Craven Park Golf Club, Clapton. (1890s)

Article from “Golf” 29 November 1895 - Craven Park Golf Club, Clapton, North London; A very sporting nine-hole course has been laid out at Upper Clapton by Gourlay Dunn, of Mitcham. The turf throughout the course is good, and the hazards are numerous. In time, the committee propose taking in some more ground and making the course into eighteen holes. The club has enrolled over 100 members, and intends renting a large house about 100 yards from the home hole, which will make a first-class club-house. All particulars may be had from Dr Buck, 23, The Common, Upper Clapton, N.E. The course is private.
