Stanwick Golf Club.
The club first appeared in 1905. A six-hole course laid out on fields belonging to the “Squire of Stanwick” Mr Wetenall. Following WW1 the Stanwick course was ploughed up and this prompted a move to Rushden where the Rushden & District Golf Club was established in 1919.
Below is the result of a match played at Stanwick against Wellingborough Golf Club in March 1908.
