Cherkley Court Golf Course Plan Gets Final Green Light
Published October 3, 2012
OTHER GREENS: GOLF COURSE ARCHITECTURE reported the planned golf and housing development on the Ury Estate at Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, "may be back on the table." Farmer John Forbes bought the estate earlier this year for a sum believed to be in the region of £5M ($8.1M), after the former owner, FM Developments, which had planned to build the golf estate, "went into liquidation." Forbes was a shareholder of FM, and said he planned to farm the land for the moment. Jack Nicklaus' firm had been down to "design the golf course." New planning applications for the site have been filed with Aberdeenshire (GOLFCOURSEARCHITECTURE.net, 9/26). GOLF COURSE ARCHITECTURE also reported plans have been announced for a new "upmarket golf resort close to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in north-west England." Wirral Council, which owns much of the land to the east of the Royal Liverpool course -- which will once again host the Open Championship in '14 -- "is looking for a commercial partner to develop the resort on a 333-acre site behind the Hoylake municipal course" (GOLFCOURSEARCHITECTURE.net, 9/26).
