Broke Hill Golf Club near Sevenoaks in Kent is an 18-hole proprietary members golf club, built in 1993. Owned by Crown Golf since 2000, the club has now been sold to Green Grass Golf Limited for an undisclosed sum.
Talking of the sale, Stephen Lewis, CEO of Crown Golf, comments: “Broke Hill is an attractive and successful members club; a freehold estate with a high-quality golf course in a strong catchment area. It is a quality asset from which we have realised good value in a deal which secures a bright future for the club and all the many golfers who love to play there.
“From the members ’ point of view, we are pleased to be handing them over to such a professional operator. I would like to thank the members for their loyalty during our period of ownership and have every confidence they will continue to enjoy the delights of Broke Hill Golf Club under the new management structure.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the staff for all their hard work and professionalism during Crown Golf’s ownership and wish them every success with the new owner.”
Andrew Craven of Green Grass Golf Limited said: “The purchase of Broke Hill Golf Club by Green Grass Golf Limited is a strategic acquisition for our shareholders, as we also own the adjacent pay and play course, Chelsfield Lakes Golf Club. This provides an excellent addition to our portfolio, and enables us to cover both the pay and play and proprietary membership market in the local catchment area.
“We’re delighted to be working with everyone at Broke Hill Golf Club. We look forward to making a positive contribution to the site, balancing what’s important to the staff and the members alike. We are also fortunate to be picking up the baton from Crown Golf who are the industry benchmark for golf course operations.”
