Is Wildwood in the bunker?

Here we were at the Waverley Web thinking that Alfold’s beleaguered Wildwood Golf club was teeing off again…

Because a message went out to members on Thursday inviting them around for a game of golf. The message said the bar was open and there was a limited food menu available. So we all polished the mud off our clubs loaded the bag in the back of the car and…    then.. we received other messages…
Word is now out that Wildwood will be attending a hearing in court at 10am tomorrow – Monday 10th – to go into administration; it has been called in by the company’s auditors. Here is the latest charge is on the Companies House Website. 

 The company it is named against is Midos GC Limited – yet another property company with directors names all appearing to be of the same “ilk” as Simcha Green.

Also, word is – and this is NOT confirmed – might be a bunch of hacked off old golfers gossiping – that once it is in administration it is quickly being scooped up and purchased by – you guessed it, Simcha Green but also with  others – ‘unknown.’

But we here at the Waverley Web do not want to be accused of handing out Fake News – because we pride ourselves on checking everything that appears on a Post.  If we get it wrong – and we admit we have once or twice we have, we apologise and we correct the information.

All we hope is that Alfold  gets its Wildwood – back!

Has Alfold’s Wildwood Golf Club gone into the rough?

 

 

Are there plans afoot to drag Wildwood out of a big hole?

The jungle telegraph wires have been humming with the revelation that Alfold’s Wildwood Golf club has gone into the rough over there in the East of the borough.

Here’s one we read earlier:Screen Shot 2017-03-10 at 21.44.30

Click here to readHas Alfold’s Wildwood Golf Club gone into the rough? Here at the Waverley Web we believe there are many issues and situations that some people would much prefer were buried in the bunkers. Bit like ‘Your Waverley Council’ where they do it all the time!

However,  when people’s lives, livelihoods, businesses  and their very survival are at stake – we believe it is in the public interest to tell people what is going on around them  and as Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington once said, – “Publish and be damned.”

As you will see from the above comment, feelings are running very high and it would appear that the head honcho at Wildwood Simcha Green is the new owner and those mentioned in yesterday’s post are the Consultant Managing Company Pathway Projects Limited. In fact, there are fewer roads at Birmingham’s Spaghetti junction than there are  individuals/companies/solicitors sitting in the Wildwood bunker!  

By the way don’t bother phoning, e-mailing or trying to address them – because you will probably not succeed (unless of course the Surrey Ad reads this post – they do it all the time, and succeeds in contacting them.)

As the bills, summonses, Court Writs continue to slip through Wildwood’s doors,with monotonous regularity,  suppliers have been seen carrying their goods and products out of the buildings. Some of these have contacted the Waverley Web at  contact@waverleyweb.org  claiming their businesses are being seriously affected, others say if only they had received some explanation/communication from the new owners, they may have been willing to bide their time before reclaiming goods.One told the WW – ‘communication has been non-existent.’

Some Wildwood staff are staying on to field the phones, despite not having been paid for more than three months.

The Waverley Web apologises to the former Directors Phil and Louise Harrison who are not in Spain, as we had been led to believe , but are sticking it out at their home near Wildwood working around the clock in a frantic bid to rescue the club.    When it was sold they, and their dedicated staff , had high hopes that a multi-million planning application, which received the go ahead by Waverley Planners over five years ago, would at last come to fruition and they would see in a new era for the club.

It is believed the owner  wants to take a driver  to get rid of the club  as soon as possible and every effort is being made by others, to secure it future.

Let’s all hope the club, which has raised many thousands pounds for charities, and provided golf to millions can ensure players continue to tee off at the popular Surrey course.

Has Alfold’s Wildwood Golf Club gone into the rough?

IT’S ALL HAPPENING NEAR DUNSFOLD PARK!

WILDWOOD ON THE ROCKS?

The popular golf club on the Surrey/Sussex border with approved plans to build a £35 million pound hotel development and a multi-million pound PGA golf academy  – is about to go into liquidation.

Club members, staff and suppliers are reeling from the shock that the club, which was sold to wealthy foreign buyers a few months ago,  has run into serious financial difficulties. Some say by accident – others by design!Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 14.19.15.png

Staff, including groundsmen, catering and office staff have either been given notice to quit or have not been  paid since before Christmas. Some have young families. Ground equipment has been re-possessed and food, drink and various other suppliers have not been paid. Weddings and events planned throughout the year have been cancelled – leaving couples angry and out-of-pocket.

Members of the club at Alfold Crossway are shocked and “ANGRY”   that, despite repeated attempts to contact the owners for an explanation, they are being ignored.

Some are claiming back their golf memberships from their credit card providers, others are writing to the club’s  Solicitors ABGM Solicitors 74 Brent Street, London NW4 2ES.020 8202 5060.

Former director Phil and Louise Harrison, and other  family members who previously worked for the club, have left for a home in Spain, after telling the few staff that remained at the club – that it was – “all over.”

The couple from the North of England worked tirelessly over many years to keep the Wildwood Show on the road whilst investors/new owners were sought to carry through their ambitious plans to make Wildwood a mecca for golf. The PGA Junior golf academy was predicted to have plans to set up home there and Hilton Hotels was widely mentioned as the hotel operator.

Now it appears everything has crashed around the ears of the former directors, and there is complete silence from the new boys on the block! The Directors are listed below;  one of whom has been banned from holding any company  directorships! 

Three local charities that held an event at the club last September  have not received any of the monies raised – one of which – a children’s cancer charity – has brought in the police to investigate, what they are describing as a “disgusting fraud.”

Rachel Clunie the former events and marketing manager who was given instant notice  without any explanation last December said to rob a children’s charity that fundraised for child  cancer –  was one of the most horrible things she  could imagine. “These people are absolute filth, anyone that can rob babies and young  children, without hair and ravaged by this awful disease and the accompannying  aggressive treatment deserves to rot – and she claims, so far, her attempts to ‘Interest’ Guildford police have gone absolutely “nowhere.” She said – “they are simply not interested in local fraud.

The other charities involved are the Retired Racehorse Association and Cranleigh Football Club. The Charity night raised many thousands of pounds from an Auction, and sponsorship the  raffle alone  raised in excess of £2,000.

Rumours running rife around the club members, predict the club will go into administration within days and then the site will be the subject of a planning application for many hundreds of houses!

The site on the A281 Horsham Road is just a stones throw from the 100 homes to be built in Loxwood Road, 465 homes now at Appeal by Thakeham Homes on the Care Ashore land at Springbok and a quarter of a mile from Dunsfold airfield – which has been earmarked for 2,600 homes,  1,800 of which have been granted permission by Waverley Planners and which has now been called in for  a public inquiry by the Secretary of State. 

The owners are not responding to any communications at the time this post was published.
