International investor acquires Hersham Golf Club

8.19am 18th September 2008 - Property

Hersham Village Golf Club, a good quality 18 hole, 5,307 yard, par 67 course near Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, has been acquired by Claudel Venture Holdings Limited at a figure in the region of the £1.65m asking price.

The sale was handled by Ben Allen and Paul Barnes at HLL Humberts Leisure. Ben Allen said, “Very few golf businesses in the south west quadrant of the M25 Motorway come to the market. There was strong interest in the opportunity and we are not surprised that the sale was concluded relatively quickly.”

Alan Plumb of Savills Leisure Team in Oxford, who acted for the buyer in company with Mundays Solicitors and Vantis Accountants said, “We were pleased to offer valuation consultancy and planning advice to Claudel Venture Holdings, who are keen to widen the appeal of Hersham Village Golf Club through further investment, particularly with regard to the clubhouse facilities and golf experience.

“The club has great potential to serve the regional private and business community, as well as local people, and to become a well-known sporting and leisure destination in its own right.”

Much of the course was constructed on land which was formerly a tree nursery for the Greater London Council and retains a mature wooded setting, with the remainder landscaped to give a gently undulating terrain. Rodney Hutton continues as director of golf at the club which has a modern single storey clubhouse, floodlit driving range and purpose built green keeper facility.
