Kingsway Golf Club, Scunthorpe. (1971 – 2017) 

The club was founded in 1971. 

The original nine-hole was designed by R D Highfield and measured 3,830 yards (18-holes) with a SSS of 59.

World famous Scunthorpe golfer Tony Jacklin opened the course. 

In the mid 1980s and early 1990s the secretary was R D Highfield and the professional Chris Mann. Visitors’ fees were £1/10p, Juniors and OAPs, 50p (1988) £2 (1991.) 

It was reported in December 2017 that the council owned course would be closing to make way for a proposed country park/nature reserve. The golf club had been making a loss for several years both in playing numbers and financially.

A petition was raised to try and save the course but to no avail.
