Hall Garth Golf Club, Hornsea. (1922 - WW2)

Hall Garth Park opened in 1920 and a 9-hole golf course was laid out two years later.

In the mid 1930s the secretary was Leslie M Hultse, “Avalon” Cliff Road, Hornsea.

At the AGM in March 1935 the balance sheet showed a profit of £4/3s/6d. Mr Ray Whiting was in the chair and Mr L M Hultse, the secretary, gave his report. He pointed out that the report was satisfactory from a financial point of view considering the expenditure, such as the purchase of trophies and improvements to the clubhouse. A disappointing feature was the fact that all the competitions during the year had been poorly supported. The captain’s prize had been won by Mr J Turner. Mr Hultse resigned as secretary; Mr T Parker was elected as secretary and treasurer. The following were elected on to the committee; R Whiting, J Turner and F Brandham.

Competition results for 1938; Tom Parker Memorial Trophy, won by, J A Myers, runner-up, E Blenkin; Captain’s Prizes, E Blenkin & R W Davison; Turton Cup, winner A Brooks, runner-up J D Thompson; Medal competition winners, C Hobson, J D Thompson, A Ball; Bogey competition winner, J R White.
