Priors Hall Golf Course covers 143 acres, is located off Stamford Road near Weldon opened in 1965 and was designed by Fred Hawtree, one of the country’s leading golf course architects. The 18 hole championship course is 6,677 long off the back tees with a par of 72 but this is a challenging course with water hazards and thick rough and the formidable 58 bunkers to punish the wayward ball.

 

Leader of Corby Borough Council, Cllr Tom Beattie, said:

 

‘The Bidders Day is a great opportunity for interested parties to come along and get all the information they need about the process and about the facility.

 

‘Priors Hall Golf Course has been a great asset to the people of Corby for over 50 years and we hope that through the tender process the facility will continue to improve and numbers of both membership and pay as you play visitors will continue to grow.’
