From the same newspaper as above the unfortunate loss for the Reverend gives us a bit of a clue to the location of the golf course.

“Lost on the Stapleford Golf Links, between Steeple Langford and Berwick St James, a silver hunter watch and chain, with gold medal and trinkets attached. Anyone returning to the Rev. G Hext, Steeple Langford, will be rewarded.”

In 1902 it was listed as having  an 18-hole course.

The club disappeared before WW1.
