0 Huntercombe Golf Club to build housing by its course

Huntercombe GCHuntercombe Golf Club in Oxfordshire is the latest golf club to hope to build houses on its land to fund improvements to its facilities.

The venue has applied for planning permission to build eight homes, two of which will be used to house golf club staff.

Huntercombe wants to demolish two existing properties that house members of staff, on a 0.59-hectare piece of land, to make way for the development of two-, three- and four-bedroom properties.

The entrance road to the golf course is currently used to access the two properties.

In an outline application to South Oxfordshire District Council, the planning authority, the club says two of the new houses would be retained for the key workers at the club and the other six would be sold on the open market.

The planning statement says: "Planning permission is sought for residential development which will directly fund a number of fundamental improvements to the golf club to secure its future.

"In so doing, these improvements will directly benefit the local economy in terms attracting more visitors to the area."

The improvements would include modernisation of the clubhouse, bunker renovation, rebuilding of tees, upgrading practice facilities, enlarging the pro shop, creating more buggy storage and upgrading the irrigation system.
