Whittlebury Park Golf Course
Whittlebury Park Golf Course is part of the Whittlebury Hall Estate, offering 36 holes of Championship Golf Courses with a large Spa operation, a 212 bedrooms Hotel and extensive conference and catering facilities. Situated in the beautiful countryside next to Silverstone Race Course, Whittlebury has hosted events such as The Trilby Tour Championship in 2018 and 2019.
HSC have been working with Whittlebury for over a decade now.
Working together we have helped raise the standards to a 5 Stars Food Safety rating which has been maintained over several years.
The club did have some ‘historical’ health and safety documentation (which mostly were outdated and insufficient) before the partnership with HSC – these have now been replaced with and amended with current compliant documentation.
HSC have assisted in creating risk assessments for all equipment used by the golf club, Spa, Catering and Hotel plus a hole by hole risk assessment for each hole at the club.
We have also provided a ‘golfers’ H&S guide (which is displayed on the members notice board), Fire Risk Assessment, Safety Policy, COSHH Policy and assessments, Food Policy, HACCP, allergen information, staff safety / hygiene handbook and associated easy to use records.
We have also provided training to all levels in these subjects (bespoke and certificated).
With regular audits we work together to make sure all documents, paperwork / records and procedures in the club are up to date and being completed, check the conditions throughout the Club House, Spa, Hotel, Kitchens, Green Keepers workshop and the golf course itself.
HSC and Whittlebury have seen a vast reduction in the number of accidents/ incidents at the Club and a noticeable improvement in Food Safety and the overall Health and Safety standards of the club in all areas.

Gosport and stokes bay golf course
Gosport and Stokes Bay Golf Club is situated on the picturesque Hampshire coast line with panoramic views over the Solent and Isle of Wight. The 9-hole links course with 18 tees offers members a challenging yet scenic round of golf.
When the golf club approached HSC, the Policies and documents in use were outdated and incomplete in some areas. Food safety practices needed improvement and the allergen information required urgent updating.
HSC is now working with the club to help improve their Health & Safety, Food Safety, Fire Safety and the overall safety culture of the club to a much higher standard. We have supplied them with their bespoke policies (health & safety, food safety, fire safety, COSHH, golf safety), risk assessments both generic and specific (fire risk assessment, all machinery/equipment, kitchen equipment and each hole at the golf club).
We provide Health & Safety and Food Safety training to all staff, created an allergen menu and SOPs for the Catering Department.
The club is now fully compliant with current legal standards.
The staff attitude concerning these subjects has changed throughout the club, with everyone in all Departments now understanding the importance of good Health and Safety etc and how it reduces accidents and improves working conditions .
