Golf courses an attractive business to buy

Golf continues to be one of the most popular leisure pastimes in the UK. There are approximately 2,800 golf courses across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, with over five million people playing at least once a year. Following a dip at the onslaught of the recession, we are now beginning to see a noticeable pick-up in the number of people willing to spend money on pleasure pursuits like golfing.

As well as providing a unique leisure experience to players of all ages, golf courses have obvious property and land investment benefits, often proving themselves as secure long term investment opportunities. Golf course businesses can often generate multiple income streams from sources that include club membership fees, private and corporate function hire, regular admissions fees, sale of golf accessories and equipment and hotel accommodation charges.

And of course, golf clubs are one of the world’s most attractive ‘lifestyle’ business investment opportunities. What keen golfer wouldn’t want to own his or her own club?

Buy a golf course out of administration

Distressed golf courses and other golf related businesses are a great investment opportunity for anyone who is interested in pursuing a lifestyle change by purchasing a golf course, golf centre or driving range. Take a look at our administrations list for details on failing golf courses and related businesses that may be on the market. (These are sometimes sold at below market-valued prices and offer a great opportunity to buy licensed own premises.)

Our subscribers are using the distressed business alerts to:

  • Buy businesses out of administration for lower than market-valued prices
  • Ensure that they are the first to know about all businesses that go into administration in the UK (we publish our administrations list daily, well before even Companies House)  
  • Enquire about assets that may be up for sale as a result of a firm falling into administration
  • Monitor the distressed market for competitors who have been placed into administration and capitalise on their failings - bid for client banks, equipment or win over the endangered contracts of failing competitors
