Chart Hills to undergo major renovation
Featured News

The Nick Faldo-designed championship course at Chart Hills Golf Club in Kent is to undergo a major renovation following its recent change of ownership.

Since Chart Hills was acquired by Ramac Holdings Ltd in December, an in-house team led by James Cornish and Anthony Tarchetti has been working on a strategy that will see the extensive redevelopment and improvement of the entire 250-acre property.
From mid-to-late July the golf course will be closed to allow green staff and contractors to complete work on all 18 holes, with the renovated Nick Faldo Design course ready for play at the start of the 2021 season, or sooner if growing conditions allow.The first steps taken to elevate the visual and playing aspects of the course include extensive irrigation and sand-capping to the fairways with over 20,000 tonnes of sand. Once seeded, grown and manicured, the new fairways will enable members, guests and visitors to enjoy improved playing surfaces year-round.
During this period, Chart Hills will also be making large-scale changes to the remainder of the club, including the construction of a new driving range, upgraded short game area, additional practice putting green and a refurbished clubhouse.
“It is extremely exciting to see this project get underway”, said Anthony Tarchetti. “The investment that we are making is significant. It is going to take time, but we are confident that the end result will cement Chart Hills’ place among the very best golfing destinations in the South East.”
