Ownership change for Isle of Wight crazy golf course

One of the most popular tourist attractions on the Isle of Wight has changed hands.

The Esplanade crazy golf and putting attraction in Shanklin is now set to be managed by local businessman Dean Hyatt, after the Isle of Wight Council asked for people to come forward to take over some of the services it used to run.

George Brown, the cabinet member responsible for leisure, stated he was pleased to be able to reveal the deal.

"Not only is this good for the council as it saves the local authority money, but the businesses are able to expand their services and it also creates further employment for the summer months," he said.

The Isle of Wight Council is also set to announce deals regarding the future of other tourist attractions on the island such as Sandham Gardens in Sandown.

Golf is a popular activity for those on Isle of Wight holidays, with courses on offer in Cowes, Newport, Ryde, Osborne and Freshwater Bay.
