Story published at 14:03, Friday, September 12th, 2014
GVA’s specialist Hotels and Leisure team is instructed to market Eccleston Park Golf Club in Merseyside. Eccleston Park is a prime, freehold golf club with a highly profitable trading record that is being offered to the market at a guide price of £1.45 million.
Eccleston Park Golf Club comprises a high quality 18 hole 6,477 yard (par 71) golf course, practice facilities, an attractive 633 sq m (6,800 sq ft) clubhouse with superb function / conference facilities and a modern greenkeeping complex. The property extends to circa 50 hectares (123 acres) and is located between Liverpool and St. Helens, with over 850,000 residents within a 20 minute drive time.
This profitable business generates turnover of approximately £750,000 and an operating profit of circa £160,000. During the 2013 calendar year the business mix was approximately 47% golf, 12% retail and 41% food and beverage income. The business benefits from an excellent management team, who will be invaluable to an incoming owner and would facilitate the acquisition of the Club by an investor with no experience in the sector.
The sale is being handled by Ben Allen in GVA’s London office. Ben Allen comments: “Eccleston Park is a very well presented golf club in a strong commercial trading location. It is an ideal acquisition for someone looking to invest in the dynamic golf sector. This summer has demonstrated the strength of the market’s appetite for golf clubs. In the last three months we have sold Cranleigh Golf & Country Club, Oakland Park Golf Club and Waterfront Golf Centre, with two other golf clubs currently under offer. Purchasers are attracted by a property backed investment that offers a good return on investment, pride of ownership and also the chance of future gain through further development.”
