Press Release

Wetherby Golf Club awarded £55,000 of funding from Sport England 

 

Date: 28/10/2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wetherby Golf Club is among 148 local sports projects to secure a share of £10 million of National Lottery funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund.

 

Since 2011, Inspired Facilities has been helping breathe new life into tired community sports facilities and converting existing buildings into venues suitable for grassroots sport.

 

Wetherby Golf Club will receive £55,000 ofNational Lottery funding towards the costs of upgrading the men’s facilities in the club house. The improvements include new toilets and showers, a disabled toilet, a new ladies’ toilet and the complete refurbishment of the male member’s and visitor’s changing rooms.

 

Sport England Property Director, Charles Johnston, said: “The Inspired Facilities Fund has had a huge impact on grassroots sport across the country. Since 2011, we’ve invested £94 million into more than 1,800 projects to improve and refurbish sports clubs and transform non-sporting venues into vibrant community sports clubs. It’s great to see Wetherby Golf Club join the long list of successful clubs to benefit from this fund.”

 

Club Chairman, Ann Kelly said: “We are delighted to have secured this investment, which means we can completely refurbish our men’s changing areas and provide a disabled toilet together with a new ladies toilet. This will ensure that the clubhouse as a whole matches the excellence of our course which is recognised as being one of the best in Yorkshire. It is a cornerstone of our strategy to offer our members and visitors a complete and high quality golfing experience.”

 

Local MP, Alec Shelbrooke, said: “I was more than happy to support Wetherby Golf Club in their application for investment by Sport England. Their success will now enable the facilities in the clubhouse, some of which are over 50 years old, to be modernised, not only for the benefit of the members of the golf club but also for the many members of the local community who attend functions at the clubhouse. I am also pleased that the golf club will now be providing a disabled facility. The grant will enable this already popular venue to continue to build on its appeal in the area and become an even greater asset in the heart of our community.”

 

Many more communities are set to benefit from the hugely popular fund with the latest round of the Inspired Facilities now open. Community and voluntary organisations, councils and schools can bid for a share of £20 million to help  upgrade facilities that can be unattractive, expensive to run and difficult to maintain, and to convert existing non-sporting buildings into venues that are suitable for grassroots sport.

 

Applying for funding has never been easier. Based on feedback from previous applicants, the Inspired Facilities Fund is now an open programme which means projects can submit applications as soon as they are ready rather than being restricted by a specific deadline.
