Carr Golf Services is teed up to run Spawell
CARR Golf Services, the country's largest golf course operator, has been picked to operate the Spawell Golf Centre in Dublin. The decision means Carr now operates a dozen golf courses across Ireland.
The Spawell Golf Centre, one of the largest in Ireland, emerged from receivership with Carr Golf & Power League assuming the leisure assets on the 30-acre site.
The operator will now upgrade the golf centre which has a 60-bay two-tiered driving range, an 18-hole short course, putting green, squash courts, large meeting space and a retail shop. The company also operates eight shops and a tee time booking portal. Carr Golf Services commercial director Ed Pettit said the move will give the operator more scale.
"Carr Golf venues will facilitate an estimated 275,000 golfers in 2012. People like the fact we are a strong company with a qualified team of 40 people, with 20 years experience, and are focused on providing solutions for clients and customers in this challenging industry," Mr Pettit added.
