Ennismore, the company behind Gleneagles Hotels, is planning to create a luxurious multi-million-pound leisure development which will include holiday tepees, a spa, and restaurant on the site of Easterton Farm, near Auchterarder, which the company has purchased. Gleneagles has submitted a proposal of application for the ambitious Perthshire development with Perth and Kinross Council, and they have said they intend to lodge full plans in the Spring.
It is believed it will be similar in nature to private members club Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire, part of Nick Jones Soho franchise, which already provides catering to some of Ennismore’s other hotels.
Meanwhile, Gleneagles has just been unveiled as an Official Supporter of the Glasgow 2018 European Championships – an exciting new multi-sport event that will see Gleneagles make golfing history as host of the first ever European Golf Team Championships. To be staged every four years, the European Championships will combine the existing European Championships of Athletics, Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing, and Triathlon.
The first event will be held in 2018, in a unique sporting partnership between Host Cities Glasgow and Berlin.
The European Golf Team Championships is the only new event being staged as part of Glasgow 2018 and will take place at the famous Jack Nicklaus-designed Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course – the same venue that hosted Europe’s memorable victory over the USA in the 2014 Ryder Cup.
