Crown Golf acquires The Bristol Golf Club

12.45pm 22nd December 2006 - Property

Crown Golf today announced that it has acquired The Bristol Golf Club, Avon from Joint Administrators Graham Randall and Tony Nygate of BDO Stoy Hayward for an undisclosed sum.

Commenting on the acquisition, John Weir, of Crown Golf, said, “We are impressed by what has been created at The Bristol and feel privileged to be part of re-establishing the club as one of the foremost golfing venues in the local community.”

Crown Golf is the largest owner-operator of golf courses in Europe with 56 courses and 32 clubs under their control. The company also operates hotels and health & fitness clubs.

The Bristol, a members’ club as well as a popular conference and banqueting venue, commands impressive views across the Severn Estuary and with golf facilities that include a challenging 18-hole course, practice range, golf academy and 9-hole par-three course, it welcomes both experienced players and beginners.

Full members of The Bristol Golf Club can now also benefit from Crown Golf’s “Open Play” membership, a unique benefit which gives them playing rights to all 56 courses in the group – the sort of variety and challenge that most golfers thrive on, and no other membership package can offer.

Graham Randall, on behalf of BDO Stoy Hayward, said: “The Bristol is a good club and potentially a very strong business. We believe that we have sold it to a company that will take it to the next level”.
