The owners of Castle Park in East Lothian have moved to clarify comments made by their club manager in an interview with bunkered.co.uk last week.


Contrary to those suggestions, owners Jim and Lorna Wilson have stressed that the club will not close if a buyer cannot be found within three months.

In a statement, they said: “It is true that the course is up for sale due to retirement but we are definitely not ‘facing a desperate fight for survival’ and there is no time-scale on the sale.”
"This is a beautiful course, much loved by members and visitors alike."

Adding that there has already been some interest in the club - referred to in some quarters as the ‘Gleneagles of East Lothian’ - the Wilsons added: “This is a beautiful course, much loved by members and visitors alike, and we are hoping that the business will continue as a golf course in the future.

“If anyone is interested in purchasing this hidden gem from us and would like to know more about it, we would be delighted to speak to them on 07767 148277.”
