Chilwell Manor Golf Club became a Golf Roots Centre in August 2018. This followed our close working relationship with local schools (and the wider community) being recognised by the Golf Foundation. This accreditation was also supported by England Golf and Nottinghamshire Junior Golf.
In order to improve our practice facilities for the wider community, we successfully applied for Notts. County Council Local Improvement Funding which was awarded in late 2018. The practice ground, itself, is now nearing completion and this has meant we have been able to install two undercover canopies for practising in inclement weather - particularly useful in not having to cancel pre-arranged events with young people. We have also been able to create raise target areas and a bespoke bunker for a variety of bunker shots.
During this time of construction, we have been grateful for the support of local companies and the volunteer labour provided by club members. Local companies have helped us reclaim land and provided materials and equipment which otherwise would have made the project impossible to achieve.
We now look forward to working with schools even further in promoting the sport of golf. Many events are planned for the practice ground in school time, and younger people in the wider community make use of the facilities in the evening and weekends. We have a thriving junior section in the club in which young golfers, parents and club staff collaborate to provide the best possible experience for them.
