KNIGHTS Grange Golf Club in Winsford has closed, it has been announced. 

The closure comes as the club's operator Mack Golf has ceased trading with immediate effect. 

Mack Golf also operated Hooton Golf Club in Ellesmere Port, which has also closed.

Cllr Louise Gittins, cabinet member communities and wellbeing, said: “We were told on Wednesday morning that directors of the company had announced the immediate cessation of trading at all of their UK businesses.

“We are waiting to hear from the receivers that have been appointed to act on their behalf and currently the golf courses have been closed.

“This is very disappointing news and we are now looking at options for the future running of the courses.”
