The host venue of the annual Farmfoods' British Par 3 Championship, Nailcote Hall has recently opened its new ‘Champions Pavilion’ clubhouse.
The Farmfoods' British Par 3 Championship regularly welcomes a host of top golfers including Sam Torrance, Paul Lawrie and Ian Woosnam and they will be able to enjoy the championship in style with the ongoing renovations happening at Nailcote Hall.
The Clubhouse is part of a combined development with Nailcote Hall extending its current hotel offering by a further 10 luxury bedrooms which are now open for business.
The clubhouse was officially opened by Tony Jacklin, two-time Major winner and former Ryder Cup Captain, who will be hosting the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship this August for the eighth year running.

“As host of the event, I’m extremely pleased to see this new clubhouse. It’s long overdue and goes a long way towards us making the Championship bigger and better.” Said Jacklin
The new facilities include ladies' and men's changing rooms, a pro shop, dining for up to 60 people, plus a balcony with spectacular views of the Cromwell Course and the 10th hole.
There is also ‘Charley's Bar’ named after the Ladies' European No. 1 and 2014 Order of Merit winner Charley Hull. The opening of the clubhouse was attended by the golfing star’s parents Dave and Bassa Hull.

Nailcote Hall’s owner, Rick Cressman commented: "Charley Hull has played in the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship for the last eight years and she is pleased to have the bar named after her. Let's hope lots more young ladies follow her lead in the future and appreciate the value of playing a great Par 3 course.”
"It's been a long time coming, but after over 20 years in the making, the golf facilities here at the Hall will give everyone who plays here an experience to enjoy from start to finish."
