The managing director of a business advisory company has bought Hamptworth Golf and Country Club in Wiltshire for an undisclosed sum.


Hamptworth Golf and Country Club

Carl Faulds, managing director of Portland Business and Financial Solutions, is a member at Hockley Golf Club in Hampshire and has a single figure handicap.

He said: “I knew the previous owners for a number of years and I saw the opportunity to breathe fresh life into the club for its members.

“The whole transaction went very smoothly and since we completed the painters and decorators have arrived at the clubhouse to freshen it up.

“My main priority is to ensure the golf course itself is excellently maintained and provides an excellent course for our members and their guests to enjoy week after week.”

The Hamptworth Golf and Country Club hosts weddings and public events and has a members-only gym. It also has a history of hosting top croquet tournaments.

Gabor Kovacs, who handled the purchase of the business, added: “It is good to know that Hamptworth will get the investment it needs to ensure it has a bright future ahead of it, and that it can maintain its position as one of the most picturesque golf courses in the region, and a top five facility for croquet.

“We were very pleased to be able to assist in the purchase of the business on behalf of Carl Faulds, and we wish him every success in the future.”

On Portland’s website, Faulds states: ‘[I have] over 24 years experience at the front line of helping businesses with financial and commercial issues. I formed the Portland group of businesses to offer a different perspective. Whether the issue is a problem with an unsuitable lease, a group restructuring for tax reasons, a cashflow issue including intelligent debt collection or a simple or complex business recovery assignment, we have the dedicated team and financial tools make the difference.

‘I have owned and operated a number of businesses and I know how tough that can be and the blood sweat and tears involved. If you want someone in your corner that not only understands what matters to you, but will support you, is tenacious and has the expertise to help, I am your man.

‘Outside of work, I am a family man with three children, two dogs and a number of tropical fish. I enjoy the occasional game of five-a-side football, but my main sporting interest is playing golf.’
