Wymondham Golf  Club, Norfolk.

First appeared in 1904.

The club had disappeared before WW1.

The following report is from the Eastern Daily Press Wednesday 28th December 1904. – “The Wymondham Golf Club has now been started in earnest, and the course of nine-holes is in good order. In the first competition Mr Alex Fowler was awarded first prize, and Mr E W Routh Clarke and Dr. Lowe tied for second place. The course measures a mile and a quarter as the crow flies, but when the distances from the tee grounds to the holes are considered, it measures about two miles. Considering the bad weather lately and what the green-keeper has had to contend with, the course may fairly be described as good. The membership is now about 60, but considering the many advantages of the course and the lowness of the subscription, the number ought to be doubled. John M Pomeroy is secretary of the club.”

The annual meeting of the Wymondham Golf Club was held in the Church Schoolroom in October 1908. In the absence of the president, E F R Clarke, the treasurer, H L Cubitt, occupied the chair and produced the balance sheet, which was considered very satisfactory. The course had been greatly improved and it was hoped more members would compete in competitions.
