Kent & Surrey Golf Club for sale
An entrepreneurial buyer is being sought for a high quality golf course, set in a mature landscape within the London commuter belt, which has considerable development potential.
The Kent & Surrey Golf & Country Club, at Edenbridge , Kent , has a well established 18-hole course designed by renowned golf architect David Williams, a 9-hole academy course, floodlit driving range and clubhouse, occupying 140 acres of land.
A second 18-hole course which has been closed since 2003 is set in about 90 acres and bordering the Kent Brook, offers development potential to be re-established as a full length, par 68 to 70 course. This area is offered separately to the main golf facilities, and could alternatively be converted back to agricultural or amenity use with its separate access.
Ellis Auger, of the selling agents Savills, says: "The original course was built 35 years ago and was principally aimed at challenging the experienced golfer. There are two loops of nine holes, extensive sand bunkering and interesting water features. The contoured landscape and mature trees give good fairway definition. It is without doubt one of the best golf courses in the area."
As well as golfers' facilities on the ground floor, the modern clubhouse has extensive but largely unused leisure and function facilities on the first floor, including a former gymnasium, sun bed rooms, treatment room, sauna, conference room, office suite and manager's studio flat. This again presents a development opportunity for a new owner to take the business forward.
The Kent & Surrey Golf & Country Club is on the market as a whole or in two lots, at guide prices of £1,100,000 and £350,000. For further information contact Ellis Auger at Savills Oxford on 01865 269000.
