An uneasy truce seems to have been declared between the new owners of prestigious Wentworth Golf Club and its members - after plans to force them each to pay a one off £100,000 debenture fee were dropped.

The world famous club's new owners Beijing based Reignwood had caused outrage by demanding the payment. But at an extraordinary general meeting held at the club last week the demand was withdrawn.

Ni Songhua, the London based Reignwood head, said: "We have listened to a variety of differing interests from members and estate residents. We are continuing the make every effort to accommodate those, while focusing on our vision of making Wentworth club the world's premier private golf club and country club."

John Pyle, vice-chairman of Wentworth Residents Association, said that the club's owners had listened to concerns. But he said agreement over annual membership fees still needed to be worked out - Reignwood's plans to raise the annual fee from £8,000 to £16,000 caused a furore. It has now been agreed that Wentworth residents will face lower fees.

Meanwhile a row has erupted between the Wentworth Estate Road committee - the body formed to ensure the protection of the Wentworth environment - and the Professional Golf Association (PGA) over this year's prestigious PGA tournament happening at the club in May.

An icy letter was sent from WERC chairman Sunil Liyanage to Wentworth Golf Club chief executive Stephen Gibson and PGA championship director Sir James Birkmyre demanded the cancellation of planned concerts by rock superstars Mike and the Mechanics and singer Tom Chaplin - saying they did not conform to site's use as a golf club.

The letter also expressed concern about the growing size and scale of the tournament.

But a spokesperson for the European Tour this week indicated the concerts were still on, saying: "The concerts have been an integral part of the Championship for a number of years and remain hugely popular with tickets holders, families and local residents."

The spokesperson said the event made a significant economic contribution to the community and hoped to raise a significant amount for Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens charity – the Championship’s official charity for 2016.
