The Club appointed Ken Moodie of Creative Golf Design in 2017 as our course architect to consider potential changes to the course design and layout.
Ken is a highly acclaimed architect and has been instrumental in the restoration of many heathland courses such as Alwoodley, Moortown and other Top 100 layouts such as Lindrick. Work on a full course restoration began in 2019. Winter 2019 saw holes 12, 16, and 18 redeveloped, whilst 2020 saw holes 1, 2 & 3 completely renovated.
September 2021 saw us start our biggest project yet to renovate holes 7, 8 & 9 which were ready for the start of the 2022 season.
Over the winter of 2022/23 we have completed the most dramatic changes of any holes to date. Holes 6, 10 & 11 have gone from probably the 3 weakest holes on the course to arguably the best.
With just 6 holes still to renovate over the next two years Ken has really transformed our golf course. Pleasington, once again, is one of the best inland golf courses in Lancashire.
The essence of the plan is to restore the courses’ heathland characteristics, modernise the look and position of the bunkering, whilst making the course a better strategic challenge for the better player, whilst making it a fairer test for the higher handicapper.
