After a long awaited visit to Royal Norwich, Leighton sits down in the Clubhouse with David Coventry - Chairman, and James Stanley - CEO of Royal Norwich.
After 9 holes and some Lunch, the trio talk through the Royal Norwich story, with David explaining the back-story and James taking us through the present and what’s to come! David has been at the heart of the move from the former site since the 1980’s. This is a great story all round and one which all in the industry should listen to, not least for some inspiration as to what Golf Clubs can look like as we move forward.
One of the biggest challenges along the way was the cultural shift once the move was made and both David and James give their take on this.
Royal Norwich offers some stunning Golf but it’s much more than this. The club wants to open its doors wide to the community whether it’s utilising the Clubhouse, Practice Facilities or even Greenkeeper training!
We hope you enjoy the interview and apologies for some minor sound issues.
