Greetham Valley is one of the finest golf, hotel, leisure and conference venues in the East Midlands – a hidden gem in Rutland, tucked away in a secluded valley just minutes from the A1.
The complex was conceived and developed by the Hinch family in 1990 – originally farmers, they saw the possibilities of such a delightful rural setting. It is Robert and Dee Hinch who today oversee the running of the resort, constantly seeking to further enhance service and facilities for their guests.
Two 18 hole championship golf courses criss-cross the stunning valley, with lakes and brooks that meander across the landscape – a haven for wildlife and visitors alike. The golf facility also includes a driving range, putting green, 9 hole par three course and golf academy.
The 35 bedroom hotel is complemented onsite by eight lodges and a holiday cottage. Guests can enjoy locally sourced food from the lounge bar or restaurant, served by friendly, welcoming staff, whilst the meeting and conference facilities are second to none.
Whether you are a golfer, leisure visitor or business looking for the perfect venue – Greetham Valley can deliver on all levels.
Corporate Charity Partnership
In March 2017, Greetham Valley and local charity the Roger Begy Memorial Trust announced their new corporate charity partnership. This is the first time that Greetham Valley as a business has partnered with a charity and both parties are delighted with the affiliation. Roger was leader of Rutland County Council just prior to his passing, had a long-term involvement in community work with a special interest in education, the area for which he received his OBE. Michelle Begy, one of Roger’s daughters-in-law and Trustee of the charity, said “When we lost Roger it left a massive hole in our lives and our hearts. Roger was passionate about education and we wanted to do something to both help with our grief and to carry on his work in Rutland, the county he loved. We set up the trust to help children and young adults of Rutland be the best they can be, whether in academia, sports or the arts. We are excited and privileged that Greetham Valley is our corporate partner, for us it was a natural marriage as there have been strong links between the families for over two decades.
Dee Hinch, Greetham Valley’s Business Director, said “We have a long history with Roger and his family – 25 years ago he was elected our very first Golf Club President and Captain – and we mourned his passing last year along with the rest of Rutland. Nick and Michelle gave us an overview of the fabulous work that their charity intends to do for Rutland youngsters in memory of Roger and, as a family run business, we felt it would be the perfect match for us.”
The Trust has organised an annual fundraising ball, which from 2018 will be held at Greetham Valley and plans are also underway for an inaugural summer 2017 Golf Day at the venue in Roger’s memory. Funds raised at these and other events will go towards assisting children in Rutland to further their sporting and academic careers; in time, the Trust is also hoping to introduce bursary and apprenticeship schemes aimed at keeping Rutland youth in the county.
