Wirral launches International Golf Resort vision to world’s golfing media
Wirral Council launched its vision for an international golf resort in Hoylake to the world's golfing media on Friday 14th September at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
The Club is currently hosting The Ricoh Women's British Open for the first time in its illustrious history and proved to be the perfect backdrop for invited guests to view Wirral Council's vision for a top of the range golf resort in Hoylake.
The Council wishes to speak to potential developers who would be interested in developing a high quality, word class facility with an international reputation.
Cllr Ann McLachlan, Deputy Leader of Wirral Council said: "Tourism plays a major part in Wirral's economy and it is growing. This growth has been aided by an improvement in the quality of our tourism businesses, particularly since we hosted The Open Championship in 2006 and we believe the time is now right to speak to potential developers who would be interested in taking our tourism offer to another level with the development of a high quality golf resort. The land we have earmarked near Hoylake through a Capita Symonds feasability study sits in large part within Council ownership and although this is just a vision at present, we would like to find out what interest there is 'out there' to bring a project of this scale forward."
"Wirral hosted the most successful Open ever held in England in 2006 and we are once again experiencing another fantastic boost to our economy as thousands of spectators join us to watch the world's best women golfers compete at The Ricoh Women's British Open. Wirral offers a unique experience of English golf at its historic best and we believe golf tourism in Wirral can have an even more exciting future."
