Updated: Jul 26, 2021 08:33 AM

After 25 years in business, the Bermuda Golf Academy, Driving Range and Mini Golf Southampton will close in the first week of September, according to operator Richard Farge.

He said a 20-year lease had already expired but the lease had been temporarily extended.

At 320 meters, the driving range at 10 Industrial Park Road has the longest golf driving range on the island.

There are 40 practice bays and a sand trap for practicing the bunker game.

The Generosas dining car that operated on the property has already moved to Front Street.

When we spoke to him, Mr. Farge was busy preparing furniture and other items for sale. He could not tell the intended future use for the land.

Bordering SAL Ltd. and The Wadson’s Farm, the property was a dairy farm in the 1950s and was once used by the US Naval Base as a dumping ground.

The seven acres, Mr. Farge said, are zoned open spaces. The property is owned by David Oliveira and has been in his family for some time.

Mr. Oliveira, a financial adviser, was not available for comment.
