Fresh from securing his spot as the top-ranked New Zealander at the 2016 Rio Olympics, golfing star Ryan Fox has adopted Foxhills Club & Resort in Surrey - host venue of the PGA Cup 2017 - as his official UK home club.
Currently ranked 144 in the Official World Golf rankings, Fox will practice on the resort’s two 18 hole courses, Bernard Hunt and the tree-lined Longcross, listed as one of the top 100 in England, with his short game getting a work out on the par three 9 hole Manor Course. He will also enjoy the Club's deluxe healthspa facilities and have the opportunity to relax in Nineteen, the bar and kitchen located close to the shared 18th greens of the Club’s two Championship courses.
Jason Adams, General Manager at Foxhills Club & Resort said: “Welcoming a player of Ryan’s global stature makes the entire Foxhills team very proud, and we’re delighted he has chosen to make our family-owned resort his UK home club. He, and our other guests, are assured the highest of standards in service and sustained investment in our golf experience, most recently with our purchase of 30 of the UK’s first E-Z-GO buggies fitted with TKV GPS.”
Fox commented: “The impressive facilities and combination of parkland and heathland courses so close to London make Foxhills irresistible. I’m looking forward to representing the Club as I continue to improve my game and climb up the rankings.”
Fox, 29, has eleven championships to his name including the 2015 Le Vaudreuil Challenge and the 2016 Northern Ireland Open. As well as representing New Zealand in Brazil this summer, he also played all four rounds at the 2015 Open Championship at St Andrews. He hails from a sporting dynasty, being the son of New Zealand rugby legend Grant Fox and grandson of New Zealand cricketer, Merv Wallace.
