59club's ‘Golf Flag Designations of Excellence’ were presented to 29 properties across the UK, Ireland & Europe in a virtual ceremony hosted on Thursday 9th September by Presenter & Broadcaster, Dan Walker.
Rockliffe Hall was one of only 13 venues awarded the highest possible accolade, the Gold Flag Award, for the fifth year running.
The winners are determined by scores collected from an independent visitor panel who evaluate the experience afforded to visiting golfers and prospective members in accordance with 59club’s non-subjective benchmarking criteria. Each venue is judged on performance in the following areas – sales, service, operations, retail, golf course, food & beverage and management.
Callum Nicoll, Director of Golf and Estates at Rockliffe Hall, says: “This is a fantastic achievement for every single member of the Golf team who work incredibly hard to ensure the course conditions, facilities and guest service remain at the highest possible standards. This is now the eighth year in a row that Rockliffe Hall has won a 59club flag status, and the fifth consecutive time we’ve achieved gold. I’m incredibly proud of everyone that their continued hard work has been recognised with this award.”
Designed by Hawtree, the world-renowned course architects, Rockliffe Hall’s 18-hole championship golf course is renowned for being one of the most challenging, and longest, in Europe. Alongside the world class course is a fully stocked Pro Shop, extensive practice facilities and driving range, a luxurious yet relaxed clubhouse serving delicious food, and a dedicated golf services team, including 2 PGA professionals.
