Barnham Broom ranked top resort in East of England for golf
The golf team at Barnham Broom is celebrating after being ranked the No. 1 Golf Resort in East of England, by National Club Golfer.
National Club Golfer ranked the best resorts based on factors such as the golf course, accommodation, facilities, and setting – and all the resorts on the list, from 1 to 100, had to earn their place.
Set in 250 acres of Norfolk countryside, on the banks of the river Yare, Barnham Broom Luxury Resort now offers visitors a 46-bedroom hotel, two championship 18-hole golf courses, a driving range, a three-hole academy course, clay tennis courts outside and squash courts inside.
National Club Golfer stated: “The Valley, designed by renowned architect Frank Pennick, is littered with water hazards, and provides a stern test even for the most experienced players. It has hosted European PGA Satellite Tour events and is a long-time fixture on the Norfolk Open rota.
“The Donald Steele-designed Hill course is a slightly more forgiving layout and is perfectly suited for less experienced players. It offers 6,495 yards of wide fairways and magnificent views of the surrounding area.”
The top ranking comes hot on the heels of being honoured at the 13th Annual 59club Service Excellence Awards, widely regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the golf and hospitality industry, in March. The event recognised the finest customer service providers for having achieved the highest standards of excellence across 2022, and Barnham Broom secured a Resort and Members’ Club Silver Flag.
Barnham Broom also recently received an accolade by being placed at the 80th spot in the ‘Today’s Golfer Top 100 Golf Resorts in UK & Ireland’ and came in at 63 in the Top 100 Golf Resorts in Great Britain and Ireland 2023.
Shaun Van Looy, Chief Operating Officer at Barnham Broom Luxury Resort, said of being ranked as the number one Golf Resort in Norfolk: “This is a brilliant achievement to add to our Silver Flag award and Top 100 resort ranking, making Barnham Broom, as a golf resort, truly “multi-award winning”.”
The golf team at Barnham Broom has recently been bolstered by new hires PGA golf coach Darren Scholes and golf retail manager Joe Blackaby.
It’s been reported that the Covid-19 lockdowns have rejuvenated the world of golf. After the initial lockdown began in March 2020, golf courses were one of the first outdoor sporting activities to re-open when measures to were lifted in England, in May 2020.
Golf courses and driving ranges were closed again as restrictions were tightened once more in January 2021. March 2021 saw the final reopening of golf courses and since then, the love of the sport has been on a steady increase.
