9.30am 17th July 2001 - Property

The Leisure & Development Division of international property agents, Christie & Co, has been instructed to find a buyer for the Forest Hill Golf Club in Newgate Street Village, near Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.

Offers are invited for the freehold interest in this attractive 9-hole, par 36 course, which includes a high quality clubhouse, comprehensive bar and restaurant facilities and also an opportunity for a further 9-hole development.

Situated one mile north of Cuffley and two miles north-east of Potters Bar, the golf course is easily accessible from Junctions 23 and 24 of the M25 and lies just 16 miles from London, 5 miles from Hatfield and Hertford, and 6½ miles from St Albans.

The golf course has been constructed on 22 hectares (55 acres) of picturesque Hertfordshire countryside with trees, mature hedgerows, dykes and a number of water features. An automated irrigation system has been installed on all playing greens.

The clubhouse has extensive views over the course, the entire west-facing elevation having floor to ceiling glazing opening out onto a summer terrace. The building has an approximate floor area of 464 sq metres (5,000 sq ft) and comprises a professional shop, changing rooms, bar/viewing lounge, 70-seater restaurant and summer terrace. There is also a green keeper’s building and car park.

Lawrence Telford, who is handling the sale from Christie & Co’s London office, comments: “Our clients developed Forest Hill Golf Club in 1992, formally opened for play in 1993, and have managed the business ever since. Due to other business commitments they have now decided to sell. The course has excellent potential for further development, both in terms of increasing its size as well as it turnover and profitability.”
