A FLINTSHIRE golf club is finally being renovated after being three years in the planning.

Situated on Groomsdale Lane, Hawarden Golf Club is undergoing renovations to improve the facilities for members and visitors.

After head green keeper Tom Ison worked his magic to reinvent the beautiful 18-hole course, it was time for the clubhouse to receive the same attention. 

The clubhouse renovation is a huge project; ripping out the flooring, replacing all lighting and knocking down some interior walls. 

The aim is to have large windows and bi-folds looking out at the view before redecorating can commence. There will also be new mood lighting, heating and air conditioning. 

The refurbishment will take approximately seven-weeks to complete with frequent updates being shared on social media.

During this time, the club will be offering temporary bar and food facilities upstairs in their meetings and functions area.


Andrew Errington, chair of the board, says the refurbishment is a culmination of three-years of hard work. 

He said: "The main goal is to reward our membership that has grown from 300 to over 500 in just 3 years (that puts us in the top 10% of clubs in Wales). 

"Our landlords are The Gladstone Estate so we want to give back to the community, we want the local fraternity to learn about us, to join in with us and to enjoy something that is bigger than just golf."
