Confidence in the golf market is growing

November 21st, 2014

This good news is part of the Golf Property review by Savills that we publish today. If evidence of this growing confidence is needed then look no further than our report of one of the biggest golf property transactions that there has ever been – the acquisition by QHotels of six former De Vere Hotels and De Vere Luxury Lodges. As deals go, they do not come much bigger than that.
