A HIGH profile golf resort has gone into provisional liquidation with the loss of 25 jobs.

Inchmarlo Golf Centre, which was opened by Open champion Paul Lawrie in 1994, operated an 18 hole course and driving range in Banchory and also managed a complex of 42 rental villas.

Blair Nimmo of KPMG, who is handling the company’s affairs, said the business had experienced trading difficulties for some time. Although significant funding had been injected by its main shareholder over the past five years, no further investment was available.

The golf course operation has now been closed and is being offered for sale. Five remaining staff are being kept on to assist with the villa rental operation.
