A nine-hole golf course in Hampshire is to be given a new lease of life after being bought by a local businessman.

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

Kay Smith, of international property advisers Savills, who acted as agents in the sale, says, “This is one of the highest standard nine-hole golf courses we have come across for some time. The greens are designed to USGA standard and are acknowledged as some of the best in the county. The added attraction of significant potential for growing the business meant that we received a high level of interest from a wide variety of sources.”

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.

Bishopswood Golf Course was offered for sale last September by Savills Leisure team in Oxford at a guide price of £795,000.
