Founded in 1899, with the Club formed six years later, the original 9-hole course survived many rigours for 66 years when a further 31 acres were acquired. This allowed additional holes to be constructed turning the course into the challenging 18 hole layout that exists today. At 5843 yards, with a par of 69 and a Standard Scratch of 68, the course is not long but compensates by demanding a considerable amount of accuracy and thus provides a good test of golfing ability. Despite its location, most holes offer a flat or gently sloping prospect with only the 17th having anything like a severe slope up to the green. The real challenges can be the quick pace greens in the summer and keeping the ball in the right place for the next shot.
