Leamington golf course forced to close

Warwick District Council say they're very disappointed after Newbold Comyn golf course in Leamington was forced to close.

The company who ran it pulled out of their contract - meaning it shut this week.

The authority say it's against their wishes and they're trying to find a way to get it open again.

Here's the statement:

"Warwick District Council regrets to advise that in breach of its contract, Mack Golf has ended its operation of Newbold Comyn Golf course as from 31 December 2017. For the avoidance of doubt, the action taken by Mack has not been agreed by Warwick District Council. Mack Golf has offered the following email address for any inquiries: info@macktrading.net

As a result of Mack’s actions, the golf course and pitch and putt is closed until further notice. Members of the public are not permitted to play golf on the course as this activity could be hazardous to other park users, however designated footpaths will remain open to the general public.

Councillor Michael Coker, Portfolio Holder for Culture said: “I am very disappointed by Mack’s actions and I am consulting with colleagues about our next
steps. I have not been happy with Mack’s performance for quite a while now so unfortunately this comes as little surprise, despite the effort the Council’s officers and I have put into trying to turn things around.”

Customers are advised to look at the Warwick District Council website for the latest information in relation to the golf course www.warwickdc.gov.uk\Leisure."
