Hertfordshire golf course reveals “stunning” new restaurant refurbishment


North Yorkshire based design consultancy Rachel McLane Ltd has given a “stunning” new contemporary look and environmental focus to the interior design of the restaurant at The Hertsmere, Elstree, called Script: Restaurant and Bar.

The full-scale refurbishment forms part of The Hertsmere’s “ambitious” plans to progressively become the ‘home of family golf’ in Hertfordshire and North West London.

An 18-hole golf course in the middle of the Hertfordshire countryside, The Hertsmere has recently installed a new high-tech, “state-of-the-art” 26-bay golf driving range, and opened a golf academy which is ground-breaking in its approach focused on customer outcomes.

Built 10 years ago, the clubhouse provides facilities to serve food and drink in a restaurant setting which can also be used by golfers and for public gatherings. Award-winning interior design consultancy Rachel McLane Ltd started work on the interior design concepts behind the new-look restaurant about 18 months ago.

A spokesperson commented on behalf of the design consultancy: “One of the main things that stood out to us about The Hertsmere was the setting of the course and clubhouse, which are amazing and exceptionally beautiful; the course and the driving range have real character and are of a high quality, which we wanted to capture and reflect in our designs.

“The clubhouse is quite literally that, a place for everyone to meet and socialise and talk over their game with friends, families and children. We wanted to add a bit of a ‘wow’ factor to help match the very high standards of the rest of The Hertsmere.”

Stuart Ritchie, the business’s director, added: “The Hertsmere is a leisure business which owns a golf course, an award winning driving range and now an amazing restaurant which has been separately branded Script: Restaurant and Bar.

“We wanted to create our own narrative with our ‘fresh approach to golf’ and to give everyone the opportunity to get involved with golf and enjoy our facilities, hence our standalone restaurant in the centre of the facility.

“Our restaurant is key to this and we wanted it to be welcoming, accessible and appealing as well as reflecting our high standards and the importance we attach to our surroundings.

North Yorkshire based Rachel and her team of interior designers have created a concept that draws on the importance of landscape, countryside and environmental sustainability, without detracting from the view of the course.
