Sonning Golf Club, one of the best-known clubs in Berkshire, has been acquired by Comland Leisure.

Comland, which is based near High Wycombe, is planning a programme of investment at the club to develop and improve facilities. Target Chartered Accountants advised the club’s shareholders on the sale.

Sonning golf course was designed and opened in 1911 by JH Taylor, founder of the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) and one of the famous triumvirate of Open winners which also included Braid and Vardon. Another Open winner, Max Faulkner, was an assistant professional at Sonning.

The 18-hole course, situated a few miles from Reading, is memorable for its tree-lined fairways. The club also has a restaurant and conference facilities catering for business events and weddings.

Comland is planning to improve the quality of the fairways, install better irrigation and drainage, widen tees and carry out work on the club buildings.
