£2.4m Formby Hall refurbishment first phase underway

Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa is undergoing a £2.4m refurbishment. The work includes redecoration of the restaurant, bar and creation of new loft style bedrooms and an overhaul of the spa.

The venue’s new US-based owners HIG Capital are also improving the golf facilities as part of the investment.

Set in almost 200 acres of parkland, the four-star hotel also boasts a PGA Golf Academy and golf course.

HIG Capital, which bought the resort in December 2015, is phasing in the development work.

Andrew Pyle, general manager at Formby Hall, said: “There’s already been significant investment into the golf side of the resort and behind the scenes at the hotel within the first year of HIG Capital’s ownership, now we’ve moved on to the first phase of refurbishment and expansion.

“The Resort has been a success since it opened in 2008, building a loyal following who use all the Resort’s facilities, and it is time to refresh it and give our guests something new.”

Formby Hall sits on the so-called Golf Coast, near to Southport, but also has a reputation for hosting elite events. 

Pyle said the first phase was on schedule to be completed by the end of May.
