Edgbaston GC has become the latest golf club to appoint a high profile chef to enhance its food and beverage operation.

The club has appointed Alix Davies, who previously worked for the royal household, as executive chef.

“Protocol means he sadly cannot expand on the royal’s favourite foods or eating habits,” said a spokesman for the club.

“Originally from Birmingham, he has returned home to the Midlands as his wife – who is a vet – has taken up a new job in the area, and has joined EGC.

“Alix has over 10 years experience, which has also included contract work with caterers who supplied top quality meals to the corporate boxes at Cheltenham Racecourse.

“This means Edgbaston Golf Club’s reputation for not only being one of the most attractive and popular golf courses in the Midlands, but also providing a fantastic food offering, has been enhanced.”

Alix commented: “I am really enjoying being back in Birmingham and am loving working at Edgbaston Golf Club. It gives me a varied work load, not only providing the day to day needs of a busy clubhouse, including many corporate golf days, but also increasingly acting as a wedding venue.”

Peter Fawcus, general manager at Edgbaston Golf Club, said: “We have always had a good reputation for our food at Edgbaston and Alix’s appointment has been a great addition to the existing catering team, run by Paul Leary.

“The club is a great platform for Alix and the team to demonstrate their varied cooking skills which is much appreciated by our golf and house members and their guests.”

A number of golf clubs have improved their bars and restaurants by appointing high profile chefs recently. For example, in 2016 North Middlesex Golf Club appointed a former MasterChef winner, while Stoke Park’s executive chef is Chris Wheeler, who has appeared on Great British Menu, Hell’s Kitchen 2, Saturday Kitchen and Sunday Brunch.
