Long Sutton Golf & Leisure Ltd has instructed HLL Humberts Leisure, the golf property specialists, to sell Long Sutton Golf Club, Somerset. Substantial offers are invited for the freehold property – a guide price is available from HLL Humberts Leisure on request.
Long Sutton Golf Club, located close to the A303, comprises an 18 hole 6,352 yard (par 71) golf course, a 12 bay golf driving range and practice areas, together with a well appointed clubhouse with extensive conference and function facilities and two substantial apartments. The club has a highly successful trading record and has enjoyed sustained growth over the last four years culminating in a turnover of approximately £1 million for the year to 31st March 2005. The business mix is currently 50% golf income and 50% food & beverage sales and the club enjoys a fine reputation in the area.
South Somerset District Council has recently granted planning consent for the development of a 38 bedroom lodge at the club, which together with other extant consents, will facilitate the further expansion of the business and enable it to capitalise on its excellent commercial trading location which is equidistant from Bristol, Exeter and Bournemouth.
The sale is being handled by Ben Allen from HLL Humberts Leisure’s Winchester office, who said, “Long Sutton Golf Club, which was established in 1990, is a fine golf facility that will be of great interest to lifestyle purchasers, golf operators and golf hoteliers. The 2005 planning consent for the 38 bedroom golf lodge will ensure the continued growth of this successful business, with a mixture of commercial, function and golf related trade envisaged.”
