Mitchelstown Golf Club, County Cork. (1910 - 1917)

Following is a report from the Cork Examiner Thursday 13th October 1910. “CLUB FOR MITCHELSTOWN - A meeting was held in the Town Hall to discuss the possibility of a golf club in the town. Amongst those present were; The Rev Canon Courtenay-Moore M.A., Brigtown; Rev. Mr Thomes, Kingston College; A D M Webber, J G Skinner, J S Russell J.P., E E Draper, J S Fraser, D Forrest, E O’Brien, D Caset, W E O’Brien, W Sheehy, J L O’Brien, J F Anderson, J O’Kelly-Lynch; B O’Haire, C Twigg, W J Murphy. On the proposition of Mr Skinner, solicitor, the Rev. Canon Moore took the chair. It was not probable that Mitchelstown would become a great golf centre. However, the introduction of a club would be a great benefit to the town socially and commercially, and a golf ground would be a great health resort and afford great amusement in the winter months. Mr Russell said that he understood that a field in Mr Robinson’s Farm would make a splendid golf links and he, Mr Robinson, would be willing to give it for £25. Mr Russell proposed that a club be formed and that the subscriptions be £1 for gentlemen and 10/- for ladies.”

This original course was located were the Ballinwillin Housing Estate is nowadays.

The club moved to its present location in 1917.
