Celtic Manor in talks to run proposed Hoylake golf resort

ONE of the biggest names in golf is engaged in "detailed discussions" to manage the proposed Hoylake golf resort.

Next week, Wirral's Cabinet will consider a report setting out the next stages of the plan to build the £190m international golf resort in Hoylake.

The report reveals that Celtic Manor; the company behind the South Wales luxury resort which hosted the 2010 Ryder Cup and 2014 NATO summit; are in talks with the Jack Nicklaus Joint Venture Group to manage the hotel and conference centre.

Leader of Wirral Council, Cllr Phil Davies said:- "Hoylake Golf Resort will be an iconic international project bringing new jobs, prosperity and tourists to Wirral, boosting our economy and visitor numbers. It reflects the bold ambitions we have for Wirral and to have industry-leading organisations like Celtic Manor exploring the possibilities is encouraging. Tourism is an important part of our growth plan, and supports our pledges around a vibrant economy and job creation. We already know the power of golf to attract investment and international visitors to Wirral from our experiences hosting what are widely considered to have been two of the most successful British Opens in recent years."

In July 2015, Cabinet agreed to appoint the Joint Venture Group of legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus as its preferred development partner, and will now be asked to enter into a Framework Development Agreement, to enable the Jack Nicklaus Joint Venture Group to begin drawing up a comprehensive Funding Strategy, to be presented to Council at a later date.

"The next stage is to consult on a range of commercial, technical and legal issues to help us draw up a blueprint for moving forward. We will continue to consult and engage with local residents and other interested parties as we look to move forward in delivering these exciting plans." commented Cllr Davies.

The proposed Hoylake Golf Resort will see 2 new championship golf courses built including the only Jack Nicklaus designed municipal course in the country.  The plans also includes:- a luxury hotel, conference centre and Links Academy, to support Wirral's ambition to be the Capital of UK Links Golf, thus taking the title away from Southport.
