LEISURE LAKES 18 HOLE GOLF COURSE APPROVED
Source: Lancashire Evening Post

A new 18 hole golf course has been given permission to open at Leisure Lakes in Mere Brow.

It is the latest in a series of plans to redevelop the recreational site, which will also see 50 chalets built in woodland, and a new central amenity building.

The complex already has a nine hole golf course and 18 bay driving range, which currently operates as Southport Golf Academy.

But bosses say the additional 18-hole course is necessary to stop young talent leaving the area.

Leisure Lakes owner Philip Whitter said: “The academy is superb, the best in the area, and we get 350-400 new golfers coming through it every year.

“The nine-hole course is fantastic to practice on, but when you get better, it’s too easy.

“We lose a tremendous amount of players to other courses, so we’re very pleased that this will allow us to attract more people into Leisure Lakes, boosting the local economy.

Source: Secretary to the Tarleton Endowed School Trust

The Trustees of Tarleton Endowed School Trust invite persons under the age of 25 who are, or who have a parent or parents, resident within the boundaries of Tarleton Parish, and who are in need of financial assistance, to apply for a grant towards their educational (including social and physical) training costs.

Youth Clubs and similar charitable organisations, based within the Parish of Tarleton that provide services to the target group outlined above, are also welcome to apply for a grant. However, it must be noted that the Trustees will give a higher priority to individual rather than group applications.

Application forms, for individuals and groups, are available from Tarleton Library.

Completed forms must be received by the Secretary, at the address shown above, by Tuesday 30th September 2014.

The Trustees will consider all applications in early October. The funds available to the Trust are limited and if you have not heard from the Trustees by the end of October 2013 you should assume that your application has been unsuccessful.

The Trustees decision is final and no correspondence and/or dialogue will be entered into regarding individual applications.
