Buyer: A golf course in Liverpool could be turned into a new state-of-the-art golf destination, under new development plans that include the creation of a boutique hotel.
A new proposal has been submitted by Green Circle, Liverpool City Council’s golf operating partner, to transform Allerton Manor golf course with a £15m private investment, according to local newswire, BusinessLive.
The project would see the golf course upgraded with a reconfigured courses and improved driving range and putting area, as well as the Grade-II listed Allerton Manor House converted into a 31-bedroom boutique hotel, spa and function room.
Finally, there will also be a purpose-built golf pavilion and club house with new golf shop, changing and locker rooms, teaching facilities including indoor practice putting area, and golf simulators.
Operations director Yvonne Jackson said: “We are now operating four public golf courses in partnership with local authorities across the North West, and we are committed to an ambitious investment strategy to upgrade all of these courses including our other Liverpool course at Kirkby Valley, so we are absolutely determined to get this one right and develop a much-improved offer that re-defines public golf and promotes greater access and participation.”
Green Circle’s operations manager, Craig Coley, added: “We want to create a family leisure destination that offers more than an enjoyable and affordable game of golf. The leisure sector is enormously competitive, so expanding our offer to provide excellent food and hospitality is an absolute must.
“We are proposing to complete the restoration of Allerton Manor’s derelict but listed buildings and create a golf and family leisure destination with a unique sense of place.”
THPT Comment: Apart from the incongruous juxtapose of modern to Grade II listed beautiful building….be interested to see if planning for that goes through, great idea for this otherwise unused building.
