Bleakdown Golf Club, Byfleet, Surrey.
Professional from 1905 to 1907 was Cuthbert S Butchart (who designed the course), and from 1907 until 1913 F H Frostick. In 1914 the secretary was F M Ashley and the professional was C Tooley, who took over in 1913 and remained until 1917. An 18 hole course laid out on undulating ground with sandy soil which meant that it was always dry even in very wet weather. The hazards were numerous and natural. The length of the course was over 6,000 yards. There was a membership of 350. Entry fees for gents were £10/10/0. There was no entry fee for ladies. The Subs were gents £5/5/0 and ladies £4/4/0, five day members paid £3/3/0. Visitors’ fees were 2/6 a day, 2/6 at weekends, on introduction only. No Lady visitors were allowed on Sundays.
