INTERNATIONALLY renowned golfers and hotels have already shown serious interest in Wirral's multimillion pound golf resort proposals for land close to the famous Royal Liverpool Golf Club, council bosses revealed.
Wirral council used the spotlight of the international media during the second day of the Ricoh Women's British Open at Hoylake to re-launch ambitious proposals to make Wirral a key golfing destination.
At a presentation, council bosses outline plans for a new "signature" golf course, five star hotel and spa, and conference facilities on the 300 acre site in Hoylake. Around half of that land is already in council ownership.
Chief executive Graham Burgess said the aim was for Wirral to "capitalise on the fantastic assets we have".
He said: "Even before this launch we have had four or five serious inquiries from world-recognised organisations."
These are understood to include "internationally renowned golfers and hotels" who the council is now asking to work together to come up with viable proposals.
Hours before play was abandoned yesterday in the Women's Open, Mr Burgess also revealed the project could be worth £30m-£40m a year for the local economy.
