QHotels Celebrate major health boost


One week on from reopening its six golf venues in England, the UK’s largest golf resort operator – Almarose Hotels & Resorts – which manages and operates a range of branded hotels, including QHotels and DoubleTree by Hilton is celebrating a magnificent seven days that has seen smiles return to the fairways and a record number of golfers return to play golf in a safe environment.

Much has been made of the mental health downsides of the lockdown period, and golfers certainly voted with their feet to get back to their beloved sport in the great outdoors, with just under 5,000 teeing off across QHotels’ nine 18-hole courses – managed by Almarose Hotel & Resorts.

The golf courses at the QHotels’ venues include Belton Woods, in Grantham, Lincolnshire; Dunston Hall, in Norwich; Oulton Hall, in Leeds; Slaley Hall, in Hexham, Northumberland; Telford Hotel & Golf Resort, in Shropshire; and DoubleTree by Hilton Forest Pines Spa & Golf Resort, in Brigg.

The CEO of Almarose Hotels & Resorts, Richard Moore, said: “What a week for golf and wellbeing!

“Our staff have worked so hard in preparing courses and implementing the new ‘Play Safe’ measures, and we are delighted to see so many golfers benefit. Our thanks go out to all parties.

“We estimate golfers at our venues in the past week have walked in the region of 30 million yards and burnt nearly 7 million calories. Just imagine those numbers multiplied across the whole country and the health benefits involved!”

With longer days, the strong demand is certainly set to continue and the forthcoming bank holiday weekend is sure to prove a major draw.

“Tee times are currently available for the holiday weekend, however our advice would be to book as early as possible” added Moore.
