A Staffordshire golf course which celebrated its centenary last year is on the market and looking for a new owner.
Greenway Hall Golf Centre, four miles from Stoke-on-Trent, opened for play in 1909. It was conceived by James Braid, considered one of the best golf course designers of all time, and occupies an undulating, elevated position with views across the Peak District towards three counties in addition to Staffordshire: Cheshire, Derbyshire and Shropshire. Mature landscaping, trees and a number of water features combing with bunkering to provide a good range of hazards, and the length and layout of the course suit players of all abilities.
The current owner, who now wishes to focus on other business interests, bought the course in 1996 and has invested heavily in the facilities and new landscaping. In 2002 Greenway Hall was voted best golf club in Staffordshire for the quality of its greens, overall condition and customer service.
Kay Griffiths of the selling agents Savills says: “Greenway Hall presents a rare opportunity to acquire a moorland golf course so close to an urban catchment area. There was some disruption to the course’s playability during improvement works in 2007 but the business is now on the up and has plenty of growth potential.”
Greenway Hall Golf Centre is on the market with Savills Leisure team in Oxford at a guide price of £850,000.
