Unnamed American firm expresses interest in UK golf market to Parkwood Holdings

A major American company has expressed interest in the UK golf market, according to Parkwood Holdings executive chairman Tony Hewitt.

Hewitt told HW the unnamed company — which runs 110 pay-and-play courses in the US — had asked his advice on the state of the UK market, with a view to expanding into Britain.

Parkwood Holdings, which owns Glendale Horticulture, runs eight pay-and-play courses of its own.

Hewitt recently told HW that Glendale was also interested in golfing opportunities.

He said: "We’re looking at the golf market with more renewed interest at the moment — there are plenty of golf courses for sale."
