City of Wakefield Golf Club has been given the keys to its new home.

The club will move into the new Gaskell Sports Pavilion, which features a new eco-friendly irrigation system as well as changing facilities for local football and cricket clubs, on April 1.

It has been based at the grade-II listed Lupset Hall since 1937.

But the new facilities will benefit season ticket holders and casual golfers.

Coun David Dagger, Wakefield Council’s cabinet member for sport said: “This move is great news for the club and its members. The Gaskell Sports Pavilion is a great facility and will provide a good home to the City of Wakefield Golf Club as well as encouraging more people to take up golf and lead an active lifestyle.”
