A Tarleton businessman has signed a lease with Leisure Lakes to manage the golf site situated mid-way between Preston and Southport in the west Lancashire village.
The site comprises a club house alongside a 20-acre driving range and nine-hole golf course.
Businessman Richard Carpenter has agreed on a ten year lease at £52,000 a year to manage the site, which has been renamed The Southport Golf Academy.
Carpenter said: "Throughout 2011 we plan to make ongoing improvements to the academy, in order to offer exceptional teaching and practice facilities for golfers of all ages and abilities."
Mike Redshaw, director of Nolan Redshaw, who was instructed by Leisure Lakes last month to market the golf academy, added: "This was an unusual site to bring to the market, but we received strong enquiries for the premises from the start. The site's presence on an established leisure complex was a big attraction to the new operators."
Nolan Redshaw has also been instructed to market a 6,000 sq ft industrial unit situated at the front of the Leisure Lakes complex and is also retained to market leisure opportunities on the rest of the complex.
Nolan Redshaw is sole letting agent on the estate.
