AN investigation is under way after the majority of offices and machinery at the Royal Jersey Golf Club were destroyed in a fire overnight.
Firefighters were called out in the early hours of today (Saturday 20 May) following reports of a blaze inside Fort Henry in Grouville, which is used as a depot by the club.
In an email to members, the club said: ‘In the early hours of Saturday morning, 20th May 2023, a fire broke out in Fort Henry destroying the majority of the greenkeeping sheds, offices, machinery, computer systems, safety clothing and tools.
‘Whilst the course will remain open as the fire was contained within the walls of the fort, there will be no course maintenance for at least the next few days.
‘In addition, there will be no hire buggies available from Monday as the greenstaff will require them to access the course.
‘Whilst this is devastating for the club, thankfully no one was in the fort at the time.’
