The newest golf club in the UK has opened, with Boundary Lakes Golf Course at the Ageas Bowl staging a grand opening on Monday the 10th of July.
The parkland par 69 course is set against the background of Hampshire Cricket’s home and, complete with USGA standard greens and feature lakes, is set to be launched next week with the course’s construction now complete.
The new addition arrives at the venue which already has a 171-bedroom Hilton hotel, a Sir Ian Botham-inspired BEEFY’S brasserie restaurant, Lakeview Sports Bar and eforea spa.
Off course facilities including Boundary Lakes’ brand new clubhouse and American Golf store are all housed within the luxury Hilton at the Ageas Bowl. Work has been ongoing at the site for over five years, with the opening of the course representing a major landmark in the development of the venue.
The Ageas Bowl Chief Executive, David Mann said: “We’re extremely proud to announce the opening of Boundary Lakes Golf Course. This was a major engineering achievement and we have been working hard on this project for a number of years.
“I would particularly like to thank the course architect Bruce Weller for his design input, our partners at Keltbray who delivered the project and our own greenkeeping staff who have worked tirelessly to present the course in fantastic condition.”
Former England and Hampshire cricketer, Tim Tremlett, has been named as first club captain and hit the opening tee shot at 10:45am at Monday’s launch event, before members are entitled to play from 11am. Boundary Lakes experienced phenomenal demand for both five and seven day membership packages, with a ballot required to select successful applicants. Pay and play green fees at the course begin from just £20.
