Future of Marland Golf Course to be heard at cabinet meeting

Date published: 28 February 2019

The future of Marland Golf Course will be discussed at a forthcoming cabinet meeting.

Current operator Link4Life has said the running of the course is “no longer viable” for the charity and will no longer run it from 1 April 2019.

A plan put forward to save the golf club was rejected by Rochdale Borough Council earlier this month.

Andrea Fallon, the council’s director of public health and wellbeing, said: “A decision about Marland Golf Course is likely to be made at a future meeting of the council’s cabinet committee.

“Further discussions have been held and although the council can no longer subsidise this facility, we are doing what we can to ensure that a positive outcome can be achieved.”

The next cabinet committee meeting is scheduled for 18 March but the agenda for that meeting has not been made public so it is not known yet whether Marland Golf Course will be discussed at that meeting.
