Savills has been appointed by the administrators of Washington Developments Limited, Stuart Irwin and John Hansen of KPMG, to market the freehold interest of Woodham Golf & Country Club in Newton Aycliffe, Co Durham.

The 18-hole, par 73 golf course, which is currently closed, is positioned within a 214 acre (87 hectare) site on the northern edge of Newton Aycliffe and includes woodland and open land, 9,367 sq ft (867 sq m) clubhouse, 2,738 sq ft (245 sq m) greenkeeper’s building, practice range and short game practice area.  In addition, planning permission for the development of 50 executive homes, a new golf clubhouse and 75 bedroom hotel with conference and spa facilities has been obtained.

Woodham Golf Course was originally developed and first opened in 1981, designed by the highly respected J Hamilton Stutt, a founding member of The British Association of Golf Course Architects.

Abi Goodwin (Tel: +44 (0) 1865 269 095) associate of leisure and trading at Savills, comments: “Woodham Golf and Country Club offers purchasers the opportunity to acquire an existing golf facility in close proximity to Darlington, Bishops Auckland and Durham that, with the advantage of an existing planning consent, provides a number of development opportunities in the future.”
