Lutterworth Golf Club is roaring back into action just weeks after their historic clubhouse was deliberately burned to the ground.

The prestigious club was left shell-shocked when their iconic 117-year-old clubhouse was torched by arsonists in a devastating fire late on the night of Saturday May 1.

But the proud club's staff and 700 members are showing amazing fortitude, tenacity and resilience as they rebuild the sporting organisation which stretches all the way back to 1904.

Club manager Caroline Cartlidge told the Harborough Mail that they are bouncing back incredibly quickly as she paid a heartfelt tribute to local businesses and fellow golf clubs for their massive support.

"We were able to open the course to members once more the following Saturday, May 8 and social play and competitions have been played here at our beloved club ever since," said Caroline.

"We were successful in securing some basic temporary facilities for members and staff very swiftly. The offer of help and support from local businesses and other clubs has been overwhelming."

"We would like to say a huge thank-you to anyone and everyone who has helped us over this time. Other local golf clubs opened their course to our members whilst we were closed. And other clubs have helped to provide a venue for some of our functions that would have had to be otherwise cancelled."
