The project, which took over three years to design, plan and build boasts over 1000 sq. metres of practice facility and aims to further enhance the already renowned Hertfordshire club.
Award winning designer James Edwards said “Without doubt, Moor Park Golf Club is now home to one of the finest and most intelligent short game facilities in the Country. We are delighted that a Club as prestigious as Moor Park had the vision and belief to engage EDI and embrace our design. Three particular points set this project apart from the rest; its sheer size with 360 degree approach areas from designated zones, its proximity to the Clubhouse which gives easy access to members and 18 perimeter tees designed to create a unique members short game course & championship venue.”
The Members only short game area opened on Saturday 13th April with complimentary canapes and fizz including a Q&A session from European Tour player and Moor Park Ambassador Callum Shinkwin.
“As a European Tour Professional I am incredibly fortunate to practice and play on the best courses from around the world. I can safely say that the Moor Park short game area is one of the best facilities I have seen and I am incredibly honoured to be a part of its opening today.”
The area gives Members the opportunity to play and practice a selection of shots within 60 yards from different lies with the flexibility to allow multiple Members to use the area without interference. The facility strengthens the already very strong complement of game improvement facilities including a double ended driving range, swing studio and SAM putting lab. Moor Park CEO, Amy Yeates, commented “the short game area is a huge benefit to our Members and one we are very proud of. We are working hard on enhancing the Membership offering at Moor Park and this world class facility is another step in the right direction for our mission to reinstate Moor Park as one of the best private Members clubs in the South East of England”.
