Work on an extension to the driving range at Derbyshire golf, hotel and leisure complex Morley Hayes has moved to the next phase.

The construction of nine new bays is now underway, and the second phase of the redevelopment work will also include the addition of a dedicated area for wheelchair golfers and new teaching facilities for East Midlands Golf Academy.

Phase two of the project follows extensive renovation works to expand the golf provision at Morley Hayes including the addition of new bays, the creation of 18 more parking spaces and better disabled access.

The first phase of the redevelopment, completed last year, also included the construction of the new Tower Café.

Andrew Allsop, managing director of Morley Hayes, said: “We’re really excited to be making further improvements to our driving range, which is very popular with golfing enthusiasts and families.

“Our new power tees, rugby posts and light-up targets have been a real success, resulting in a significant increase in the number of golfers using our facilities.

“Adding eight new bays to the driving range and the new EMGA teaching facilities will complement the facilities we already have at Morley Hayes, including fantastic restaurants, a luxury four-star hotel and two golf courses.”
