REDDITCH'S beloved Pitcheroak Golf Course, established more than 100 years ago, is under new management.

The club, famous for its breakfasts as well as its nine-hole course, has been taken over by Rubicon Leisure - Redditch Council's 'specialist leisure' company.

The company has taken over the full management of the Pitcheroak Golf Course and its bar and cafe.

A spokesman said: "Pitcheroak Golf Course was already managed by Rubicon Leisure; however we will now run the catering side of the business too.

"There is currently a short period of closure while a refit of the kitchen and café area take place."

The inside of the clubhouse is also getting a revamp in preparation to re-open in the coming weeks.

The golf course will remain open throughout the planned works.

The venue will re-open as Greenview Bar & Café.

There are also plans to grow the golf over the next few months with a number of special offers.
