Cleeve Hill Golf Club in Cheltenham has been saved from closure by a company that now plans to turn the venue into a "first class club", according to Gloucestershire Live.
The popular UK golf club, which has existed on Cleeve Hill for more than 100 years and was designed by the father of the legendary Old Tom Morris, has been taken over by Cotswold Hub Co.
Golf might still be shut out in England right now, and also in Wales and Northern Ireland, as a result of the Covid lockdown, but the company has revealed plans to transform the tired looking clubhouse along with building a new restaurant and accomodation lodges on Cleeve Hill.
The report claims Cotswold Hub Co's proposal for the club promised to "deliver a place where cyclists, walkers, golfers, riders, wildlife enthusiasts and historians could all share a common interest: the unique Cleeve Hil."
"We're delighted Cotswold Hub Co. has been announced as golf operator at Cleeve Hill," a spokesman for the 'Save Cleeve Hill Golf Course' campaign group told Gloucestershire Live.
"The Save Cleeve Hill Golf Course group has strived to see the magnificent golf course and its facilities saved for future generations, by an optimum new operator. Nick Hovey and Sam Foyle have the background to do Cleeve and all who love it proud.
"We extend our full support, look forward to getting to know them as we learn about their plans and supporting them as they roll-out.
"This is terrific news for all who use the Common and this outstanding public facility, at a legacy moment."
