Golf Course to be expanded by four extra holes during 2012
Golf Club's course is set to be expanded by an extra four holes
winter weather during recent weeks has enabled work on constructing
the new holes to get underway on land next to Brean Leisure Park
and the extra holes are on schedule to open next summer.
Head Greenkeeper Robin Williams, who has overseen the extension,
said this week he hopes the new holes could even even get their
first test at the club's annual pro celebrity tournament in May.
two PGA Professionals, David Haines and Andrew March, have designed
the new holes and are looking forward to seeing them in use.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "For those people who havent
played at Brean since before the last change in 2009 they will
struggle to recognise it now.
constant feedback we are getting from visitors is how much they
enjoy the new challenges served up for them. The club is indebted
to the House family for their ongoing support and investment into
the improvement being made at Brean Golf Club."
added: "Brean may not be the longest course around, but it
serves up a challenge to all standards of golfer, from beginner
to professional. Once the course changeover is in place the whole
project will be completed by a new clubhouse away from its current
location and nearer to what will be the new 18th green."
Despite a poor financial year for many golf clubs, Brean has bucked
the trend and 2011 saw more players play at Brean and the membership
grew slightly. For more details, call 01278 752111.
