Golf fans now have the chance to purchase something they’ve never been able to purchase before, a historical golf course. Currently the Rhos-On-Sea Golf Club & Hotel located within Llandudno, Wales is currently on sale for one million euros. Whomever purchases this historic golf club resort will be met with ninety-nine acres of parkland, a clubhouse that is two stories high. The clubhouse has functional smoking rooms, a bar, fifteen suite hotel rooms and a kitchen staff. This is an astonishing deal for any millionaire looking into a new business.
The reasoning for this golf course being historic is that it was developed by Mr. W H Goldsmith. He purchased the land from the Rhyd Family, the family had operated the farm for hundreds of years, generation after generation before it was sold to Mr. Goldsmith. The original farmhouse was redesigned as a clubhouse for one hundred and five years, where some of the most notable generals who’d participate in WWI & WWII drank and played golf. During 1905 it was demolished to make way for the building which currently stands today. During both wars the clubhouse often saw soldiers under her Queen’s armed forced drink and partake in the festivities.
There are two major investors in this plot of land right now. Both have plans to add a number of new elements to the sea-side golf course. The first will be adding a variety of new facilities such as a swimming pool, a gym and conference rooms. There could even be the possibility of a brand new clubhouse, set with dozens of new rooms. This in turn would drive up business as booking for this golf course is difficult to say the least due to its fifteen rooms.
