Seaford Golf Club had already upgraded its men’s changing rooms, courtesy of Crown, when its lady members knew the time was right to upgrade theirs.
Magnificence across the board
Overlooking a delightful stretch of the East Sussex coastline commanding easterly views of the Seven Sisters and English Channel, Seaford offers one of the south’s finest downland courses.
Founded in 1887, the club attracts thousands of visiting golfers annually, including guests who stay at Dormy House on the first floor of the clubhouse.
Premier provision is key to maintaining popularity for societies and `residents` and Seaford has regularly modernised and extended its clubhouse to now include bar, superb cuisine, lounge and spacious dining.
Crown also helped fit out Dormy House, adding bespoke bedroom timber cupboards and headboards. Now, the once “dull, dismal” ladies changing area is airy, bright and open-plan, featuring American light oak golf bag and holdall lockers positioned to ensure maximum privacy.
A standalone stack of mini lockers stores valuables, while upholstered bench seating matches strikingly stripey carpet tiles. Vanities, mirrors, noticeboards and washroom additions complete the transformation.
“We wanted to move from a traditional locker room to give members and visitors a memorable experience,” says former Lady Captain Nikki Terry, who project managed the work. “Sam Palmer listened to our requirements and returned with a design fitting them perfectly.”
Secretary Lawrence Dennis-Smithers knows Crown well -specifying them in 1996 when refurbishing Addington Palace Golf Club’s changing rooms, then again in 2003 for male and female areas at Highwoods Golf Club.
“Crown deliver a quality product you can trust,” he states, “so why look elsewhere. As ever, they proved very co-operative throughout and the installation team completed the job on time, on budget, with minimal disruption.”
