Improvements to the Pryors Hayes golf course are still continuing two and half years after the new owners, Tim & Richard Barnes bought the club.
Initial developments concentrated on improving the drainage, and remedial action on greens, bunkers and tees, and this was following by the building of several new tees that have lengthened, and enhanced the approach to, a number of the fairways. The latest development is again aimed at lengthening the course but in this instance has involved the removal of a hedge and the building of a complete new green for the first hole. The members still have to wait a little longer to experience the result of this development but the accompanying photograph gives a dramatic view of the scale of the work involved.This has been achieved without significantly disturbing the members current golfing experience of the surrounding holes.
While these development and been taking place, the surrounding environment has not been neglected. One example is the beautiful display of wild meadow flowers behind the 14th green.
