Wellington College Golf Club, Shropshire.

Wellington College Golf Club was founded in 1901 by John Bailey who was principal at the Wrekin Colllege. It was the first club in Wellington and the initial nine hole course was laid out on land adjacent to the college. At this time it was mainly for the use of pupils and masters but some locals were permitted to play.
