Surrey golf club for sale

8.15am 13th August 2002 - Property

Humberts Leisure, chartered surveyors and leisure business specialists, is instructed to offer Bletchingley Golf Club, Surrey for sale on the open market. Offers in the region of £1.75 – £2 million are invited for the freehold property, fully fitted and equipped.

Bletchingley Golf Club is located between Reigate and Godstone, some 5½ miles from the interchange of the M23 and M25 Motorways. The club comprises a freely draining 18 hole 6,510 yard (par 72) golf course, a practice ground, two practice putting greens and a 763 sq m (8,200 sq ft) clubhouse, which is ideal for societies, functions and conferences. The freehold property extends to 56 hectares (138 acres).

Bletchingley Golf Club is currently operated as proprietary members’ golf club and enjoys a good reputation in the region. With a membership of approximately 500, the club offers great potential for expansion. The property is being offered to the market as a retirement sale.

Ben Allen, head of Humberts Leisure’s golf agency team, is handling the sale from Humberts Leisure’s Winchester office. “Bletchingley Golf Club is a well located golf business,” he said “that has been under the control of the current proprietor since its inception in 1993. The club has undoubted potential for commercialisation through growth in membership, green fees and society trade. We have already received a number of expressions of interest and I am confident that a sale will be achieved within a short timescale.”

“There is considerable activity in the golf market at this time,” he continued, “with a wide range of purchasers seeking both freehold and leasehold opportunities. HLL Humberts Leisure has just sold The Oxfordshire Golf Club and we are due to announce the sale of a number of other businesses, primarily in the south east, within the next fortnight.”
