Following the announcement by Prince’s of the acquisition of Chart Hills Golf Club by its owner and operator, Ramac Holdings Ltd., PGA Professional Anthony Tarchetti and the current team are driving the club in the right direction.
Obviously excited on the prospect of a new challenge, Tarchetti said: ‘’I’m very excited and thrilled to be involved with a club and course which in my eyes is one of the best layouts around’.
“The acquisition heralds a new chapter for Chart Hills Golf Club after several years of uncertainty for the club and its members, and I’m very excited about the club’s prospects.
“The vibe at Chart Hills is great and the feedback from the members following the purchase has been very positive. One of my first tasks is to start rebuilding the team at the club, and with their enthusiasm and support, to re-establish the reputation of Chart Hills as one of the country’s top inland golfing destinations.”
Chart Hills, in Biddenden, Kent, sits in the county’s High Weald area and has been lauded nationwide as one of Nick Faldo’s finest designs since opening in 1993.
The club is well-known and loved by the senior management team and owners of Prince’s due to its fine reputation and relatively close proximity to Sandwich Bay. Rob McGuirk, General Manager at Prince’s Golf Club, was Chart Hills’ club champion as a member in 1996.
“The acquisition is a long-awaited move and it’s great that we can finally get going with our grand plans for Chart Hills,” said McGuirk.
“Our aim is to offer golfers not only one of golf’s finest links destinations at Prince’s, but at Chart Hills, one of the best inland golfing experiences as well.
“It’ll take time but that’s why we’ve put Anthony at Chart Hills. He’s gained a wealth of experience of ‘the Prince’s way’ and delivering the highest standards without exception.”
A spokesperson for Ramac Holdings Ltd, said: “We’re delighted to announce this acquisition and see a very bright future ahead for Chart Hills and its members.”
“It’s a club and course that holds a fine modern history and upholds a strong reputation – not just in Kent, but nationally. It’s a long-term project that we’re all thoroughly excited to commence.”
