Following from the Norfolk Chronicle Saturday 4th April 1903 – “The Loddon and Hales Golf Club, which has recently been formed under the presidency of Sir Reginald Beauchamp Bart., held an opening meeting on Thursday last week on the new golf course on Hales Green. Messrs. J Kinnell, of the Royal Norwich Golf Club and J Clarke of the Waveney Valley links, played an exhibition game during the afternoon. Play commenced at 3.15, when the Rev. R F Fleming, captain of the club, drove the first ball for Clarke, and Mr S H Fitch, the hon. secretary, played a drive for Kinnell. The match, which was keenly contested, was eventually won by Kinnell, who played around the nine-hole course in 96 strokes for the two rounds, his opponent taking 104. During the afternoon the members of the club and their friends were most hospitably entertained to tea by Mrs Wharton of Loddon-hall.”
