Level5 arranged the official launch of Torrance Park Golf Club’s new £1.5 million clubhouse – which is part of a wider development of the local area.
OLD FIRM STARS OPEN TORRANCE PARK GOLF CLUBHOUSE
Rangers legends Walter Smith and Ally McCoist joined Celtic hero Murdo MacLeod at Torrance Park Golf Club today (Wednesday 16 November 2016) to officially open the Club’s new state of the art £1.5 million Clubhouse.
The completion and opening of the new Clubhouse marks an important stage in the evolution of the Course and the broader Torrance Park Mixed-Use Development.
Occupying over 375 acres, the development is located adjacent to Holytown in North Lanarkshire and features the 18 hole USPGA Championship-standard Golf Course – designed by the Internationally renowned Dave Thomas Limited.
The course is now firmly established as one of the top golfing venues in Central Scotland and the new clubhouse, allied to the range of innovative membership packages on offer, will undoubtedly increase membership numbers – which currently stand at 400.
The new Clubhouse is positioned to afford magnificent views over the course and the Clyde Valley towards Glasgow and has an open, modern feel whilst providing a warm welcoming atmosphere for members and visitors – with freshly prepared meals, snacks and a comprehensive choice of beers, wines and spirits.
Other facilities include:
- Secure changing room facilities for male and female golfers
- Shower facilities
- Dining area that doubles as a function area
- Casual bar
- Satellite TV with Sky Sports and BT Sports
- 10% members’ discount if using their membership cards to pay for drinks and food.
Further development plans will see the establishment of a golf driving range and enhanced practice facilities.
The project runs in tandem with ongoing development and improvements on the site where Murray Estates have been working closely with North Lanarkshire Council to develop a masterplan for the surrounding areas.
The vision is to create a new community closely linked to neighbouring areas at Holytown, Brannock and Carfin. A first phase of 270 residential units has been consented and an extensive programme of infrastructure improvements has seen the successful delivery of much-needed quality family housing with Taylor Wimpey onsite with 222 units.
A further 48 units are under offer to another builder and will be available for sale in the summer of 2017.
Master-planning for the next phases of the housing development is well underway and Murray Estates, working closely with their housing partners, are promoting a further 680 houses with this land recently being included as an allocated site in the draft North Lanarkshire Local Development Plan.
