New golf ho­tel will boost town

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

THE new golf ho­tel planned for South­port is great news for the town.

Cre­at­ing the South­port De­vel­op­ment Frame­work was an un­de­ni­ably dif­fi­cult project for Sefton Coun­cil and con­sul­tant firm Nexus, and nat­u­rally re­ceived a huge amount of feed­back.

Draft ver­sions of the doc­u­ment re­ceived de­ri­sion from some quar­ters for plans such as mov­ing the carousel a mat­ter of yards along the Prome­ande. How­ever, one thing that was right to be con­sid­ered was South­port’s sta­tus as one the coun­try’s best and most pop­u­lar golf­ing re­sorts.

A new top class ho­tel, sim­i­lar to Formby Hall, can cap­i­talise on that per­fectly and en­able the town to build on that rep­u­ta­tion and at­tract more vis­i­tors.

The new fa­cil­ity would be sit­u­ated per­fectly for ac­cess to the coun­cil-run South­port Golf Links and the Hes­keth Golf Club, while there are two more high class cour­ses just ten min­utes away from the pro­posed site.

With Royal Birk­dale host­ing the Open Cham­pi­onship this year, South­port again has the op­por­tu­nity to po­si­tion it­self in peo­ple’s minds as one of the golf­ing cap­i­tals of the UK.

Like all sea­side re­sorts, South­port faces a tough bat­tle to keep its econ­omy in good health in the com­ing years. De­vel­op­ments like this, which fo­cus on the qual­i­ties that few oth­ers can of­fer like South­port does, are go­ing to play a key role in that bat­tle.

While this is just one of many projects which will be needed to help pro­tect South­port’s fu­ture, it’s a re­al­is­tic one and one which can cap­ture the imag­i­na­tion of both in­vestors and vis­i­tors alike.
