Cleveleys & Rossall Golf Club, Fleetwood, Lancs. (1914 -1940)

The club was appearing in a town guide prior to WW1, it continued until 1940.

Following is an extract from a report from the Liverpool Echo in August 1915 – “Golfers are to the “fore” in their help of Red Cross Hospitals. The Cleveleys & Rossall Golf club have arranged an attractive match for the 21st of August. The players will be three professionals; Harry Simpson of St Annes, third in the Open Campionship 1914; Arthur Simpson of Knott End; D McKenzie, Cleveleys Hydro; and J D Birnie the Cleveleys amateur.”

In the match Arthur Simpson of Knott End created a new record for the course; Out – 4,3,3,4,3,3,4,5,3 = 32; Home – 4,4,4,2,4,3,5,6,3 = 35;  Total 67. There were about 600 spectators and it was expected that the sum raised for the Red Cross would be between £50 and £60.

In 1931 the club captain was A J Bardsley.
