Do you have a property to sell or let?

A recently-built nine-hole golf course at Essington, near Wolverhampton, is set to go under the hammer in Bond Wolfe Auctions’ Birmingham property auction at Villa Park.

The 70-acre course, with a club house under construction, is listed with a *guide price of £455,000.

Wood Farm Golf Course, on Bursnips Road, Essington, comes with another three acres of potential development land.

Ron Darlington, consultant director at Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “While the course itself is complete, only the footings have been laid for the clubhouse so far. That means a new owner would have some flexibility in being able to change the layout, or the size, of the building to their needs, subject to planning permission.

“That could involve its use as a function room or event venue.

“Potential new owners could range from those looking to run a public course as a business to companies or high-worth individuals wanting their own private course, possibly for use as corporate entertainment.

“Given the range of possibilities, we are expecting considerable interest in this property.”

Planning permission was granted for a clubhouse of around 3,621 sq ft, ancillary storage and 63 parking spaces at Wood Farm on February 5, 2015, by South Staffordshire Council. Although not finished, the construction of the club house has started and therefore it is considered that planning permission is now live.

In addition to the nine-hole course, the additional three acres for sale front on to Broads Lane, Essington, and could be developed independently of the golf course.

Wood Farm Golf Course is for sale on a freehold basis. The current vendor is constructing a further nine holes on neighbouring land which may be available for purchase at a later date.

It is one of 111 lots up for auction at Villa Park in May.

Bond Wolfe Auctions was launched earlier this year by a team with over 250 years of experience in selling by auction. The first auction on 13 March at Villa Park saw a total of £16.7 million raised from the sale of 103 properties.

The next auction takes place at 10.30am on Thursday, 9 May. The lots to go under the hammer can be viewed at
