Welsh border golf course that Ian Woosnam was once tipped to buy has gone on the market


Henlle Park Golf Club has been subject to controversial planning bids

A golf course that former world number one Ian Woosnam was once tipped to buy has gone on the market. Henlle Park Golf Club is located on the Welsh border between Wrexham and Oswestry.

It has been subject to controversial plans to reduce the 18 hole course to nine holes to make way for 90 holiday cabins. Concerns over its future saw Ian Woosnam named as part of a consortium to buy the site and secure the course – although it is not known how far the bid progressed.

The £10m scheme by the owner has been knocked back by Shropshire council. A appeal against the decision was recently dismissed. Now the site near Gobowen – which is currently closed – is on the market for £2m with Savills.

It includes the 18 hole parkland golf course extending to 6,161 yards, par 70. There is a clubhouse/function building with leisure facilities, bar, dining area and kitchen. This includes a two-bedroom, second floor apartment and office with views over the course. The whole site extends to 140 acres.

The listing with Savills states: “Henlle Park Golf Club comprises beautiful undulating land with three lakes, several pools and mature trees, with views of the Welsh hills in the background. Since opening for play in 2003, Henlle has hosted County Competitions, Inter County Matches and the Regional Senior Amateur Championship and is one of Shropshire’s premier parkland golf courses.

“The property is located between Wrexham and Oswestry approximately two miles south of the England-Wales border in a rural location just of the A5.”
