Cawthorne Golf Club, Barnsley, Yorkshire. (1920s - WW2)

The course was laid out in Cannon Hall Park, Cawthorne. It first appeared in the 1920s and continued until the outbreak of WW2. The secretary was A Knight. 

The area the course occupied on Cannon Hall Country Park was requisitioned by the War Office in 1940 and a camp was erected for the armed forces. 

Following the war the land was used for open cast mining.  

A tee from the original golf course could still be seen (2014).
