Ravenmeadow Golf Centre

Nov 11 2021 Business Insights

We asked Angela and James, the owners of Ravenmeadow Golf Centre to tell us about their average day ….

Hi there! How early is your first cuppa?

Not too early and, if we are very lucky, our children bring us our first cup of tea in bed.

Tell us a bit about your business.

James is a PGA Golf Pro and together we decided to leave London in 2007 and buy the Worcestershire business.  We have focused on developing a friendly, warm, welcoming golf centre that is open to everyone and now have a centre which houses an 18 hole golf course, a driving range, footgolf, pitch and put and adventure golf.  We have focused on developing our business so that it is open and affordable to our visitors and also the local community.

How do you recharge during the morning?

We love to recharge in the morning with one of our lovely, freshly cooked bacon and egg sandwiches – just perfect to give you that extra energy boost.

What’s your favourite lunch-time snack?

We are very lucky in that we can always eat at the club and generally we try to chose healthy options.  But once a week James treats himself to his absolute favourite – our clubhouse homemade burger and chips – scrummy!

What’s your average afternoon routine?

In the afternoon James tries to always hit a few balls and keep his golf skills up.  I  (Angela) look after the events and wider promotion so am normally tied up with that.  As we have our unique safari-themed venture golf, we attract a lot of visitors from outside the county who come here as either part of their journey or as part of their staycation.  Our days vary enormously and we are really lucky to have 18 staff so together, as a team, we always manage to get everything done.

How do you chillax at the end of the day?

We are homebodies, tending to spend time with the family, chilling out on the sofa.

What’s your favourite part of what you do?

We are really proud that our centre appeals to the whole family.  One day we had multi generations on the adventure golf from a baby of 8 months and a grandma who was 88.  I think it is appealing to families and the wider community that is our favourite part.
