The British Open inspires raft of golfers to sign up at QHotels’ golf resorts

Golf was once viewed as a hobby for affluent men escaping the post retirement boredom, however after a scorching July and the buzz of The British Open, QHotels’ five golf resorts have been inundated with bookings and enquiries to hit the fairways. 

What’s more, the group’s golf hotels have seen a 300% increase in the number of juniors playing (aged 16 – 28), which they put down to 25 year old Rory McIlroy inspiring a nation of young golfers when he won The Championship. Dubbed the ‘Rory effect’, this is a trend QHotels has seen across all five of its championship golf hotels across the UK, demonstrating the growing demand of the game.  

John Angus, Regional General Manager at QHotels, said: “It has been a really exciting month for all five of our resorts – the atmosphere has been electric. The players’ enthusiasm for the game, coupled with their competitiveness and the warm weather has given our golf guests the opportunity to have some perfect summer fun guided by our experienced golf professionals.”  

He continued: “Our golf teams are so passionate about the game and it really is great to see their passion and dedication shine through in welcoming and inspiring both our long standing and new golf visitors.”  

He added: “Since The British Open, not only have we seen lots of new players coming to play but we’re seeing people make a weekend of it, with a surge in enquiries for residential golf in August which is now well ahead of last year.”

QHotels has five outstanding golf resorts across its UK collection including; Aldwark Manor Golf & Spa Hotel in the breath-taking Vale of York, Forest Pines Hotel & Golf Resort near Lincolnshire, The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort, near Glasgow, Telford Hotel and Golf Resort, near Shropshire and Hellidon Lakes Golf & Spa Hotel in Northamptonshire. Each resort also has a putting green, a driving range, a fully stocked pro shop and Golf Professionals on hand offering tips, advice and master classes.

QHotels has a whole range of flexible membership packages to suit all ages, budgets and abilities from junior memberships and 5 day membership through to joint memberships and corporate rates for business.
