HOYLAKE GOLF RESORT
A NEW INTERNATIONAL GOLF DESTINATION

Wirral Council is working to establish Hoylake as the capital of Englandís Golf Coast.

In July 2015 the Jack Nicklaus Group was chosen as the preferred development partner for a new world class golf resort, following an international procurement exercise.

The project partners have now provided more details of their proposals, which would deliver:
175 new jobs on site and around £120 million of new investment
a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course and links academy
a new municipal golf course
a Marriott Resort Hotel and Spa
extensive opportunities for habitat creation
extra visitor spend supporting a vibrant tourism economy
a new link road to serve the Golf Resort and Hoylake
quality housing
To give local people an opportunity to see the latest proposals and how its various parts link together the Council is holding two drop-in events, which will run from 1pm - 7pm on:

11th to 13th November 2015
at Melrose Hall, 6 Melrose Avenue, Hoylake, CH47 3BU

18th to 20th November 2015
at Westbourne Hall, Westbourne Road, West Kirby, CH48 4DQ

Although the sessions are not part of the formal planning consultation process, which will take place next year, they will provide an opportunity to tell us what you think and to feed your comments and suggestions into the project design team.

You can view the proposals on our website and will be able to provide feedback on them when the first drop-in session starts on 11th November 2015.

Looks interesting.Bit too adventurous? Wonder if there are any other models around the world that show that having 54 holes next to each other pays.

St Andrews, 99 holes next to each other, plus another 18 holes 3 miles away?

Sounds Ghastly! Another blot on the landscape. Wirral needs more golf courses like it needs extra holes in the head! Spending money on this sort of thing when there are so many things needed more is an obscenity.

I notice that in Japan, the golf craze seems to have passed its peak and they are now being turned into solar farms.

Looking at that picture, with that number of trees/cover shrubs being planted, patches of rough and the areas of open water, it might actually provide a variety of habitats and enhance the wildlife value of the area.

The very eastern tip near the bottom of that plan just overlaps the location of the Hoylake Decoy Control Bunker CLICKY

Whilst it looks nice and green with nice lakes--it is golf courses--not public parks. Not the place to fish or walk your dog or have a picnic. Only a golf course and a load of fields there at present. Purely as a posh golf course I cant see the numbers adding up but I suppose the idea is to get people in to holiday and golf-but is Wirral really a golfing holiday destination?
New Brighton has certainly got more of a buzz about it with the new developments.

The old cynic in me says "potential residential sites" wonder how much of the new green is lost to them and then the plot by Saughall Massie road that's surrounded on 2.5 sides won't last long as countryside either.....

The land is grazing land for cattle, which is supporting wildlife such as brown hares, foxes, buzzards, kestrels, and barn owls, numerous insect species within their natural environment. There are plenty of trees, natural fauna and flora and hedgerows which support wildlife. How do you think turning it into a golf course will benefit this??
