Driving range upgrade at Castle Point Golf Course

February 2021

2021 will see the unveiling of a new driving range experience at Castle Point Golf Course. The £100,000 project is part of Glendale Golf’s investment into major improvements at their six golf centres.

Castle Point’s General Manager Brad Wellman explains: “We saw a huge surge in demand for golf in 2020 and we expect the same again this year, when the lockdown restrictions are eventually lifted. Driving ranges are vital in helping newcomers experience golf for the first time, as well as a place for regulars to improve.”

Brad continues: “We’ve made some massive steps forward with the quality of our golf course in the last couple of years. We’re now turning our attention to the driving range, which has always had bags of potential. We’re about to start a major project to upgrade the range, including increasing the number of bays and the construction of a brand new short game area. We feel this will put Castle Point on the map as one of the best all-round golfing destinations in Essex.”

Work is due to start in March and will include:

  • Extension of the existing range building, doubling the number of bays.
  • Replacement powerful LED floodlights, offering night time golf.
  • New pathway providing well-lit access to the range.
  • New ball dispenser featuring contactless payments.
  • Upgraded mats and bay dividers.
  • Short game area including chipping green and bunkers.
  • Replacement barrier netting.

This project is just part of Glendale Golf’s commitment to providing an even better experience for our community of golfers. Find out more about how you can Reconnect Through Golf in 2021:
