Stoke Park to re-open for ‘pay and play’ rounds – Golf News

By admin Jun1,2024

Stoke Park, which has been largely closed for the last two years, has provided a major update on its future, with the parkland golf course welcoming back golfers to ‘pay and play’ its historic Harry Colt course from June 8.

The Buckinghamshire-based luxury hotel, golf and country club shut its doors to members in 2021 after it was bought by Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani, who has since invested heavily in the 300-acre estate.

As well as improvements to the golf course, and the opening of a new coaching swing studio in March, renovation plans for the site also include improvements to the Grade I listed historic mansion, the creation of ‘seven-star’ hotel villas, and the construction of a new clubhouse.

A spokesman for the club said: “While we work towards submitting their masterplan for the future of Stoke Park, which includes major upgrades to the existing course, the course has been opened up for golf coaching and special golf events, and the team are now really looking forward to welcoming back general play back on the existing course whilst the future planning process continues.”

Details on how to book a pay-and-play package are available via the venue’s website, stokepark.com

In other moves, Buckinghamshire Council, which owns the freehold of the Stoke Park estate, has granted retrospective planning permission for the conversion of the lower ground floor golf club changing rooms into a commercial kitchen.

The basement changing rooms were fitted out in 1995, however, the club, writing in its planning application, stated that the facilities became ‘too small and inappropriate for modern requirements’ and will be moved to a new location in order to free up space for the creation of a state-of the-art commercial kitchen.

Stoke Park, which will be hosting the annual Boodles tennis tournament from June 25-29, is currently seeking retrospective permission for a new fishpond and pergola which has been built within the grounds for hosting social events.
