Centurion Club opens for play

One of the most eagerly-awaited new courses in England was unveiled when the Centurion Club near St Albans opened for play today.

The Club’s 7,064-yard course has created so much interest that membership sales are already ahead of target and that is only likely to accelerate now the Club is open for business.

“Today is a proud day for all of us,” said managing director Scott Evans, who, together with chairman Graham Wildish and Dutch business men Bert Pronk and André Hendriks, purchased the property three years ago with the intention of turning it into one of the leading private members’ clubs in the south east of England.

“Over the last few months, the weather has not been conducive to putting the finishing touches to a golf course but everyone has worked very hard and we’re delighted with the results.

“We’ve also been very pleased with the feedback we have been receiving since our membership sales office opened last October.

“Interest in the Club is very high and membership continues to build at a pace. We always said that our location would be one of our biggest plus points and that has been borne out by the fact that we’ve been attracting members from north and central London, Middlesex and all over Hertfordshire.”

The new course meanders through woodland and over parkland and provides golfers with breath-taking views over the scenic Hertfordshire countryside.

Each hole has its own individual character while the par-5 18th hole is destined to become regarded as one of the most memorable finishing holes in golf. The Club is currently offering three different memberships categories: Senate, Centurion and Corporate.

Prospective members can contact the Club on 01442 510 520 to arrange a guided tour or visit www.centurionclub.co.uk for more information.
