Aylesbury golf club to close amid HS2 negotiations

A golf club in Aylesbury is closing, amidst negotiations with HS2.

Aylesbury Park Golf Club, on Fairford Leys, will cease trading on Sunday.

The move seems sudden, by administrators say they have been in discussion with HS2 Limited for a while.

In a statement, Gareth James Lewis of Lewis Business Recovery and Insolvency said:

"[I] was appointed Administrator of Aylesbury Park Golf Club Limited ("the Company") on 25 March 2019.

"Whist discussions and negotiations with HS2 Limited were ongoing, without formal agreement, the Directors regrettably had no alternative but to place the Company into Administration.

"The Administrator will continue those negotiations with HS2 Limited in relation to future occupation of the land, but the business will cease to trade and the golf course will close with effect from 31 March 2019."

HS2 is due to cut through the land, as it passes Aylesbury.

The club is next to the Fairford Leys football pitches and Hartwell House estate.
