Liverpool, Allerton golf course nets council £234k
The future of the golf course in Liverpool has been secured thanks to a deal signed today.
Allerton Golf Course has transferred to Allerton Golf Trading Ltd, part of the Maghull Group, in a deal which will net the council £234,000 per year.
A 25 year contract has been signed which will see the firm take over the operation of the course and continue to provide affordable and accessible ‘pay and play’ golf.
The city council will be working with the new operator – which also took over North Liverpool Golf Course earlier this year - to secure investment and upgrades that will attract more customers.
Assistant Mayor and Cabinet member for culture and tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said “We have got to save £156 million over the next three years, and the tough budget choices we are facing means we have to prioritise services.
“We already have a strong relationship with the Maghull Group due to our work with them over the North Liverpool Golf Course and we know they are committed to improving the golf offer along with the off-course facilities.
