The European Golf Tour could tee up in Doncaster after it was announced Rossington Hall is being considering as a location for a new tournament destination.

The scheme which is being pulled together by a consortium of local land owners could see the site transformed into a world class golf complex and resort under the PGA European Tour banner.

The project would include an international tournament quality 18 hole golf course, a top class 18 hole club course, a club house, leisure facilities, luxury homes set alongside the course.

Road infrastructure improvements to support the plans and public footpaths would also form patr of the plans as well as cycle routes and bridleways so existing and new residents living close by can enjoy the wide variety of green space, parkland and lakes.

Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies, said: ”It is a great honour that the European Tour is considering Doncaster for the expansion of their network of carefully selected golf destinations.

“The attractive site at Rossington Hall is a perfect location for tournament golf, being minutes from Doncaster’s international airport and close to the planned link road leading to the national motorway network.”

An outline planning application for the project should be submitted later this year and, subject to appropriate approvals, work could start within two years.
