News: New golf attraction helps to drive Rotherham regeneration


It is the new face of golf, and it is taking shape on the site of what was once one of the UK’s most important coalfields, in Rotherham. Waterfront Golf is a new facility representing a £1m-plus investment in the £135m regeneration project at Manvers in the Dearne Valley. The overall Waterfront development is a project by Anglo-Dutch company TCN UK. It includes a business park, 400-plus homes, a retail centre and the British Canoeing Union’s Olympic training centre at Manvers Lake. Nestling away amidst this exciting new landscape is Waterfront Golf, home to a 32 bay floodlit driving range, specialist short game area, professional shop and sports bar and café – with a superb nine-hole course to be completed next year. The managing director of TCN UK’s northern operations, Stephen Holme said: "It’s a great facility for the area and enhances the attractions of our overall project." Paul Stancliffe, Waterfront's PGA Pro added: "Waterfront will play a big part in this regeneration programme, a stereotypical golf club it is not, our vision is to provide a very relaxed and inviting environment for all to enjoy from established golfers to complete beginners." It also has the honour of being the first golf facility to be awarded the prestigious Golf Mark Award for its commitment and development of junior golf.
