Golf developer Tony Menai Davis, owner of the UK's only Seve Ballesteros-designed course at The Shire in Hertfordshire, has opened the West London Golf Centre and is planning further nine and 18-hole courses in the Northolt area.
Les Ferdinand, one of only seven footballers to score 150 Premier League goals, and broadcaster Trevor Nelson attended the centre's opening near South Ruislip, where American Golf has a superstore and coach Scott Cranfield hosts an academy.
The centre also features a 300-yard driving range and by the autumn of 2013 will have a nine-hole, 3,500 yard course winding through mature parkland with several water hazards.
A further 18-hole inland links will open by 2016, transforming a 170-acre site near RAF Northolt. A further course in north London will be created shortly afterwards.
Said Menai Davis, who involves his family in all his projects: “The West London Golf Centre is another piece in the jigsaw. We’ve been planning to develop the old Lime Trees site for a number of years and it all came together in 2012.
“Our aim is to provide the finest golf practice facility in west London, and I think people will love what we’ve done with the accompanying nine-hole course when it opens next year.”
