Heversham Head Golf Club, Cumbria. (1930s - WW2)

First appeared in the mid 1930s when the address was Heversham Head Golf Club, Westmoreland. The secretary was J K Jackson, 14 Finkle Street, Kendal. Club membership was 75.

Unfortunately there seemed to be a problem scanning the report below. We know it's from June 1938 regarding the opening of the reconstructed course, at least it's further evidence of the club, very frustrating it's not clearer.
