Baslow Grand Hotel Golf Club, Derbyshire.

Founded 1896, the Baslow Grand Hotel and Hydro was a 9 hole course laid out in the hotel’s beautiful grounds of 20 acres overlooking Chatsworth. Club membership was 35. Visitors to the hotel paid 1/-a day and 5/- a week, others paid 1/6 a day, 7/6 a week. The stations were at Bakewell 4 miles and Grindleford 5 miles away. Sunday play was allowed without caddies.

An open tournament was held on the Baslow course during Xmas week 1904, 65 players entered. Not the best of conditions, which is not that surprising, the ground was frozen and a thick haze hung around most of the time. Results are listed below.
