Savills specialist golf and leisure teams in London and Oxford advised on approximately £890 million of trading and investment property in 2004.
Highlights of the year in golf terms included the sale of the Parasampia Estate, Newbury, The Woldingham Course, Surrey and the magnificent cliff top golf course in Falmouth. With £15 million of trading property already sold in 2005 another busy year is in store.
Gary Witham of Savills commented, “The strength of the Savills brand and our network of offices allows us to achieve the best price for vendors across the country. The global nature of the firm means that our “top buyer” may come from Moscow or Tokyo but we still know the local entrepreneurs. Our clients within these sectors have ranged from the Operators to major charities, foreign investors and Institutions. The value of being able to link with our Russian and Japanese desks as well as having a website with approximately 1.8 million unique visitors per annum is all utilised to the clients benefit.”
