GVA Humberts Leisure is instructed by Pentland Golf to market Austin Lodge Golf Club, Eynsford, which is located close to the M25 Motorway, within easy reach of Sevenoaks, Bromley and Dartford inKent. Offers in the region of £1.785 million are invited for the freehold property.
Austin Lodge Golf Club occupies 113 hectares (279 acres) amidst tranquil surroundings set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property comprises a challenging 18 hole 6,575 yard (par 73) golf course laid out through a series of valleys; a practice ground and practice putting green; and a modern, refurbished c. 520 sq m (5,600 sq ft) two storey clubhouse, along with purpose built greenkeeping facilities.
Austin Lodge Golf Club opened in 1992. The Club currently trades predominantly on a pay and play basis, but has a core of members. The business achieves a turnover in the region of £730,000, typically 68% golf income, 23% food & beverage income and 9% retail / miscellaneous income. The Club is considered ripe for commercialisation, particularly the food and beverage operation, which historically has been franchised.
The sale is being handled by Ben Allen who heads the golf team for GVA Humberts Leisure. Ben Allen comments: “Austin Lodge Golf Club is being offered to the market as it is remote from our client’s other business interests and thus they have not been able to focus on the Club as much as they had hoped. This property offers the opportunity to acquire a trading leisure business with significant growth potential, backed by an extensive land holding, close to London and the M25 Motorway. Following our successful sales of a number of golf courses in the South East we expect significant interest in Austin Lodge Golf Club.”
