Redbourn Golf Club. (1890s - WW1)

There is a listing for a nine-hole course for Redbourn(e) Golf Club in the 1896-97 Golfing Annual.  

From the 1905 Nisbet’s Golf Yearbook; Hon. secretary and captain – G E Hall, Redbourn; membership of 25; Entrance fee nil and subs 10s; Nine-holes. The course is on a common with natural bunkers.

From The Herts Advertiser Saturday 13th October 1906. “Golf Club’s Annual Meeting – The annual meeting of the Redbourn Golf Club was held on Saturday, Mr R C Peake J.P., being in the chair. There were also present; Mr Wadmor, Mr Browne, Mr G E Hall, Mr R C Hall, Mr H Miller and Dr F M Bovill. The minutes of the last meeting having been read, H Miller, the hon. treasurer, presented the financial statement, which showed a balance in hand of £9/16s/1d. Mr Miller, treasurer, and G E Hall, secretary, expressed a desire to resign in favour of other members. Mr G E Hall was elected treasurer and Mr R E Hall, secretary. It was resolved that the Cricketers be the headquarters of the club.

A medal play competition for a challenge cup was played on the common in November 1906. The following scores under 100 were returned; R C Peake, 105-14-91; H Markham, 94 scratch; R E Hall, 106-9-97; J S Denny, 129-30-99.

Still searching for further information on this earlier club. It’s probable that it did not survive WW1.
