A Lincolnshire golf course could be converted into housing after the company that owns the location’s lease has decided it does not fit into its business plan.

The freehold for Humberston Country Club’s 18-year-old nine-hole golf course, which has over 100 members, has been placed on the market with a guide price of £2.4 million. The venue includes a health and spa, which is not up for sale, of which the lease was sold to Virgin Active for £77 million earlier this year.

Whitmarsh Holt Young, which is marketing the course to potential buyers, has stated that the 36.5 acres of land could be converted into housing, subject to planning. Furthermore, the Grimsby Telegraph has reported that ‘a planning application for Keystone Developments’ 400-home scheme, featuring a retirement village and affordable housing [on the golf course] is believed to be imminent.’

The development comes just three years after nearby Humberston Park Golf Club was closed because a buyer could not be found for the site.
