Golf Lawyer - Partial Interest Sale

Selling a partial interest in a golf club needs to be correctly undertaken and reviewed, such that the integrity and efficiency of the golf course are best served. This means only divesting those elements that are necessary to satisfy the prospective purchaser in completing the sales transaction, but otherwise eliminating or otherwise restricting the transference of all other rights or interests in the golf course.

As legal structuring is imperative, given the implications associated with unknowingly conferring to much, in the way of rights and/or benefits through the partial sale of an interest in the golf course. For the stark reality is that most individuals seeking to acquire a partial interest in a golf course will be satisfied with the form of sale and not seek to haggle for those minor rights when undertaking their buy-in. However, if they are conferred by ownership, it will be next to impossible for majority ownership to get those rights and benefits back from the minority owner without providing something in exchange, if that even proves possible. As such, it is essential that you full understand what is being conferred in a partial interest sale, especially when it is not necessarily evident from the wording.
