Royal Norwich Golf Club in the UK has sold its land to a building developer for a reported £17 million.
Members of the club voted in favour of selling the club’s course for redevelopment back in November 2014. Persimmon, which has bought the land, will turn the site into housing, while the club itself will relocate to nearby Weston Park.
“This has been a long process for members, the various committees and individuals who have been involved in the project, but we can finally start the next exciting phase in the development of Royal Norwich,” said David Coventry, the club’s chairman.
Royal Norwich Golf Club will remain open for the next two years as work gets underway on a new 27-hole complex being developed on the site of the current Weston Park course.
