The Club was originally founded in 1909 when a nine-hole course was laid out on land rented from the city council and the lord of the manor. The Club became so popular that it was extended to eighteen holes in 1912 and a clubhouse built. The Club's first professional, E. Crook, was engaged in 1911.
In 1979 the Club was able to purchase the land on which the course sits today. Since that time significant changes have taken place which presents our course in its current layout and fine condition.
