GLE (Golf and Leisure Experience Ltd) is a project management company specialising in transforming leisure and recreation facilities using Environmentally Approved soil.
Like many entrepreneurial companies, GLE was created out of necessity when business partners Scott Cranfield and Simon Preston couldn’t find the perfect company to help them develop their golf and leisure business…
In 2007 we had plans to transform our golf centre into the UK’s No 1 Family Golf and Leisure Centre by using inert soil. After a long search for the right contractor, it became apparent there was a lack of expertise in pulling every aspect of this type of project together.
We were going to be the operators at the end of this project and that meant we saw the project very differently to the contractors. This difference became our strength and also caught the attention of local authorities who of course can’t afford the risk of a shabby operation or an unusable end product.
