Humberts Leisure, the leisure business specialist, has been instructed to offer East Dorset Golf Club for sale on the open market. Offers in excess of £2.5 million are invited for this exceptional freehold 27 hole golf course.

East Dorset Golf Club is located in a renowned tourist area close to Wareham and within easy reach of the Poole/Bournemouth conurbation. Local attractions include Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove, Poole Harbour and Swanage.

The present owners, Count and Countess Lerche, acquired East Dorset Golf Club in 1989 since when the club has been substantially expanded and upgraded. The facilities now comprise the Hawtree designed 18 hole Lakeland Golf Course and 9 hole Woodland Golf Course, a well presented clubhouse, floodlit driving range and practice facilities, together with the 16 bedroom Dorsetshire Golf Lodge.

East Dorset Golf Club has an excellent reputation in the region as a fine venue for golf. The standard of the facilities is reflected in the competitions that the club has hosted which include the Dorset County Championships, the Dorset Golf Festival and the Players Tour.

Ben Allen BSc (Hons) MRICS, head of Humberts Leisure’s golf agency team, is handling the sale. “East Dorset Golf Club is an exceptional venue for golf. The club has a strong membership base, is a fine venue for societies and visiting golfers and has a growing reputation as a function venue. This success is clearly shown in the business trading records, which indicate a turnover approaching £1.0 million per annum,” he said. “Seldom are courses of this quality offered for sale on the open market. We anticipate considerable interest in the club, particularly from local entrepreneurs and lifestyle purchasers. Full details of the business are available from our Winchester office.”

Brian Lee, the newly appointed President of East Dorset Golf Club, added, “The members are proud of this golfing resort. We have a reputation for our excellent standard of facilities and welcome to visitors and we look forward to the club going from strength to strength with the new owners.”
