Peterborough Gordon/Weedon/Walton Golf Club.

The original Peterborough Gordon Golf Club had a 9 hole course and was founded in 1894. Peterborough Gordon continued until the early 1920s. In 1922 Peterborough Weedon Golf Club appears but this name was short lived, about a year later Peterborough Walton comes on to the scene, at the same location. The nine-hole course at Walton adjoined the railway station. The club at Walton continued well into the 1930s and probably closed towards the outbreak of WW2.
