Glendale Golf installs sedum roof on restaurant

Glendale Golf has opened a restaurant with a living roof at one of its courses in Lancashire.

Duxbury Park Golf Club's clubhouse reopened last week following a development project that included installing a sedum roof.

The clubhouse in Chorley, which now boasts a new restaurant called Nineteen Duxbury Park, was opened last Thursday (16 October) by Chorley Borough Council leader Peter Goldsworthy and Glendale's parent company Parkwood Holdings chief executive Tony Hewitt.

The 75-seat restaurant was developed as part of Glendale Golf's plans to improve facilities for visitors to the public course.

The sedum roof is expected to improve the building's thermal performance, as well as being aesthetically pleasing. The new restaurant also includes renewable European larch cladding.

A Glendale representative said: "It is a totally different side of things and it is about creating accessible, quality golf facilities without people having to go to a private club."

The restaurant will open in the evening as well as the day, and new head chef Dan Rawstron will focus on locally sourced ingredients.

Nineteen Duxbury Park is located within a cluster of 19th-century buildings housing Glendale Managed Services' head offices.

Glendale looks after another seven golf courses across the UK, including at Royal Parks-managed Richmond Park.

Richmond Park Golf Club is also set for redevelopment and a revised scheme to include a smaller clubhouse is due for submission in 2009. A consultation process will take place before the planning application is submitted.
