A new golf club has been launched at Brocket Hall, near Welwyn Garden City.

Teeing off at the celebrations was Joe Zhou Feng, who is chairman of Brocket Hall UK Ltd which acquired the business of the stately home, country estate and golf club in 2016.

Mr Zhou Feng said: “I am passionate about Brocket Hall’s heritage, and as its new custodian, I am committed to its bright future.

“This relies upon a thriving golf club.

“To this end, the management team has already affected improvements to the golf facilities and introduced a full calendar of golf competitions and exceptional social events.

“It is my hope to one day establish the Melbourne Club as one of the best clubs in England.”

The 18-hole competition, held earlier this month, involved over 100 new members.

It was played over both the Melbourne and Palmerston courses, named in honour of the two British Prime Ministers who once lived at the Hall.

As a nod to Brocket Hall’s illustrious past, the men’s and ladies’ trophies were specially commissioned by Brocket Hall’s managing director Michael Longshaw and feature two steering wheels from Ferraris formerly owned by the current Lord Brocket.
