Market Drayton Golf Club.

The club was founded in 1906. 

The club had three sites prior to the move to their current course in 1926.

We have found reference for two of the three, an earlier course at Adderley, and the course at Longslow in the 1920s . 

Below is the result of a match played at Adderley against Wellington Golf Club in March 1910.
