Strutt & Parker have sold Frodsham Golf Club near Chester to the owners of nearby Northop Golf & Country Club. The club had been offered with a guide price of £1.9 million and attracted strong interest from a wide range of interested parties.
Charles Greville- Heygate, a partner in the Leisure & Hotel department which handled the sale said, “I was not surprised by the interest. It was a very attractive and popular course, with a strong membership base. The two courses should work together well and benefit the management and membership of both.”
Frodsham Golf Club is within three miles of junction 12 of the M56 and is easily reached from the conurbations of Chester and the Wirral (population 430,000), Liverpool and Manchester. The 6,328 yards, 18-hole course (SSS 70) was opened in 1990.
The business was developed by the owners, Mr and Mrs Roylance, in the late 1980s, on land which they had farmed, and has been family-run ever since. The wish for retirement is the reason for sale.
