Below is the result of another home club match against Alcester Golf Club played on Saturday 13th April 1895. This should have been a six a side match but the visitors only sent four players. The greens were very fast, which may have accounted for the poor show by the visitors.

The professional in the early 1900s at Pershore was W Stephenson. 

In May 1904 it seems that the Pershore Golf Club had joined forces with Evesham Golf Club. It was reported that the Spring Meeting of the "Evesham and Pershore Golf Club"was being held.
