Included with the property is a modern 27,889 sq ft club house, greenkeeper’s building, driving range, bag drop / service hut, putting green, short game practice, car park and two adjacent grass paddocks.
Terms of the sale have not been disclosed but the original guide price was £2.75m.
The buyer is understood to be the owner of Old Thorns Golf & Country Estate near Liphook in Hampshire.
Ian Simpson, director of leisure and trading at Savills, comments: “Having launched Chart Hills in June this year, the speed at which we have successfully completed the transaction reflects the prime quality and location of the golf course, and the opportunity for future development.”
