Ashfield Land has developed considerable expertise in land assembly over our 30+ years of successful trading and the Two 74 scheme is a tremendous example.
Taking a long-term view, we pieced together various sites totally approximately 20 acres over a number of years adjacent to what was then proposed as the new J2 to the M74 motorway, which is approximately a 10 minute drive into Glasgow city centre, and one mile east of Rutherglen Town Centre.
With considerable and varying interest over the years, we concluded a deal with the world-class international leisure brand, Topgolf, welcoming them to Scotland, the ‘home of golf.
The Topgolf ‘offer’ uses micro-chipped golf balls that players drive towards a series of feature illuminated holes along with a number of other challenges. It is a leisure offer that attracts a wide range of customers and it is not necessary to be an experienced or even barely competent golfer, attracting a broad private and corporate customer base.
The Topgolf facility will be an exciting addition to the region’s leisure mix which includes The Emirates arena, the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome, Celtic Park and the Cunnigar Loop country park.
Ashfield Land is working with Luddon Construction and a great local team of consultants including Cooper Cromar Architects, Will Rudd Davidson Engineers, DSSR Consulting, Andrew Carrie Transportation, Turley, and Currie & Brown.
The project is currently under construction having been affected in its early stages by Covid-19, and latterly by the effect of Brexit, and is scheduled to complete in 2022.

This development is an exciting addition to the Ashfield Land portfolio of investments and we very much look forward to delivering more Topgolf facilities across the UK.
