Midlands golf shops for sale

3.30pm 24th January 2003 - Property

On 15th January 2003 Bill Dawson and Bob Maxwell of Deloitte & Touche were appointed Joint Administrators of Golf Network Limited and Golf Network Retail Limited

Golf Network Limited has a large database of over 500,000 golfers around the UK. This was used to market golf events, golf holidays and other special offers. It also provided a golf events management facility.

Golf Network Retail Limited operated a total of six golf retail shops – most across the Midlands but with one in Edinburgh – mainly attached to separately owned driving ranges. The shops in Walsall and Solihull remain open and are being offered for sale.

“We have had significant interest in the remaining shops and also in the marketing database,” commented Bill Dawson. “We remain hopeful that we can achieve a going concern sale. We have also begun a clearance sale in the shops which is attracting a lot of attention.”

The shops can be contacted at:

Beckett’s Farm, Alcester Road, Whythall: 01564 826276

Calderfields Golf Centre, Aldridge Road, Walsall: 01922 613675

Business sales packs are available from Julian Heathcote or Vicky Cooke at Deloitte & Touche on 0161 832 3555 or email jheathcote@deloitte.co.uk. An initial deadline for offers has been set at 29 January 2003.
