Savills, on behalf of a private client, has sold Huntswood Golf Club on Taplow Common Road, Buckinghamshire, to a private leisure operator from a guide price of £1.75 million.
The property is located between Marlow, Beaconsfield and Maidenhead, benefiting from easy access to the M4 and M40. Occupying a site of approximately 102 acres (41 hectares), the 18 hole golf course features a putting green, practice hole for teaching purposes and greenkeeper’s building. There is also a spacious modern clubhouse which features a shop and recently refurbished bar and restaurant area that opens onto an outdoor terrace with views over the golf course.
Originally, Huntswood opened as a nine hole course in 1996 and was later extended in 2002. The freehold interest that was acquired includes the original golf course, clubhouse, car park and woodland areas. The area comprising the additional nine holes is held under a 21-year ground lease expiring in 2024.
Huntswood currently operates as a proprietary members’ club, with a core group of members and further income is generated from green fee usage, and use as a venue for weddings and other functions.
Ian Simpson, director of leisure and trading at Savills, comments: “The sale of Huntswood Golf Club close to its guide price demonstrates the continued demand for well-located golf course assets, especially in the Home Counties.”
