Eastwood Golf Club, a 126-year-old private club located on Glasgow’s south side which closed six months ago, has been sold for the asking price of £750,000 and may yet re-open as a golf club.

The club, which is located 14 miles from Glasgow city centre, shut down in May after going into administration. Early bidders were considering housing developments and other leisure facilities, but it is understood that the successful bidder is considering the possibility of bringing the club back to life.

Donald Yellowley, a partner in chartered surveyors DM Hall’s Bridge of Allan office, which oversaw the sale of the club: “After entering into the bankruptcy process in May this year, the club and its assets were listed for sale, with offers invited on the basis of a going concern. One of those offers was accepted with the sale completed earlier this week and the new owner has not ruled out the possibility of re-opening the course and reforming the club.”
