Lancashire golf course application submitted

MAZE Planning Solutions has submitted a planning application for development of an 18 hole golf course at Leisure Lakes, near Southport.

Leisure Lakes has facilities for camping, caravanning, walking, cycling, fishing, equestrian, golf, football, jet-ski and jet-boat activities, supported by cafes, a pub, children's outdoor play area and recently added Jollies Barn, a brand new indoor play centre.

The leisure park has an existing 9 hole golf course, 18 bay driving range, golf shop and professional tuition provided by Southport Golf Academy.  The proposed 18 hole course will site alongside the established golfing facilities covering an area of almost 56 hectares (138 acres), set within a retained landscape framework of existing fields, hedgerows and drainage ditches which will provide the basis for new water bodies and woodlands, with significant benefits for ecology and biodiversity.
