PRESTATYN Golf Club has been taken off the market and its members are “looking forward to a bright future”.
The 107-year-old course was recently placed on the market for more than £1million - a revelation that left club members concerned.
A spokesman for the club said: “The course was up for sale, however, after a pro-active and informative presentation at the club, outlining a strategy to ensure a successful future, the members and the club council have decided to withdraw the golf club from sale.”
He added that there was a break down in communication between the club and its members for the course to go up for sale in the first place.
“The course going up for sale is the best thing that has ever happened to the club because the reality of what we could lose has brought everyone together,” he said.
“This is phenomenal for Prestatyn - we want to get the community involved and not just be a private members’ club.”
The decision was made to withdraw the club from the market during a meeting last week, after the majority of members said that they did not want the course to be sold.
Mayor of Prestatyn, Cllr Anton Sampson, said that the ward councillors would be happy to meet club members and try to help them make it a success.
“It is fantastic news it is staying with us,” said Cllr Sampson. “It is an excellent course, one of the best in Wales.”
