We are thrilled to be the Charity of the Year for the prestigious Wentworth Club for 2018, and it has been an absolute honour being involved in their annual fundraising drive. The team and members at Wentworth Club have been passionate about the Knights Foundation and our cause, attending many of our events and meeting families that we are helping with their donations. Quite a few brave members from Wentworth have abseiled from great heights, and jumped out of a perfectly good working plane... all in aid of our Foundation! We are truly thankful for their support during this wonderful fundraising year.
Wentworth has earned its place in Britain’s collective consciousness. It’s a national treasure and a global icon for professional golfers and spectators alike.
With a palpable sense of pride and a refreshing change of pace, guests come to Wentworth to feel the history in the walls and the fresh air on the greens.
Reignwood acquired Wentworth Club in September 2014, and invested over £20 million into the Club across all facilities. This was more than has been invested in the past ten years combined. This investment forms part of Reignwood’s expertise in curating iconic assets, investing in them and growing them into leading global brands.
A key element of the investment was the West Course – the jewel in Wentworth Club’s crown. The renovations have been lauded by many of the world’s finest golfers and the team were honoured at the 2018 BIGGA Industry Awards in the category of Greenkeeping Performance of the Year. The iconic Clubhouse has also undergone a £13m renovation, setting a new standard for luxury amongst British country clubs.
