One of the 18-hole golf courses at the Kent & Surrey Golf & Country Club in Edenbridge, Kent, has been sold and bids for a second lot are currently being reviewed, according to the selling agents Savills.

The well established course, designed by renowned golf architect David Williams, along with a 9-hole academy course, floodlit driving range and clubhouse and occupying 140 acres of land, will continue to operate as previously.

Built 35 years ago, it was principally aimed at challenging the experienced golfer and has two loops of nine holes, extensive sand bunkering and interesting water features, and the contoured landscape and mature trees give good fairway definition.

The second 18-hole course, which has been closed since 2003, has also attracted a number of separate bids. This plot of land, set in about 90 acres bordering the Kent Brook, offers development potential to be re-established as a full length, par 68 to 70 course or to be converted back to agricultural or amenity use with separate access.

Kay Griffiths, of Savills Oxford, says: “The club was put on the market in June 2009 and attracted a huge amount of interest. It is without doubt one of the best golf courses in the area and the fact that it will continue to operate is good news for the members.”
