Golf Kingdom in Essex, one of the leading UK family golf and leisure parks, has officially re-opened under American Golf ownership with a £750,000 overhaul of facilities, including a new e-sports simulator room, revamped sports bar and extended retail and custom fitting space.
Appealing to all ages and types of golfer, the Chadwell Heath-based complex, which was acquired by American Golf in January, will become the leisure and retail group’s flagship site and supports its ambition to further widen the appeal of the sport.
The newly-refurbished leisure complex features a wide range of facilities, including an 18-hole course, 25-bay driving range with Toptracer technology, an 18-hole adventure course and Footgolf, as well as new-look retail store. A new e-sports simulator room will add a whole new dimension to the game – with game modes to let players hone their skills, as well as creative options which add a family-friendly element to the sport.
A range of new dining options are also available with the opening of the new Italian-American themed Il Corso sports bar and lounge, serving pizzas, snacks and a selection of drinks, both in the restaurant and direct to driving range bays. Large TVs will show major sporting events and visitors can make the most of the summer months with a new outdoor terrace with table service.
Speaking at the official opening, American Golf CEO Gary Favell said: “Golf Kingdom is the perfect addition to our leisure portfolio with a range of first-class facilities that really set the standard for our future vision of what a golf and leisure complex should offer its members and visitors. Golf has experienced a huge surge in popularity over the past 12-18 months and we look forward to welcoming members and visitors to show them just how much fun a day out at Golf Kingdom can be.”
Family memberships are available from £69.50 per month and solo memberships from £59.50, both of which come with unlimited use of the range and golf course. Annual family passes for adventure and footgolf, plus party packages for children, teens and adults are also available.
