Hertfordshire – Freehold Golf Course for Sale

8.14am 28th April 2010 - Property

Centurion Golf Course Hole 13

HLL Humberts Leisure, the property specialists to the golf and golf hotel industries, is instructed to market the Centurion Golf Course in Hertfordshire. Offers in excess of £800,000 are invited for the freehold property, which enjoys a commercial trading location between Hemel Hempstead and St Albans.

With 330,000 population within 20 minutes drive time and the M25 / M1 interchange in close proximity, this is an exceptional opportunity to acquire a fine golf course in the North London commuter belt.

The Centurion Golf Course comprises a Simon Gidman designed 6,805 yard (par 72) golf course (that is nearing completion), a practice ground and a greenkeepers complex; together with a site for a new clubhouse. Planning consent is in place for a c. 930 sq m (10,000 sq ft) clubhouse that is to be positioned just off the A4147, the principal route between Hemel Hempstead and St Albans.

Simon Gidman, the internationally renowned golf course architect, said: “Having visited the proposed site of the Centurion Club I was certain that this land was suited for transformation into an impressive golf course. However, it became clear that the owners wanted to create something very special. They wanted a golf course born of imagination and quality, with a ‘must play’ reputation. At over 6,800 yards the course is a perfect membership length with a scale of contouring that frames dramatic scenery in the recognised style of an inland links.”

The sale is being handled by Ben Allen who comments: “It is rare that the market has the opportunity to acquire an opportunity such as this and to shape the future of a business prior to opening. The Centurion Golf Course would be ideal for either a quality membership orientated or an upmarket pay & play based operation. It is encouraging to report that we have a good early level of interest in the freehold property.”
