With £90,000 being spent to upgrade the golf course and purchase new equipment for maintenance, country club facilities were also refreshed this year. A total of £100,000 was spent on redecorating the clubhouse and £80,000 was invested in state-of-the-art gym equipment, bringing the total invested to almost £2m since 2004.
Muir Group founder and chairman John Muir: “I am extremely proud of Deer Park. The country club holds a special place in my heart.
“All these improvements have our members in mind. After buying the facility almost 30 years ago, we have always listened and constantly worked to improve it wherever, and whenever possible.
“These changes gear the golf club up for the future and the tournament is a great way to kick-off Deer Park’s new era.”
More than 70 Scottish businesses from the construction industry and other sectors will play the revamped course on Tuesday and Wednesday this week at the EMTEC Deer Park Masters.
Deer Park general manager Stuart Cruickshank said: “This is a huge boost for the local community. It’s wonderful to see not only the investment in the golf course, but also to the entire country club which includes a swimming pool, spa, gym, bowling centre, restaurant and much more.
“The EMTEC Deer Park Masters will be a celebration of what makes our club special – great golf being played in good spirit in spectacular surroundings. It’s a fantastic opportunity for visitors to experience the club and all the improvements first hand.
The feedback we have received from our members, who feel the benefit of this investment day in and day out, has been extremely encouraging.”
