The work means the Wrekin area of the golf course will be closed during week days between Monday June 5 and Friday. July 28. The full course will be still be open during weekends.

Councillor Carolyn Healy (Lab)Cabinet member for climate action, green spaces, heritage and leisure said: “This is an exciting time for golfers at Horsehay.

"These latest improvements are going to make a big difference to residents who use the golf course.

"It’s important that all of our leisure facilities across the borough are well maintained and up to date so residents can enjoy them, this is always at the forefront of our minds when we are planning investments.”
