Abbey Hill Golf Centre invest £30,000 in new golf shop
March 8, 2012

Abbey Hill Golf Centre has further enhanced its facilities following a £30,000 investment to create a brand new golf shop.

This latest injection takes the total investment enjoyed by Abbey Hill - part of Burhill Golf & Leisure, the UK's leading golf course owner and operator - to more than £800,000 in one year following the opening of Pirate Island, MK's first adventure golf facility, last October.

This investment has helped Abbey Hill to increase revenue with a 10% rise in people using the 21-bay covered and floodlit driving range and the Par-3 Short Course, since the opening of Pirate Island Adventure Golf - a course based around mini golf with players requiring only a putter to navigate their ball around an 18-hole course littered with cunning pirate-themed obstructions .

Now, the old shop has been completely gutted and a new, larger retail space has been opened in its place, giving visitors to the centre more choice than ever before and completing the construction of the modern complex.

Gordon Forster, General Manager of Abbey Hill Golf Centre, said: "We are experiencing growth around the whole facility. Turnover in the new Coffee Bar is starting to increase quite a lot, which I believe is down to the new modern style clubhouse along with free WiFi making it far more attractive to people who would not normally think about coming to a golf complex for a drink or bite to eat.

"The previous retail outlet was beginning to look a little out-dated when compared to the rest of the centre - with the new coffee shop, snack bar and of course Pirate Island.

"We have now brought that up to date and more in line with the rest of our facility and offer golfers more choice when they're looking for new equipment, clothing and accessories."

Staffed by expert PGA Professionals and stocking the latest golf equipment from the sport's leading brands - such as TaylorMade, PING, Cobra, Callaway and clothing from Puma and Nike - golfers of Milton Keyes will find everything they need.
