Forge Design Studio were delighted to be invited to the official opening of The Performance Studio at Broadstone Golf Club. We worked closely with the team at Broadstone Golf Club to realise their dream of creating a state of the art indoor training facility within the undercroft of the existing Clubhouse.
The area to the rear of the Club had been undisturbed for 30 years before the guys in the pro shop hatched a plan to utilise the space. We drew up initial plans and liaised with GAP Structural Engineers to produce the fully developed proposals.
After a great deal of hard work by all parties, (and numerous iterations!), the final result was revealed to club members and guests at the Opening Ceremony last Friday. Its an absolutely fantastic facility which will allow the Professional Team to conduct teaching and training all year round as well as giving the opportunity to play the great courses of the world without leaving the comfort of the studio!!
Mike now has no excuse to start next year’s golf season with the same high handicap!!
Mike completed the MacMillan Cancer Support 72 hole golf challenge on Thursday 23rd at Broadstone Golf Club. It was a double whammy as Barry Mutter, one of the other pros in the shop, had completed the task with a variety of partners on Monday 20th. All together we have raised more than £1000 for a great charity, with contributions still being added!
Mike teamed up with son Chris and the Club Captain Mark Dowland for the whole day, with Chris Roberts joining us for the final 36 holes. A great experience with fantastic support from everyone at the club. The weather held (just about!) and the golf was consistent in its inconsistency!!
Plans are already been hatched for next year’s occasion with lots of ideas for a multi-course event.
Mike is joining his son Chris and two other team mates on June 20th to take part in the 72 hole challenge. 4 rounds of golf to be played in a single day is going to be a major challenge and will involve a 4.30am start!
