Sefton Council currently owns and manages two public golf courses located in Southport and Bootle.
In support of the joint aims of improving the quality and the financial performance of both facilities, the Authority is seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced golf course development and/or management agencies.
As the custodian of these strategically important and popular local facilities, the Council has identified a number of fundamental principles that any prospective partner agency needs to satisfy:
- The need to retain the ethos of accessible, affordable pay and play golf facilities
- The ability to bring investment capacity to improve the range and quality of golf facilities
- To offer a partnership that will serve as a catalyst for regeneration within the respective areas
The Council is open to exploring innovative ways of structuring any prospective partnership to secure maximum value and arrangements that deliver mutual benefits.
To register an interest and to access a prospectus providing information about the two courses, visit the ‘Opportunities portal’ – ‘the chest’ www.thechest.nwce.gov.uk
The closing date for the submission of development opportunity ideas and partnership proposals is Monday 13th January 2014.
