Hotel plans for Sandford Springs

Sandford Springs Golf Club has confirmed it will open its doors to a brand new hotel in September 2013.

Construction work on the three-star hotel is scheduled to begin next week and the building will feature 40 spacious twin rooms, a breakfast buffet area and relaxation zone.

The hotel will overlook the 11th green and 12th tee on The Wood course and will be less than 200 yards from the main clubhouse, which will also undergo major refurbishment including new changing rooms and kitchen.

“We are excited and cannot wait for the work to begin; it will be a valuable addition to our club as well as the local community,” said Sandford Springs’ general manager Andrew Wild.

“Throughout the building process we strive to incorporate environmentally responsible practices and have chosen an architectural design in keeping with the landscape in this most beautiful part of England.”

The new Sandford Springs hotel is the latest addition to the Leaderboard Golf Group owned by Paul Gibbons, who opened The Oxfordshire Hotel & Golf Resort - a 50-bedroom state-of-art hotel in Thame.

Sandford Springs Golf Club, in the heart of Watership Down, Hampshire, comprises a 27-hole course, incorporating three very different nine holes: The Lakes, The Park and The Wood.
