Tenants tee up fresh start for Gloucestershire golf club
By Rob Freeman | 31st March 2021
New tenants will begin a licence and 125-year lease for a golf club at Cleeve Hill tomorrow (Thursday 1st April).
Cotswold Hub Co will take over the running of the sport on Cleeve Common - months after landowners Tewkesbury Borough Council decided to end the licence for golf once the existing tenants announced their intention to end their lease agreement.
But after several expressions of interest, Cotswold Hub agreed the new lease with the council and the licence with Cleeve Common Trust.
Cotswold Hub co-founder Sam Foyle, said: "We are delighted to be a part of this unique venue and aim to deliver a more sustainable future for the golf club while adding more facilities for all users of Cleeve Hill to enjoy."
The company is proposing to transform the clubhouse facilities with wider amenities for the community such as a new restaurant, cafe, accommodation lodges and a shared space where people can meet and work.
The council's chief executive Mike Dawson said: "We have worked hard to secure the future of this fantastic asset to the borough and are thrilled that our vision for this spectacular setting - to continue with golf, while providing a range of facilities for the wider community - is shared by the new tenant."
