Essendon Place Golf Club, Herts. (1930s - 1970s)

The club first appeared in issues of  The Golfer's Handbook in the 1930s and continued until the 1970s. It was a repetitive entry and gave only the name of the club and professional.

The professional was A J Callaby (also spelt Caliby) who continued through to the 1960s. 

A J Callaby played in the Open Championship qualifiers at Royal St George’s in June 1934. He had a disappointing score of 88 in the first round, see below.
