CLUB HISTORY
The City of Nottinghams purchase of Wollaton Hall and Park from Lord Middleton of the Willoughby family was completed on 18th May 1925, at which time Lord Middleton also offered the deer on the park to the city as a gift. The coal-mining Willoughby family had been landowners in the Wollaton area from the 13th century and built the present hall in the late 16th century. Wollaton Hall is a spectacular Tudor building, designed by Robert Smythson and completed in 1588, it is now the home to the citys Natural History Museum.

The first mention of a golf course was at a meeting of the Nottingham City Councils Wollaton sub-committee on 7th May 1925 when it was reported that Tom Williamson, the Notts. Golf Club professional, would be engaged for the sum of 5 guineas to submit a feasibility report on creating a golf course in the park.

Tom, a golf professional, green keeper and club maker from 1896 until his death in 1950, claimed to have worked on all but one of the golf courses within a fifty mile radius of Nottingham and had designed neighbouring Beeston Fields golf course which had opened in 1925. His report was read out by the Town Clerk at a meeting on 4th June 1925 after which the committee proceeded to Wollaton Park for an inspection.

Authority was given by the council on 18th August 1925 for the laying of the golf course on just under 200 acres of Wollaton Park, construction work started in the winter of 1925 and was to take exactly eighteen months to complete. Tom Williamson was paid 150 guineas for supervising the project. The course takes up 140 acres of the 516 acre park.
