We are not the only ones celebrating a big birthday this year – the Muswell Hill Golf Club is clocking up an impressive 125 years. So, we have got together to celebrate our joint landmark anniversaries.
The Story so Far
Muswell Hill Golf Club was founded on 1 December 1893 at a meeting in the local Green Man Hotel. This inaugural meeting confirmed membership for both men and women, making Muswell Hill one of the oldest ladies golf clubs. By 1899 however, the Club looked doomed as the spectre of urban development threatened the extension of the lease on the land.
Initially there was a 12 hole course, which only grew to 18 holes in 1905. During the First World War, the Club was forced to give up the tenancy of part of the land, and this was divided into allotments, that survive to this day. The course was reduced to 9 holes.
After the war the Club began to lease more land but there was ongoing friction between conservationists and property developers over land use. However, as more land was acquired by the Club so an 18 hole course was established, and in 1931, a new clubhouse was built. During the Second World War, part of the land was used to grow food crops and house ammunition dumps. The final addition to the course was made nearly fifty years ago now – a triangle of land that now encompasses the 12th green and 13th tees.
