Stanwick Golf Club, Northants. (1905 - WW1)

The club first appeared in 1905.

A six-hole course laid out on fields belonging to the “Squire of Stanwick” Mr Wetenhall.

Following WW1 the Stanwick course was ploughed up and this prompted a move to Rushden  where the Rushden & District Golf Club was established in 1919.

Below is the result of a match played at Stanwick against Wellingborough Golf Club in March 1908.
