Fulshaw Golf Club, Wilmslow. (1907 - 1923)

The Wilmslow Golf Club originally played on the site of the current Alderley Edge GC. Wilmslow abandoned the course in 1903  and moved to Warford. In 1907 a group of golf enthusiasts established Fulshaw Golf Club at the former Wilmslow course at Brook Lane . Fulshaw Golf Club disappeared in the mid 1920s and became Alderley Edge in 1923.

There was a good turnout in January 1908 for the first monthly medal for the new Fulshaw club, leading scores; J Taylor, 107-25-82; A Rathbone, 89 scratch; F D Dewse, 107-15-92; F N Terry, 117-22-95; A L Bedale, 114-18-96.

The two group pictures below are from the official opening of the course in March 1908. The President was A.J. King MP.

The clubhouse was originally a cricket pavillion, acquired by Stockport GC (at its original site) and then sold on to Fulshaw for £60, including delivery!

A 9 hole course with a membership of 200.  Entry fee for gents was £3/3/0, there was no Entry fee for ladies. Subs for gents were £2/2/0 and ladies £1/1/0. Visitors’ fees were 1/6 a day, weekends and Bank Holidays 2/6 a day, 5/- a week. Ladies 1/- a day. Sunday play allowed without caddies.

Visitors’ fees were 2/6 a day, weekend and Bank Holiday 5/- a day. There were stations at Alderley Edge 1mile and Wilmslow 1 ½ miles.

The club minute books, bizarrely, do not explain why in 1923 the club name was changed to Alderley Edge.
