By admin May9,2024

The Buckinghamshire Golf Club welcomed VIP guests and members to the grand reopening of its 17th century house on May 3 following an investment of more than £10 million.

The transformation of the historic country estate just 15 miles from Central London 10 miles from Heathrow Airport is part of a major investment to create a prestigious private members’ club on London’s doorstep – and signals plans by the Arora family to develop a portfolio of world class golf venues.

Sanjay Arora, President of The Buckinghamshire and Chief Operating Officer of the Arora Group, said: “This is a dream come true.

We wanted to do something very special here, to bring this beautiful house back to its best and create one of the finest golf estates and contemporary members’ clubs in the world.

Today, with the support of a wonderful team, we have realised that dream and begin an exciting journey here at The Buckinghamshire and beyond, as we seek to grow our golf portfolio.”

Alongside Sanjay Arora for the ribbon cutting was his father Surinder Arora, property and hotel entrepreneur and former co-owner of Wentworth Club, and Chairman of the Board KP Singh who, for five decades, led India’s largest real estate developer DLF and founded DLF Golf & Country Club in Delhi.

As the doors opened at The Buckinghamshire, members were invited to wander through the exquisitely renovated house and explore new luxury amenities, including a stylish contemporary orangery restaurant, wine bar, whisky room, lounges and locker rooms, and seven new bedroom suites.

Following a golf course reconfiguration and the switching of front and back nine holes, the comforts of the Heron’s Bar and patio awaits members, with views over the finishing hole and River Colne, making it the perfect place for post-round drinks and long lunches.

Sanjay Arora reserved special thanks for Kim Partridge, the acclaimed designer who has overseen the transformation of The Buckinghamshire’s interiors.

“Kim has perfectly realised our vision for ‘membership reimagined,’ celebrating the house’s finest classical features while creating relaxed, comfortable, contemporary spaces for our members to enjoy,” said Sanjay Arora.

“While the golf course is the centrepiece of the estate, the house is the heart of our club and whether members are golfing, spending time with family, lunching with friends and business contacts, or spending the day working”

“The house has been designed as a home-from-home in a relaxing environment, surrounded by natural beauty.”

Arora confirmed that further investment was being made in the golf course in 2024/5.

As a world class private members’ club, The Buckinghamshire, which is also home to the Ladies European Tour, is set to become the centrepiece of a growing portfolio of golf clubs and destinations within the Arora Group.

Plans to develop a new golf course at Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa, less than 50 minutes’ north of Central London, have already been approved as part of an official bid to host a future Ryder Cup.
