East Sheen Golf Club, Greater London. (1890s)

The club was founded 1891.

The professional in 1896/7 was A Thoroughgood. 

In June 1892 East Sheen played a match against Royal Cromer Golf Club.

The following is taken from "Golfing" December 1896. At a meeting of the Barnes District Council it was recommended that a letter be sent to the secretary of the East Sheen Golf Club to the effect that the game should not be allowed on the Common in future.  The committee came to a similar conclusion with regard to golf on Barnes Common.

Councillor Penrhyn said it was not generally known on what lease the Golf Club held the ground. They had, he understood, a verbal lease, which meant year by year, and therefore they were entitled to six months notice."

It was considered that golf was a danger to the public on common land.
