THE MAJOR refurbishment of a Droitwich golf club has led to six new jobs being created.
The Gaudet Luce Golf Club in Hadzor has seen its restaurant and bar be given a £175,000 revamp which provides the venue with a new-look dining area, modern seating and extended conference area in its two-storey clubhouse.
The six new jobs have been created in catering where the man behind the menu is Trevor Nicely, a former private chef on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island. Among the new roles have been a full-time restaurant supervisor, two new kitchen staff and three part-time waiting staff.
Operations Director Alec Fernihough, who has overseen the development, said he believes it will help encourage more leisure guests and business delegates to the area.
“It’s great that we have been able to bring new jobs to Droitwich and give new opportunities for people looking to gain experience or launch a career in the catering industry.”
He added as well as the 18-hole Phoenix course, which was proving more popular than ever, he hoped the new-look bar and restaurant would attract more non-golfers for weddings and for business conferences.
The new restaurant is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and for Sunday lunch. The bar is also open seven days a week where the bar menu is available.
The revamped menu offers classic dishes using locally-sourced ingredients, with the meat and fish being supplied by Checketts of Ombersley and cheeses coming from Croome Cuisine in Whittington.
