Proprietary golf business to let

7.00am 19th August 2004 - Property

Worldham Park Golf Course comprises an 18 hole 6,208 yard (par 72) golf course, with 3,200 sq ft clubhouse and 14 bay driving range. The property is located at Alton, close to the Hampshire/Surrey border.
The business is operated as a pay and play facility (with a resident club) and has been trading since 1993. WPGC has been operated as a family business/diversification project and offers good potential for further commercial development.
A 20-year FRI lease is offered to the market as a retirement disposal through HLL Humberts Leisure in return for an annual rent.
WPGC is laid out over circa 42 hectares (103 acres) of gently undulating parkland and woodland and enjoys far reaching views over the surrounding Hampshire countryside. The principal settlements in the vicinity include Farnham (24,000), Basingstoke (80,000) and Winchester (32,000).
The golf course extends to 6,209 yards (Par 72) and comprises three par 3‘s, twelve par 4’s and three par 5’s arranged in two loops of nine holes starting and finishing close to the clubhouse. The course winds through mature parkland, mature broadleaved woodland and recent poplar plantations that are a feature of the course. Water comes into play on the 5th, 10th, 11th and 17th holes.
Since its construction in 1992 the golf course has matured well and now offers golfers an enjoyable, testing round of golf. The course was designed and constructed by the owner. Well presented greens, appropriately sized teeing areas, an automated irrigation system to greens, plus a comprehensive drainage system ensure that the course is playable throughout the year.
The 14 bay golf driving range is an integral part of the clubhouse. A cantilevered structure extends from the clubhouse covering 7 bays, with the remaining bays being uncovered. A practice putting green is positioned adjacent to the clubhouse.
