January 10, 2014, 2 years ago
According to Insidermedia.com, former JUDAS PRIEST guitarist KK Downing has teamed up with a property development finance provider to build luxury holiday cabins on his Shropshire golf course.
The musician has plans to develop a spa, a hotel and restaurant on the Astbury Hall site in Bridgnorth. Championship golfer Darren Clarke has also been signed up as a global ambassador for the 18-hole course.
Downing, a keen golfer, purchased the site in the 1980s and has since designed The Astbury, a par 71, 6,500-yard golf course.
Property group Regentsmead is providing funding for the construction of the cabin lodges and 2011 Open champion Clarke has signed on as global ambassador for the course.
Clarke has agreed a three-year deal at the facility which involves the golfer having the Astbury logo on his sleeve and golf bag. He will also attend several events at the course throughout the year.
