The 150-acre course, located near his home, Astbury Hall, features natural landscaping, well-placed placed bunkers, manicured playing surfaces, and lodging on the grounds.

“Astbury Hall has been borne from my experiences on golf courses from around the world,” Downing said in a statement. “I am fortunate enough to have played some of the finest the world has to offer and I feel privileged to have been able to create a property that encompasses all my cherished experiences.”

He added, “I have been lucky to work in two industries that have allowed me to be so creative, especially golf course architecture, which has enabled the visions in my head to be transformed beautifully into a reality.”

In May, Judas Priest released a special 30th anniversary edition of their 1980 classic British Steel.
