As COVD restrictions are lifted and with the golf boom and participation in the game continuing to grow, Faybrook Consulting are delighted to bring Barnehurst Golf Club to the market.

Set in approximately 45 acres, this 9 hole course is situated in Bexleyheath, within the M25 and just 18 miles from Central London.

Barnehurst Golf Club was laid out in 1904 and designed by Open Champion James Braid

The course was originally laid out in 1904 and designed by Open winner James Braid. It is set in a mature landscape extending to 2,372 yards and includes a great variety of holes which are suitable for beginners and more advanced players alike. The course also includes a practice putting green and an automated irrigation system to greens.

The clubhouse has been recently redecorated and comes equipped to allow the new operator to start trading immediately. Alongside the course and clubhouse, there is a recently built 16 bay floodlit driving range.

Matthew Lynwood of Faybrook Consulting who are handling the letting on behalf of the London Borough of Bexley commented: “It is rare to bring to the market such a fantastically located quality golf facility within Greater London. The course is steeped in history, golf holes are set in mature woodlands and the property includes a recently built covered range.

“As you play the course you enjoy fantastic views over the River Thames and beyond into Essex as well as far reaching views into Kent. It is a gem set in a great landscape yet surrounded by dense residential areas. It truly presents an opportunity for an operator to manage a busy and successful business which is able to attract beginners to the game as well as providing a challenge to more advanced players.”

Regarding the clubhouse, Matthew commented: “The recently redecorated clubhouse extends to around 480 square metres (5,000 square feet) and has been an extremely popular venue for functions with the capacity to host up to 200 guests. It has been very popular for weddings, parties and Christmas events. The clubhouse also has the benefit of a separate golfers bar alongside the function space for added flexibility and includes a fully fitted kitchen.”

The landlord – London Borough of Bexley – are seeking a new operator to manage the business under a new lease.
