour an existing practice facility to create a mini nine-hole golf academy mainly for juniors and beginners.

According to the planning application, the academy would provide a safe practice area away from the main course for members, improve the standard of play, help the long-term maintenance of the course and promote the sport to beginners.

The application also states that by introducing an academy, players on the main course would not be obstructed by coaches running lessons.

The proposed improvement works include importing 100,000 cubic metres of suitable processed fill material over a period of 18 months.

A previous planning application was declined at the end of last year.

This is ground breaking in so far as its vision and Lilley Brook should be congratulated in pushing ahead with this proposal, as surely all of Cheltenham can benefit.
