Hazel Grove proud to be awarded national honour

Cheshire club beat off 200 clubs to win prestigious Golf Club of the Year gong

Hazel Grove Golf Club received the prestigious ‘Golf Club of the Year’ award from England Golf.

The Cheshire club was founded in 1913 and is home to 18-holes of golf, as well as extensive off-course facilities. Following two years that have been interrupted by the pandemic, the club are delighted to receive the award, which 200 other clubs applied for.

James Rowlands, the club manager and head PGA Professional, who has been at the club for ten years, had this to say regarding the success.

“We got the title by application and we then demonstrated that we offer equality and diversity, and work with local community groups such as the Stroke Association. We are Safe Golf accredited and have worked hard to achieve the ‘Women in Golf Charter’ by offering ladies a clear pathway into the club through coaching and mentoring.

“We also highlighted many projects that our fantastic volunteers have completed improving the clubhouse and course over the past 12 months.

“The awards ceremony was virtual on the EGU YouTube channel and we organised a members’ event to celebrate being a finalist and then we only went and won with ecstatic celebrations.”

While Rowlands understands the enormity of the achievement, he insists the club won’t rest on its laurels.

Hazel Grove chairman Mick Jones added: “We are extremely proud to receive this award from England Golf.

“It is real recognition of the huge efforts and commitment put in by all our employees, members, volunteers and in particular the Club’s Working Party, James Rowlands, our Club Manager, and the Management Board team over the past year to continually improve our club.

“Hazel Grove is on a real high at the moment.”

The course was designed by Alister MacKenzie of Augusta National fame.
