Catering franchise opportunity: Clitheroe Golf Club

Clitheroe Golf Club, situated in the beautiful Ribble Valley in the lea of Pendle Hill, is regarded as one of the premier inland courses in the North of England, having hosted many prestigious events during our illustrious history, which dates back to 1891.

We have a healthy 650-strong membership and in the region of 5,000 visitor rounds per year.

The Club continues to advance its strategic development programme, which involves substantial investment in all areas of the course and club facilities and will further enhance the reputation as one of the top courses in the country.

Recent investment at the club includes a fully refurbished Clubhouse and new Academy and Performance Centre ( and now coincides with the requirement to appoint a catering partner to further improve our F&B experience as part of the evolving elevation of Clitheroe Golf Club across all areas of its operations.

The Club invites expressions of interest and applications from candidates looking to form a great partnership.
