DROITWICH Golf Club has invested more than £250,000 in new equipment to maintain the greens and fairways.

The club, based off Ford Lane, has many members in Droitwich, and is holding an open day on Saturday, April 27 with PGA European Tour golf professional and member John Bickerton.

Head greenkeeper, Gary Watkins said: “although a significant amount of the machinery previously used at the club was still in good condition the advances made by manufactures over the last couple of years has been significant which had necessitated new investment which he was delighted that the club had been able to back his recommendations to renew the clubs fleet.”
