Want to Buy Your Own Golf Club?

By: Adam Smith | Fri 21 Oct 2011

We were having that great old discussion in the Golfshake office the other day ‘What would you do if you won the lottery?’

Well as the discussion went on it got to the point of someone saying ‘I’d love to own a golf club’ to which I had the comedy light bulb above my head, ‘how easy would it be to go and but a golf club?’

After some research it turns out very easy there’re specialist brokers and estate sellers that deal with the sort of thing I was after and I was surprised at the amount I found. Maybe the sport that we all love is still struggling from the economic downturn and some of the smaller courses are still struggling.

One of the best companies I found was called PPC a sister company to parent company PPC Portman which in their own words ‘publishes the leading golf business magazine - Golf Management Europe. In doing so PPC Golf has access to, and relationships with, many of golf’s foremost operators, developers, architects and owners not only in Europe, but throughout the world. As a result, PPC Golf is in the unrivalled position of being able to communicate frequently with an established client-base of investors seeking to add to their existing portfolio’.

Looking through their glossy online brochure is very impressive:

  • A new 65 hectare estate in the rolling French Countryside with 18-holes alongside a holiday complex, guide price 2.5 million Euros.


  • A redueced price option in Wales, with links with the M4 motorway. 18-hole, par-72 built to USGA standards, gudie price just short of £700,000.


  • 18-hole parkland option in Northern Ireland which is steeped in history, guide price £2.75 million.

And there’s a few more in Sweden or a chance to invest in a new development in the golfing hub of Latvia.

I found clubs for sale all over the country and was a bit worried that someone, somewhere on Golfshake will have a course for sale near them. How are those little homely clubs that we like to visit keeping themselves afloat?  The introduction of 2-4-1 vouchers and Groupon deals are there to attract golfers to the smaller clubs to try and spread the word that they’re still about.

Personally I would love to own a golf club and have the investment to make it better and install my own ideas on the place. So if anyone has a spare few million available then you know where to find me!
