A prestigious Essex golf club has closed suddenly and temporarily following what it describes as an 'incident' that has taken place between its management and its freeholder.
Weald Park Golf Club failed to open - without notice - on Tuesday, October 2, and has been closed since.
The club was bought by AAF Leisure, which has been committed to a programme of investment, in 2010, and was operating normally up until the closure. It was even selling decade-long subscriptions via a third party the day before it shut.
Following the closure, the club posted three apologetic updates on Twitter stating, for example, 'we are very sorry for the inconveniences caused by this turn of events' and 'we apologise for this [and] are working to rectify things'. However, it did not state what had happened and did not respond to comments - including from people who had booked events such as weddings and golf days at the club.
