De Vere ‘Considering A Sale’ Confirmed

May 30th, 2014

In the past few days there has been much speculation that De Vere is about to bring to market all the golf resorts it owns in the UK: Cameron House, Mottram Hall, Slaley Hall, Dunston Hall, Belton Woods and Oulton Hall. Some reports anticipate that the six properties together will make as much as £160m. A spokesman for De Vere told me, “De Vere is considering a sale of the golf resorts but no date has been set.”

In addition to monitoring this story, next week GBN will be telling readers who has been appointed as General Manager of Le Golf National in Paris, host of the 2018 Ryder Cup, and, hopefully, confirming that Jack Nicklaus has been awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, joining Byron Nelson and Arnold Palmer as the only golfers to be awarded this honour.
