From the Gloucestershire Echo Friday 23rd December 1910 – “An excellent new nine-hole course has been laid out for the Broadway Golf Club by A J Hobley, professional to the Cheltenham Golf Club. The links are right on the top of the hills, the first tee being close to the well-known Fish Inn. Four of the holes are over 400 yards in length.
