World-class golf resort moves a step closer for Wirral
THE creation of a luxury golf resort close to the world-famous Royal Liverpool links has moved an important step closer to reality with a local authority launch of measures to find an official development partner.
Wirral Council, which today set in motion the procurement process, has been working through European Union channels to announce its intention of developing a 285-acre site in Hoylake.
The proposal features a world-class golf course, five star hotel and conference facilities and “an associated development commensurate with a high quality golf resort.”
Council leader Cllr Phil Davies said:”I am proud to launch the official search for a development partner to help Wirral Council realise our ambition to build a world class golf resort at Hoylake.
“The launch of the procurement process is an incredibly exciting step for Wirral and its future as a landmark destination for golf tourism.
"The commencement of this stage means we can move from expressions of interest to confirmation of concrete, firm bids and the appointment of a preferred developer.
"It is a complicated process and we are working to a tight schedule but I hope to be able to announce our chosen partner when Wirral hosts The Open at Royal Liverpool Golf Club next July.”
The council has appointed an advisory team led by AECOM, a global property and construction consultancy and also involving niche consultancy IPW and DTZ Hospitality Group, a global leader in property services.
DTZ spokesman Richard Dawes said: “This is a very exciting opportunity, providing a unique opportunity for the hotel and golfing world to be part of Hoylake’s rich heritage of golf.
“There is a gap in the market for an upscale resort of this nature at Hoylake and Wirral, and we expect strong international and domestic interest in this opportunity.”
