The development is being headed up by the Robert, the son of owners Bobby and Beth Forrester believe it to be the largest private family investment in Scotland for years.
Mr Forrester jun said, “For the last 16 years we have been developing the golf course and now the idea is to create an international resort of five-star quality.The focus will be on ‘Destination Forrester Park’ and promoting the family leisure side of the business.”
