Notts country club opens new £2m boutique hotel expansion after high year one trading figures

Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club has now opened new bedrooms at The Residence, as part of a £2m extension following an impressive first year of business.

The site, which is owned by Alan Hardy, has added 12 new bedrooms to its offering, increasing the number of rooms at The Residence to 30.

The extension was prompted after the hotel maintained 90% occupancy within its first 12 months of trading after only opening in April 2016.

The idea was for The Residence to bring a substantial uplift in weddings bookings at the golf and country club, which has been owned by Hardy since 2010.

Upon takeover, he spent £1m on transforming space on the clubhouse’s first-floor into a function room, while another £1m was invested into the golf course, including new greens, tees and water features.

The Residence followed, with the first 18 rooms created within a former greenkeeper’s shed in 2016 and 2017, in a £1.5m scheme. Now the 12 new bedrooms have been added.

Other areas of the club, including the clubhouse and the golf course itself, are also part of the expansion.

A spa is also on the agenda, which Hardy has previously said will be the ‘final piece in the jigsaw’.

Speaking to the Nottingham Post, Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club director Bill Mackenzie said: “The owner has had a long term ambition over the last few years to make it the best experience for golfers before and after they play.

“He wants to give them the best facilities for eating and drinking, and there will be a brand new spa, state-of-the-art club shop and a brand new entrance as well.”
