‘Gem’ golf course looking for new owner

7.40am 11th September 2008 - Property

A golf course in Hampshire, with significant business growth potential, has come onto the market. The freehold of Bishopswood Golf Course is being offered for sale by Savills at a guide price of £795,000.

The course at Tadley has been described by Hampshire PGA as ‘a golfing gem’ and is well known locally for its impressive layout and interesting landscape features. The 75 acre site includes a 3,200 yard par-36 course along with a 12-bay floodlit driving range and putting green.

The clubhouse provides over 7,000 sq ft of accommodation on two floors and has potential to be used for weddings, conferences and other functions. In addition to a pro shop, restaurant/function room, fully-equipped catering kitchen and offices there is a self-contained two-bedroom apartment.

The vendors operate the bar and restaurant in the clubhouse, where the first floor function room/restaurant, with far reaching views of the course, provides up to 60 covers.

Emma Lawrence of Savills Leisure Team in Oxford says, “This is one of the highest standard nine-hole golf courses we have seen for some time and we believe the property will have wide appeal.

“Unusually for a nine-hole course, the greens have been designed to USGA standard and are acknowledged as some of the best in the county.

“Bishopswood was developed and has been operating as a family-run business since 1976 and its high quality is a testament to the owners’ continued dedication. This makes it an exceptional opportunity compared with the full length 18-hole or short par 3 nine-hole courses more frequently offered on the market.”
