Macdonald Portal Hotel Golf & Spa
This April, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts are launching a brand new golf membership package called Access, at Portal’s par-73 Championship Course. Jon Dummett, Group Marketing Manager for Golf explains the merits of this innovative package: “Macdonald Access is a modern twist on traditional membership and aimed at golfers who want a little more flexibility, but want to keep important membership benefits such as competition entry and a handicap. At just £399 per year, the package is within easy reach of golfers wanting access to a top-quality golf course for an affordable price.”
And it seems like they have achieved just that – Macdonald Access membership includes a starter pack of 15 rounds of golf, a bonus fourball voucher to use at one of seven superb Macdonald courses in the UK, and even 12-months Personal Liability golf insurance from their partners Golf Care. Access members can ‘top up’ their membership with extra rounds at any time and can opt to pay a special discounted green fee during off-peak times, which is perfect for a quick nine after work.
Jon Dummett continues: “Those that have played the Championship Course before will appreciate its spectacular location. Set high upon the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge, the Championship Course offers panoramic views across several counties and benefits from free-draining soil and USGA-specification greens, meaning superb playing surfaces all year round.
The course was designed by world-renowned architect Donald Steele, who is responsible for several outstanding layouts in the UK. However, some say he saved his best efforts for Portal’s Championship Course.”
