Reignwood Group is a leading independent Chinese investment company, parent company in Hong Kong with an international portfolio of brands and growth companies in China, Europe, UK, US, and part of Asia. It was founded in 1984 by Dr Chanchai Ruayrungruang, a Thai-Chinese entrepreneur with strong roots in China. His simple aim is to enhance relationships between East and West by introducing the best of Western business values to China, and Reignwood’s expertise and experience in China to iconic brands in Europe and the US.
Reignwood acquired Wentworth Club in September 2014, and invested over £20 million into the Club across all facilities. This was more than has been invested in the past ten years combined. This investment forms part of Reignwood’s expertise in curating iconic assets, investing in them and growing them into leading global brands.
A key element of the investment was the West Course – the jewel in Wentworth Club’s crown. The renovations have been lauded by many of the world’s finest golfers and the team were honoured at the 2018 BIGGA Industry Awards in the category of Greenkeeping Performance of the Year. The iconic Clubhouse has also undergone a £13m renovation, setting a new standard for luxury amongst British country clubs.
A new debenture model was introduced for membership. This now encompasses the whole family, granting access to the wide range of facilities for all generations. Funds raised from the debenture structure are re-invested into the facilities as part of Reignwood Group’s vision for Wentworth to be the world’s premier private golf and country club.
