HIP Plc appointed as preferred bidder for the development of Stanley Park Golf Course site in Blackpool
- 21st Century redeveloped golf offering.
- Flagship venue for David Lloyd's new venture, Adrenalin World.
- Up to 250 new holiday lodges to be developed.
- Total of £45m GBP development.
- Approximately 150 jobs created across the site.
Holmes Investment Properties Plc (Berlin: J16), the UK property investment company focused on the leisure sector, is pleased to announce jointly with Blackpool Council, that it has been appointed as the preferred bidder to develop the Stanley Park Golf Course.
As part of the agreement the site, currently an operational golf course, will be developed to deliver a new golf offering that will be the pride of the golf club members, featuring a leisure and entertainment offering. Appointing Colin Jenkins, GRN Consulting (www.golfconsult.co.uk), as Golf Development Consultant, and in consultation with the Golf Club Committee Representatives, HIP plans to install state of the art practice facilities, including the best technology from TopTracer and Power Tees. HIP will also redevelop the remaining 11 holes to offer a 9-hole course with an emphasis on 6 of those holes to offer a unique Golf Sixes Venue, which will be aimed at increasing participation and retaining existing golfers. Development of the clubhouse and member / visitor facilities remains within the wider plans.
The east of the site is set to be split into two developments: the new indoor & outdoor, family entertainment, multi-activity Adrenalin World (www.adrenalinworld.co.uk) and 250 holiday lodges and associated facilities.
Adrenalin World, the new leisure venture from ex-GB Tennis star and leisure entrepreneur, David Lloyd, to be managed and operated by David Lloyd's Adventure Parks Limited, will offer a broad range of over 20 activities, both indoor and outdoor, to ensure that there are activities suitable for all. The Adrenalin World site will be a destination for the area, creating more than 100 jobs and ensuring year-round entertainment for local residents and tourists alike. HIP has an exclusive agreement to develop a further nine Adrenalin World sites, alongside its other leisure businesses which include World of Golf (Croydon) and Everyone Entertained Limited.
"This is a great boom for the town, delivering considerable employment prospects for the area with the creation of 100 jobs at Adrenalin World and at the same time bringing in more visitors and promoting the beauty of Blackpool. We believe this will be a brilliant addition to the amenities on offer in a superb easy-to-access location. We can't wait to get started."
Cllr Mark Smith, Cabinet Member for Business, Enterprise and Job Creation, commented:
This is a fantastic investment in the both the existing golf course and a new leisure offer with associated accommodation. It would create new jobs and boost the local economy. David Lloyd is a name synonymous with high-quality leisure attractions, I've no doubt that Adrenalin World would be hugely popular with both residents and visitors."
I know a lot of local residents have been keen to know the full details of the proposals and I hope this reassures them that HIP are committed to working with the golf club to retain the western side of the course and improve the facilities. Residents will have a chance to have their say and raise any concerns when the planning application is submitted.
"With golf important to the area, we are also seeking to improve the sporting experience by significantly upgrading the facilities and attracting more players. This project will be HIP's second investment within golf, following the acquisition of World of Golf, Croydon, in early 2018. Since acquiring World of Golf, HIP has invested in the experience, which has led to a 20% increase in customer usage. We now look forward to working with the golf club committee at Stanley Park to ensure that the game thrives in the future and that we deliver an excellent proposition that the members can be proud of."
