Offers in the region of £1.25 – £1.5 million were invited for the freehold property.
North Weald Golf Club is located on the A414 east of Harlow, approximately 1Â½ miles from junction 7 of the M11 and some 5 miles from the M11/M25 interchange.

Ben Allen, who heads HLL Humberts Leisure’s golf agency team, handled the sale. He said, “North Weald Golf Club attracted huge interest in the market, reflecting its commercial trading location and great untapped trading potential. As anticipated, the opportunity was of particular appeal to new entrants to the golf market, who continue to ensure that the demand for and hence the price of golf courses remains buoyant.”
