One of Herefordshire’s best known and oldest golf clubs, established in 1896, was recently sold to new owners. RRA architects was appointed to carry out a feasibility study of how the tired club house could be remodelled and refurbished to provide up to date facilities, improve the flow of the building and maximise the commercial viability of the venture.
Client:Herefordshire Golf Club
Status:Carried out in 2020
RRA’s scheme sought to reuse the existing structure to minimise unnecessary costs, whilst reconfiguring the space to provide a multi-use venue. These days Golf Clubs find it hard to be financially viable when relying on golfers alone. Therefore, the business needs to attract other regular customers such as diners, walkers and cyclists. In addition, the venue needs to be flexible for use as a up-to-date business centre, conference venue and wedding destination.
We hope some of our ideas will assist the new owners in realising their ambitions for all the future patrons to enjoy.
