Golf Development is back in the News

March 10th, 2015

It has been a long time since we carried a story about a significant new golf development in the U.K. but this week we have done so on two consecutive days. Yesterday it was the £80m Aberdeenshire golf development at Ury Estate and today it is the Rossington Hall Golf Developments scheme at Doncaster in South Yorkshire. In both cases the plans include a significant number of residential properties.

Of course both schemes have a long way to go before they open but it’s good to have such positive ideas to report.
