PRESTATYN Golf Club is up for sale.
The 107-year-old course has been placed on the market with offers of between £1million and £1.25 million being sought for the freehold property.
The revelation has left the club members concerned, and they believe it is vital the right buyer purchases the facility.
Lee Billington, who is on the club council, said: “We do not want the course to be sold to a buyer who will not be prepared to invest in the course and its club house with a proactive programme for the development of its already outstanding facilities.”
He added: “The Club council and the Trustees have decided that to take the club into the future it is necessary to attract either investors or a potential buyer who will maintain the course and its facilities as a Championship links of the highest standard.”
The club regularly hosts the Welsh Open Strokeplay Championship, the Welsh Amateur Championship, the Welsh Ladies Championship and regional professional events.
Ben Allen, of the UK’s largest independent commercial property consultants GVA, which is handling the sale, says: “Following on from our successful sales of four golf courses at the end of 2012, we are pleased to be offering this prestigious club for sale, especially as Championship links golf courses of this type are rarely available to the market.
“The property is being offered for sale at a very realistic price and we expect strong interest in this unique opportunity.
“The members will give their full support to the new owner and are looking forward to a bright future.’’
Mr Billington said the Club is trading as normal and membership is open.
