  • Golf Simulator Lounge: Great fun, get some friends together, enjoy some beer, pizza and play the best golf courses in the world right here at The Gailes
  • New Toilets: Not the most sexy topic, but like you we’re so glad to get rid of the old ones we inherited ;-)
  • New GG’s Entrance: New access to GG’s Coffee Shop & Sports Lounge, Driving Range and Golf Academy. Now all are accessible even when the Golf Retail Store is closed.

  • Installation of Top Tracer: State of the art golf fun for every level of golfer!

Mark will take over the store in November and Stuart and the team will still be here with this fantastic new golf store concept
  • Refurbishment and Development of Gym, Studios and Relaxation Area: Floor to ceiling windows, new sound system and full air conditioning. Work in section, moving equipment to Studio 1 as temporary gym while redevelopment work is ongoing (note: some gym equipment may be unavailable at this time)
  • Refurbishment of Wet Spa, Sauna, Steam Room and Shower Facilities: (note: period of closure during works)

As you can see, there is a lot going on and a lot more still to do! We hope you like the investment and improvements so far as we move towards the end of this phase of the development. We will endeavour, as always, to minimise disruption to our members and guests and look forward to the next exciting stage!

Thank you for your patience
Malcolm, Karen and all the team
