Closure Announcement

Joint statement between Coventry Sports Trust and Coventry City Council:

“It is with regret that we have to announce that Brandon Wood Golf Course will not reopen once lockdown ends on Wednesday 2 December 2020.

“The golf course is operated by Coventry Sports Trust on land owned by Coventry City Council and has been loss-making for some time. These challenges have been exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Coventry City Council has in the past supported the Trust with additional funding so that the facility could remain open. However, with well-documented financial pressure faced by the local authority, it cannot provide ongoing financial support – a position Coventry Sports Trust understands.

“Therefore, Coventry Sports Trust has decided that the facility is no longer viable to operate without additional funding. A consultation period has started with staff affected by this decision.

“Coventry City Council will now start an options appraisal on the future of the facility. This will include exploring whether a golf course can be sustained or whether there should be an alternative use for the site.

“The Council will continue to work with Coventry Sports Trust and provide support where it can in what continues to be an exceptionally difficult operating environment. The Council also remains committed to promoting sport and wellbeing which can be seen in the £60million investment in new facilities in recent years as well as its Keep Coventry Moving campaign.

“Moat House Leisure Centre in Wood End, which is also operated by Coventry Sports Trust, remains unaffected and will reopen as planned on Wednesday 2 December.”
