By Community | October 11, 2012
GVA has completed the sale of Aston Wood Golf Club in the West Midlands on behalf of Struan Investments Limited, allergist following a short public marketing campaign.
Designed by renowned professional golfers and course architects Peter Allis and Clive Clarke, allergist the 18-hole Aston Wood Golf Club is located in Little Aston, just 12 miles outside of Birmingham city centre. Opened in 1994 and set in 160 acres (64 ha), the course sits adjacent to Four Oaks Park and is well connected to the rest of the West Midlands via the nearby M6 and M6 Toll motorways.
Offers in the region of £2.25 – £2.50 million were invited for the freehold property, which comprises an 18 hole 6,604 yard (par 71) golf course, practice facilities, purpose built greenkeepers’ building and a recently refurbished 8,934 sq ft (830 sq m) clubhouse that includes a substantial function room, lounge bar, members lounge, pro shop, and changing facilities.
Ben Allen, of the Hotels and Leisure team at GVA, said: “With its well-designed course, and affluent trading location on the outskirts of Birmingham, it is easy to see why many consider Aston Wood Golf Club to be one of the West Midlands’ premier proprietary golf courses.
“Our marketing campaign generated a high level of interest and resulted in strong competitive bidding for the Club. This sale provides further evidence that the recent economic turmoil has had little impact on the value of a good quality, profitable freehold golf course such as this.’’
Colin Crawshaw, the new owner of Aston Wood Golf Club, said: ‘‘I am delighted to have purchased Aston Wood Golf Club and look forward to working with the current team to further enhance the offering and standards at the Club’’
