STYAL Golf Club has been setting standards with its on-course facilities for more than two decades.

Now, however, an exciting rebrand of the club house means a heightening of the Styal experience when your round has finished.

With new cladding on the outside teamed with soft furnishing and increased seating internally, there is an all-new feel to the place.

Glynn Traynor, the club’s director of golf, says the changes have given the club a “vibrant” feel.

“The catering part of the club has been taken over by Chris Leigh as leaseholder of food and beverage, who has 30 years’ experience in the hospitality industry and we now have waitress service and fresh food is prepared daily.

“The new team have extended opening hours for both the restaurant and bar and quickly created a vibrant atmosphere at the club with the clubhouse rebranded as the Styal ‘Clubhaus’.

“Both members and visitors can now enjoy some excellent hospitality as well as all the other special featured that we have at Styal.”
