The golfing landscape of London is about to welcome a new era with the upcoming launch of The Inspiration Club on June 1, 2024. 

Described as ‘A Modern Links in the City’ the unique golf course is set to redefine the standards for the 21st Century, offering an unparalleled golfing experience in the heart of London.

“We wanted to ensure that we had the right designer to create our vision and the result is a golf course unlike anything London has ever seen - a modern style links,“ said Director Tony Menai-Davis, “To experience the shapes of the greens and run offs we have here you would normally have to travel to the coast. 

The Inspiration offers the drama of the absolute best courses in the U.K. in sight of the capital.  We are incredibly proud of The Inspiration and cannot wait to open in June.”

Renowned links golf experts Mackenzie & Ebert joined the Menai-Davis team to work on the project in 2020 and their influence can be clearly seen.  The 6610 yard golf course boasts dramatically shaped USGA spec greens, averaging 550 square meters that are seeded with pure distinction bent grass.

Seeding of this quality is only used at a handful of venues and is designed to give the purest roll in golf. To protect the incredible greens an initial investment of over £700,000 has been made in the bunkering alone, further underlining the impact of the links golf specialists.

“This has been an exciting, enjoyable and unique project and, if we have done our job well, then the same should apply to playing the course.  We hope that following a first trip round the course, golfers of all standards will want to return with their friends,” commented Tom Mackenzie.

The Inspiration Club is poised to carry forward the commitment to excellence that has characterised its sister club, The Shire London.  As well as meticulously maintained greens, fairways, and surrounds The Menai-Davis family’s approach to golf fosters an enjoyable, and relaxing atmosphere where everyone is welcome.

Situated conveniently on the A40, just 10 miles from the West End and 5 miles from Junction 16 on the M25, The Inspiration Club is perfectly positioned for golf enthusiasts looking to indulge in a round before or after work in the City.
