De­funct golf club on the mar­ket

Bray People - - NEWS - By ES­THER HAY­DEN

A de­funct nine hole golf course in Kil­coole has been put on the mar­ket with a guide price of €1.15m.

Kil­coole Golf Club has been brought to the mar­ket by sell­ing agents Sav­ills.

Act­ing on the in­struc­tions of Kil­coole Golf Cloub Plc, the agents are mar­ket­ing the 53acre park­land course, which in­cludes a nine-hole golf course and 4,491 sq ft mod­ern, pur­pose-built club­house to both golf course op­er­a­tors and in­vestors.

The golf club, which has been closed since Au­gust 2016, was founded in 1992 and de­signed by Brian Williams, a prom­i­nent mem­ber of the Grange Golf Club.

The sig­na­ture hole is found on the 3rd and features an is­land green sim­i­lar to TPC Saw­grass’s famed 17th hole. Wa­ter plays a ma­jor part in nav­i­gat­ing the nine-hole park­land course of 5,594 yards length with a par 70.

There is a con­venant reg­is­tered re­lat­ing to the use and en­joy­ment of the prop­erty. The land can­not be used for any pur­pose other than as a golf course and any use an­cil­lary thereto.

Pat O’Ha­gan of Sav­ills said: ‘We are de­lighted to bring Kil­coole Golf Club to the mar­ket. There is a scarcity of open park­land sim­i­lar to this in County Wick­low at the mo­ment. It was pre­vi­ously used as a golf course, but could have other uses sub­ject to the nec­es­sary plan­ning per­mis­sions be­ing ob­tained. The lands, which have ex­cel­lent drainage, are close to the vil­lage of Kil­coole and will gen­er­ate se­ri­ous in­ter­est from a range of in­vestors in the mar­ket.’

The club­house it­self is a pur- pose built two storey build­ing.

The ground floor ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes an of­fice, re­cep­tion area, ladies and gents locker rooms and show­ers. The first floor has a bar area with tim­ber floors and win­dows over­look­ing the for­mer course. There is a com­mer­cial stain­less steel fit­ted kitchen with sink unit and piped for gas. Door to back hall with wash room and door to in­side the bar.

The bar area is large and spa­cious and bright and en­joys views over the course. There is a large func­tion room off the bar area with tim­ber floor and at­trac­tive beamed ceil­ing and large fire place. Doors open out to bal­cony out­side.

The golf club is shel­tered from the west by the Wick­low Moun­tains. Dublin city cen­tre is a 35km drive via the M11 and N11 from the golf course, while Dublin Air­port is a 60km drive via the M11 and m50.

Kil­coole Golf Club is also well lo­cated in terms of ameni­ties, with many shops in the area and with coastal towns of Bray and Grey­stones just a short dis­tance away there is plenty to see and do. The neigh­bour­ing Druid’s Glen Golf Course at­tracts many in­ter­na­tional tourists to the area, as do the Su­gar­loaf moun­tain and the his­toric monas­tic site of Glen­dalough.
