SAVE ALLESTREE PARK GOLF COURSE

Derby City Council says a potential buyer  has been identified for Allestree Hall - but that they had no interest in taking on the golf course.

Over 16000 rounds of golf are played on the course each year, making it affordable for normal people, unlike expensive and exclusive private courses.

Without the golf, the parkland will turn into long grass and scrub, and will no longer be able to be enjoyed by walkers and residents. 

Long serving ground staff will be kicked out if their jobs. 

Conservative Councillor Robin Wood, cabinet member for leisure, culture and tourism, said: “It’s very difficult to justify the council spending a significant amount of money to make the golf course viable when there are many alternatives in the area."

We disagree. KEEP ALLESTREE PARK GOLF COURSE OPEN.
