There could be a new clubhouse and pro-shop at Falmouth Golf Club if plans for the improvement and expansion of the golf course and 48 eco-friendly holiday lodges get the go-ahead.
DC Hughes Falmouth Limited wants to carry out improvement and expansion of Falmouth Golf Club on an extra 18 acres and build 48 eco-friendly holiday lodges. Mr David Hughes is quick to emphasise that these will not be second homes.
Also proposed is a new pro-shop with indoor training facility, improved landscaping and car parking. It is hoped the scheme will secure the long term future of the popular golf course which is used by thousands of people each year, both local and visitors.
Mr Hughes said, “The current clubhouse is not big enough, not energy efficient and not economic to keep in repair. The club is now thriving but still does not make enough profit to cover depreciation and major repairs, let alone any return on capital invested.”
Holiday lodges will finance the new clubhouse and course improvements. They would also provide extra business for the club at times when it would otherwise be quiet.
The new clubhouse will be energy efficient and use renewable energy and rainwater harvesting.
The golf course, which already has an excellent reputation, is situated in one of the best locations possible overlooking the sea.
