Leading real estate adviser Bilfinger GVA is instructed to bring Woodlands Manor Golf Club, West Kingsdown, near Sevenoaks to the market. Offers in the region of £1.6 million are invited for the freehold property, which extends to 55 hectares (137 acres).

Woodlands Manor Golf Club originally opened in 1928 to a design by six times Open Champion JH Taylor. JH Taylor and Henry Cotton played the opening round on the course to celebrate its completion. The current 18 hole format dates from 1967 and was designed by renowned course architect Neil Coles.

The Club nestles in the Knatts Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), between Orpington, Sevenoaks and New Ash Green. The property is circa 24 miles / 60 minutes’ drive from central London, with a 235,400 resident population within 20 minutes’ drive (1,175,740 within 30 minutes). The M25 (J3) is circa 6 miles / 13 minutes’ drive from the Club.

The facilities comprise an 18 hole 6,040 yard (par 70) parkland golf course, extensive practice facilities and a c. 795 sq. m, (8,560 sq ft) clubhouse.

Woodlands Manor Golf Club has been owned by the vendor since April 2000. The Club is one of the vendor’s multiple business interests and is currently operated more for the love of the game and pride of ownership than commercial reward. The business achieves a turnover in the region of £635,000 per annum and offers good scope for commercialisation. The Club is being offered for sale as the vendor wishes to retire.

The sale is being handled by Ben Allen, Director at Bilfinger GVA, who commented: “Woodlands Manor Golf Club is a wonderful facility. The Club occupies a most tranquil location set amongst swathes of woodland and rolling hills – stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of nearby city life. The golf market is proving to be an interesting investment sector for purchasers seeking alternative investment opportunities, and provides the security that owning a significant tranche of freehold land brings. The golf sector also offers remarkable value compared to the residential property market, along with the hope potential of future alternative use.”
