Spotlight: Bentham News Feature Article on Wenningdale Leisure Ltd

Wenningdale-Logo-Large-DarkWhat will 2018 bring to Bentham Golf Club, 1922 Bar & Kitchen & Wenningdale Escapes.

As we enter our 9th year as ‘Wenningdale Leisure’ at Bentham Golf Club, we wanted to take this opportunity to share with you what we have planned for the coming year. We hope you’ll all be able to join us for a party or two, make the most of the facilities on your doorstep.

As our fantastic function room gets a good lick of paint this month, softening the walls and bringing character to this building, we’re excited to start another year of events and hosting your special celebrations. There will be more Pilates, personal resilience courses and the even popular Gin & Jazz.

We will be working closely with Bentham and District Dementia Community (you can see an article from them in this edition!) we will be looking to develop sessions for those living with Dementia and their carers, such as sporting memory events, memory walks and luncheon clubs. We also hope to launch our Navigation Trail around Bentham Golf Course, aimed at getting families out and about in fresh air and working together to find a series of clues.

If you are interested in any of these events, then don’t hesitate to contact Isabel Marshall on015242 62455, or write to Bentham Golf Club, Robin Lane High Bentham LA2 7AG, for more information.

Meanwhile on the golf course…

BGC GenericWe’re pleased to say that we have kept the membership increases for 2018 to an absolute minimum, with fees going up by no more than £5 across all the categories. We will also be introducing a Trial Membership, available in March & April, offering 3 months membership to let you try before you buy.

Anyone wishing to become a golfing member this year is welcome to do so now, for the same price and enjoy January and February for no extra cost. You can find out more about Membership at Bentham Golf Club here.

Over the last few years we have worked with member feedback to develop a more extensive golfing calendar and have increased the number of competitions available, including 9 holes competitions (which will now be recognised for handicap purposes), summer league events and team competitions.

Membership not your thing? Well, don’t worry! Just come and have a knock whenever you can. Our 8-bay driving range is open every day, we offer great value green fees throughout the week and anyone is welcome to enjoy our wonderful golf course.

For more information on membership, golf in general or using the driving range, contact Isabel Marshall on 015242 62455 or email

You will have seen the landscape around the golf course evolving considerably over the last 12 months. We’re very excited to open ‘Wenningdale Escapes’, our new luxury lodge development, and will be welcoming the first lodges in March 2018. These will be available for hire along with our bespoke pods so if you ever have friends or family wanting to come and stay but don’t have space to accommodate them, be sure to get in touch!

We wish you all a very Happy New Year.

With very best wishes,

Isabel & all the Team at Wenningdale Leisure.
