Golf course operator Love Golf UK has taken over Stanley Park Golf Course in Blackpool to take the number of clubs under its management to three.

Love Golf UK was first set up in 2019 when it saved Marland Golf Course in Rochdale, and in 2020 it rescued Heaton Park Golf Course in Manchester. Each site operates as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and Love Golf UK says that its focus is on revitalising public golf courses for future generations.

PGA Professional Andrew Terry, director of Love Golf UK, said: “Our vision for Stanley Park includes elevating course conditions, ensuring affordability and fostering accessibility.”

Terry added that Stanley Park will be included in an annual golf pass with four other local venues – Marland, Heaton Park, Towneley Park and Marsden Park. He also said that Love Golf UK is introducing golf to children.

“We are proud to introduce the Love Golf UK Junior Academy in Blackpool, offering free golf coaching and equipment to kids of all ages, along with partnerships with local schools, charities and community groups,” Terry said. “Our junior academy currently sees 1,000 children a year enjoy free golf coaching with provided equipment. 

“In 2024, we are launching the Love Golf Junior Golf Tour for youngsters seeking competitive challenges, supported by sponsorships from Callaway and leading brands. I am passionate about golf, raising the standards of public golf courses, and delivering an exceptional customer experience.”
