Stowell Park Golf Club, Northleach.
A private course situated on the Vestey Estate at Stowell Park near Northleach.
Brian Munday recalls “It fell into disuse during WW2 when the estate was taken over by Canadian officers. I played my first golf shot after the war when the butler to the Vesteys gave me a hickory 2 iron that I still have. The course was used for grazing sheep which helped to keep the grass short. There was also an excellent cricket ground on the estate”
I have contacted the Stowell Park Estate and they confirm that there was a golf course there but unfortunately no records exist. They did say that the cart horse used for mowing the fairways and greens wore the special shoes to avoid damaging the turf, these accessories were quite common at the time.
