England: Elvaston Castle renovation to yield 27-hole golf course

Work is scheduled to begin next summer on a €35 million renovation of the historic Elvaston Castle in Derbyshire into a resort hotel.

The renovation will include development of a new 27-hole golf course on approximately 120 acres of adjoining land, according to plans announced by Highgate Sanctuary, the project's developer.

Highgate officials will submit an official application to the South Derbyshire District Council this fall, and both the hotel and golf course are expected to open some time in 2011.

England: Luddington looks to develop in Hertfordshire

Luddington Investments, a London-based golf course owner and operator, is moving forward with plans to convert a partially constructed golf course covering 160 acres in Hertfordshire into the Centurion Club, a high-end, 18-hole, par-72 course measuring 6,805 yards in length.

The company will seek to raise €1.95 million in investment capital required to purchase the existing golf course and surrounding land. Interested investors are being asked for a minimum €40,000 commitment.
