FINAL BID TO SAVE DYING DENHAM GOLF CLUB GATHERS MOMENTUM

A petition to save Great Denham Golf Club has received over 1,700 signatures since it was launched at the start of July.

The club is due to close on October 16 when the current leaseholder’s tenure expires. In  a phone conversation between Kempston Rural councillor Jim Weir and Bidwells, the agent for the landowners, it was confirmed that the land will be given over to livestock grazing or hay production but has the potential for future residential development.

In response, Cllr Weir has set up the petition, saying: “Residents of Great Denham and the whole of Bedford Borough, please support us in trying to reverse the landowner’s decision to close the club and prepare the land for housing development.

“A great community sporting and open green space facility is in grave danger of being lost. We need your support and we ask the Borough Council to ensure that all the policies regarding Urban Open Space and Urban Gap are reinforced and strengthened to ensure this open space is not lost to residential development.”

There are over 30,000 rounds of golf played at the club each year and it is home to the largest senior section of any club in Bedfordshire, with over 100 members playing each week.
