Thorpe Satchville Golf Club. 

In April 1911 it was reported in the Grantham Journal in  Hunting Notes that "Reynard was thus able to establish a more substantial lead as he made is way over the Thorpe Satchville golf links." 

In the Derby Daily Telegraph on Monday 30th September 1912 it stated that Mr Lloyd George, who is on a visit to Baron de Forest at Gaddesby,  motored to the Thorpe Satchville golf links on Saturday.

The style of the above button's lettering is of that favoured by the hunting fraternity so it may have been a private course in the grounds of the hall. The families in residence during the late Victorian and Edwardian eras were the Leighs and the Pagets, both 'hunting' families. The button is gilt flat, single piece and has Pitt's POST 1895 address, 31 Maddox Street. Thanks to Dixon Pickup. 

The golf course is clearly marked on the Ordnance Survey of Great Britain New Popular Edition, Sheet 122 - Melton Mowbray. 

The Google Map below pinpoints the location of the former course.
