History of course:Newbury & Crookham Golf Club is the amalgamation of the old Crookham Course, dating from 1873, and the Newbury District Club, founded in 1923. The Club’s antecedents in the old Crookham club mean that Newbury and Crookham can therefore claim to be the 7th oldest club in England. The Crookham course was laid out in 1873, east of the present course but the area was requisitioned during the Second World War as part of the Greenham airfield.

The Newbury and Crookham clubs merged in 1946, although the old Crookham course had by then disappeared. It was proposed by a Mr Horace de Vere that the name of the new club should be Newbury & Crookham Golf Club and it is to Mr de Vere and to the wisdom and generosity of the Committee of the time that we owe the perpetuation of this important link with golfing history.The present course, which was designed by John H Turner, was laid out in 1923 following the forming of a syndicate by Colonel JA Fairhurst to establish a new club in 1922. Colonel Fairhurst had arranged with Mr Baxendale, Lord of the Manor of Greenham, for the lease of 120 acres of the parkland surrounding the lodge. Included in this were laundry and stables blocks to be used as a clubhouse. The same buildings, with some alteration, remain in use to this day.

During the war years the Ministry of Defence built runways on the 1st, 14th and 15th fairways and the lower holes were confiscated for grazing sheep and cattle! Following the war the course was returned to 18 hole splendour, although remnants of the airfield still remain as blocks of broken concrete buried under the fairways.

Newbury & Crookham’s long links with the past have provided a magnificent display of silverware, 2 of the trophies dating back to 1874.
