Savills, on behalf of a private client, is marketing the freehold interest in Chart Hills Golf Club in Biddenden, Kent from a guide price of £2.75 million.
The 18 hole golf course is set within a circa 198 acre (80 hectare) site and is located in a rural setting to the north of Biddenden. Included with the property is a modern 27,889 sq ft (2,591 sq m) club house, greenkeeper’s building, 743 sq ft (69 sq m) of converted office space, driving range, bag drop / service hut, putting green and short game practice. A car park for 150 cars is also on site.
Chart Hills currently operates as a proprietary club, which also attracts green fees and society usage. The function facilities within the golf clubhouse generate further income in addition to the core golf business. Chart Hills is a championship golf course, which was designed by Sir Nick Faldo and has been a European Tour Qualifying school and also hosted the Ladies European Tour and the Ladies English Open Championship. In May 2017 the course is scheduled to host the prestigious Brabazon Trophy.
Additionally an adjacent residential property comprising a converted barn currently used for staff accommodation, together with two grass paddocks is available by separate negotiation.
Ian Simpson, director of leisure and trading at Savills, comments: “Chart Hills is a prime golf club in a fantastic location in Kent, which benefits from a range of income producing facilities. Golf continues to be a popular British sport and with the excellent credentials of this course we expect to receive strong interest.”
