American Golf buys first entire golf complex for £2.7 MILLION

American Golf, Europe's largest golf retailer, has bought High Legh Park Golf Club in Knutsford, Cheshire for £2.7 million.

The purchase, facilitated by HMH Golf & Leisure, marks the first time that the retailer has owned an entire golf complex with courses, a retail outlet, conference and event facilities and a food and beverage offering.

The site is the latest investment for American Golf in a busy last six months. The business recently invested £650,000 in its Trafford 'superstore' in Greater Manchester and overhauled its stores in Milton Keynes and Hull.

The company also created a new flagship store in New Malden, Surrey and have revamped the Netherley store in Liverpool, which is scheduled to open on May 8th.

American Golf has also put significant investment into new golf ranges in Rossendale, Lancashire and Hemingford Abbots in Cambridgeshire.

Developing golf ranges has been a key part of American Golf’s growth strategy, with the increased facilities offering more of a leisure destination and widening appeal to the public.

"High Legh Park Golf Club is a seamless addition to our site portfolio and being in such close proximity to our own Cheshire headquarters, it aligns perfectly with our growth strategy," said Gary Favell, the CEO of American Golf.

"We're looking forward to investing in the site for the local community and to provide members with the very best facilities. The site appeals perfectly to both male and female players of all abilities - and we're even more excited about the potential of the Junior Academy, which will inspire and develop future golfers.

"High Legh Park Golf Club is the perfect site for us to continue widening the sport's appeal."

The Chesire golf club is equipped for all levels of golfer with two courses, a driving range, a pitch and putt course and 23 bays including ten Top Tracer bays. The complex also boasts The View Bar and Restaurant which overlooks the course.
