Founded 1897. The professionals were William Buckle in 1897/8, Ben Owen 1901 to 1905 and P McLeod 1905 to 1907.
During August 1898 Mr H H Hilton took on professionals Alec Herd and Ben Sayers in an open competition at Trefriw. In the scratch competition Hilton scored 68, Sayers 68 and Herd 70. The amateur played sensational golf and his score included “two strokes in a rabbit-scrape” and a six at the last hole, which he “overdrove”.
