Full Property Description

A newly constructed nine hole golf course with planning permission for a club house, offering excellent access to the local and national road network. A further nine holes are under construction on neighbouring land, also owned by our client, and the successful purchaser will be given first refusal to purchase this neighbouring land.


The Property is located off Bursnips Road in the village of Essington, South Staffordshire, which is immediately north-east of the city of Wolverhampton. Junction 11 of the M6 is just over one mile away to the north. There is a golf driving range, shop and academy known as The Range immediately east of the Property, accessed off Broad Lane.


The Property extends to approximately 70 acres (28.5 ha) and is a newly constructed nine hole golf course. A further nine holes of golf are being constructed by our client on neighbouring land to the south . We understand that the initial nine hole course will be ready to play from Summer 2018 onwards.

The boundaries of the Property are formed by Bursnips Road to the West, Broad Lane / The Range to the east, agricultural land / Walsall FC training pitches to the north and agricultural land to the south. The agricultural land to the south is also owned by our client and is currently being landscaped for a further nine holes of golf which will be available to purchase at a later date.

Vehicular access is off Bursnips Road. Our client will retain a right of access and vehicular / materials storage along the western side of the Property to enable construction of a further nine holes of golf on land to the south. Details to be agreed between the parties.

Planning permission has also been secured for a club house which has not yet been constructed.

Due to the course being brand new, there is no existing golf club business nor accounts available.


The Property lies within the jurisdiction of South Staffordshire Council and the golf course has been constructed by our client over recent years. On 5th February 2015, planning permission was obtained for a golf club house and ancillary storage including 63 parking spaces. The proposed club house has a gross internal area of 3,621 ft² (336.5 m²).

Construction of the above has commenced and so we consider that the planning permission is now live.


Our client will retain a right of access through the Property to the land immediately to the south where a further nine holes of golf are being constructed. Our client will also retain rights to store vehicles and materials in the south-west corner of the Property; details to be agreed between the parties.


The freehold interest is for sale with vacant possession upon completion.


VAT will not be payable.


Offers are invited.
