The Club Company is delighted to announce the acquisition of Wharton Park, a prestigious Golf Club in Worcestershire.
Situated on the edge of the historic, riverside town of Bewdley, surrounded by the undulating Wyre Forest and Worcestershire countryside. Wharton Park’s 18-hole championship golf course is one of the finest in the county.
This acquisition follows a recent significant investment program within The Club Company.
A £2m investment has been underway since October 2015 at Castle Royle in Berkshire. Additional facilities are being built including a children’s training pool and toddler pool, adult wet spa, adult-only bar and various golf course improvements. Another £5M investment started in mid-November 2015 at The Warwickshire, where the company is building a four star 56 bedroom hotel, as well as improvements to the members’ facilities (gym and bar refurbishments and a studio extension).
Commenting on the deal, Thierry Delsol, Chief Executive of The Club Company, said: “We are delighted with the purchase of Wharton Park, having been attracted by its high quality facilities and excellent location. In time and with additional investment, Wharton Park will fit the Club Company model, offering golf and extensive health and fitness facilities to suit the all family.
“Lone Star, our financial backers, have been very supportive. The recent acquisition and investment programs at Castle Royle and The Warwickshire demonstrate our desire to grow the company.”
