CLUB HISTORY
In April 1891 permission was granted a for a golf links to be built between Salthouse and Wain’s Hill Clevedon. Then on 12th August 1891 at a meeting in Clevedon Hall, 37 players of the Clevedon Golf Links, at Wain’s Hill, agreed to form a club called the Clevedon Golf Club with an annual subscription of one guinea. The founding president was a Mr H.G. Hill and one of his two vice-presidents was a Mr E.S. Wills.

In 1892 the Golf Links were extended to 18 holes into the Old Church fields and following that in May 1894 Walton Golf Club was formed playing in Walton Park on a nine-hole course situated close to the current course.

The earliest recorded competition was held on 29th January 1898 when Mr E.S. Wills, playing off a 30, scored 111 to beat Mr H. Church who scored 96, playing off a handicap of 6, by 9 shots. It is of interest to note that Miss C Gibson also played in the same competition, scoring 146 from a handicap of 36, and finished in 6th place.

In October 1898 the members of Clevedon Golf Club playing at Wains Hill complained to their President about of the state of the course, which was unsuitable for golf. The Presidents of Clevedon Golf Club and Walton Golf Club then met later that month and agreed to propose the amalgamation of the two clubs. At a subsequent meeting all 62 members of Clevedon Golf Club and approximately 35 members of Walton Golf Club voted to amalgamate and play on the nine holes at Walton Park. In December of that same year the constitution of Clevedon Golf Club was finalised and the first president Sir E. H. Elton was elected. After the amalgamation of the two clubs there is no further mention of the Wains Hill course. The HQ of the newly located Clevedon Golf Club was at the Walton Park Hotel and a bus was available from the hotel to meet the trains at Clevedon Station and convey golfers either to the hotel or the links, as desired.


Work then start started on extending the 9 holes in Walton Park to an 18-hole course around the castle and the new holes were opened in September 1899, however the original nine holes were then lost to a housing development and the course reverted to the new nine holes around the castle in 1900.

The present clubhouse was originally a farmhouse and was secured in 1903, from the tenant at that time, for a payment of £100. The clubhouse is currently Grade II listed and whilst it has been extensively added to and altered over the years it still retains it’s intimate friendly ambiance.

In 1903 J. H. Taylor was employed, at a cost of £600, to extend the course layout to 18 holes around the Walton Castle and by the Spring of 1908 his work was complete. On the 23 May 1908 a formal opening of the new 18 hole course took place when, on a fine day, J H Taylor and Sandy Herd, both ex-champions, played an exhibition match in the morning scoring respectively 75 and 74 against a par of 78 for the new course. Following a luncheon attended by some 200 local dignitaries Sir Henry Miles proposed the toast to Success to Clevedon Golf Club.

During the First World War the club lost 8 holes to the plough to assist the war effort and during the Second World War it was agreed to plough the golf course and surrounding land, however there is no record of this being carried out.

The course has been subject to many changes since J. H. Taylor’s original layout, the most significant being the construction of 5 new holes, in the early nineties, on land between the Rockwood Covert and West Wood towards Weston in Gordano. The remaining greens have recently been reconstructed to a similar specification.

The course occupies an elevated position with wonderful views across the Severn Estuary and up the Gordano Valley and golfers will enjoy sharing the experience with deer, pheasant and occasional walkers. The course provides an enjoyable challenge to golfers of all abilities

OTHER INFORMATION
Clevedon Golf Club proudly boasts at having one of the most picturesque golf courses in the South West. The views from the course are second to none, with the new Severn Crossing adding to the splendid scenery of the first few holes.

Although Clevedon Golf Club was formed in 1891, golf has been played on the current site upon the old Castle Farm since 1898. In recent years the course has seen some major changes with the introduction of 5 new holes, and the construction of 18 new U.S.G.A. specification greens to meet the demands of golf into the next century.

The course is now in its final layout and provides an excellent test of golf for all standards of golfer from low to high handicap, with a length of 6557 yards, Par 72, SSS 72, from the medal tees and 6348 yards, Par 72, SSS 71, from the forward tees. The Ladies Par is 75, SSS 74, with a measured length of 5980 yards.

The views from the course are nothing short of spectacular with both Severn crossings taking pride of place on several of our holes, along with Bristol and the Mendip Hills on others. However none of these sights will prepare you for the Castle Hole, which is Clevedon’s signature hole. The tee stands 200 feet above the fairway with views over Clevedon, Weston-super-Mare, Flat Holm and Steep Holm and, with the Somerset, Devon and Welsh coasts in the background; we guarantee this is a hole you will never forget.
